x-Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll'
Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll' is one of the most popular of the David Austin roses. It is grown for its beautifully strong old rose scent from large deep pink full double blooms.
It can be grown either as a bush or as a short climber simply by adjusting the extent to which it is prunned back over the winter.
Large double roses such as these are best given plenty of high potash feed from June, together with regular dead heading so that you can keep this variety flowering through the summer into the autumn.
