HOW TO PLANT ROSES IN GARDEN?
HOW TO PLANT ROSES- Rose gardening is probably easier than you think. Growing and caring for roses is different from or more difficult than the usual way of growing flowers.
Let’s look at how you can successfully plant roses in the garden.
1. Good conditioning:
Roses need good exposure to the sun for six or more
hours in a day. Expect you are growing roses in an extremely hot area, there is
no need for shade. There is no particular choice of soil for roses, but they need
adequate nutrients to bloom and thrive. Hence, rich loamy soil with a slightly acidic PH level is most ideal. It is necessary that the sight is protected from wind, and that the rose bush is not crowded to ensure good airflow between the plant.
2. Preparing the ground and soil:
The planting hole should be as deep and a little wider than the root ball. Save the removed soil and mix with bone meal or an
ideal equivalent to refill the dug hole after planting. You can add some organic manure or compost if the removed soil is of poor quality. Allow the root to take
hold before adding anything else.
3. Preparing and planting the rose:
Preferably with a glove, gently remove the
rose from its temporary pot. To ensure that the roots take to the ground as soon as planted, you should loosen the roots. Hold the plant from its base and slip the plant from the pot. With removed soil mixed bone meal, you make a mound at the center of the hole. Put in the rose's root and ensure that the graft union is just below the ground level.
4. Watering and caring for the newly planted rose:
Soak the newly planted rosewater and apply mulch up to two inches around the root and base. You continue watering the rose every other day until it starts to send out new growth.
