Stunningly beautiful and with legendary, exciting perfume, Margaret Merrill is one of the very best Bush roses you can buy. It's gorgeous, big Floribunda ivory-white blooms flower prolifically against a vigorous, bushy habit, and regrow rapidly from late spring until the first frosts giving you more flowers, more often.
This coupled with a wonderful fragrance that will waft through the air, make it perfect for transforming your garden throughout summer into autumn each year, and brilliant for cutting for indoor displays. It makes a great tidy Bush rose for bigger pots or mixed borders, the white flowers standing out in high Summer.

To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.
Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and donít worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.
Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
