Take care of an IMMORTAL JUNO rose like this:
- Planting for roses is the most important stage of care for them. Rose IMMORTAL JUNO prefers sunny areas with well-arranged drainage. It grows on almost all types of soils. But! 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 IMMORTAL JUNO 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, as a rule, at least 2 to 3 times during the growing season. This rose needs to be fed more often in order to increase its resistance to diseases. It can be both mineral fertilizers and organic. Vitamins are also given to roses, which are administered by spraying. For roses growing in pots, top dressing is more frequent, but smaller doses are used.
- Do cropping twice. In summer, faded parts are constantly cut to stimulate the appearance of new flowers. In autumn, winter or early spring, pruning is done to form the plant and prevent it from diseases or pests hiding under the bark of the plant. The container rose IMMORTAL JUNO 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 agrotechnical 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 there are frequent long thaws, which are replaced by sharp minuses. Be sure to cover the English rose IMMORTAL JUNO, growing in pots.
Enjoy your cultivation!
