Roses undoubtedly stand among the most beautiful and cherished flowers, capable of enhancing our balconies and gardens with their diverse colors and touch of elegance. However, to cultivate beautiful and healthy roses, certain considerations need to be taken into account.

Once you’ve chosen one of the hundreds of rose varieties and colors, it’s time to focus on their cultivation. To do so, you must consider various factors.

Roses grown in pots can be planted throughout the year, provided they are not placed in areas prone to frost. If you decide to cultivate them outdoors, the best time of the year is autumn when the soil is still warm, facilitating root formation.

Roses prefer well-ventilated but not too windy locations. It’s recommended not to plant them less than 30 centimeters from walls or structures that can contribute to drying the surrounding air.

The soil should be slightly clayey and not too sandy, allowing it to be enriched with specific nutrients or compost.

To stimulate plant growth and reduce damage caused by frost, covering the soil with leaves or manure at the time of cultivation is suggested.

Before planting roses, soak them in a bucket of water overnight.

Mix the soil well and dig a hole large enough to plant the rose, allowing its roots to grow and spread properly.

Plant the rose at a depth where the graft (the knotty part from which the branches emerge) is about 5 centimeters below the ground.

Water generously after planting the rose.

Choose a compost or fertilizer rich in magnesium and potassium but low in nitrogen. Reduce the amounts of fertilizer after the first few weeks, or the shoots will grow too quickly and won’t withstand winter frosts.

Following these tips will ensure that our balconies or gardens boast beautiful and healthy roses, adding timeless beauty to our outdoor spaces.
