Transplanted Roses Of Sharon: A Guide For Beginners
In the past few years there have been many stories about transplants of roses. These stories usually involve some sort of disaster or tragedy, such as a large number of plants dying due to lack of water, sunlight or soil conditions. There are several reasons why these transplants fail; one reason being poor care and watering. Another reason is that the plants don’t get enough light. Some people believe that transplants are not necessary if they use containers, but I disagree with this opinion.
If you want to start growing roses, then you need to learn how to transplant them properly.
What Is A Transplant And Why Should You Care?
A transplant is when a new plant (or part of it) is removed from its original location and placed somewhere else in your garden. Usually, the new place will be in a pot. This is done because the plant needs to grow elsewhere so that it can produce flowers and fruit. The idea behind a transplant is to give the plant something different to do while it grows and thus make it healthier. Also, sometimes you may want to remove a single branch from your rose bush for example, or even all of them if you’re having trouble with pests or diseases.
How Do You Transplant Roses?
Transplant roses during the early spring months or the fall. It is always best to do this outside because the process can be very messy. If you are using a plastic container, then it will be easier to move around as you will not need to dig a hole in the soil for it.
First, remove dead canes from the plant and cut them down to about 5 inches in height. Next, remove all the soil around the plant that you want to transplant. Be sure not to damage any of the roots. Take out as much soil as possible, but be careful not to break any of the roots. After you have removed all the soil, place the rose (or roses) upside down in a bucket or a container for a few days to allow the roots to re-orient themselves inwards.
While it is in this bucket, water it with a bit of water to keep the soil moist, but not soaked.
