Rose Care

It is a plant grown outdoors, in general, requires exposure to sunlight, but does not like hot or windy weather.
Must be placed in a ventilated place, where the temperature does not exceed above 25 º C.
In general, can be grown in warm climates, with a temperature range between 15 º C and 25 º C, but his favorite is the Atlantic climate.

In colder climates the roots must be protected from frost, by a good mulch.
It can withstand temperatures below -10 º C, although lower temperatures can ruin the flowers and damage the roots, should not be protected.
To avoid the temperature contrast that occurs in these places when the sun rises over the cold nights, it is appropriate to semi-shade planting, so the sun did not burn after thawing.

If you want to grow it inside, we should avoid being in a place too dry, for it will make frequent watering and spraying to increase the humidity.
It does not support overly warm rooms, hence difficult to successfully live in a heated building or in a room whose temperature rises above 15 º C in winter.

Another problem that presents its cultivation, especially indoors, is the ease with which the petals emerge when handling the plant.
This same problem is present those specimens grown in pots outdoors, hence we should not move the pot.

You have to water regularly, especially in summer. If it is small pots during this season, you should water every day, especially when it comes to miniatures, in small pots, with little moisture retention.
With this type of fish it is convenient to water twice a day, if the rosebush is exposed to sunlight.
With larger pots should be done every two or three days.

In general, we recommend that the pots have good drainage, since, if the water stagnates, will facilitate the emergence of many diseases.
It would have to place the pots, so that excess water does not touch the roots.
When the pot is inside a container if water outlet, we recommend emptying all the water just after watering the plant once it has drained all the water.
Do not want to place the pots on top of dishes.

The larger specimens planted on the ground and once rooted are well able to withstand drought better.
Although, especially in summer, it is inappropriate to subject them to water stress too long.

After planting and growing season or bloom, should be watered frequently, preventing the soil is dry.
Under no circumstances should wet the leaves or flowers during the day, because water droplets act like little magnifying glasses to the sun and can burn.

A good spray after the sun sets is very suitable for these plants that require good humidity.
To retain soil moisture is very appropriate to apply a layer of mulch (mulch) made from shredded bark, straw or manure.
This resource is particularly suited to the climbers to be placed on a south-facing wall.

As we can reproduce the roses

By cuttings:

Cut a branch about 20 cm and keep it moist in a bucket overnight in water where they have added a few drops of growth hormones.
The next day, early morning or late afternoon, take a deep hole with a stick, and insert the cutting into the earth.
Tighten the land and water.
The plant began to take root in the spring.
In summer, if developed suckers should be removed.

Transplantation of the new plant this autumn.
In colder areas should play the roses from cuttings of stems semimaduros.
The procedure is similar to hard wood cuttings, but the planting is done within two pots in spring transplanting outside.

By layering:

It is done in late spring and consists of bending a branch and place it on the floor, after having removed the leaves, holding it so as not to loose.
Cover the stem in contact with the soil with peat and water.
The following year saw off the branch behind the area where there has been rooting and planting that we deem appropriate.

Using pacifiers:

It is also known as plantation division and involves extracting the rooted suckers that occur over the cuttings and plant them directly in the pot or on the ground.

By seed:

It takes place in autumn and is used to reproduce non-hybrid roses from seeds collected from the flowers.
After building up in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 weeks the seedlings were planted in a mixture of peat and compost.
The seeds are covered with sand and protected in boxes.
Germination usually occurs after one year.
Seedlings are transplanted when true leaves have developed.

How to Prune Roses

Prune once a year (January or February).
Pruning plays a dual role:

To shape the plant and avoid possible awkward appearance.
This pruning will take place just before the spring and late autumn.
Another good way to stimulate flowering is to remove the dried flowers.

To stimulate plant growth and prevent possible diseases or because they have dried, either having disease.
Pruning should be carried out over the yolk.
Must be a clean cut with sharp scissors and disinfected.
Should be cut diagonally with respect to stem and parallel to the direction of bud growth.
Pruning is possible at any time if you want to cut off the flowers are withered.
If we plant a bare root rose immediately after performing the appropriate tasks of securing the specimen, fertilizer and irrigation, there should be a pruning of the plant, cutting all the branches so that we stay with a length between 20 and 30 cm .
This will get a renewal and strengthening of the plant.
Requires a well-worked soil to maintain moisture, composiciónácida (pH around 6.5) so it is best planted in deep soil rich in organic matter, a mixture of heather, chestnut and manure well formed but at the same time, not retain water.
Can not bear the warm land, applying fertilizer limescale.
The planting of roses can be done from mid-December to late March or early April, but prior to the planting of the same should be preparing the ground that it may begin in mid-September.
The most important is the realization of the holes and the proper preparation of the compound.
The holes should have a depth between 40 and 50 cm.
The compound must be fertile and possess both a high capacity to retain moisture, but avoid waterlogging.
The best thing is to do a mixture of manure and peat, ensuring that the pH is around 6.5.
If the soil is very acid lime was added.
Otherwise, the alkalinity is reduced by adding manure.
We must prevent the soil is sandy or limestone and in any case that is moist and not water logged.
Generally, the copies must not be planted too close together to encourage the movement of ire among them and sun exposure.
Nor should we leave them too far apart, because the lack of mutual protection can bring too dry.
Planted conditions depend on the types of roses.

Distance between individuals 30-40 cm.
Place site in containers, south-facing wall about 50 feet away from it.
In large containers or the ground.
Requirements fertilized and watered frequently, especially copies of terrace.
Roots shaded and moist.
Provide adequate support monthly payment.
Placing drainage material at the bottom of the container.
Support copy with a tutor.
Do not tighten the bonds too.
Watering any month with liquid fertilizer.
Fertilize once a year, especially in spring with manure when they are planted in the ground.
When planted in pots, the manure is too strong and can burn.
In this case, a subscriber with a specific product is right florist.
In general we always pay after planting and pruning.
