Planting roses is one of the most enjoyable activities in gardening. Gardening roses is way more fun if you do it in your spare time, in the middle of your heavy schedule. Believe it or not, roses give you sense of happiness when you plant and see them grow. By having roses in your back or front yard, you can please the eyes that see them, gives more oxygen, and of course help to fertilize the soil. If you are currently fond of gardening and planting roses, then it will be better for you to also know and acknowledge the tips and tricks to plant, care, and to grow your own roses. The following paragraphs will lead you to some of the most used ways to grow roses perfectly.
Planting Roses Using Stem Technique
Basically, there are three kinds of types of planting roses. They are using stem of roses, grafting, and using seeds. But the easiest and the one with the fastest result is by applying the technique of roses stem. By planting roses with stem of roses, you can apply flowerpot as a media for the stem to grow later as roses. This is easier compared to the other two techniques.
Flowerpot that you used is suggested to be made of regular material that is friendly to soil such as cement or clay. The reason of this usage is because those materials can absorb the mineral, oxygen, and also sun light through their pores. Using plastic flowerpot can ruin the root of roses instead. Plastic does not give a room for oxygen because of their lack of pores. This will not give roots to grow perfectly then rotten, die. Care your roses in details.
Let’s start with cutting the stem of roses. When you begin to choose the stem that you are about to cut, take the stem in the middle of the branch. Do not ever try to take and cut the stem that is still young or being in an edge of the branch. Those parts will not grow perfectly. Make sure to cut the stem off using a sharp knife or scissors. If you use the blunt one, the left part will go unabsorbed by water. Besides, you have to cut in a sloping position. The right position can help growing the roses faster.
Then put the stem to the flowerpot you prepared along with the fertilizer, then you water them all. Put the flowerpot in the non-sun-light area so it will help the young leaf to grow, until some weeks later you put the flowerpot into the sun light area, ready for its time growing the roses.
Growing roses is not as difficult as you have thought before. But it needs a little more extra work hard and time to see them grow. All you need is some right elements to support your rose plantation project. The main elements are fertile soil, fertilizer (organic is the best), and water. The other element needed is some stones to be put underneath the flowerpot so that the water will be absorbed to the ground.
Caring Rose Flowers
If you see the young leaves growing taller and healthier, then it is a time for you to take care of them more often. Give nutritious food such as natural or organic fertilizer. You can ask the florist nearby about the types. You can pour the fertilizer around the area or put it deep underneath the soil, or even add some water to the fertilizer and water it to the plant. Caring rose flowers can be done by watering them twice in the morning and evening, if the sun lights on; but if not, you can do it once in the morning only.
