A very popular hedging rose, the Apple or Ramanas Rose (Rosa rugosa) is a quick-growing, hedging species, putting on between 30cm (1ft) and 60cm (2ft) of height growth each year. A non-evergreen rose and distinguished by its prominent, appealing large, reddish-orange hips which form in summer and last well into winter. Delicate single white coloured flowers, which are in marked contrast to the pink flowered Apple Rose, are very fragrant , keep forming throughout summer. An attractive idea is to plant both the white and pink flowered Apple Rose varieties as they compliment each other. The branches of an Apple Rose are covered in masses of small prickly thorns, hence its attraction in forming an impenetrable barrier.
Our Apple Rose hedging trees are sold as plug plants, in other words the roots are encased in compost. This means that planting can be carried out at any time of the year, provided they are watered in periods of drought, compared to bare-root plants which can only be planted during the plants normal dormant period (November to March). All of these trees are UK grown, which is important for successful establishment.
Feeding Or Fertilizing This is a task that can easily be over done. Any nitrogen based fertilizer will do such as 20:20:10 but the longer lasting ones which take 18/24 months are better as they are regulated by the weather and moisture therefore release slowly.
