How to take care of Leonardo Da Vinci
Choose a sunny site that gets at least 4 to 5 hours of sun. Soak any bare root roses in a bucket of water overnight before planting to help rehydrate them. For potted roses, water the pot thoroughly and let them sit in the water until ready to plant.
Never plant Leonardo Da Vinci during frost. If planting cannot take place immediately, keep Leonardo Da Vinciin the packaging in a cold but frost-free place. Remove any stones and clumps and loosen the soil a little, dig a hole around approx.
30cm away from the fence or wall. For best results add well-rotted manure or compost to the soil. If planting bare root roses, form a small mound of soil in the centre of the planting hole. Plant Leonardo Da Vinci so that the neck of the rose is about 5 cm below the ground.
Fill the planting hole in and sprinkle some bone meal around the plant before pressing down firmly. Always water well after planting. Never let the rose fertiliser come in direct contact with the roots, there needs to be at least 10 cm between the roots and rose fertiliser.
When Leonardo Da Vinci is established and has filled the space available, excessive growth can be pruned back at any time. In late autumn or winter, flowered side shoots can be pruned back by two-thirds of their length.
Use special Fertilizer regularly to encourage new growth during the following growth season.
