Sophia is very worried and asks us: "Why do roses wither in the flowerbed?"
Knowing the capricious nature of the “queen” of flowers, one should hardly be surprised that she is able to wilted due to any agrotechnical mistake. Pests, rodents and diseases can also lead to wilting.
Agricultural technology for roses
Choose the right place for your rose: it must be penetrated by the sun, be open, but not thoroughly blown. Draft and severe shading can cause premature flower wilting.
After planting the plant in open ground, let it settle in a new place, not expecting blooming soon. The rose is quite drought-resistant, but with a large moisture deficit, the bush withers or does not bloom at all.
Take care of the soil for roses - it must be fertile, lightweight and loose. If the land is heavy on your site, at least half a meter deep plow the area where you will plant roses: their root system grows to 70 cm. If the roots cannot breathe, the flower will fade.
Signs of early rose withering may occur due to improper feeding:
- Chlorosis develops due to a lack of magnesium. Leaflets are covered with characteristic red and yellow spots, and then fall off.
- A little nitrogen - the leaves turn yellow and stop growing.
- The lack of iron - the leaf turns yellow, but the veins do not lose their natural color.
- Manganese deficiency is manifested by the same external signs as iron deficiency.
To make up for the missing trace elements, a comprehensive top dressing of the soil is carried out.
Another typical mistake of a beginner grower is incorrect pruning of bushes: numerous species and varieties of the “queen” of flowers need different methods of rejuvenating pruning.
Be sure to get rid of weak shoots - then the bush will invest in the formation of new buds. Cut the wild undergrowth from below - it prevents the rose from blooming.
Pests and diseases
Insects, like people, do not bypass the rose with their attention. The leaves of a rose can dry out if a spider mite or rosan cicada settle on them. Both pests suck out the juice from the leaves, multiplying at a tremendous speed, so these parasites must be eliminated promptly.
Premature yellowness and rapid leaf decay may be the result of the “work” of a saw cut saw. This parasite makes tunnels inside young shoots. Such stems are removed and burned.
Unfortunately, roses are very susceptible to fungal infections, which also cause the plant to wilt. This is powdery mildew, infectious burns, black spotting, gray rot and others.
All fungal ailments must be treated with systemic fungicides, not forgetting to use different drugs to avoid addiction.
Country rodents - mice, rats, moles - are also responsible for the health of the rosary: they spoil the root system of the bush, causing it to wither.
Being the master of the flower garden is a very responsible and troublesome task, and how grateful it is, luxurious fragrant roses saved by you from withering will tell.
