Roses in the autumn

Roses in the Autumn

The Roses here at Rosemoor have mostly finished blooming now with some exceptions; in the Cottage garden some are putting up a bit of a late show and, although the number of blooms on display is a mere smattering compared to the exuberance of their Summer offering, these flowers are a welcome sight and lift the spirits on an overcast and rainy day. I’m pleased tosee that Rosa ‘Stanwell Perpetual’ is living up to its name and still producing its pink sweetly scented blooms, just right for a small vase for the dining table.

 Roses still blooming in the Queen Mother’s Rose Garden include apricot yellow Rosa 'Grace'.

For the taller growing roses that have completely finished their flowering, now is a good time to reduce the height to avoid the wind rocking the plant on its roots. As a rough guide I usually shorten their height by about a third, this makes them more compact and therefore reduces the amount of damage caused by strong winds.

Pruning the roses to prevent wind - rock

 

If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to tidy up the once flowering rambler roses. Over the summer, hopefully, they would have sent up lots of new canes which, if tied in now, will provide the display for next year. The once-flowering ramblers could be dealt with earlier, say from September onwards, but we delay our pruning so that we may fully appreciate the clematis that we have growing with them. Using clematis with roses is a good way to extend the season of interest in the rose gardens, but be careful when selecting clematis as companions for roses and choose the late flowering varieties that flower on their current seasons’ growth. This allows you to prune them at the same time as the roses; the new growth that they will produce next year will carry the flowers that will complement the roses next summer.

Wonderful to see some roses in the fall!  Would you have a list (or reference to one) of rose/clematis combos that work together in bloom time, colour and pruning?
