Rose 'Blue Moon' is an exquisite Hybrid Tea variety that has icy-blue petals and stands atop long, elegant stems reaching a mature height of 90cm. These wonderful flowers have the added bonus of being fragrant and so we recommend planting where they can be enjoyed such as the garden border or patio containers. They are also a favourite with florists as they are an excellent cut-flower and make a marvellous display to be enjoyed within the home or given as a gift. We recommend planting in rich, fertile soil in sunny or partially shaded locations for optimum results. The flowers will appear from June through to September and will require pruning from mid-March dependant on frost. We supply only top quality bare rooted rose bushes.

Planting & Growing Instructions
It is vital that roses are planted firmly, to ensure that winds will not damage or disrupt the roots. Apply a balanced fertiliser every 3-4 weeks in the spring/summer and it is also recommended that you apply a mulch in the winter for protection.Can be pruned back to remove any dead wood or growth.It is best to plant roses in winter or early spring, provided there is little frost. To plant, dig a hole large enough to take the roots when fully outspread. Distribute the roots evenly around the hole and put in a little fine soil to which hasbeen added a small amount of bonemeal. Fill in a further 5cm of ordinary soil over the roots and tread in firmly. Generally speaking the depth of planting roses will vary between 10-20cm, but examination of the plants should let you know quiteclearly the depth to plant.
