Grown more for its blooms, as there is only a slight fragrance, Ballerina has a tight bush like habit that suits either being planted singularly or in a group.
I usually feed a handful of rose fertilizer in March and again in June, sprinkling the dressing around the base and forking in lightly. There are specialist rose fertilizers on the market such as Toprose but the cheaper Growmore is equally as effective.
Ballerina is reasonably resistant to mildrew and rust but although not as badly affected as some roses, Blackspot can be a problem in badly infected areas. In such cases spraying with a suitable garden fungicide is recommended. Pruning is required only to remove the dead flower clusters and to keep it in general shape.
