Landscaping-Gardening There could be various reasons why you would want to transplant roses. One reason is because you would like to place them in an area of your garden that receives more sunlight, or you may simply want to change the way your garden looks. No matter what reasons you may have, there are a couple things you must know before you even start transplanting roses. Prior to anything else, the ground where the roses will be transplanted on has to be set up. Rose gardening requires that the roots carry enough water into the stems and the leaves. However, while transplanting roses, the roots may get exposed to the sun, which would cause them to dry out. Transplanting roses to a location that is quite a driving distance away from the original may be tedious for the rose plant, so you would need to place a cover on the roots. Try a wet burlap fabric. The plant should be watered a day before you transplant the roses. This is the key behind successful transplants. You cannot transplant a plant if it is already dry and wilted. A plant that has a lot of water in it has a higher likelihood of surviving since it would still have moisture left even if a couple of the roots are lost during the move. Rose plant roots get into the soil really deep. If the plant is able to absorb a lot of water, the chances of its survival will be greater. When you transplant roses, you are essentially digging out the entire plant. Try to get the larger part of the root ball if you can. You do not have to prune the top growth to help the plant live. This is important for sugar production. In fact if you cut out the growth, it becomes detrimental to the plant. Sometimes while people are in the process of transplanting roses, they will find that the rose plants begin to wilt. This may be because of the poor water circulation, which may be caused by parts that have not recovered. To solve this, increase the water intake and prune the parts that are not recovering. Before the transplant, you can put bone meal, one cup at the most, in the hole prepared for the plant. The rose plant should also be planted higher than it used to be so that it can settle comfortably inside the hole. You can position the bud union around two inches from ground level. After you have watered the plant and let it settle, you can remove air pockets by pressing on the plant. People who occasionally transplant roses say that the bad time to do this is during the growth season. Roses are easier to transplant when they lie dormant since this decreases the chances of the plant going into shock. It also tends to be smaller after its annual pruning so you will have an easier time moving it. Rose gardening is a good way to spend your free time, because you will be gifted with lovely, fragrant flowers, for as long as you understand how to take care of your plants well.
