Product Information

Witness a beautiful show as a mass of raspberry-red blooms grow for months on the impressive ‘Little Sid’ rose.

This patio rose bursts to life from spring, with light red petals that darken towards the centre, while boasting a repeat flowering nature to continually erupt with colour all the way through to autumn.

Dark, glossy foliage acts as a bed for the flower clusters to grow, producing an excellent colour contrast. The plant is a reliable grower, with a short and bushy habit – perfect for planting throughout the garden, including in patio pots, beds, and borders.

What’s more, this variety is loved by pollinators and will attract bees and butterflies to transform any garden into a haven of wildlife.

For every rose sold, we are proud to donate £5 to support the outstanding work of Ambitious about Autism (registered charity no. 1063184.) This is a national charity that runs specialist schools and colleges for autistic children and young people in London and the South East of England.

‘Little Sid’ is named after Sid Wallace, a young boy who is autistic and non-speaking, and the son of television presenter Gregg Wallace.

On the launch of this rose, Gregg said: “Raising an autistic child has many challenges but also great joys, as other families with lived experience will know. Anna and I are very proud of our wonderful son Sid and this rose is a celebration of him and all autistic young people.''

Supplied as a bare root rose, ready for planting.

Care Information

Planting Advice for 'Little Sid' Bare Root

  • Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
  • Roses tolerate a wide range of soil but will thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone (wash your hands afterwards!)
  • Plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level.
  • Holding the bare root upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Use your heel to compact the soil around the plant to ensure good contact around the roots. Water in well.
  • Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again in late July.

Pruning Advice for 'Little Sid' Bare Root

  • To prune, 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 don’t 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.
