Deadheading Roses

With a garden party being held in the Provost's rose garden this and next weekend, the faded blooms of the roses need to be removed using a simple process called 'deadheading'. The old fashioned roses, including the varieties 'Capitaine John Ingram', 'Cardinal de Richlieu', 'Charles de Mills', 'Ferdinand Pichard' and 'Great Maidens Blush', all flower just the once so the deadheading tidies up the roses, leaving only the fresh blooms. By early July all the roses will have finished flowering, all the faded blooms removed and the under planting of perennials will then be providing the display throughout the summer.
