Landing rules

The presence of very delicate light petals in white-flowered rose varieties implies strict observance of the choice of growing place and technology of planting the plant in a permanent place:

  • pink seedlings should not be planted in shady areas where extension of the aerial parts of the plant can be observed, as well as a weakening of growth and development;
  • when growing in shade, often enough, a defeat of the decorative culture by the most common diseases and pests is observed;
  • It is not recommended to plant a rose in areas exposed to northerly and northeasterly winds.

The best solution is to plant rose bushes on the southeast side of the garden. White roses grow well on light and “breathing” loamy soils and chernozems, with good access of water and air to the root system of the plant. It is not recommended to plant a decorative culture on sandstones and sandy loamy soils. A good result is the addition of peat, lime, rotted manure and turf.

White roses: growing

Care Features

Activities for the care of white-flowered varieties of roses do not have significant differences from the technology for growing decorative cultures of other varieties:

  • pink bushes need to be fed regularly, using mature horse manure mixed with soil for this purpose;
  • the use of pig manure and bird droppings should be limited due to the botanical characteristics of the culture;
  • at the stage of bud formation, it is advisable to nourish the plant with calcium nitrate, diluted at the rate of a tablespoon in a bucket of warm water;
  • every two weeks at the stage of active vegetation, it is recommended to feed the plants with mineral fertilizers, as well as herbal infusions with the addition of mullein;
  • it is not advisable to use fertilizers at the stage when the roses bloom;
  • before feeding and immediately after fertilizing, in order to avoid getting burns with a rose, it is necessary to water the plant as abundantly as possible;
  • feeding and watering should be carried out in cloudy weather, or in the evening and morning hours;
  • if it is necessary to increase the vitality of the rose bush, it is recommended to fertilize with Epin, Potassium Humate, Zircon or Ecosil;

A very good result is obtained by mulching the trunks of rose bushes through a layer of humus, hay or peat. In cold and rainy weather, rose bushes are not able to absorb nutrients from the soil, therefore, foliar top dressings are sprayed, which can improve the state of the decorative culture, as well as increase the number and size of flowers.

Rules for combination and use in garden decor

The best compatibility of white roses in the conditions of home gardening and garden landscape is noted with many decorative annuals and perennial crops. Amateur growers are well aware that getting a colorful variety on a personal plot requires observing a certain system when planting.

Varieties must be concentrated with homogeneous compositions consisting of no less than three or four bushes. In this case, the general appearance of the rosary will look more attractive. For example, a German rose of the WhiteBouquet variety is distinguished by very plentiful long-term flowering, double and strong flowers of white or milky color, and is ideal for decorating the front edge of the flower garden.

White-flowered roses with beautifully flowering shrubs that can be planted behind rose bushes or a distance of one and a half meters from the flower garden look very decorative. An excellent addition can be stunted daisies, bluebells, as well as ground cover perennial and annual flowering crops.

Carnations are still a favorite plant for planting roses, in addition, most modern varieties bloom continuously. It is better to use low species, such as AlwoodiiAlpinus, and avoid planting carnations and roses of the same color.

How to plant a rose in spring

Among the rose bushes, Campanulacarpatica can be planted. Violet-blue staining CampanulaGlomerata also creates a beautiful and highly decorative composition with a white rose, and also belongs to the category of shade-tolerant plants. As the most suitable deciduous shrubs, it is recommended to use scoopia, lilac, yellow acacia, euonymus and cotoneaster, as well as snow berry, sea buckthorn, planting tamarix, privet and mock up. White roses with classic-shaped flowers look great against the background of thuja, spruce and juniper.
