If you do not need a blooming result right away and enjoy planting yourself, you can easily grow roses yourself through plywoods at no extra cost. Really, it does not need much.
Pile propagation, how does it work?
A plywood is a piece of a year-old, woody branch. This type of propagation is approached in late autumn, with cool temperatures and moist soil, and is particularly well suited for shrub roses, ground cover and small shrub roses and climbing roses. Other shrubs such as flowering shrubs can be relatively easily multiply.
Strong and straight, one-year, woody branches are ideal for this method. It is ideal if the distance between the successive leaf buds is as small as possible. The cut material is then freed from leaves and cut into about 15 to 30 centimeters long Steckhölzer, depending on the number of leaf buds (eyes). There should be at least two, ideally five eyes. It is important that there is an eye at the lower end of the plywood, from which the roots drive out, and at the upper end, one from which a new shoot can grow.
Tip: If you cut the lower part diagonally and the upper straight, you can better see where the top and bottom of the stake is.
The ready-cut sticks are then best put into the bed. To prepare the bed, dig the planting surface with a spade and loosen the soil. Then put some potting soil and sand on the spot and work well with a garden claw into the ground. Now stick the wood as straight as possible and so deep into the ground, that only the uppermost eye is visible. Cover the area with needle stick, a fleece tunnel or other cold-proofing material. Depending on the growth performance, the sticks can be transplanted to their final place after about one year. They are fertilized only from the following spring.
Note: The multiplication by Steckhölzer can also be tasted with Edel- and Beetrosen. Due to the lack of growth or root force of these roses, the success is not always given.
