Rose care

Caring for roses is loosening the soil, weeding, feeding, watering, fighting diseases and pests, pruning and shaping a bush.

In order for roses to develop normally and bloom profusely, they need to be fed . Roses respond very gratefully to the timeliness of feeding. The first feeding should be done in the spring, when the buds appear, the second - in the middle of summer, for abundant flowering. At the end of summer, top dressing does not need to be done in order to avoid the appearance of new shoots that will not ripen for wintering.

Today, many feeding complexes have been developed, so choosing the right fertilizer is not difficult. Do not "overfeed" the rose bushes with a large dose of fertilizer, otherwise the plant's reaction will be unpredictable: from the growth of green mass to the cessation of flowering or even development. 

Do not forget to add some rotted compost or manure under the bushes in two or three years in early spring . Roses should be watered abundantly once a week , preferably in the early morning or evening. It is necessary to constantly loosen the soil near the bush so that it does not overcompact around it, since the roots need constant access to oxygen. Roses need to be watered once a week Roses need to be pruned every spring

before the kidneys awaken. Completely remove the weak and diseased, old and dry stems, be sure to remove the shoots that appeared below the place where the grafting was made, otherwise the bush will degenerate into a rose hip.

In practice, various types of pruning are used: weak, when 8 to 12 buds remain on the shoot, moderate - with 4-6 buds, and strong - they cut off most of the shoot, leaving only 2-3 buds. A strong pruning is often required after a poor winter in order to quickly renew the bush. Pruning roses is carried out with a sharp tool to avoid mechanical damage to the bark, the wounds must be covered with garden pitch.
