THE PLANTING OF ROSES
Roses can be planted in pots, as long as they are well rooted, almost all times of the year, except for moments of cold or intense heat, while bare root plants can be planted in periods of vegetative rest, which begin after the first ones. frosts and continue until February-March depending on the latitudes. Avoiding times when the ground is frozen, too wet or covered with snow.
HOW TO BURIAL ROSES IN A VASE
For the pot , dig a hole just larger than the size of the container and mix the soil you removed with some universal potting soil, place the rose in the hole without unraveling the earthen bread or ruining the roots , adding some soft soil on the top. bottom.
Make sure that the graft point is at ground level, complete the implant and compress moderately so that there are no gaps between the walls of the hole and the earthen bread. Water abundantly
HOW TO BURN BARE ROOT ROSES
If the rose has a bare root , dig a large hole, about 40 cm x 40, depending on the size of the plant and the length of the roots, shorten the thinner roots a little if they appear too long, thread-like or damaged. The largest should already have been cleaned and cut to the right size by the manufacturer, at most renew the cut in the apex if there are molds or damaged parts. For the green part, the plant can be reduced to 15-20 cm.
Then place some of the soil you have removed on the hole and mix it half with universal soil. Form a small pile on the bottom where you can arrange the plant with the roots well extended downwards. Fill the hole with the remaining part of the soil, always mixed with Ithe soil. Press and pound with your foot so that all the substrate is well filled and adheres to the roots.
Before finishing and reaching the grafting point, water abundantly , then add soil or the same soil as the garden, until the rose is covered for more than half, this allows to avoid desiccation and excessive transpiration in periods of frost and wind.
The bearded irises are easy to cultivate and given their great adaptability require very little care and can be planted in the most disparate places and soils, taking care in any case not to plant them in too shady positions or too much at the base of shrubs.
In soils with water stagnation, the portion intended for the plant can be raised even by 20-30cm.
Usually, irises can grow too without fertilizers in land that is not very exploited or that has never hosted other irises before; in the rest of the cases two fertilizations with complex fertilizers with low nitrogen content are sufficient, the first to be carried out in the summer rest period (July-August), the second (optional) a good month before flowering.
However, fertilization is necessary in places where irises have been grown for more than a couple of years, to allow the plant to continue to develop and bloom satisfactorily.
In clayey soils the plants can survive the summer even without water, in the rest of the cases do not be careful to water the plants too much: make sure that the plants are not competing with weeds or that they are planted too deep.
