Rose care

Plants in the heart

The people who have plants in their hearts are not only those who engage in gardening as a hobby, spending entire afternoons fixing the garden or looking and looking at their plants to see how to make them feel better both from the point of view of care and both. from the point of view of the position, both with respect to the garden and with respect to air currents and all other atmospheric phenomena. In fact, not everyone can afford a garden, despite having their great passion for plants and gardening, so they still carry plants in their hearts but maybe they do it because they get excited and know how to get excited in seeing the colors of a well-made floral composition. or in the morning they let themselves be put in a good mood by a flower that emanates all its perfume in a particular way.

The roses


The rose is the queen species of the Rosaceae family, which in nature includes something like two thousand different species. Clearly the rose is very famous, but also of it there are many different species, which can differ in many more or less important aspects: number of petals and sepals (even if the number of petals, more than the species, depends on whether the rose is cultivated – larger number – or wild), coloration, flower size, character of the plant climatically speaking, etc. In general, the rose has a shrubby character, i.e. it develops with various small truncated stems, which can be formed from birth to assume the structure of a tree, but their nature is that of a shrub and as such often wants to form single bushes , even if it has a type of leaves that does not allow to visually “fill” the bush. The leaves are few, about half the size of the flower and with serrated edges with an oval shape; their color is dark green, although it varies from species to species. The flowers of the roses are single flowers, but they are sometimes gathered in inflorescences of three or four specimens.

Rose care


Experts state that the rose is not difficult to grow at all; it must be said that it should be well in our temperate climate, being distributed in all the temperate lands of the northern hemisphere. Yet very often the rose does not give the desired results or even dies, but this depends on the fact that it is necessary to precisely identify the species of rose and adapt the treatment according to the species. The fact is that the rose is not delicate in its treatment, but is very subject to the attack of many parasites and pathogens that undermine its existence; in fact the rose cannot be treated like other plants, because it tends to get lost quickly after the attack. There is therefore a need for preventive care, and this is where the rose is difficult to grow, given that preventive care sees our actions more or less wrong and therefore to be corrected, but above all they depend on the climate and on factors that cannot be controlled personally. However, as a first indication, if you want to avoid that our rose undergoes fungal attacks (usually devastating), it is good that during watering we avoid wetting both the leaves and the flowers, but making the water flow gently on the ground at the base until the ground is moistened completely.

Indications of care

The best approach to caring for the rose is to follow the advice of experts in the care of this plant, well aware that mistakes are human and that soon we can both make mistakes and see many good results. Let’s start from the base, that is the ideal soil for our roses: the ideal soil would be composed of four parts of manure and one of peat, prepared in March when the plant will be positioned in October; if the purchase is more “improvised”, we just need to know that we need a draining soil (therefore some of its parts must be coarse-grained, like gravel) and above all manure. Fertilization is to be done in spring and summer with a balanced and balanced fertilizer, that is generic, while every two years the base of the plant must be manured abundantly. By the way, the plants must be at least fifty centimeters away from each other, while in the case of small trees, at least one meter is needed; in the latter case it is also necessary to provide supports for the plant to ensure that they do not interfere with other plants or with watering. It is extraordinary to imagine that both the pear tree, the cherry tree, the peach tree and the almond tree (belonging to the Prunus subfamily) belong to the Rose family; this shows how the same family can differentiate itself, also because the classic rose has fruits that cannot be eaten and in any case rare and small, especially decorative.
