How to plant Alfred de Dalmas Roses
Alfred de Dalmas 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. The plants should be fed well with a good quality rose feed at the beginning of the season.
Alfred de Dalmas should be planted in partial to full sun for best results, but being totally hardy it will grow in almost any aspect except one facing north. Like all roses except large ramblers it does not like being under trees. Weeding should be done by hand or with a hoe to avoid root damage. Weeds can be reduced and kept at bay by mulching.
