Almost all soil types are suitable for the cultivation of roses. Only they need to be “corrected”: remove excess acidity, alkali, add sand to heavy clay soil, and sandy peat, compost, humus.
Watered roses as needed. In hot weather more often. Evening sprays are useful at this time. Watering alternate with top dressing. Top dressing is important for each plant.

The main pruning is wintering, which includes removing all sick, damaged and old shoots, shortening the remaining primary ones (in this variety of roses, 1/3 of the shoots are left or shorter – it all depends on the growing region).
