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.

Description

Margaret Merril is a must for rose gardeners who enjoy heady perfumes.

The fragrance is absolutely divine. Pure white blooms of medium size are shown off on strong upright stems on a bush of dark green glossy foliage. Margaret Merril makes an excellent cut flower and in the garden, standards and mass plantings of bushes will create a wonderful scene.

A good alternative to Iceberg, Margaret Merril has good disease resistance and repeats from
October to May.

Grows approximately
1.5 metres high x 1 metre wide.

Bred by Jack Harkness of Britain and released in 1977.
