Margaret Merril Rose Bush
Please Note: Occasionally stems may be damaged in transit. If this should occur then please prune the stem down to the nearest healthy leaf and your rose will flourish.
This is the rose that inspired Rosebie Morton to set up The Real Flower Company. The quintessential English rose, it has a stunning aroma and beautiful shape, with milky white petals with a delicate blush tone. A compact and neat rose, it is ideally suited to growing in a pot but can also be planted in a bed.Bush Specifics

Grown in our sustainable South Downs Rose Paddock, where we nurture 30,000 rose bushes for cut flowers, each of our rose plants has been hand-tended by our small team. Your rose will be delivered in a tall pot to allow the long roots to grow straight and strong. Our rose plants can be left in their pot for up to a year (but they will need to be kept watered and fed), or planted out at any time throughout the year.How to Plant Your Rose in the Ground
1. Choose a day when there is no frost.
2. Remove the rose from its pot and soak it a bucket of water for at least an hour.
3. Dig a hole that’s at least 50cm deep and at least twice the width of the roots.
4. Do not bend the rose's roots when it is placed in the hole. Make sure the root union (the bulbous part at the base of the branches) is covered with at least 5cm of soil.
5. Fill the hole around the rose with good-quality compost and a fertiliser such as Vitax Q4.
6. Water in well and keep well watered. We recommend giving the rose a long soak around once a week over the spring and summer to encourage the roots to grow strong and down.

We do our best to create bouquets and arrangements that replicate the product image, but as nature is unpredictable we do sometimes have to make substitutions to the flowers or foliage.
Some bouquets/arrangements ingredients can cause irritation. If you have any special requirements or allergies please contact our team firstname.lastname@example.org or call us 01730 818 300.
We will try and inform you of any changes but rest assured the bouquets or hatboxes will look as beautiful and smell as heavenly as the original.Scent Rating: 9/10Share:
