Take care of the BROTHER CADFAEL rose like this:
- Planting for roses is the most important step in caring for them. Rosa BROTHER CADFAEL prefers sunny areas with well-arranged drainage. It grows on almost all types of soils. The earth must be loose in order to allow enough water and air to pass through to the root system.
- Watering. Roses are watered as necessary – from 10 liters of water per 1 adult bush on average 2 to 3 times a week. In dry times, watering is more frequent. If the English rose BROTHER CADFAEL grows in a container, then watering is usually more frequent. In both cases, it all depends on weather conditions.
- Fertilizing with fertilizers is carried out at least 2 to 3 times during the growing season. It can be both mineral fertilizers and organic. Mineral complexes, which are introduced by spraying, also give roses. For roses growing in pots, top dressing is more frequent, but smaller doses are used.
- Pruning roses depends on the group to which it belongs. Pruning is done twice: in the summer, faded parts are constantly trimmed to stimulate the appearance of new flowers, and in the fall, winter or early spring, pruning is performed to form the plant and prevent it from diseases or pests hiding under the bark of the plant. The potted rose of BROTHER CADFAEL is also pruned.
- Loosening and weeding the soil around the rose bush is necessary for the circulation of air, moisture and nutrients for the root system. To minimize your labor, use mulching. This agricultural technique will help reduce weeds and leave the soil longer moist. This applies to container roses.
- Shelter for the winter is especially necessary if the minus temperatures are very low or in winter, frequent long thaws are characterized by a sharp decrease in minuses. Be sure to cover the English rose BROTHER CADFAEL, growing in pots.
Enjoy your cultivation!
