- It is also important to choose the right time for transplanting roses. Early spring or autumn is best.
- A bush should be prepared for transplantation. The first thing to do is to cut the shoots. The approximate height of the bush during transplantation can be from 40 to 50 cm.
- The pit is dug out with a reserve in order to lay drainage on its bottom, over which the nutrient earth and compost are poured. All this is desirable to do in advance.
Let the hole stand, not forgetting about watering. The necessary pit is prepared in at least 2-3 weeks. So the earth is rammed, and nutrients saturate the soil.
- Digging roots together with an earthy ball. It must be borne in mind that the roots of the rosebush grow approximately the same diameter as the crown. Therefore, it is worthwhile to take care to damage the roots as little as possible both when extracting them from the ground and when transporting the plant to a new place.
- Watering. It is necessary to moisten the landing site and the plant planted well. Even if you have to transplant roses in the fall.
So you can protect your favorite roses from the scorching sun, pests and improve their care.
There are several ways to transplant, 2 of them are more popular:
And each of them is worthy to use it.
How to transplant roses in the classic way
To transplant roses in this way is best if you could not save the earth com. Then, you should carefully examine the roots, assess the damage, and if the bush is still young enough, then cut off the underdeveloped and damaged. After that, it is necessary to soak the roots in a solution of humate, the root-forming growth stimulant, for 2 hours.
At the bottom of a previously prepared pit there is a hill, along which the roots of a rose will be distributed evenly. At the same time, it is important that the vaccination site is 3-5 cm below the soil level. Water is poured into the pit, then a layer of soil is poured to about half of the depression, and it is well compacted. After that, you will need to water again. Now the pit is already completely buried, after the water has been absorbed. The earth should be well compacted again so that there is no air between the roots.
After landing, you need to make sure that there is a moderate, but constant watering, so the earth does not dry out, but it does not over-humidify.
Wet method of transplanting roses
This method is very simple and convenient. Water is poured into the pit( a bucket, but more is possible), and while it has not yet been absorbed, a humate or a heteroauxin tablet is added. And immediately, in the water is placed the roots of a rose bush along with an earthy clod. Water is added. Now you need to wait until the water is absorbed, gradually dissolving the earth and deepening along with the roots of the plant. Then the pit is buried and well compacted. It would be good to use mulch so that the earth does not dry out.
When it is better to transplant roses
There are advantages in both autumn and winter transplantation. Therefore, when it is possible to transplant roses, it is up to everyone to decide, depending on conditions and possibilities.
For example, if you do this work in the spring, when there is no threat of frost, you can not take care of shelter. The truth is now that the bushes are at risk of being in the scorching sun, and suffer from overdrying of the soil, if it is not possible to water them in time. On the other hand, they quickly grow in favorable conditions, rooted and developed easily. And so that the sun does not burn the rose, it is recommended to cover it with spruce branches for a while. Particularly relevant landing in the spring in cold climates.
But mostly gardeners prefer a rose transplant in the fall. This helps the plant settle down and harden.
The main advantage of planting bushes in the fall, and this from mid-September to the 20th of October, is that roses are less susceptible to diseases during acclimatization.
Since the air temperature is still quite high, rose bushes have time to take root before the onset of frost. When the cold is only beginning to approach, and at night the temperature can drop sharply, this tender plant should be covered.
