How to grow roses Rugoza: best tips


I want to share the experience of growing roses with beginner rose.

Askhat Mavkhutdinov, Republic of Bashkortostan

Roses - ideal flowers for a garden of any style. Firstly, they are good in themselves, and secondly, they go well with other colors.

When we first planted roses in our garden, they did not take root. It turned out we did a lot wrong. But as they say, a negative result is also a result. And also experience.

In our climate, roses should be planted in the spring. Buy seedlings with strong healthy roots and at least three healthy shoots. Before planting, dip the bare roots in a clay mash, or at least put them in water overnight. Roots are saturated with moisture, and this will be a good start for growth.

Rose likes a sunny, well-ventilated place. The soil must be drained and fertile. Planting pits are approximately 50x50x50 cm. Mix garden soil with compost and a small amount of fertilizer for roses. If the roots are long, cut them with shears.

Plant a rose so that the budding place goes to the ground by 3-4 cm (one of our first landing mistakes - we left this place above the ground). Pour and pour well. Elevate the shoots, then high (up to 30 cm)

Spud the ground seedling. When new shoots appear, rake the ground from the bush. Shortly before flowering, feed fertilizer with phosphorus, and in August, give roses potash supplements to improve winter hardiness.

Before the start of frosts, remove the remaining leaves on the bushes, shorten the shoots. Then dig a bush and cover with spruce branches.

Solvable problems

My relationship with roses consists of success and defeat.

Raisa Belozerova, Kaluga

I have been growing roses for over 20 years. I adore these flowers because of their graceful aroma, variety of color, and abundant and prolonged flowering. Some gardeners complain that it is difficult to grow roses.

But this is not quite so. You just need to strongly want to read gardening literature more often and take into account the experience of rose water.

My relationship with roses consists of success and defeat. The area of ​​my rosary is 4 × 7 m. It adjoins the garden house on the south side. Light wooden structures with a stretched green grid enclose a corner in which three climbing roses grow.

Between them - clematis bushes that twine around the lash of roses and the grid from bottom to top. Eleven spray roses grow in the center of the rose garden. Recently, I prefer to grow floribunda roses. They are unpretentious, bloom throughout the summer, not individual flowers, and buds.

Do not strive to have on the site a lot of rose bushes. If you want the plants to always look great, plant them away from each other. Do not plant other types of brightly flowering plants towards them, but at the same time ornamental-leaved plants (fern, asparagus, gypsophila, kohii) will only emphasize their beauty.

When sheltering roses for the winter, it is very important not to overdo it: the plants more often die not from freezing, but from drying out.

In spring, do not overtighten with the opening. After this, treat the bushes with Inta-Wird to eliminate pests, including aphids. Then give foliar application, spray young leaves with Epin-Extra.

After a short period of time it is necessary to spray with Zircon. This drug, it seems to me, enhances the energetics of roses: they acquire strength and bright coloring before our eyes. I use WMD (organic-mineral fertilizer) as feed.

And, of course, the growth stimulator HB-101. He brings life-giving power to all my plants, including roses.

I will say right away: home conditions are only suitable for growing dwarf varieties: ordinary roses have a very long root and they cannot grow in ordinary pots.
The place where the pots with roses will stand should be light, well ventilated, sunny. The temperature should not fall below 10 °. In the summer, you can take the plants in pots on the balcony or on the street.
During the growing season (since the beginning of spring), watering should be moderate and regular, without stagnant water. In winter, watering must be reduced. Fertilize flowers every 2-3 weeks until August. Faded flower stalks to remove.
For roses, a soil mixture of 2 parts of greenhouse humus and 2 parts of a mixture of clay and sand mixed with bird droppings powder is considered optimal.

The biggest problem with growing roses is disease. In wet weather in the second half of summer, varieties with delicate foliage especially suffer from powdery mildew. I learned to cope with this scourge.
Soot roses only in a well-ventilated place. I hate not to overfeed the plants with nitrogen fertilizers. As soon as powdery mildew spots appear on the bushes, I cut off the leaves, prune the affected shoots and start spraying with infusions.
nettle, mullein and ash, decoction of horsetail with an interval of 5-7 days.
Nettle infusion is not only a means of protection against powdery mildew, but also a good dressing for roses. Fresh nettle (500-700 g) pour 5 liters of cold water. Insist week, stirring daily. When active fermentation begins, I filter the infusion and dilute with water at a ratio of 1:10. I also use the infusion against aphids, but I take an undiluted three-day. And when it is necessary to get rid of thrips (tiny insects sucking the juice from the plants), I apply nettle extract with a decoction of horsetail (1: 1).
The decoction of the horsetail is effective against both powdery mildew and rust (first on the upper side of the leaves, then on the bottom orange pads appear, which turn black by autumn). Pouring 500 g of dry horsetail 10 liters of cold water, insist day, then boil for 30 minutes. When the decoction is cool. I filter and dilute with water in the ratio 1: 5.
Insist mullein and ash well helps from powdery mildew. B10 l of water I grow 1 kg of fresh cow dung, I add 200 g of wood ash. Insist 7 days, filter through cheesecloth.
Spraying with different infusions and decoctions I try to alternate.
To combat the fungal diseases - powdery mildew, downy mildew (peronosporiozom), black spot (martine), rust - prevention is important, so I begin to process the roses with the appearance of the first leaves with three solutions in 10-14 days, alternating them.
Solution 1 Fitosporin-M breed according to the instructions.
Solution 2, I dilute 1 teaspoon of boric acid in a glass of hot water, 1 teaspoon of copper sulfate - in a glass of warm water, 1/2 tsp of potassium permanganate - in a glass of hot water. Then I pour all the components into a plastic bottle and add water to a volume of 1.5 liters. For processing plants take 1 cup of solution per 10 liters of water for spraying over the leaves or watering from watering can.
Solution 3. I fill in with boiling water 1 pack of baking soda, 1 glass of vegetable oil. 1 piece of laundry soap (rubbed on a grater) and stir until smooth. I bring the volume up to 3 liters with warm water. For processing plants, I dilute 1 cup of solution in 10 liters of water.

Seedlings preparation

In order for the bushes to settle down well, they must be kept in the water. And in order for the roses to grow healthy, it is necessary to check the state of the root system: remove unusable roots and prune weak shoots.

The process and scheme of planting rose seedlings

Pink bushes are best planted in early spring before buds bloom.

Before planting a rose, prepare holes (50 cm in diameter and 45 cm deep) for each seedling. Important!To ensure that the bush does not spread out in breadth due to the root growth, the area where it is cultivated «Rugoza»It is advisable to insulate vertically with rooted iron sheets. If this shrub is planted to create a hedge, it is placed at a distance of 1.5-2 m from each other according to the scheme:

  • high hedge - 60x60 cm or 80x80 cm,
  • medium high - 30x30 cm or 50x50 cm.

Before planting, the seedlings are dipped in a clay mash and placed in a prepared well filled with pre-humus or peat (1 bucket per well).

So that the land near the bush does not dry out after planting, it is poured with 10 lira of water and mulched. At the end of planting the sapling is shortened by 1/3.

Watering, loosening and weeding

In order for the plant to be pleased with its beauty and not hurt, it is necessary to fight weeds and regularly loosen the soil around the bush.

"Rugoza" refers to heat-resistant plants and does not require systematic watering. However, the soil should be well drained and moderately wet, but not flooded.

It is better to water the bushes rarely (once a week), but abundantly (about 15 liters of water per bush).

At the age of 6-7 years, the roots of the plant reach a depth of 2.5 m, which is why “Rugosa” can withstand a short drought well.


The first two years it is not necessary to fertilize the shrubs, and in the third you can add urea (15-20 g per 2 square meters).

After the rose began to bear fruit, once in 3-4 years the soil is fertilized with organic (10-15 kg of humus, mullein or bird droppings) and mineral (50-60 g of superphosphate and 20 g of potassium salt per 1 square meter) fertilizers. Learn how to feed roses.

The bush is trimmed to rejuvenate it. Pruning begin in the third year of the plant.

At the same time, frail branches lying on the ground are removed. The rest of the shoots are pruned to 15-18 cm, leaving 4-5 healthy branches aged 1-2 years.

When the cut shoots grow to 70 cm, pinch their tops, shortening to fifth. This will help develop lateral branches and stimulates fruiting. In subsequent years, it is necessary to regularly remove unproductive four to six-year-old shoots, broken and underdeveloped branches, and already faded tops.

Thanks to this method, the rose will be abundant and constantly bloom.

Important!The number of branches must be controlled. During the period of full fruiting on the bush should be 16-20 young (1-4 years) branches. Then leave only 2-3 young healthy shoots.

Although “Rugoza” belongs to frost-resistant varieties, it is better to cover it with cellophane for the winter and to mulch the soil with sawdust.

Propagation of rose cuttings

Under natural conditions, the wrinkled rose is propagated by seeds. Cultivated species are bred by vegetative methods: disembarking children, dividing a bush and grafting.

Budding carried out in early spring or early autumn. In winter, all the stocks need a quality shelter. After the warm weather is established, the seedlings will break out and prune.

In case reproduction is carried out by cutting, the cuttings cut in autumn are stored until spring in a container with moist sand in a room where the temperature is kept at + 4-5 ° C.

Use in landscape design

And the rose "Rugoza Alba", and all other varieties are used both in monoplants and in small groups.

  • For planting roses, you should choose a moist and fertile soil, but in addition you need to add organic matter and mineral fertilizers, it will be useful to mulch the site.
  • If using this plant you want to create a hedge, seedlings should be placed at a distance of about 60 cm from the fence. The depth of the hole should be about 20 cm.
  • The soil before planting the seedlings must be “fed up”, for which about 10 kg of humus, 40 g of potassium salt and about 10 g of superphosphate must be used for each square meter of land.
  • After planting, water the roses liberally and grumble the soil.

Under the seedlings they dig holes so that the roots can be spread out freely, and the neck should be dug centimeters by 8. Plants are planted from each other at a distance of 1 to 1.5 m.

Attention! Shrubs develop poorly in a draft, so choose a protected area.

The roots and shoots of park roses are formed over 3 years. During this period, it is necessary to loosen the ground, water it, feed it, and prune it. In spring and summer, the need for water increases, because plants consume a lot of energy for development and flowering. In early September, watering is stopped.

Young bush rose park

A very important point is circumcision. They spend it 2 years after planting in April, and before that they only remove damaged branches.

Shoots of some species should be shortened in half, leaving approximately 6 buds. By pruning you can rejuvenate the bush.

To do this, the shoots are cut off near the ground, then the young stems will begin to grow actively.

Council Since the park roses have very sharp thorns, when processing them, use a canvas apron and thick gloves.

Fertilizer and fertilizer for better development

Under the bushes make fertilizer with a high content of potassium, phosphorus and calcium. The second feeding is in September. Under the bushes pour a bucket of water with potassium monophosphate dissolved in it (16 g) and superphosphate (15 g).

The last dressing is done in October, while adding organic matter in the form of rotted compost.

Roses need to be fed with special fertilizers.

How to multiply park roses

  2. Overgrown, for which offspring at the age of 1 year is separated from the main bush in the spring, and then, having shortened the stems by a third, they are transplanted.
  3. Division overgrown bushes in early spring or autumn. Do this with the use of a secateur. Each delenka should have roots and at least 1 stem. The separated part is planted in compliance with the usual landing rules.
  4. Lignified or green cuttings. The first is harvested in the fall, buried in the sand, and planted in the spring. The second - at the beginning of flowering.

What is sick park roses. Pests

Varieties of re-flowering white park roses

The term "park roses" is used in relation to domestic rose hips. Most often, these are wild rose hybrids wrinkled (Rosarugosa), although the group of park roses includes varieties bred from other natural species - prickly rose, white rose, etc.

Like other varieties of garden roses, park can be single or re-flowering. The properties of remontance have mainly rugosa hybrids, since this species blooms again in nature. Interesting varieties of white park roses are collected in the table:

Rugoza hybrids have thorny shoots, which makes it difficult to care for them. However, the foliage of these park roses is bright, well shading white flowers, so these plants look decorative and are well suited for creating flowering hedges, for gardening slopes.

Tip # 1. The leaves of rugosa hybrids have a characteristic wrinkling, but it does not spoil the external impression of the plant. In addition, the leaves of these varieties are able to maintain a bright green color until late autumn, which makes the bushes a worthy element of landscape design.

Varieties of single-blooming white park roses

The varieties of the Grottendorst group, to which the White Grootendorst rose, is otherwise referred to as "carnation roses."

Not for every roseberry repairing flowering is a crucial point. This is especially true for owners of plots located in cold climatic zones, where a short summer does not even allow re-flowering varieties to enter the second wave of flowering. For such flower growers the more important advantages are the following:

  • increased winter hardiness
  • increased resistance to fungal diseases,
  • good resistance of flowers to rain.

In this situation, it makes sense to pay attention to these varieties of white park roses:

  • Alba Suaveolens. Where, when and by whom this rose was bred has not been established, but it has been known since the Middle Ages. Some researchers suggest that it is Alba Suaveolens that is the most famous white rose of York, which is depicted on the coat of arms of the dynasty. This is a powerful plant that can grow up to 2 meters and cover an area of ​​up to 3 m2. The flowers are large (7 cm), pure white, medium-sized, with a strong, expressive aroma. Abundant flowering, early, in the hands of 5-10 pieces. Resistance to rain is good, excellent to fungal infections. The variety is recommended for USDA zone III.
  • Double Scotch White. Also a very old Scottish hybrid of rose thorn, known for over two hundred years. Vigorous shrub, small flowers (up to 5 cm), semi-double with a great aroma. The variety is interesting not only during flowering, but also during the fruiting period, since it is black-fruited. Drought-resistant, extremely frost-resistant (USDA zone II), not demanding on soils. Resistance to rain and fungal infections is very high.

Having got these white park roses, you only have to worry about limiting their growth. High viability makes them quite aggressive "invaders" of the territory. Therefore, to plant such roses is better in places where this feature would be appropriate.

Tip # 2. The fruits of many park roses are large, fleshy and very useful. According to the content of vitamin C, they are not inferior to the fruits of wild rose hips, so park roses can be used not only for decorative purposes.

Reviews rose about white park roses

Rose Double Scotch White quickly masters the territory and can be used to strengthen moving soils.

“Schneekoppe grows under extreme conditions. The soil is heavy, clayey, it does not warm well, the sun happens on this site only after lunch. But the rose suffers and pleases with flowering. It blooms in June, the first wave is very abundant. Then the whole summer gives out flowers, but not so frequent. Each flower lasts about 5 days. The bush grows better in width, in height I have grown to only 70 cm. For the winter I just roll up. It hibernates well, only undisturbed shoots freeze slightly. It does not suffer from anything, but insects need to be treated - pests like rugozy. Otherwise, the rose is practically maintenance-free ”(Olga, Moscow region).

“I know the Rose Double Scotch from my childhood - a huge bush was growing near the house. The aroma is stunning, the bush at the beginning of summer stood like a bride. Now I want to dissolve in my area. I got a thin root scion last fall, planted and tucked. I survived the winter perfectly, over the summer it grew well. I hope for flowering next year ”(Tatiana, St. Petersburg).

“Rosa Martin Frobisher is very prickly! Special

White park roses may have a slight “blush”, like the Martin Frobisher variety.

spiny basal shoots, on the second order there are almost no thorns. It blooms beautifully, in 10 pieces in the inflorescence, but the old flowers turn brown, cover the young buds and spoil the whole look. We have to constantly cut them ”(Galina, Nizhny Novgorod).

Expert advice on the use of park roses

The barbed hedge of park roses is impassable not only for humans, but also for some animals.

Park roses provide many opportunities for use in the garden. For example, landscape designer Valery Ilyin, a regular contributor to the magazine Home and Garden, recommends the following:

“First of all, hips are the best material for creating impassable living scenes. And you can quite well predict the capabilities of a particular variety, knowing the characteristic features of a natural species. For example, from varieties of white roses (R. alba), known in culture from the XVI century, you can get with time an impassable barbed hedge more than 2.5 m in height, gradually growing in width. Bushes do not get sick, they are not affected by pests, but old plantings need regulatory pruning. ”

Thus, a strong spike shoots of park roses from lack can turn into dignity.
