How to take care of Queen Elizabeth
Choose a sunny site that gets at least 4 to 5 hours of sun. Water the pot thoroughly. Never plant Queen Elizabeth during frost. If planting cannot take place immediately, keep Queen Elizabeth 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. Plant Queen Elizabeth 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 Queen Elizabeth is established and has filled the space available, excessive growth can be pruned back at any time. In late 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.
