How to plant La Rose de Molinard
La Rose de Molinard roses should be planted over the winter months, between late autumn and early spring. They are suited to any well-drained soil, but digging some well-rotted garden compost into the planting area beforehand helps. Using Rootgrow when planting will also give your plant a terrific start in its new home.
Fully grown these roses will spread to around 4ft, and should be allowed the necessary space to grow into as they mature. If planting into pots, it is worth noting that the roots of this rose, as with most, grow deep and need plenty of space to allow the plant to reach its fullest, healthiest size. The soil should be kept moist but well-drained throughout flowering and the plants should be fed well with a good quality rose feed at the beginning of the season.
La Rose de Molinard should be planted in partial to full sun for best results, but being fully hardy and very vigorous will grow in almost any aspect except one facing north. It does not like being under trees. Expect flowering continuously from around May until the first frosts. Weeding should be done carefully by hand or with a fork or hoe to avoid root damage. Weeds can be reduced and kept at bay by mulching.
