Rabbit problem
Barbara Lee Brehm from WA wrote (September 27, 2014):
Cover small, newly transplanted Rosa Westerland with net to protect her from rabbit foraging. Once it is above nose height, the rabbits will leave it alone.
Now this produces a fragrant cloud
Karen from NY wrote (August 14, 2013):
I wanted a larger replacement for a spot by the porch that had previously harbored a dear, departed Gypsy Dancer, and this seemed to fit the bill. It has had to compete with the root rose from the Gypsy Dancer, a very vigourous unscented red, and a volunteer lilac, but it is still quite large. It is more of a rebloomer than a continuous, and the second bloom isn't very strong. However, just a few of these roses fills the area with a wonderful fragrance. The flowers age better (less splotchy) than many orange roses. Our climate is more of a 4 and we have had a couple bad winters since planting, and it hasn't died. Altogether, I'm glad I bought it.

All of these steps, from rose research, planting, budding, growing, harvesting and storing, are essential to ensure you receive a healthy, vigorous Jackson & Perkins rose plant, the WORLD’S FINEST ROSE.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
