    Malvern Hills is almost unique in that it is a repeat flowering rambler. It blooms intermittently throughout the summer, bearing small, fully double blooms of rich coppery-yellow, in medium to large clusters. There is a light, noisette fragrance. The growth is a strong and slender, with attractive polished foliage and few thorns. It will easily cover an arch, or it will achieve 10 - 12ft on a wall or trellis.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is at soil level.

    All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out 'bare root' plants unpotted, but we don't as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
