Terms and rules for planting climbing roses

Belarus has a rather mild climate and therefore you can plant roses both in spring and autumn. The main thing is to plant them correctly and provide proper care.

  • Upon receipt of the seedlings, carefully unfold them, shake off the transport soil and soak the roots of the seedlings for 6-8 hours in any biostimulant (Kornevin, Epin, Heteroauxin).
  • Carefully inspect the soaked roots — cut the soaked and damaged ones.
  • Shorten the stems to 3-5 buds, leaving shoots 10-15 centimeters long.
  • Plant the seedlings in the prepared hole. Make sure that the vaccination site is deepened by 5-7 centimeters.
  • Be sure to water the plants after planting.
  • The first year, rose bushes will build up the root system, the aerial part will be poorly developed. From the second year, the bushes will begin to grow actively and, with proper care, will show a special decorative effect.

    How to prune a climbing rose

    Pruning climbing roses is sanitary and formative.

  • Sanitary pruning is carried out in early spring after the plant has woken up.
  • Formative pruning is carried out in order to give the desired shape.
  • Trimming a climbing rose to the same size will ensure a friendly, lush bloom, but it will not last long.

    For longer flowering, use a combined pruning method. Shorten thick branches very slightly, cut thin shoots lower. This method can make flowering continuous.

    The right garter is the key to a beautiful bush

    After pruning, the bush begins to grow new shoots. In order to give the climbing rose the correct shape, the shoots must be properly tied up.

    If, when tying, you direct the branches only upwards, then flowering on the shoots will only be at the top. Try to tie branches at an angle. There are several ways to tie

  • The fan-shaped garter requires the placement of only the central branches. Lateral shoots remain free to grow to the sides.
  • When linking the main trunks to a horizontal position, the growth of new shoots forms a fluffy, flowering cloud around the bush.
  • To create a flowering column or arch, direct the main shoots in a spiral.
  • Watering rules

    Curly roses need regular watering. Excess moisture and excessive dryness are equally detrimental to the plant. Cold water should not be used for irrigation, the plant may get sick. The best option is to water once a week. One bush should take about 10 liters of warm water. 3 days after watering, it is recommended to loosen the soil around the bush. Mulching will help you retain moisture and protect the root system from overheating.

    Climbing rose fertilization scheme

    Without timely top dressing, the rose will not be able to show its decorative beauty.

  • The first feeding is carried out after the spring sanitary pruning. Apply 1⁄4 buckets of rotted manure and 20 gr. ammonium nitrate, under the bush. Loosen and gently mix into the topsoil.
  • The second feeding is carried out 15 days after the first. Prepare nutritional formula. Make an infusion of mullein at the rate of 1 part of manure, dilute with 10 parts of water. Let it brew for 2 days. Under each plant, add 10 gr. potassium salt and ammonium nitrate, 30 gr. superphosphate. Loosen and pour 3 liters of infusion under the plant. The proportion is calculated for 1 square meter.
  • The third top dressing is needed for the plant after the first flowering has passed. Feed with fertilizer as in the previous dressing. Use compost instead of mullein.
  • The fourth top dressing is necessary at the end of the second flowering. Under the plant, add 1⁄2 cups of ash, 2 tbsp. spoons of superphosphate and a teaspoon of potassium salt.
  • Shelter of climbing roses for the winter

    Before you start sheltering climbing roses for the winter, it is worthwhile to carry out a number of preparatory activities.

    Remove all leaves from the branches, cut off weak shoots and old branches. The optimal number of shoots remaining for the winter is 10-12 strong, healthy branches.

    Depending on the climatic conditions of growth, the methods of shelter change.

  • In the southern regions, bushes can be left on supports and covered only with covering material.
  • In the northern regions, the supports must be removed. Collect the branches in a bundle and loosely tie. Cover the soil around the bush with a 5 cm layer of mulch. At the onset of mild frosts, lay a layer of spruce branches on the ground, bend the whips of roses on it and fix it in this position with hooks or wire. Top again with a layer of spruce branches and cover with agrofiber or film. On the sides, you can strengthen with bricks or pegs so that the shelter holds and is not blown away by the wind.
  • You can arrange a frame shelter, it will reliably protect rose bushes in the winter.

    With the help of boxes, build a shelter, put a layer of lutrasil and put polyethylene on top. Be sure to leave an air gap between the bushes and the film about 20 cm.

    Climbing roses require a lot of care and special attention, but the beauty of this plant fully justifies all the difficulties. Lush bushes with delightful flowers will not only decorate your garden, but will also envelop you with a wonderful aroma. Royal plants will give you great pleasure.
