White Wild Rose - Planting Instructions

Sowing Time

  • Bare root shrubs are planted from October to March
  • Avoid frosty conditions

Trench Preparation

  • Prepare hole / trench approx. 2ft wide & 2ft deep
  • Add farm yard manure to base of the trench / hole
  • Lightly cover the manure with a layer of soil

Positioning Plants

  • For hedging, space plants 30 - 60cm apart
  • When planting - hold plants at ground level & back fill the top soil
  • Ensure each plant is straight & soil is compacted in around it's root ball
  • Level off the soil around the plants

Handling the Plants

  • Be sure to water both before & after planting
  • When plants arrive, plant them straight away
  • If you are unable to plant straight away - then 'heel them in' temporarily
  • Keep plant's roots in their bag & avoid exposure to sun light
  • Take care not to damage roots, bark & buds

After Care

  • Water bare roots plants regularly until plants establish
  • Water before & after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young hedge
  • A new hedge will need to be weeded at least 3 times over the growing season
    • Weed in March, June & September
    • We recommend using weed membrane & mulch to control weeds

Pruning

  • Prune back in in late Summer, once flowers have faded
  • Prune all stems back by ⅓
  • Every few years cut back old growth - this will encourage new, healthy stems
  • Continue to deadhead flowers & prevent hips developing
    • This will encourage new flowers & save plant's energy
  • By late Summer allow hips to develop
    • This provides food for wild birds over Winter
