Thankyou so much - This is it!!!!

Why would the store change the name in the first place is beyond me??

We are just in the process of re-doing the side garden and was thinking about putting them in the ground at the side of a seating area - what do you think? Is there anything special I should do beforehand or any different way to look after them?

Your help is much appreciated.................I'm so happy I've found it at long last

Hi, I bought a small patio rose in our local morrisons last year, it was called 'White Dream' and stated it was suitable for patio pots.

It is a beautiful white rose and last year had only a few flowers. I followed advice about cutting it back and this year I don't know whats happened but it

is a monster     and is so top heavy I don't know what to do with it. I would hate to think the pot was now too small and it wasnt getting what it needed although I feed it as reccommended.

On each branch there are at least 15 - 20 buds of all different sizes and if these all flower the rose is just going to topple over with the weight.

Does anyone else have this variety of rose? I have tried to find it on the web to look for advice and the  variety 'White Dream'  isn't listed ???????

I would so much appreciate your help of what to do with this monster  'Patio' rose

Thank you

Lots of advice on here about the crystals. I think its a trial and error way for us all and to usewhatever way suits you best after trying a few.

Personally I would never wet them before adding to compost -  far too messy!! as for adding slow release fertiliser I also do this and it makes a great potting compost - done in a large batch can save lots of time for future potting up, just keep it well sealed so it doesnt dry out - Weather still dreary and dark in Leeds, we are all fed up  too...roll on the sunshine then we can all sit in our little havens of garden and enjoy it.......happy gardening everyone xxx
