Caring for roses after planting and garter.
The complexity of care for young root-genuine card is that in the first two years after planting, you need to carefully hide from freezing "root collar" and the roots of seedlings - by their hilling compost, earth or any loose material (eg, dry leaves). "Root neck" in own-rooted roses, unlike the grafted seedlings, just not expressed and can be anywhere in the shoot (in this case, the conventional concept, and so I enclose it in quotes).
In the first year planted climbing roses do not need fertilizing dressing, as soil nutrients still little used. Only in the end of August rose seedlings fed with a solution of potassium salts to prepare them for winter. Suitable for this purpose fertilizer "Autumn"; and if there is not, then pour the infusion of wood ash.
Formation of own-rooted roses bushes strong tenderloin stopped in early July, so as not to cause the appearance of new shoots in late summer. Sprouts developing at this time, do not have time to sufficiently odrevesnet for winter.
In spring, when with climbing roses finally removed shelter operate priority work: pruning is carried out; purified bushes from last year's crop residues, process them from pests and diseases; dig or loosen the soil, fertilized and spiked fresh soil or rotted compost made.
When the soil is ripe for processing, it dug up or loosen the garden fork, cultivator to a depth of 20-25 cm. Digging with a turnover of formation do if roses were amazed by fungal diseases and pests, overwintering in the upper soil layers. At a safe state landings deep loosening prefer digging at which inevitably damaged the most active roots that the short summer can have a negative impact on the rose.
After digging or loosening topsoil mulch organic fertilizers - humus, humus or compost (at the rate of 3, 7, 12 kg per 1 square meter, respectively). This is necessary to make up for the loss of land, washable at watering and weeding with a removable, and create favorable conditions for the formation of new adventitious roots on the lower parts of the shoots of roses.
Garter climbing roses.
Climbing roses that require garters to stimulate the formation of a large number of flowers, tied up so that their vines were placed as horizontal as possible, or in the form of a spiral (for climbing roses). With a vertical shoots on pletistyh roses produce large quantities of replacement shoots to the detriment of future blooms: lush bushes are formed, but they bloom poorly.
If the tops of the vertical stems climbing roses usually formed only a few flowering side shoots, then the stems formed horizontally, they appear along their entire length, thus creating a much more attractive appearance. Many varieties of climbing roses are used as ground cover plants, tying them horizontally low from the soil.
