Why We Love It

Bring a cheerful splash of colour to your outdoor space with the 'Laura Ford' miniature climbing rose.

Clusters of deep yellow flowers sit on top of an abundance of dark glossy leaves but the petals can also sometimes take on a pink tint as they age.

Like most roses the blooms will continue throughout summer and autumn.

This compact variety is a great option for growing in a pot – make sure you position it somewhere it will get enough sun.

As a versatile rose the 'Laura Ford' will be just as happy climbing up a wall or planted in a border.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

The 'Laura Ford' miniature climbing rose is does best in a sunny part of the garden. It will thrive in most soil types – just make sure it is fertile and well-drained.

Into the Ground

Grab your spade, fork, watering tool, a bucketful of compost and some general-purpose fertiliser. The plant will also want something to climb up.

  1. Mix your compost and fertiliser into the top 20-30 cm of the soil.
  2. Dig a hole double the size of the plant's rootball.
  3. Pop the rose in the hole with the graft union (the point where the branches start) lined up with the top of the ground.
  4. Backfill the hole and water well.
  5. Feed your rose with fertiliser and top-dress with mulch every spring.
  6. In the first winter after planting, prune strong stems back to 30-40 cm above the ground.

Into a Pot

Make sure your container is big enough for the plant to stretch its roots. You'll also need a spade or trowel, a watering tool and a blend of compost and potting soil with perlite and bonemeal.

  1. Raise your container so it drains easily.
  2. Dig a hole double the width of the plant's rootball.
  3. Pop the rose in the hole, levelling the graft union (the point where the branches start) with the top of the soil.
  4. Backfill the hole with your soil and compost mixture.
  5. Water well.
  6. Repot every couple of years in a bigger pot with fresh compost.
