Rose Lavender Lassie Care.
Rose Lavender Lassie is an easy rose to grow in Australian conditions, no special treatment is required. Prune back 1/3 each year and regenerate by removing 1/3 of old canes every few years.
Fertilize regularly with a specialist rose food for best results, although we do know a gentleman who has been growing this rose for many years who uses pelletised poultry manure in late winter, masses of flowers.
