Growing Zepeti Roses

To grow roses in pots, it is best to use good quality, peat free, soil-based compost. During the growing season, don't let their pots dry out, and give them a liquid feed about once per week to once per fortnight.

Trim your patio roses only lightly for their first couple of years while they settle in, then prune them as you would a floribunda in early spring to keep them plump and bushy: remove twiggy growth, then prune the main stems by about a third, down to a suitable bud or lateral stem. 
At the same time as you prune a mature patio rose, it is good to pull them out every few years, refresh the compost, and put them back in the pot, or in a bigger one if you started off small.

Repeating roses should be dead headed to keep them flowering strongly.

Did You Know? 

Bred in 1940 by Alain Meilland and introduced in 2019 as Zepeti. It is also sold as The Petite Knock Out Rose.
It has an unusually high level of intellectual property protection under a U.S. Utility Patent, which forbids all breeding, hybridisation, propagation, and other development, unlike a normal plant patent which only restricts propagating it and then selling those plants. These types of patents have been noted as criminalising bees, which will visit all the roses in an area, spreading pollen and breaking the patent every time. 

It won gold, Médaille d'Or at the 2020 Nyon New Rose Trials, and a Certificate of Merit at the 2018 Monaco Rose Trials.
