A Nursery Full Of Roses

Times have changed but roses have remained as one of the most favored among all known flowers across generations. Roses also get a position of pride in flower nurseries, simply due to the fact that they come in a wide range of colors and variety and make any nursery come alive with their presence. With the right kind of knowledge and application of techniques, you will be able to cultivate the best variety of healthy and colorful roses with ease.

Way To Grow Roses

You can either have potted roses or pick up bare root roses which can be re-planted in your garden easily. Potted rose plants are also more expensive because of the amount of effort that goes into developing a healthy potted plant. Gardeners Alan Titchmarsh and Christopher Freville recommend that root rose plants are easier to take care of as they settle in faster than the potted variety.

When to Plant

The preferable time for planting roses is believed to be from early spring to early fall .Bare root roses are usually planted before the new shoots begin to grow. Ideally they should be planted as soon as they are bought. However, if there is a time lapse in between, the suggested way of keeping them is in a cool, moist and dark place.

Let Them Catch The Sun

A nursery of roses should ideally be located where the plants are able to get enough sun for most part of the day. If the weather in the place tends to lean towards higher temperatures then some shade would be preferred so that the plants are not over exposed to the heat. Shady areas in woodland around Solihull may not contain enough sunlight.

Enough Air To Breathe In

Not many living things thrive in damp, dark places with no fresh air and roses are no exception. In fact if they are not exposed to enough air, they stand a chance of being attacked by fungus which is a natural inhabitant of places which do not enjoy free air circulation.

Place Them Right

Spacing also depends on the variety of the plant and its growth habits. Although traditionally the spacing is supposed to be 24 inches between neighboring plants it is also important to keep your roses as far away as possible from plants which as susceptible to fungal attacks. Adequate spacing that allows free air circulation helps plants to grow better.

Fitting them In

Soaking the roots in a bucket of water an hour before is recommended. The hole which has to be prepared before the rose is planted should be at least fifteen inches deep and eighteen inches wide with a generous helping of organic matter and fertilizer added in. A small mound is made in the center of the hold, the roots are spread over it and the hole is filled up.

Once the plant is fixed right, adequate watering is required along with pruning, weeding and regular conditioning of the soil. This will help your roses to grow strong, healthy and beautiful.
