Bourton House – Plant of the month

Bourton House Plant of the month is Rosa ‘Arthur Bell’
Frequently asked questions about our roses:
Q. “How do you keep them healthy?” A. Choose a tough variety, plant in an airy position with no competing growth, keep your borders clear of rotting vegetation, prune with sharp, clean tools and avoid a humid atmosphere (difficult in muggy weather).
Q. “Why don’t you deadhead them?” A. We do, as often as time allows!
Q. “Do you compost the prunings?” A. No, they go into the council bin.
Q. “Do you feed them?”
A. Yes, with Toprose twice a season, as recommended. They also benefit from the addition of home-made compost when we plant out tender plants around them.
