Requirements to the soil

Roses are not so picky to the composition of the soil, as some gardeners. The only exception is heavy clay and light sandy loam soil. Also, roses do not like stagnation, a place for landing should not be there, where groundwater is close to the surface of the earth.

The boarding process

Pit digging of such width and depth, to the roots of plants was spacious: two feet on both parameters will be enough, if the soil is fertile. Clay soil can be made deeper 10 – 20 cm with the same width of the pit. In the nutrient mix should include compost or humus, soil and rotted manure. Fertilizer sprinkled soil layer: they should not be in contact with the roots directly.

Before planting in a hole, pour water, it should be absorbed. If the rhizome of the plant closed, it does not need to release from the soil. If the free root – pruned one-third of the total length and soaked in a growth stimulator or with plain water for two hours.

Shoots are cut:

  • up to two to three buds on each shoot for hybrid tea and the polyanthus roses;
  • to three or four buds to floribunda roses;
  • shorten shoots to a green roses to 10 – 15 cm;
  • to update sections of the roots of the ground cover roses.

The seedlings should be covered with earth so, to the site of inoculation was under the ground at a depth of 5 cm. From the place of penetration of the wax is removed. The ground after planting, tamped and watered again. This is achieved by close contact of the soil and plants, removes air pockets. Seedling Spud on 10 – 15 cm, the resulting "hill" after two weeks clean, during this time, the new plant should settle down.
