Essential tips for successful planting of your Roses :
If you already had roses in the same place, change the earth to a depth of 60 cm.
Choose an airy and sunny (at least 4 hours of sunlight), avoid the proximity of trees or northern exposure.
Make a hole 50 cm deep and make an organic manure (aged manure, or compost 2 years minimum age...)
Put a layer of good soil (10 cm) of vegetable added, if needed 1/3 good potting soil to prevent the roots come in direct contact with the manure.
Roses bare-root : do not leave the air if you do not plant immediately. Leave them in their original packaging in a cool place protected from frost, wind and heat. Beyond 8 days put-in gauge.
The day before planting, soak completely in the water : the roots and branches.
Re-cut the roots before planting.
Place the rose bush and then fill in with soil, packing firmly with the foot to the ground all around the roots.
Rose bushes in clods : They can be stored for several days at the expense "off-gel" before planting. Remove the plastic bag, soak 1 to 2 hours the root ball in a bucket of water and plant the root ball, leaving the film around (biodegradable).
Roses in pots : Plant the rose with its root ball by watering thoroughly at planting.
Watering : Water thoroughly (8 to 10 L per rose) for planting.
When the ground is set, return of the land above the grafting point in order to avoid that the rose never dries out by the wind and from freezing in the winter.
The 1era year regular watering 1 x per week depending on the weather.
SIZE : Do not resize, not the branches when planting fall. For a planting of spring re-cut the branches from the end of march.
Winter Protection : Buttez your rose bushes in November, with the earth in 15 cm of height of branches to protect them from the cold weather.
At the beginning of march, remove the hump. Depending on your region and the type of rose, from late February to early April, remember to resize your rose bushes.
DO NOT PUT MULCH AROUND THE ROSES DURING THE 3 MONTHS AFTER PLANTING.
