Newly acquired rose bushes must be planted correctly so that they can grow well. If you want to change your own garden or even move, then roses can of course also be transplanted.
This may also be necessary if the roses in a rather unsuitable location are more ailing than thriving. Therefore, the key to knowing which place is best suited for the summery green spiky shrubs is to know. After about a year you can also plant your own rose cuttings in their planned location. Then the newly formed roots should survive the transformation undamaged.
Choice of (new) location
Choosing the right location is not always easy. For roses, neither too shady nor too sunny a place is good. To the ground they set the following conditions. This should be loose and not too dry and rich in nutrients. In addition, the plant should not be too windy or completely windless. Because a certain breeze ensures a faster drying of the leaves, so that fungal diseases have less chance of developing.
Preparation of the planting site
Before the roses are planted, the soil should have been prepared accordingly. That means the soil should be loosened up. Loamy and sandy soils are digging deep into the valley. Nutrients, for example in the form of rotten manure or compost, and optionally also some phosphate fertilizer (also called Thomas flour) may also be introduced.
The easiest way is the planting of container goods. It only needs to be placed in the planting hole prepared as described above and to be well set. However, some container roses have their pitfalls. Therefore, rose plants are often offered without bales, so bare root. This product should best be planted in the spring after the frost:
- To do this, take them out of the packaging. Often the roots are in a water-soaked cotton.
- From this, the roots are freed and placed in a bucket of clean not too cold water for a few hours.
- After watering you should cut the roots a bit. About a third of the thicker roots and about half of the fine fiber roots. The aboveground shoots are also shortened to a length of 25 cm.
- The planting hole itself should be deep and wide according to the root size.
- If several roses are planted, a certain planting distance should be kept: with dwarf roses approx. 20 cm, with bush roses approx. 40 cm, with shrub, park or high stem roses around 100 to 150 cm and with climbing roses 130 to 150 cm.
- Pour the roses into the planting holes and fill them with a mixture of garden soil and humus or peat so that no cavities are formed.
- Then start the soil well and water well.
- Finally, the soil around the roses should still be piled up, and so high that only the top tips look out. After about four weeks, the accumulated soil can be removed again.
Because they may be sick because of too much shade, or because they want to make someone happy with a very beautiful specimen, a rose can be transplanted. In order to move a rose, the following must be taken into account: In principle, roses can be transplanted at any time, the fall - if there is no frost - but is the ideal time for the displacement of (old) rose bushes. The umzupflanzende Rosenstock is carefully excavated. The roots should not be hurt if possible.
If the rose then has a longer transport in front of it, the leaves should be cleared to counteract excessive evaporation. For transport, which should be as careful as digging, the bare roots can be wrapped in damp cloths and a plastic wrap. Planting at the new or more suitable location is as described in the section "Planting Roses".
