Rowing roses needs a little patience, sunny places and a good drainage.
1. Choose the breeds of rose.
There are many varieties of roses that can brring your garden to life, but it’s important to choose the one that’s best for your garden.
Hybrid Tea Rose. One of the most beloved rose varieties, this rose has the unique feature of a shrub with only one flower per branch.
Shrub Landscape Rose. This rose variety has subclasses of all sizes and shapes and can be planted in any kind of landscape. This rose grows close to the ground and has the advantage of being disease resistant. Growing this rose requires less effort than other varieties.
Sprawling Rose. This trellis rose can add a rich floral scent to your garden. Sprawling rose has long, curved branches that can be attached to colonnades, fences, or any structure that provides a point of support.
Mini Rose. This rose is the smallest of all varieties, and grows from 0.15m to 0.6m in length. This rose has no branches and it perfect for growing in pots, small flower beds, or other places with limited space.
Tree Rose. This rose is planted by grafting rose branches onto the roots of the tree. Roses look very pretty, but please note that use your hand pruner to make them looked neat, otherwise, they will be messy. Also they will require a little more thought in the winter.
2. Determine the condition of the rose you are growing.
Whether it is a bare root rose or a potted one. This step is very important because bare-root roses and potted roses require different cultivation methods. Both types of roses need to be planted in the soil to develop their roots, but the subsequent cultivation is very different. Here’s what you need to know about bare-root and potted roses:
Bare root roses. When you get bare-root roses you’ll find that bare-root roses don’t have blooming flowers, but that’s not a bad thing. Bare-root roses bloom late, meaning the rose is using its energy to grow roots rather than preparing flowers. You can plant bare-root roses before planting season, as early as six weeks before the spring frost in your area, but no more than two weeks after the frost. Bare-root roses will grow faster than potted roses if you plant them at the right time and in the right way.
Potted roses. The advantage of this rose is that the branches already have blooming flowers, and if you plant roses in plant pots in your garden, its flowers will be more beautiful. This rose is usually sold in volumes of 4 liters or more. You need a little more patience to grow this rose, as pot roses can easily freeze to death during the spring frost period.
3. Choose your planting location.
The planting location you choose will determine the fate of your roses, no matter how beautiful or hardy those rose varieties are. You should find a location that receives at least 5 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day, preferably in the morning. If you live in a windy area, you’ll want to plant your roses close to a fence or wall. Here are some guidelines for choosing where to grow roses:
In hot areas, you need to prepare shade to protect the roses from dying, and in cold areas, you need to prepare a fence or fence to protect the roses from freezing to death.
Your land should have good drainage properties. Before you plant roses, dig a hole in the ground, pour some water into the hole, and see if the ground has drained after a few hours. If the ground is still moist after a few hours, your roses planted here will be prone to root rot. If this is the case, you should consider planting your roses in raised beds.
Make sure your planting soil isn’t too sticky and doesn’t have a lot of grit in it. Add some organic fertilizer to the soil, such as dehydrated cow manure, shredded tree bark, or other materials that help the soil achieve the proper viscosity.
Do not plant your roses near trees or bushes. They will compete for nutrients, water, and light, and none of the plants will grow well. The soil should be properly moist, maintaining a pH between 6.5 and 7.
