Growing The Anniversary Rose

Suitable for any well drained soil, they thrive on clay as long as the site isn't waterlogged in winter. These roses are not recommended for growing in pots. Although they stand up to hot conditions well, their flowers will last a little longer with a bit of shade around midday or early afternoon.

In the early years, you might find the blooms to be quite short-lived. This should improve as your rose puts down deeper roots by its third or fourth year, combined with attentive watering in dry weather and appropriate feeding. 

Did You Know?

Bred by William Radler at Meilland International, registered as MEIclusif, and introduced as Forget-Me-Not in 2005, it has been sold under a few different names around the world: Dee-Lish in the USA, Elbflorenz (referring to Dresden, the "Florence on the Elbe"), Line Renaud, Sweet Parfum de Provence, and Tchekhov.

The seed parent was Aachener Dom, and the pollen came from a cross of Louis de Funès and Graham Thomas.

It has won a stack of awards around the world, including seven for its fragrance.

Planting Instructions

How to plant Hybrid Tea Roses

If planting against a wall, leave about a 45cm (18") space.

Dig a hole deep enough to place the graft union between your rose's stem and roots at soil level (so it's at approximately the same level in the soil as it was before being transplanted), with plenty of room for the roots to spread out.
Improve the soil from the hole by removing rubbish, large stones, weeds and roots, then mixing in about 25% by volume of well rotted compost or manure and dusting it with bone meal. It is usually more convenient to do the mixing on a ground sheet or in a wheelbarrow. 

If your rose is bareroot, wet the roots before planting. It often helps to make a small mound at the base of the hole to set the base of the rose onto and spread the roots over.
If pot grown, soak the pot and then gently loosen some of the roots. Sprinkle some Rootgrow onto the soil, put the rose on top of it, and sprinkle the rest over the roots. 

When the roots are spread out and the graft union is level with the soil, backfill the hole with the improved soil, firming it down as you go. Water in thoroughly, water again two days later, and then keep watering in dry spells during the first and second growing seasons. 

Ornamental roses are hungry feeders and flower best when they are mulched every year and given rose food during the growing season.
