Planting Data

optimist22's Petite Francoise Care Instructions

Look to ensure a distance 3.96 feet (1.22 metres) between seeds when sowing - cover at a depth of at least 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) deep if you are going to sow this directly in the garden.

Rose normally grows to a mature height of 2.00 metres (that's 6.50 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8b) is within the ideal range for Rose. The recommended range is between Zone 5 and 9.

Ensure your soil has a ph of between 4.5 and 8.0 as Rose is a acidic to alkaline soil loving plant.

Keep an eye out for these common Rose problems: Blackspot, Powdery Mildew, Aphids, Bristly Rose Slug, and Rose Slug.
