BRINDABELLA CULTURE NOTES for commercial growers:
Media – Use a porous, free-draining mix.  Substrates may include a blend of bark, coir, peat, sand and perlite depending on the grower’s preference and region. 
Fertility – Pre-plant incorporate a slow-release granular fertilizer. Top dress as needed.
Planting – Plant immediately upon receipt of liners.  One liner per pot.  Do not bury the crown.
Exposure – Full sun in field production. If greenhouse grown, provide 30% shade.
Irrigation regimen – Water at regular intervals, allowing pots to dry down between irrigation cycles to where pots are moist but not wet.  Water early in the day to ensure that foliage is dry overnight.
Pinching/Pruning – Pinching at planting isn’t required but doing so will encourage branching. Likewise, pruning during production is not necessary as Brindabella Roses are naturally well-branched and exhibit early bud production and flowering. However, plants will respond well to pruning. 
Pest management – As with any rose production regimen, it is essential to maintain a thorough integrated pest management approach, with regular scouting practices to monitor for symptoms of downy mildew and twospotted spider mites.  Early treatment is essential with high efficacy fungicides and miticides at full label rates.  Brindabella Roses are inherently resistant to blackspot and powdery mildew, although producers should still monitor for infection and treat if necessary. 

Brindabella roses: Modern shrub roses with fully formed, fragrant flowers

Born in Australia and now available in America, the Brindabella rose varieties set a new standard for shrub roses. Superior genetic resistance to fungal diseases such as black spot and powdery mildew reduce risk and the need for chemicals. A bushy growing habit with dense foliage and large, double fragrant flowers form the perfect combination of old fashioned familiarity with modern performance.
Plant in beds or your favorite large patio pot. Available in seven spectacular varieties.
