Rose YELLOW BUTTON – one of the first yellow English roses D. Austin. The company has not sold this rose since the 80s of the twentieth century. She, in their opinion, is a weak plant. For breeding new varieties, the plant is also not promising because it forms little pollen and seeds. However, it can be found among rose collectors and they will willingly (we think) share with you. The English rose YELLOW BUTTON forms a round and low bush, and the aroma of its flowers is soft, with fruit notes.

Take care of a YELLOW BUTTON rose like this:
- Planting for roses is the most important step in leaving them. Rose YELLOW BUTTON prefers shaded areas with well-arranged drainage. It grows on almost all types of soils .. The earth must be loose in order to allow enough water and air to pass to the root system.
- Watering. Roses are watered as necessary – 10 liters of water per 1 adult bush on average 2 – 3 times a week. In dry times, watering is more frequent. If the English rose YELLOW BUTTON grows in a container, then it is watered more often. In both cases, it all depends on weather conditions.
- Fertilizing with fertilizers is carried out at least 3-4 times during the growing season. It can be both mineral fertilizers and organic. Vitamins are also given to roses, which the plant receives through spraying. For roses growing in pots, top dressing is more frequent, but smaller doses are used.
- Pruning roses depends on the group to which it belongs. Pruning is done twice: in summer, faded parts are constantly cut to stimulate the appearance of new flowers. In autumn, winter or early spring, pruning is done to form the plant and prevent it from diseases or pests hiding under the bark of the plant. The potted rose of YELLOW BUTTON is also pruned.
- Loosening and weeding the soil around the rose bush is necessary for the circulation of air, moisture and nutrients for the root system. To minimize your labor, use mulching. So you can reduce the number of weeds and the soil will be longer wet. This applies to container roses.
- Be sure to cover the English rose YELLOW BUTTON, growing in pots and open ground. She has a low frost threshold. In the temperate and subpolar zones, she will certainly make shelter. In the subtropics and tropics, she hibernates without him.
Enjoy your cultivation!
