Growing a flower, how to plant in open ground
For any plant, it is important that it is planted correctly. If the rules of planting are not violated, then the rose will actively grow, develop and bloom profusely.

What time is the landing
They plant roses of this variety in the springtime from April 20 to May 30. In autumn, a favorable time for landing is from September 10 to October 20.
It is recommended to plant a rose on the sunny side of the plot. Culture loves warmth and sun, therefore, they are not placed in the lowlands. In such places, moisture stagnation often occurs, which adversely affects the growth and development of the bush. The plant should be protected from drafts.
How to prepare the soil and flower for planting
Before planting a rose, you should properly prepare the soil. It should be loose and fertile. Recommended soil is slightly acidic so that the rose is well taken root. Before planting, the site is dug up, cleaned of weeds.
Important! For planting, you need to use seedlings with 2-3 ripened shoots with green and intact bark. The seedling should have a well-developed root system, the diameter of the root neck of not more than 8 mm. Before planting, the roots of the seedlings are dipped in cold water for 24 hours. Damaged and dry parts of the roots and shoots are pruned. Healthy shoots are shortened, and the roots are cut to a length of 30 cm.
Landing procedure step by step
When the soil and seedlings are prepared, you can begin to plant. In the selected place, holes are made, 60 cm deep. Crushed stone is poured into the bottom, then organic fertilizer. At the end, the hole is covered with a substrate and a seedling is planted, the roots are straightened beforehand. The kidneys should be 3 cm below the ground. The distance between the holes must be maintained. So that weeds do not germinate, the soil surface is mulched with humus or sawdust. The final stage is abundant watering of the plant.
Any plant loves when it is looked after. With proper care, the rose will grow and develop. Watering, top dressing and pruning the bush occupy important places in the care of the crop.
Watering rules and humidity
