Landing rules

These plants love bright daylight, so they should be planted on the eastern side of the site so that the sun's rays warm up the flowers and leaves sufficiently, dry the dew and thus not give chances to the pathogenic bacteria that damage the roses to develop. It is important that the place chosen for planting is not under constant exposure to direct sunlight, as burns may appear on the leaves due to the abundant light and heat. Because closer to the afternoon area with flowers should be covered in a small shade, when the sun goes from the zenith to the decline.

Another rule of planting is to shelter a flower bed from cold northerly and northeastern winds. They, like drafts, oppress the climbing rope Polka.

Site selection and soil character

Best of all, roses grow in areas with good water permeable soils. Of all the types of soil in terms of component composition, climbing roses are best suited for loamy soil. Other types of land, too light (sandy) or heavy (clay), will have to be adapted, carrying out for this a number of actions, including fertilizing with phosphate additives, in order to make them fertile. You can use humus in combination with bone meal. Half a year is the best time to prepare a site for planting a climbing rose. Polka. Reviews gardeners emphasize the need for careful feeding and long-term preparation of the site for planting plants belonging to the family of pink. Sometimes preparations begin 30-60 days before planting, but the soil does not have time to be fed with microelements, because roses sometimes give scanty flowering and non-progressive growth of the bushes.

Planting in the autumn

Saplings of climbing roses with an open root system, which are planned to be planted in the fall, are soaked in water before being placed in the ground. After that, the foliage is removed from the shoots, and the immature and broken shoots are removed by processing the sections with crushed coal. The ground part is cut, leaving about 30 cm of the main stem, the roots are also shortened.

Important! Do not forget to remove from the grafted saplings buds placed below the grafting site, otherwise one of them will grow.

After a preliminary preparation of planting material, at the last stage, the seedlings are disinfected, placing them in a 3% solution of copper sulphate.

Preparing a landing site

Planting holes for climbing roses Polka (the photo is available in the article) is dug out in the size 50 x 50, receding between the adjacent pits not less than 1 meter.

The top fertile layer of earth, removed from each depression, is mixed with 1/2 of a manure bucket. Part of the fertilizer is poured into the wells, abundantly watering them, the other - fertilize already planted plants.

Before planting, the roots of roses are treated with a special mixture, for the preparation of which you will need:

  1. Water - 0.5 l.
  2. "Phosphorobacterin" (tablets) - 3 pcs.
  3. "Heteroauxin" (tablets) - 1 pc.

This solution is mixed with a clay talker, prepared in a volume of 9.5 liters, and the roots of climbing roses Polka are dipped.

Spring planting

Interestingly, the rose bushes planted on the eve of summer are lagging behind, compared to those that survived the winter, by two weeks, because they require more careful care and attention.

When planting in spring, shoots are shortened, leaving 13-21 cm in length, the roots are pruned to 30 cm.

After planting, the roses are often and abundantly watered, spud high and covered with a film on top, creating an artificial greenhouse. Such growing conditions in the first days contribute to a more rapid survival of seedlings. The film is lifted daily, airing young saplings.

Rules for the care of a variety of climbing roses Polka are:

  • regular watering of bushes
  • fertilizer application
  • pruning roses,
  • combat possible pests and emerging diseases,
  • preparing for the winter period

Curly rose by nature - the plant is drought-resistant, but despite this, it still needs watering. It is better to spend it systematically 1 time in 7-10 days with the calculation of 10-20 liters of water per bush.

After 72 hours after watering around the bush, the soil is loosened 4-6 cm deep to provide moisture and oxygen access to the root system.

To reduce the labor intensity while caring for the bushes, the tree trunk circle is mulched with peat and watered. So the soil will have to loosen much less.


Young bushes do not need feeding until August.

For fertilizing use infusion of wood ash. Fertilizing plants, starting from the second year of life, organic mixtures alternate with mineral complexes. From the third year of life make only organic. You can use for this purpose a solution of 1 liter of manure and 1 tbsp. wood ash in a ratio of 10 liters of water. Sometimes manure is replaced by any other organic fertilizer.

Interestingly, on the supports, located in a horizontal position, the flowers appear over the entire area of ​​the lattice, and on the vertical vaults - only at the top.

How to carry out transplanting climbing roses Polka

Adult bushes are transplanted only if the site is unsuitable for cultivation and the rose needs to be rescued urgently. The procedure is carried out in September or in early October, so that the bush has managed to take root in a new place before the onset of frost. Occasionally, transplantation is carried out in the spring, holding it before the buds of roses awaken.

To remove the bush from the ground, dig it in a circle. Carry out the action, be careful, otherwise damaged roots will not be accepted.

Dug out the plant shake, clearing the roots from the ground. The roots and shoots are pruned, after which the plant is placed in a prepared well.

Rules for pruning rose bushes

  • dig a hole 50 cm deep,
  • fertilize with organic matter
  • pour a large amount of water
  • straightening the root system, lower the seedling into the pit,
  • well compacted, cover with soil so that the root neck is 10 cm below the ground,
  • the soil around the bush is good to tamp and water,
  • branches cut to 20-25 cm.

When planting several bushes, it is necessary to observe the distance between them of 0.5-1 m, because they expand greatly.

To ensure a lush bloom and a healthy look, the roses, like any other plant, need to be looked after.

  1. The plant must be regularly watered and fed (in the first year the young bush does not need additional feeding). In the following years, organic and mineral preparations should be added.
  2. It is important to loosen the ground around to ensure better air flow to the root system and get rid of weeds. With the arrival of autumn, loosening stops.
  3. It is important to cut the flower. In the spring, damaged and dried shoots are removed. Summer pruning aims to get rid of faded and withered buds. In the fall, the stems of roses are shortened, all flowers are cut to prepare it for wintering.

Rose Polka 91 in mild winters can do without shelter, but it is recommended to cover it in case of severe frosts. In areas with harsh winters, the plant requires shelter. Before hiding, pruning is carried out and the support is removed. Then the stems are tied and laid on the ground, previously covered with spruce branches or dry foliage.

The bush grows fast. Numerous thin lateral and rigid erect stems are formed. On the main shoots are large thorns. Climate conditions of a region influence the waviness of polka petals. The higher the temperature, the more waves decorate the flower.

Planting a rose

An important moment of planting roses - good site selection and soil features. Polka grows on the ground with leaking ground water. Loamy soil type is suitable for component composition. Another type of soil may be too heavy - clayey or porous - sandy.

In this case, you have to adapt the land. It should be fertilized, fertilized with phosphate-based additives. You can mix bone meal and humus.

Main regulations Polka landing:

  • Depth and distance from each other pit for planting - 0.5 m. The bottom of the pit generously fertilized with manure or humus.
  • A fragile root system requires careful treatment. Each root neck is immersed in the ground to a depth of 12 cm. This will allow the bush to plant new roots, which will strengthen the immunity of the rose and prevent frost in the cold months.
  • Immediately after planting the flower requires abundant watering. At least a bucket of water on the bush. Hands need to gently crush the soil to completely envelop the roots of the earth. Soil tamping is important when polka comes in the fall when winter begins to freeze.
  • To further provide strong flowering will help trim the top 20 cm bush.
  • When planting seedlings should take into account the average height of polka and dense branching.
  • Flower reproduction occurs with the help of winter or summer cuttings. It is necessary to place them in water beforehand in order to form a developed root system. Gardeners recommend using filtered or boiled water. It is optimal to store cuttings in special boxes or pots, submerging 1.5 cm in the soil.
  • When planting you need to choose the most healthy cuttings with a greater number of internodes.
  • If in the future you plan to plant a bush on a wall or arch, you need to plant it at a distance of up to a meter. This will ensure the free circulation of clean air even in the depths of the bush.

Cultivation and care

It is not enough to plant a rose. For the normal development of the bush requires daily care, with some features:

Before planting the plant in the ground it is necessary to cut all the leaves on the part that will be placed in the ground, and the rest - a little cut. Before planting the stalk must be prepared - to grow roots, for this you can:

  • put the cutting in the pre-boiled and cooled water, and during planting, fertilize the soil with sand and humus,
  • plant the stalk in a separate box with the ground, deepening it by 1-1.5 centimeters.

Plant a climbing variety should be in a well-lit, ventilated area - so the plant will quickly grow and delight you with its flowering. If the plant is planned to be used as a winding around any object, then it is recommended to carry out planting 40-50 centimeters from it.

  • the last time fertilized roses in the fall.

Preparing for the winter

Roses begin to prepare for frost from the last days of August - at this time it is necessary to stop watering the plant, and to replace nitrogen fertilizers with potash fertilizers.

If it is hot and dry, then its petals fall off quickly. To prevent this will help the construction of the shading grid. Faded flowers must be removed.

Climbing Polka often does not bloom due to depleted soil. The flower does not have to be planted in sandy and clayey lands. Growth in the root zone also does not allow the plant to bloom. With the growth of a large number of shoots, the rose turns into a wild, taking a lot of nutrients. Unnecessary shoots should be cut at ground level.

Also the reasons that the Polka rose does not bloom are:

Step-by-step care instructions

Before planting a rose Polka it is necessary to choose the site correctly, taking into account the particular soil. It does not tolerate low-lying areas in which water destroys the roots, so it is best suited for the plains.

This variety grows well in both sunny and shaded places. However, we must bear in mind that only when receiving a sufficient amount of sunlight, the plant will bloom profusely. For her loamy soil type is suitable, which is well permeable to water. Another land needs to be made more fertile by adding:

  • phosphate fertilizers,
  • humus,
  • bone meal.

At the bottom of the pit, prepared for planting climbing rose Polka, it is necessary to pour humus or manure.

The root neck of the plant should be at a depth of 12 cmwhere it puts new roots. At this depth, the flower does not freeze in winter. After planting it must be watered well - no less than 1 bucket per bush. You need to tamp the ground gently so that there are no roots on the surface.

Roses are fed with organic matter or fertilizer, which contain peat. During the growing season, they need to make 4 times, and during flowering do not need to fertilize.

For a climbing rose, Polka needs extra support.. It may be:

  • trunk,
  • old snag
  • wooden metal grill.

Flower growers are advised to place vertical supports near the wall., which then tie shoots, flowers will appear on top of it. If the supports are arranged horizontally, the flowers will appear to look over its entire area.

Adult Climbing Rose Bushes Polka is transplanted only if it needs urgent rescue or the place has become unsuitable for growing it. Works are performed in September - early October. Then the plant will have time to settle down to frost. You can do in the spring, but before the awakening of the kidneys.

Bush carefully digging in a circle. Damage to the roots must not be allowed. Dug, cleaned of soil, pruning them and shoots. After that they put in a hole dug in advance. Rosa Polka should never be flooded, but drought should not be allowed. Under each bush of a transplanted flower it is necessary to pour warm water 3 times a week. It needs to be warm, because the roots are not yet strong, therefore they react badly to cold water.

These works are carried out in the spring and autumn. Before the rose begins to bloom, the frozen shoots that have been frozen and outdated are removed from the bush, and the remaining pruned to a strong external bud. Subsequent pruning work depends on the number of flowering periods per year.

Climbing rose Polka needs preparation for wintering, which consists in stopping:

Prepare the plant for winter need in dry weather.. Scourge roses should be removed in support and cut off the excess. Put a layer of spruce branches or dry leaves on the ground. Scourge tightly tied with a rope and press them to the ground with hooks or arcs. Polka is advised to cover the climbing rose thoroughly only when the temperature drops to + 5 ° С. With earlier concealment, the flower may start to germinate or germinate. Top need to cover the box.

How to multiply?

Climbing rose is propagated by cutting. That it allows you to save all its varietal quality. Cuttings should be chosen carefully, they should have a decent amount of internodes. They must be healthy.

  1. Before they are planted in the ground at the bottom of the cut all the leaves.
  2. Then the roots should grow on it. For this, the cutting is put in advance in boiled and cooled water, and the ground in which it will be planted is fertilized with humus and sand is added there.
  3. This appendix is ​​planted in a separate pot, it is deepened into the ground by 1-1.5 cm. Pot with a climbing rose. Polka should be put in a warm place.
  4. Later, before planting in open ground, it is cut to a height of 20 cm. This will allow the bush to grow more ambitious, and the rose will bloom very richly in the future.

Diseases and pests

  • gray rot
  • bark bark
  • bacterial cancer.

There is no cure for the latter, but if you are serious about prevention, you can significantly reduce the risk of its occurrence. In order to prevent florists advise to plant the plant in open areas where the air circulates beautifully, drying the leaves from moisture.

Many flower growers in order to hide the lower part of the bush, which is not very rich in leaves, low-growth plants are planted next to them.

Trimming features

Formation of a spectacular crown, improvement of decorative properties and uniform flowering will require regular pruning climbing roses. In addition, cutting branches performs a sanitary role.

New shoots can grow stronger and develop normally when old ones are removed. The more professional the gardener uses the pruner, the more buds the bush will give in the future. Special attention is required generative shoots. After all, 90% of flowers are formed on such stems.

Plants that bloom on the shoots of one year, called toLimebers. They are used as decorative arches and hedges, as well as an independent shrub with large branches and bright buds. Intensive pruning in spring and gentle in the autumn months is carried out to stimulate the growth of new flowers.

Constant care for a climbing rose allows the bush to reach 3 m in height. On average, polka blooms twice a season, forming shoots within three years after planting. After 5 years, the bush begins to weaken. In this regard, gardeners recommend removing the main shoots every 4.5 years. If the plant has dozens of new shoots at its base, a few young shoots and 5 previously flowering plants should be left. Do not leave all the shoots. Excessive density interferes with normal development and weaving.

Mature plants require special pruning. loops. Their number should coincide with the number of new shoots at the base, successfully survived the winter. Consider the size and volume of the bush. High polka height requires only long loops. Pruning can not be neglected. Rose will bloom less and gradually turn into an ordinary bush.

Young bush climbing roses do not need additional feeding until mid-August. The basis of fertilizers is wood ash. It is recommended to start feeding with two years of plant life. Option - the alternation of organic mixtures and mineral complexes. After the third year, only organic is applied. Used glass wood ash and manure liter for every 10 liters of water. Manure can be replaced by another mixture of organic fertilizers.

The entire vegetation period of the plant requires a minimum of 5 feedings. Rose is not fertilized during flowering. Stop the feeding should be in the cold season. Recognized as the best mineral fertilizer peat and mixtures containing it.

Terms and rules of landing

This plant is quite unpretentious and perfectly adapts to any soil. However, the rose still has its preferences:

  • she likes bright daylight therefore, if there is an opportunity, it is still better to choose a place for her where she will meet the first rays of the sun - in the east of the site,
  • prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can lead to burns of polka leaves, so it is desirable that the bush in the afternoon be shaded,
  • she doesn't like drafts and cold winds
  • for rose, fruit plants and wild rose hips are undesirable neighbors,
  • it does not tolerate moisture stagnation due to the likelihood of damage to the root system, so when choosing a place for it, it is better to avoid low-lying areas,
  • in spite of its unpretentiousness, it still prefers nutritious soil and good care.

The best months for planting a Polka rose are May or October.

Finding a suitable place for landing, prepare a hole. It is best to do this in advance. For example, if the landing is scheduled for spring, then it is advisable to prepare a hole in the fall. But you can do it a few days before landing. The pit is dug out wide, the depth should be about 0.5 m. If you plan to plant several rose bushes, then the distance between the pits should be at least 0.5 m. A mixture of soil with humus or manure is distributed in the ratio 1: 1, and water well.

Before planting, the roots of the plant should be treated with a growth-stimulating compound. For its preparation, 1 tablet of heteroauxin and 3 tablets of phosphorobacterin dissolve in 0.5 l of water. This solution is poured into a 9.5 l clay talker and mixed thoroughly. It is important to note that the roots of a seedling are dipped into a mash up only to the neck, not higher! This measure is carried out for the purpose of bacterization and stimulate plant growth.

It is very necessary to carefully handle the root system of the seedling so as not to damage the roots. At the bottom of the fossa, the mixture of earth with manure or humus is poured with a tubercle, the roots of the plant are neatly distributed from above, placing the seedling in the pit so that in the end the root neck is 10 cm deep into the ground. This will enable the plant to subsequently grow new roots and thereby strengthen its immunity. It will also protect the root system from frost penetration in winter.

When the pit falls asleep, the ground is periodically tamped down so that the roots of the rose are well covered with earth and there are no voids inside. This measure allows the roots to stay warm and prevents root decay. After planting a climbing rose in the ground, it is poured over with water at the rate of one bucket per sapling.

Autumn growing

When planting roses Polka in the fall, you need a plant seedling before planting in the ground, first soak it in water for a while. The leaves from the shoots are completely cut off. Невызревшие, поврежденные или сломанные стебли удаляют, все остальные побеги укорачивают до 30 см основного стебля. Все срезы растения обрабатывают золой, древесным углем или активированным углем из аптеки. Также подрезают и кончики корней саженца.

Очень важно аккуратно удалить с саженца растения почки, находящиеся ниже уровня прививки. This will prevent the overgrowing of the bush later.

The final stage of preparation of a Polka sapling for planting in the ground will be its disinfection. To do this, the plant is dipped in a solution of copper sulphate with a concentration of 3%.

Landing in spring

Plants planted in the spring, compared with the surviving roses, lag behind them in growth and development by about a couple of weeks and require better care and increased attention.

Before planting, all shoots are greatly shortened, leaving about 15 cm in length, and the roots of the plant are also pruned, leaving no more than 30 cm.

For a quick survival after planting, it is recommended to create an artificial greenhouse for the plant, covering the rose with a film on top. Young seedlings must be ventilated daily, opening the film.

Watering should be frequent and abundant. Moreover, it is important that not only the top layer of soil be wetted to 10 cm. Water should penetrate to the depth of the root tips. This will ensure the successful rooting of the plant.

Plant Care

Young Climbing Rose Saplings with proper landing in the first year of life do not need additional feedings. However, until the plant is strong, it can easily become infected with fungal diseases. If symptoms of the disease appear, the plant should be treated immediately with copper sulphate or other fungicide. Alternatives are biological means mikosan, fitoverm or phytosporin.

In order for the root system of a young bush to receive the maximum amount of nutrients, it is recommended to remove the buds in the first year.

A year after planting the bush and all subsequent years, in order for the “Polka” rose to enjoy abundant flowering, you need to follow the following rules of care:

  • watering should be regular and correct. That is, they water three times a week with warm water at the rate of 1 bucket per bush,
  • You can feed the plant with mineral, vitamin formulations and manure or humus 2–3 times a month, especially during the growing season and flowering, but only until mid-summer. In August, fertilizing stops making, so that the plant has time to prepare for winter. Manure and humus - the best fertilizer for roses,
  • The required air humidity is ensured by spraying with warm water. But this procedure can be performed only early in the morning or in the evening. This will protect the leaves and petals of the plant from sunburn.

Correct pruning

Rose is necessary to cut. This procedure is performed in order to form a shrub and enhance flowering or sanitary purposes. In the spring produce significant pruning, and in the fall - gentle.

When sanitary pruning remove completely old and damaged shoots. Old are three-year shoots. If there are too many young shoots at the base, then either they are all removed or only a few are left. Previously flowering stems should be about 6. It stimulates the appearance of buds. In young shoots that bloom earlier, only its edge is removed, where the buds are not sufficiently developed. In Polka, it is recommended to leave longer shoots, due to its considerable height.

If the pruned roses are neglected, the roses will bloom less and less, the flowers will become smaller, and the bush will become too thick.

Preparing for the winter cold

Although Polka easily tolerates cold and even minor frosts, it is recommended to cover it for the winter period. For wintering bushes are prepared as follows:

  • in late August, watering stops,
  • nitrogen fertilizers replace potash,
  • soil loosening is stopped
  • leaves are removed in autumn
  • before shelter produce protective treatment,
  • when the air temperature drops to -5 degrees Celsius in dry weather, the branches of the plant are removed from the supports, tied in bunches, bent to the ground and covered. Covering material - dry leaves, spruce branches, plastic wrap, burlap or spunbond light shade.
