It is not possible to establish a number of petals that make up the flowers because this varies according to the species and whether it is cultivated or wild roses. The calyx of roses consists of 5 sepals which, in unfavorable climatic conditions, they become leaf-like. The fruit of the roses consists of an enlarged receptacle and takes the name of “rosehip”, this is considered an excellent ornamental element. Inside it the seeds ripen, they are of a color that varies between yellow and brown and are called “achenes”.

Roses are types of plants that are easy to cultivate, the only special attention must be kept in watering, pruning and above all for attacks by parasites. These plants are particularly prone to attacks by many insects and therefore it is advisable to prevent with the necessary care. The ideal soil for roses is a fertile, calcareous, medium-textured and well-drained soil. It is useful to know that it is a good habit to use organic substances (such as manure) in preparing the soil. These types of plants need abundant watering so as not to cause drought, especially in spring and summer. In autumn and winter, watering must be reduced also because precipitation contributes. The best time of day to water the roses is in the morning in the spring and in the evening in the summer. The best method to irrigate them is to run the water at the base of the plants until the soil is well wet, be careful not to wet the rose flowers because in this way we favor the fungal diseases that affect these plants. To help the seedlings develop, we can make manure every two years and at the same time administer granular fertilizer.

Pruning, planting

There are no precise rules to follow for pruning roses, they vary according to the species, cultivation, type of climate and flowering times. Pruning is carried out when the plant is in a state of vegetative rest through an oblique cut of half a centimeter above the bud. Pruning is done to eliminate dry branches and to reduce the size of the plant. The important thing to do is to disinfect the wound after the cut. There are two types of pruning for these seedlings: long pruning and short pruning. Long pruning is done on vigorous plants while short pruning is done on weaker plants. As for planting, this is done when the plants are dormant and therefore either in October or January / February. Before being planted we must remove the damaged ends of the roots through clean cuts. The roses must be buried at a depth of 3 to 5 centimeters in order to be protected from frosts.
