  6. Seedlings and hybridising

    Seedlings and hybridising

    On our show plant and hybridising nursery, which is separate and isolated from our main nursery, we are down to a skeleton crew. Just me. So without the major spring flower shows to look forward to it seems very quiet here at the moment, but the plants keep some kind of normality to life. The seedlings are now growing lovely and hybridising has started. Bringing us full circle. Did you know some roses like Rosa banksiae can only be produced from cutting? These cuttings were moved from modular cells to small pots in late February and will shortly need repotting again.

  7. Preparing for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020 - 3

    Preparing for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020 - 3

    It’s a hard life being a pampered show plant with no show to go to. It’s been a challenging couple of weeks, with things changing almost daily. Things started off very relaxed as most of the roses were coming back into growth evenly and in good shape. Many were also showing very early signs of bud initiation. This can vary and some years plants will come back into growth very unevenly and may have a large percentage of blind shoots that start to grow. Blind shoots are stems that produce no flowering buds, but instead end in a leaf. This is usually due to harsh winter weather, or the age of the plant. Normally a light pruning will kick start the plant back into growth and isn’t an issue for our show roses, provided we get our timings right! Well, it was

  8. Preparing for the Chelsea Flower Show - Rose care

    Preparing for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020 - 2: Rose care

    When growing show plants, hygiene and air movement are vitally important. Even at this time of year. So, before the roses are housed, all glasshouses and equipment are fully cleaned. There are also some roses that never fully drop all their leaves and leaf stalks during the winter. As well as the odd hip and old flower stem which may still be left after the winter pruning. These are all places where pests and diseases could overwinter. Therefore, since starting to house the roses, we have been checking each plant to remove any old leaves, hips and unwanted wood. Good air movement is also very important, as damp stagnant air is the quickest way for fungal attacks to start. Watering is kept to mornings, often using watering cans for spot watering rather than hoses, so less water

  9. Preparing for the Chelsea Flower Show - The start of spring

    Preparing for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020 - 1: The start of spring

    It may be the start of metrological spring, but we have actually been fooling our show plants that it’s been spring for a while now. Currently we have around 2,000 roses under glass in preparation for the RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows. At the beginning of the year we carefully bring the roses into the glasshouses in 4 large groups. The first batch is brought in during the first few days of January (some of this batch will be used at the Hampton
