Hybrid tea roses are present in many flower gardens and gardens. They are quite popular, and therefore every year this species is replenished with new original varieties. The cultivation of such varieties is interesting to many summer residents, but, unfortunately, it is not possible in all conditions.

Depending on the chosen variety, you can get not only large and small bushes, various shapes and colors of the flower, but also the opportunity to observe different shades of one variety during the flowering season (this is inherent in some hybrids).

Proper and timely fertilizer will enable plants to develop and bloom properly. The best for these purposes is slurry and mineral fertilizers. First of all, nitrogen fertilizers should be applied to the soil. This is done in the spring. About three weeks before the beginning of flowering, roses are fed with potassium-phosphorus fertilizers.
If you have chosen slurry for feeding, then you must prepare it before applying. The settled and diluted fertilizer is introduced into special furrows, which are made at a distance of 30-35 cm from the extreme lateral shoots. This happens as follows: furrows are shed with water, slurry, and after drying, they are covered with earth. The next day, loosening the soil.
