Autumn transplant of climbing roses


An adult plant is usually transplanted if the place for it was not quite well chosen. In the article, we will talk about what you need to pay attention to when choosing a new site for planting a climbing rose, and how to conduct it correctly.

The best time for transplanting roses (especially with powerful, long shoots) is early autumn (September-early October). Then the seedlings have time to take root before winter. However, you can transplant in the spring, immediately after thawing the soil, until the buds on roses begin to grow.

Before planting a climbing rose, rambler must be removed from the support of its shoots (if they were attached to it). Save all young shoots. And at the end of August, pinch the tops from them so that they are lignified, because these roses usually give flowering on last year's shoots. Those shoots that are more than two years old, immediately after flowering, remove.

Klaming is a climbing large-flowered rose with thick, powerful shoots and large double flowers. When transplanting such a rose, all long shoots, for convenience, can be shortened by half or a third. You can read more about planting and caring for climbing roses in the article “Climbing roses: variety selection, planting, grooming“.

How to transplant a rose to another place: when can I transplant

Start of transplant in August or autumn

The bush must be dug carefully, in a circle, while retreating two bayonet shovels from the middle of the bush. Dig deeper to maximize root retention. After you dig them up, shake off the ground, cut off the ragged and shaggy ends of the roots with a pruner. After that, you can safely plant in a new area, in a prepared hole in advance.

During planting, make sure that the roots do not bend up, straighten them. Deepen the place of inoculation or the root neck five centimeters below the soil level. Tamp the ground around the edges and water abundantly. A few days later, the earth will precipitate, so you have to pour more. However, make sure that the plant is not too "settled". If the rose was still deep, then carefully dig the bush with a shovel up, tamp the soil again.

If the ramblers after planting (in the fall) had long shoots formed, then again they do not need to be tied to the support. This can be done in the spring. In the meantime, you can freely connect them all together and with the onset of stable cold weather, bend to the ground, covering for the winter.

Choosing a place for a climbing rose

All roses, including climbing ones, love open sunny places. Some varieties may feel fine in partial shade, but shady places for roses are not suitable. Roses in them do not bloom profusely, form weak bushes with elongated shoots, and often get sick. However, at the same time, plants usually suffer from the sultry midday sun in an open area. In this situation, young leaves can get burned, and the petals of flowers (red, burgundy and raspberry varieties) burn out at the edges and give a bluish tint. So these varieties need to be shaded or planted in a place that the sun visits in the morning. And make sure that the air between the roses can freely circulate.

It is not recommended to plant roses near the walls of buildings in order to prevent runoff of water in them in summer, and in winter - snowfall. There is no need to plant plants next to trees with a powerful and developed root system, otherwise they will take away all the water and nutrients. But the dried tree is an excellent support for climbing roses.

Plots with a close occurrence of groundwater are not suitable for roses, since the root system of adult specimens of these plants is quite powerful and reaches more than one meter in depth.

Soil climbing roses prefer fertile, water- and breathable. When planting in the landing pit, add well-rotted compost or manure. More compost and soddy soil should be added if the soil is sandy, light. Clay soils are not suitable for roses at all.
