The Alnwick® Rose (Ausgrab)
David Austin Recommended Variety
Category English Roses
(English Rose Collection)
Bred By David Austin
Colour: Soft Pink
Flower Type: Double/Full Bloom
Size: Medium Shrub
Fragrance Old Rose with a hint of raspberry
Special Characteristics: Very beautiful, full flowers of a lovely soft pink. Strongly fragrant.
Pretty rich pink, cup shaped buds gradually open to a deeply cupped flower; later developing into a broad, full-petalled, shallow cup of a soft pink which is paler at the outer edges - a most pleasing progression. The flowers are beautiful at all stages; this illustrates very well the great variety of form to be found in the Old Rose style. 'The Alnwick Rose' has nice rounded, bushy growth and produces its bloom intermittently from early summer to the onset of frost. Plentiful green foliage ideally complements the flower. There is a good Old Rose fragrance with just a hint of raspberry. We are pleased to name this rose after the superb Alnwick Garden. The Duke and Duchess of Northumberland are constructing what we believe will be one of the great gardens of Britain, which will include many English Roses.
4 ft x 2.5 ft.
Choose a light airy position, preferably not overhung by trees.
Roses will benefit from a generous quantity of well rotted manure or garden compost and some rose food mixed into the soil prior to planting.
Roses like to spread their roots so prepare a good sized hole about 2ft. across 18" deep (60cm x 45cm).
Make sure that container plants are well soaked before planting.
After planting, firm the soil well but not excessively.
Water in well. It is important to keep plants well watered until well established.
Regular watering during dry conditions will encourage more flowers, a stronger plant and better health.
Apply David Austin rose food ;-) in early spring and again in June.
To help prevent moisture loss during dry weather, apply a 5-8cm layer of garden compost or will-rotted manure around the base of the plant, covering the root area. Composted bark or wood chips are also suitable.
Prune to between two thirds and one third of overall size, in January or February. Remove any dead or damaged growth.
