Planting, transplanting and repotting of roses


Transplanting and repotting are the three basic operations of planting your roses, whether they are grown on the ground or in pots. The technique of planting roses varies depending on the type of roses you are dealing with: if it is bush roses, dig a hole in the ground about 30 cm deep (if it is a vase, set the same depth) add fertile soil and plant the plant, arranging the roots regularly without bending them. Then add the soil compressing the hole, taking care to leave the graft just below the ground, then secure the plant to a support. For sapling roses, instead, place the plants at home. Then fix the plants to strong supports, without tightening too much. The transplanting of a rose must not be done in the case of very wet soil or even ice cream, so first let it dry completely. Once you have the dry soil, work it at a depth of about thirty or forty centimeters, then carry out a first watering in order to keep the root system of the right humidity, after which the planting operation will have to be completed by adding manure on the surface of the ground among the roses. One warning: the ground where a rose had already been planted previously is not suitable for transplanting another. Repotting of roses should be done in the season of vegetative rest, in winter or late autumn. Before carrying out the repotting, prune the hair drastically and check the roots, ie cut them in the terminal part, especially if they turn inside the pot. As for the substrate, remove the old earth and put new one in it, placing pot shards over the hole in the pot to ensure drainage. The dimensions of the vase should be about 2-3 cm larger than the previous one.
