Why We Love It

Introduce classic old rose beauty to your borders with the ‘Susan Williams-Ellis’ rose.

Pure-white blooms emit a wonderful old-fashioned fragrance while plants have proven to be exceptionally resistant to disease.

This medium-size shrub rose repeat flowers throughout the season and while blooms are at their finest when plants are allowed to bask in sunlight, it will perform well in part-shade, too.

Planting Calendar

Plant in January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December.

Planting and Care

Into the Ground

  1. Dig the soil over and fork in some well-rotted garden compost.
  2. Add a sprinkling of general-purpose fertiliser at the rate recommended on the packet.
  3. Dig a hole that’s twice the width of the plant’s root ball and the depth of the blade of your spade.
  4. Remove the plant from its temporary container and place the plant in the centre of the hole, so the graft joint (where the stem joins the rootstock) is at soil level.
  5. Backfill with excavated soil, firm down gently and water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Choose a large pot with drainage holes.
  2. Half-fill the pot with quality compost.
  3. Sit the rose in the pot and adjust the compost level so the top of the temporary container sits around m below the rim of the pot.
  4. Remove the rose from its container and position it in the centre of the pot.
  5. Fill the gap around the edges of the root ball with compost, taking care to ensure that the graft joint (where the stem joins the rootstock) is just above the compost surface.
  6. Firm the compost down, top-up if necessary and water well.
