Patio roses are dwarf floribundas, with full-sized flowers on small bushes, whereas miniature roses are small in every respect. The vivid shapely flowers of 'Conservation', named to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the World Wildlife Fund, are large for a patio rose, plentiful and gathered in large trusses. The plants have a slightly spreading habit and resemble small shrub roses that look excellent in a pot or as a small group at the front of the border. One or two feeds during the flowering season help to sustain later crops, as does deadheading at regular intervals. As a patio rose, it is best pruned from late winter to early spring. Cut back the stems by about a third. After pruning, apply a rose fertiliser.
