Why We Love It

Think pink with the petite 'Diamond Wishes' rose and its appealing light fragrance.

This small plant packs a serious punch as it brims with clusters of medium-pink double blooms from June to September.

These pretty-in-pink flowers flourish against a backdrop of mid-green glossy foliage.

Bushy and compact during the growing season its leaves will then disappear to get some rest ready to return next spring.

This miniature patio shrub reaches approximately 0.5 m high by 0.5 m wide and its size makes it perfect for growing in containers.

Otherwise try planting into a border or creating a low flower-filled hedge.

It's easy to grow wherever you decide to plant it – just make sure it gets lots of sun.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

The 'Diamond Wishes' rose will grow best in moist but well-drained soil, in full sun. Prune annually by removing dead and diseased stems – you can safely shorten stems by up to a third.

Into the Ground

Grab some well-rotted organic matter, fertiliser and your spade.

  1. Mix the organic matter and fertiliser into the top of your soil.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of your rose's roots.
  3. Loosen the roots of your rose if necessary. Place your rose into the hole.
  4. Ensure the graft union (where the stems grow from the root) is level with the soil around your plant.
  5. Backfill your hole.
  6. Each spring, apply fertiliser followed by a layer of mulch.
  7. Water well in dry periods and prune your rose during its first winter.

Into a Pot

Your container should have drainage holes and enough room for your plant's roots to spread. You'll also need loam-based compost and your trowel.

  1. Cover the drainage holes in your pot with stones or pieces of a broken pot.
  2. Add the compost to your container, pressing it lightly as you do to prevent air pockets from forming.
  3. When it's filled halfway, place your rose in the pot. Check that the graft union (where the stems start to grow) is approximately 5 cm below the top of the pot.
  4. Fill your container with compost. Water your rose well.
  5. Use a rose fertiliser each spring.
  6. Every two years remove and replace the top 5 cm of compost.
