Take care of the rose THE LADY’S BLUSH like this:
- Planting roses is the most important step in caring for them. Plants prefer sunny areas with good drainage. They grow on almost all types of soil. The soil must be loose in order to allow sufficient water and air to pass to the root system.
- Watering. Roses are watered as needed – from 10 liters of water per 1 adult bush of the English rose THE LADY’S BLUSH on average 2 – 3 times a week. In dry times, watering is increased. If the plant grows in a container, then watering is usually more frequent. In both cases, it all depends on the weather conditions.
- Fertilizing is carried out at least 2 – 3 times during the growing season. It can be both mineral fertilizers and organic. Roses are also given mineral complexes that are introduced by spraying. For roses growing in pots, feeding is increased, but the doses are smaller.
- Pruning roses depends on the group to which they belong. Pruning is done twice: in the summer, faded parts are constantly cut off to stimulate the appearance of new flowers, and in the fall, winter or early spring, pruning is carried out to form the plant and prevent diseases or pests hiding under the bark of the plant. Potted roses are also pruned.
- Loosening and weeding the soil around the rose bush THE LADY’S BLUSH is needed to circulate air, moisture and nutrients for the root system. To minimize your labor costs, use mulching. This farming technique will help reduce weeds and keep the soil moist longer. This also applies to container roses.
- Shelter for the winter is especially needed if the subzero temperatures are very low or the winter is characterized by frequent long thaws, which are suddenly replaced by minus. Roses growing in pots must be covered.
Enjoy your growing!
