- It is unacceptable to put a rose in a "swampy area". Where in spring, autumn or after the rain picks up moisture. The root system may rot!
A few words about the watering
Why roses are called capricious? Largely due to the fact that the flower like a lot "to drink", but does not tolerate stagnant water in the roots. Many newcomers to the hot weather pour "Garden Queen" daily or every other day with good intentions. As a result, suffer from the roots.
In the summer it should be watered about once a week 1, but the large volume of water. If there was a heavy rain, miss the water treatments. I pour under every bush for 5-10 liters of water depending on the size of the bush roses. Occasionally, when the temperature exceeds the limit, the sun beats down and the precipitation is not expected, reduces the range of 4-5 days.
Okay, when you can get down to business?
