Large, native fast growing deciduous shrub with arching branches bearing 5cm (2ins) wide white to pale pink flowers in June followed by glossy red egg-shaped hips in autumn. The flowers are nectar rich making them attracctive to bees and pollinating insects and the hips provide food for birds in winter, or can be used to make rose-hip syrup. This rose will happily climb through an existing hedge or shrubs using its strong hooked thorns to anchor itself.

HEDGE Trim in winter if necessary. For hedges 120 - 150cm (4 - 5ft). Plant 30 - 45cm (12 - 18ins) apart. Can be used to thicken a mixed hedge.

SHRUB 1.8 x 1.2m (6 x 4ft). Shrub, climber.

Bare-Root Plants (including Seedlings and Transplants)

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Seedlings are grown from seed and are typically 1-2 years old. Transplanted plants have been lifted from the ground and replanted. This encourages a better fibrous root system and makes the plant stronger and bushier.

Cell Grown Plants

These plants are grown in small polythene pots (or cells) and can be planted at any time of the year.

Availability

Cell Grown are generally available all year. Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.

Planting Distances for planting as a Hedge

We recommend planting Rose, Dog Rose in a single row between 30cm/12ins apart and 45cm/18ins apart:

Planting closer will mean the plants will grow together and form a hedge quicker, but requires more plants.

To calculate the number of plants needed for a length of hedging, click on Planting Distance Calculator above.

Planting Guide & RootGrow

We recommend planting with RootGrow. The recommended amount for RootGrow for an order will be shown in your shopping basket.

We will send out a planting guide with your order, you also can find a guide to planting here.

Pruning

Hedging - As a general rule, plants grown for hedging need pruning to encourage side branching. Usually the harder a plant is pruned the bushier it will be. If they are not pruned there is a danger that the hedges will be thin and bare at the base and that the tips of the plants will die back. If the plant is naturally bushy, less or sometimes no pruning will be needed to achieve a dense hedge.

Rose, Dog Rose: Cut back by about one half or more, and again during the second winter.
