Roses look beautiful in any garden and lawn. Generally,Â people choose the familiar varieties like pink, red and white roses for their gardens. However, one can also introduce the rare varieties of this flower like orange and black roses.
But before starting off with a rose garden, it is crucial to know the basics about creating one. Here are a few directions for growing a beautiful rose garden.
According to garden experts, rose plant is a flexible plant by nature. It might sustain on partly grainy soil type as well as on fertile grounds. However, the right kind of manure and natural nutrition for the plant is a must.
Providing the right amount of water, sunlight, moisture, compost etc. is definitely essential for the budding of beautiful roses.
Also, the PH content of the soil must be focused upon. Generally these are adjustable plants and can take a soil with a PH content of around 6.8. However, one can correct the acidic or alkalinity of the soil as well.
Drainage and spacing
As is a necessity with most plants, drainage forms an important requirement for growing a rose garden as well. One can lift the flower beds slightly higher in case the soil and weather conditions are rather soggy.
Also, one must consult a good gardener to know about proper irrigation methods. These measures assure proper drainage.
Besides this, one must be careful while selecting a location for plantation. Roses cannot grow properly in regions whether there are already flourishing trees and bushes. It is essential to choose an open location for planting.
Otherwise, there is a danger of collision between the root structures of the growing rose plants and other trees. Hence, one has to plan out before planting the seeds.
To start planting, one must first bore a ‘14-18’ inch deep hole in the ground. Make sure there is enough space between the walls of the opening.
Add sufficient amount of manure and mix properly with the soil. Post this, one can start planting a bare-root rose plant in this hole.
As one’s plant starts to grow, one must make sure to control weed growth in the rose gardens. Also, proper and timely pruning is needed to ensure that the plant produces healthy roses.
Abundant sunlight and manure should be provided from time to time. To add more color to the garden, one can plant different types of rose plants side by side; in separate beds.
