Planting Graham Thomas rose bushes is a delightful experience for any gardener. These roses are known for their stunning yellow blooms, which emit a sweet and delicate fragrance. To begin, select a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of the plant and loosen the soil at the bottom of the hole. Mix compost or well-rotted manure with the soil, then place the rose bush in the hole. Ensure that the crown of the plant is level with the surrounding soil. Fill the hole with soil and gently firm it down with your hands. Water the plant thoroughly, and apply a layer of mulch around the base to help retain moisture.
Pruning Graham Thomas rose plants is an important part of their care, as it helps to maintain their shape, promote healthy growth, and encourage the production of more blooms. The best time to prune is in late winter or early spring before new growth appears. Begin by removing any dead, damaged, or diseased wood, cutting back to healthy wood just above an outward-facing bud. Then, remove any weak or crossing branches, aiming to create an open, airy framework that allows light and air to circulate freely.
The Graham Thomas rose typically blooms in early summer, with a peak bloom period in late spring to early summer. The exact blooming season may vary depending on the climate and growing conditions in a particular location. In warmer regions, the plant may bloom earlier, while in cooler areas, blooming may be delayed until mid-summer. The blooms of the Graham Thomas rose are large, cup-shaped, and golden-yellow in colour, with a strong, sweet fragrance that is a hallmark of this variety.

To train a Graham Thomas rose as a climber, it is important to select a sturdy support structure and tie the canes to the support at regular intervals as the plant grows.
