Rose

In this encyclopedia, roses have been divided into several categories according to their characteristics. Species roses; Floribunda; Hybrid tea; Shrub roses; Miniature roses; Climbers and Ramblers. Old roses includes those deciduous shrubs that arose as sports or hybrids of the rose species. The specific classification is shown under 'Type' in the encyclopedia. Certain basic provisions are essential for roses. They require good drainage; Roses will not thrive in waterlogged ground. They also need an open sunny position. A few tree climbing roses do well in partial shade but generally, roses need as much light as possible. They thrive in any soil except pur sand, solid chalk or blue gault clay. They are tolerant of lime but will be at their best in soil that is slightly acid with a pH reading of 6.5. With the exception of some old roses (Albas, Damascs, Gallicas) ans some of the wild species, all roses require a rich soil. Where this is not present, organic or inorganic manures should be added.

Planting

From Late Autumn TO Late Spring

Prepare the planting site by digging over the bed and incorporate liberal quantities of well rotted manure or compost; lighten heavy clay soil with half rotted straw. Dress the top soil with plenty of peat mixed with hop manure and chopped up turf. Fresh animal manure is harmful to the roots and should only be used in the bottom spit. Where possible, prepare the planting site a few weeks in advance. Do this in late summer for planting in autumn. Plant at any time between late autumn and late spring. Prepare a planting mixture of bone meal and moist peat. Spread out the roots in the planting hole and add the planting mixture until the roots are covered. Add soil and firm in the plant by treading.
