    There is assorted good advice on the David Austin rose site.
    Which rose is it?
  • hi it only has a label with a basic care instruction on it..eg water once daily it has no name which is a shame.

    That's unusual ... do we even know if it's a bush or a climber?

    Watering daily seems a bit frequent to me. 

    It's very early for it to be flowering, especially when we've had such a late spring.  Where did you get it from?

    It looks as if its name is 'Grand Select' ... https://www.bakker.com/en-gb/p/large-flowered-spray-rose-grand-select-M52128 

    There's information on that site about planting it out into the garden or into a large container, and how to care for it.

    That's what I thought too to start with, but I put it all into Google and came up with that website ... enjoy your rose ... it's a gorgeous colour  :)

    It looks like a shrub rose and Select is the company.
    It's worth remembering what it is, as ramblers, climbers and shrub roses need treating a bit differently (pruning).

    Good luck with it.
