Roses are typically non-toxic to pets. Ingesting parts of a rose bush, primarily the stems and leaves, can lead to minor gastrointestinal irritation due to the plant's thorns and fibrous material.

The Jacqueline du Pré rose should be watered deeply once a week, providing about 1 to 1.5 gallons of water each time during the growing season. In hot, dry periods, increase the frequency to twice per week. Ensure the water penetrates the soil to about 18 inches to encourage deep root growth. Decrease watering to every two weeks in the fall and limit watering in the winter to prevent the roots from sitting in too much moisture.
The Jacqueline du Pré rose thrives in full sunlight with at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered light per day. It's best planted where it can receive morning sunlight, which dries dew from the leaves and helps prevent fungal diseases. The plant can tolerate partial shade, but too little light may reduce flowering and vigor.
The Jacqueline du Pré rose performs best in temperatures between 55°F to 75°F. It's hardy and can survive winter temperatures down to about 20°F but requires protection if the temperature falls below this mark. During the summer, the rose can tolerate temperatures up to 90°F but may require additional watering to cope with the heat.
Prune the Jacqueline du Pré rose to maintain shape, remove dead or diseased wood, and encourage vigorous growth. The best time for major pruning is in early spring, just as the buds begin to swell. Remove any canes that are thinner than a pencil, and cut back remaining canes by about one-third to one-half their length. Light pruning and deadheading can be done throughout the blooming season to promote continuous flowering.
Jacqueline du Pré Rose thrives in well-draining loamy soil with a pH range of 5.5 to 7.0. An ideal mix includes two parts loam to one part peat moss and one part aged compost to provide ample nutrients and drainage.
Jacqueline du Pré Roses, being garden plants, don't require repotting. They should be planted in a permanent outdoor location where they can grow without the need for repotting.
- Humidity & Misting
Jacqueline du Pré Roses prefer outdoor conditions with average humidity. They do not require specific humidity levels but should be planted where there is good air circulation to avoid issues with high humidity, like fungal diseases.

- Life cycle
The Jacqueline du Pré rose starts its life as a dormant bare-root plant or potted nursery specimen and is best planted in early spring or late fall. Upon planting, it enters a growth phase where roots establish and shoots emerge, during which adequate water and care will encourage healthy development. As temperatures warm, the rose bush produces lush, green foliage and eventually buds, which bloom into its characteristic creamy white flowers with a pink blush in late spring to summer. After the flowering period, if the faded blooms are not deadheaded, it can set hips that contain seeds, leading to a potential seedling stage if conditions allow. Throughout the growing season, this repeat-flowering rose may bloom several times, provided it receives proper maintenance like pruning and feeding. Come winter, the rose bush enters dormancy, during which it rests and conserves energy for the next cycle of growth in the following spring.
Propogation: The Rosa Jacqueline du Pré, commonly known as Jacqueline du Pré rose, is best propagated by semi-hardwood cuttings. This method involves taking cuttings from the rose bush during the late summer or early fall. To do this, a grower would select healthy, pencil-width stems that have recently bloomed and cut them into lengths of about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm). The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end is often dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root development. The prepared cutting is then planted in a well-draining soil mix, kept moist, and covered with a plastic bag or placed in a propagator to maintain humidity. Roots usually develop within several weeks, after which the new plant can be gradually acclimated to less humid conditions before being planted out in the garden.
