Some Thoughts On Planting Roses


Although all types of gardening are my passion in life, I enjoy nothing more than my beautiful rose garden. They are very amazing and I love the colors and extraordinary varieties offered.

However, to get the most out of your rose garden, there are some important guidelines you need to follow, and I want to share them with you.

When spring comes and the ground melts, it’s time to plant your rose garden. Rose has been a valuable aphrodisiac since Bible times and has existed for 3,000 years. However, they still have special secrets and charms, not to mention the fact that they look and smell fantastic.

One of the most important rules for growing roses is to plant a rose grove in an area that receives sunlight about 4 to 6 hours a day. It is also advisable not to plant too many trees or other plants around the rose bush, because many of them mix with roses or strangle their growth. When replacing old rose groves, about 1½ cubic feet of old soil must be removed and fresh soil added to replace it. When positioning your rose in a garden or in a landscape, be sure to take into account the nature of the growth in question.

For example, place climbers and crushers along fences, pergolas or next to arches or pergolas. This location offers them unlimited growth and significantly increases the potential of some great-looking flowers.

Roses also look beautiful on a stretch of island with perennials, and mini roses are ideal as a limiting plant for higher varieties. If you plant them one by one, bush roses can be very good plant specimens, or they can be grouped together into flowering hedges. You can also use it to disguise the unnatural parts of your garden.

Dig a hole big enough for the root mass and loosen the bottom of the hole. I recommend adding bone meal, which is a slow source of phosphorus. This results in healthy root growth on rose plants.

Then the plant must be placed very carefully in the hole and the hole is filled with soil again to ensure that the roots are well closed. Water the rose plant well and allow it to absorb the water before applying the final ground cover. When this is done, water the plants a little more and form a pile of soil about 6 inches high. The dome prevents the stem from drying out until the plants take root. Clean the excess soil gradually when the leaves open.

You have to be extra careful with the depth of planting, which is very different depending on the climate in which you live.

If you live in a colder area, plant a little deeper and consult with other people who plant roses in your area. If you buy a rose pot, you should plant it in a pot about 1 inch deeper than their height. The best time to plant roses depends on winter temperatures.

Some Thoughts On Planting Roses

If the temperature in the fall or spring does not fall below -10 ° F, planting is satisfactory. If you live in an area where winter temperatures drop below -10 ° F, planting in spring is preferred. Plants should be planted quietly when buying roots, but containers planted in containers can be planted throughout the growing season.

The distance of rose plants is greatly influenced by temperature. In areas with harsh winters, rose plants do not grow as big as in temperate climates. In this sense, hybrid tea roses must be 1 1/2 by 3 feet apart, but large energetic growers such as hybrid perennials need 3 to 5 feet of space, while climbers need 8 to 10 feet. Room.

If winter temperatures are below 10 degrees Fahrenheit, roses can grow healthy with proper care. Therefore, the gardener must be prepared to endure this cold and possibly humid experience. In cooler regions, roses enjoy the last fertilizing of the season until August 15 or so.

With these tips, you can make sure your roses grow and bloom well throughout the summer.
