The rose is the queen among the flowers. It can be combined with other plants, but is also good only among their peers. Creating a bed of roses is not that complicated, considering a lot from the beginning. There are so many different types of roses. They not only differ in their color, but you can choose between shrub, bed, climbing, noble, high stem, ground cover roses and others. There are also blooming roses once or several times, scented roses, filled or unfilled wild roses and many, many more. In the end the rosary has to give a picture, everything has to fit.
Prerequisite for a successful rosary
- Most important is a suitable location - as sunny as possible, a bit protected (wind and weather) with appropriate plant substrate.
- The floor should be well ventilated and never too wet. Standing wetness does not tolerate roses.
- Stony soil also does not like roses. Since the roots are prevented from spreading.
- The best planting time is from October to the end of November. In this time, bare root roses are available, which are much cheaper.
- Alternatively, one plants in early spring, in March to mid-April, of course, only if the soil is frost-free.
- Important is the planting distance. Roses should not be too narrow, but not too far apart. Important for the distance is that you know how wide the plants are. Edelrosen remain rather narrow, whereby beet and bush roses can make quite wide.
- Do not plant roses where some have been before. In that case the floor has to be replaced.
- The planting hole must be deep enough so that the roots are not squashed.
- Before planting, put bare roses in water for about 24 hours, as completely as possible. Shorten roots a bit!
- Place roses with root ball in water until no more air bubbles rise!
- Fill in the soil and press firmly but carefully! It is ideal if you mixed in about 1/3 compost.
- Water abundantly!
- A mulch cover on the entire bed protects the roots from drying out, prevents the soil from drying out too much and weeds spreading too quickly.
- Roses look best without other plants.
- Lavender as an underplant often looks good if it does not grow too tall. Beware, many rose colors do not match the purple lavender flowers, but there are also white and light pink varieties.
- If the other plants have different fertilization requirements, this is unfavorable for both varieties.
- Due to different height growth of the individual plants, the roses simply do not look as if they only stand among each other.
- Rose roots need space. The roots of other plants can constrict or even crush them.
- The colors of the roses must match. Kunterbunt usually does not work so well, everything in one color is rather boring with the large selection.
- When choosing, pay attention not only to the colors, but to healthy varieties. ADR roses are tested for their health and found to be very good.
- If the bed of roses is near the terrace or a seat, you should definitely use scented roses!
- Rose balls or other accessories fit well in a rosary.
- Grasses that are not too tall and too lush are good companion plants for roses.
- To Climbing roses fit well Clematis. There are great color combinations here, either tone on tone or very contrasty.
- Under Hochstammrosen fit well ground cover roses. These spread over the years enormously and bloom almost uninterrupted.
There are endless possibilities to make a rosary beautiful. Indispensable for the flourishing of the flowers is the right location. Otherwise, the queen of flowers is quite easy to care for. Pay attention to a healthy selection of roses!
