PLANTING, POSITION AND PREPARATION

Roses require 5-6 hours of full sun per day for best performance. Roses tolerate a wide range of soil types, but your garden bed must be well drained. If your soil is lacking in quality or drainage, mix a premium potting mix or mulch or your own compost into your soil. Dig a hole approx 500 x 500 x 300mm deep. Plant your rose halfway up the main trunk, do not cover the graft or the trunk where branches begin. Water in well. If winter rains do not occur, water your rose every two weeks. Do not feed your rose at this time. Feed during early spring with a well balanced slow release fertiliser.

Strength and vigour are very apparent in this rose as the leathery leaves are quite disease resistant. An excellent long-stemmed cut flower with few thorns and will repeat flower throughout the season.

Truly unique in colour, Blue Moon was bred in 1964 by Tantau of Germany.

Grows approximately 2 metres high x 1.5 metres wide.
