Description

Full 10″ blooms with superb form – a very welcome addition! This is a vigorous grower and we found this made a very good size large when grown 6 up. Too much restriction on the number of blooms grown will cause flowers to become a bit misshapen. For the best size flowers remove the growing point when 4-5 pairs of leaves have developed and thin resulting side shoots down to allow 5-6 shoots to develop (5 if for exhibition). Once the terminal bud has developed and is about the size of a 10p piece 3 pairs of the side buds can be removed to further maximise flower size. Do not restrict too much by stripping out all side buds as this may lead to oversize blooms! If you are growing solely for garden display then all flowers can be allowed to develop but resulting flowers will be smaller. Dead head regularly. Raiser Gordon Hodgson.
