In a Nutshell

What we reckon you'll want to know

Full Sun

More than six hours of direct sun per day in summer to thrive.

Outdoor Plant

Grow outside in a garden or patio space.

Hardy

Able to brave tough weather conditions and low temperatures.

Why We Love It

The vibrant red buds of 'Sunny Sky' transform into full, double yellow blooms over time. This cheery bush rose has dark green leaves and fragrant petals that delicately lighten with age.

How to Plant

Position 'Sunny Sky' in full sun. It appreciates moist but well-drained loam, clay or sandy soil of any pH.

Into the Ground

When you're ready to plant your rose, grab your spade, fork and a watering can. You'll also need some compost and fertiliser, and ideally, some rose rootgrow.

  • Mix compost, fertiliser and rose rootgrow into the soil.
  • Dig a hole double the size of the plant's rootball.
  • Place your rose into the hole, with the graft union (where the branches start) level with the top of the soil.
  • Backfill and water well.
  • Every spring, fertilise and mulch. Deadhead and remove spindly growth during the growing season.
  • Prune strong stems back to 10-40 cm long in the first winter after planting.
Into a Pot

If you're giving your rose a pot for a new home, make sure it'll have the space it needs to spread comfortably. When you're ready, grab a trowel, your large pot, compost, mycorrhizal fungi and watering can.

  • Sprinkle in a mixture of compost and mycorrhizal fungi.
  • Tease the roots of the plant and then gently place it into the hole.
  • Backfill soil, firm up and water thoroughly.
  • Every other year, replace the top 5 cm with fresh compost.
