Tips On The Right Way To Plant Roses

Aug 21, 2008
The first thing you need to remember when you want to plant roses would be to find the right location where you would plant them. This is very important. You also need to make sure that location has enough direct sunlight of perhaps 4 hours or more. You also need to look into the moist of the soil.

Roses just love moisture but they hate really wet locations and they express this dislike by just giving up on life and die. If the area is really wet, you would need to have a raised bed of soil to plant them, build a rock around to contain the soil or perhaps a tire to give another height of planting depth above that soil profile that you already have.

If you only have a little damp soil, you can add soil to help it a little more dam. But if around 30% of the total volume of your soil is sand, it will have decreased fertility because this is the only way to let the soil hold more water. In other words, you need to raise the bed again to achieve the goal of planting your roses successfully.

On the other hand, if the soil is really dry, you just put manure or compost or better both. But to really deal with this and totally be in control, raising beds will really make a very good solution. If it means only to raise beds before we can plant roses then there is every good reason to do this right? Roses are very delicate and very specifically annoying about their soil requirements. They very much hate any competition in their soil so they hate weeds more than we actually hate them. This is why a raised bed is always the catch.

So how do we actually plant our roses? There is nothing hard yet there is nothing utterly simple either. However we need to know what we are really planting and simple solutions will come with them. If you are planning to plant bare-root roses for example, then plant this during spring and cultivate them until they develop their roots. These are found in almost every garden centers and nurseries.

On the other hand if you plan to plant pot roses that have longer shelf-life and better development of their roots, then perhaps you are already on the right track. During fall season, container roses are the best especially if you are going to use them on landscape then nothing beats these kinds of roses. However, they cost a lot more than the first type of rose I mentioned which is the bare-root kind of rose.

But noteworthy to mention that container roses are the ones that are easier to plant because you just need to plant it whatever soil condition you have on your pot, the same with any other flower or shrub for that matter. On the other hand, bare-root roses tend to be fussy and will require more delicate positioning depending on the exact climate. You would usually need a part of it where the swollen joint is found between the root stock and graft and should be in raised beds. It usually really is dependent on what season or climate you are in. The most important thing in planting roses however is in how you cultivate them and in how you watch them very closely in their process of growth.
