Roses - elegant and refined plants - often decorate flower gardens of personal plots. To get a full-fledged and abundantly flowering plant, you should correctly and timely plant a rose on a wild rose or other frost-resistant rootstock.
Rosehip is a very worthy stock for a rose and often acts in this role. It has a strong and well-developed root system, and also has good resistance to damage by pests and diseases. A rose correctly grafted to a dog rose has sufficient winter hardiness.
As a rule, stock production is carried out in the autumn period:
When planting a stock for a permanent place, it is necessary to deepen not only the root neck, but also the beginning of the stem. Planting should be carried out in the area allocated for the flower garden.
You can grow stock material from rosehip seeds, but this method is more time-consuming and long.
It should be remembered that climbing and semi-climbing varieties of roses need to be planted on a high stalk. For the inoculation of hybrid tea, polyanthus and rose floribunda roses, middle legs are best suited. Weak rose varieties should be inoculated on low stems.
Amateur gardeners know several options for grafting roses on rose hips. Most often, budding or vaccination with a kidney is carried out, which is best done in the summer, approximately in July, but if necessary, it can be done in the spring. Even novice flower growers can plant a plant in this way, you just need to be guided by the following step-by-step instruction:
Sowing is considered successful if a green swollen kidney is formed on the site of fusion of the scion and stock.
If it is not possible to carry out a T-shaped vaccination, the method of grafting a rose on a stock from a rosehip to a butt is applied. The procedure is quite simple and quite successfully carried out even by beginner amateur gardeners:
After three weeks, a kidney that has taken root will turn green. As soon as shoots appear on the plant, the top must be nipped to form a lush and plentifully flowering pink bush. Further development of the culture will depend on the quality of care at all stages of the growing season of the ornamental plant.
Proper agricultural techniques for growing rose bushes is a guarantee of a long and beautiful flowering of a decorative plant. Throughout the growing season, roses need careful care, which includes spring pruning, bush formation, loosening of soil around the plant, watering and feeding, destruction of all weeds, mulching of the soil, protection from diseases and pests, as well as Winter preparation and shelter:
It is very important to remember that on grafted roses, it is necessary to timely remove all wild rose hips of the dog rose to the base, which is formed in a particularly large amount in the first year after vaccination.
