How to plant a rose

The disadvantages of the variety include a tendency to shed and burn out the petals and not too high decorative foliage, which can also be affected by black spotting.

Growing recommendations

Before planting, the root system of the plant should be trimmed and soaked for a day in water with the addition of a rooting stimulator. In a planting hole measuring 50x50 cm, you need to add a mixture of humus, compost and garden soil. When planting, the vaccination site should be buried in the ground by 7-10 cm to prevent the formation of wild scion growth. After planting, the aerial part of the rose bush needs to be spudded: this will improve its rooting.

Growing English roses in a home garden is not too difficult. It is enough to carry out a set of measures aimed at creating the most favorable conditions for the growth and development of decorative culture:

  • as the soil dries up, in the evening, irrigate at the rate of 5-7 liters of water per bush;
  • before mass flowering, apply nitrogen-containing fertilizers, and at the flowering stage, give preference to phosphorus and potassium fertilizers;
  • in the season of prolonged rains, the buds bloom quite hard on their own, so they need outside help;
  • timely remove all faded and wilted flowers to stimulate the formation of new buds;
  • timely remove weak, underdeveloped, old and diseased shoots;
  • to form larger flowers, perform forming pruning, which consists in shortening the stems by 50% of the total length;
  • at least three times per season to carry out preventive treatment of plants with pesticides or folk remedies;
  • to cover the bushes for the winter using the air-dry method.

Use in garden decor

Rose bushes are almost indispensable in the landscape design of garden and garden plots. Marie Rose is not only dense and incredibly beautiful buds, but also sensual aroma exuded during flowering.

Hostas such as Hosta fortuneï, Hosta sieboldiana and Tardiana host are particularly attractive to the pink flower garden. Due to abundant flowering, the variety Marie Rose is used almost everywhere in landscape design.

Florist reviews

According to experienced florists, the Mary Rose variety is perfect for cultivation in northern floriculture and has proven itself when grown in the Yaroslavl, Ivanovo and Kostroma regions. Positive feedback about him is based on the following observations:

  • in regions with unstable weather, Mary Rose bushes are extremely rare;
  • even under adverse soil and climatic conditions and snowy winters, the variety winters well;
  • in the cold summer period and in insufficient light the rose stably gives two powerful waves of flowering.

According to the observations of flower growers, the five-year-old rose bush of Mary Rose, even with inaccuracies in care, remains very neat, but sprawling: the size of its aerial part is 1x1 m. If the cultivation technology is observed, the plant forms a lot of flowers and their size reaches 12 cm in diameter.
