Why does not the rose bloom? Ask yourself
What happiness, that you have the opportunityplant a rose in your house. It does not matter - a large bush in human growth, a chic lace in the garden, a Chinese or miniature rose in a pot - it will always be a joy. If, of course, blossom. And if not? It will be a great chagrin for you, and only you will be to blame for the failure. Do not know why the rose does not bloom? Because there is no proper care for her.
What does a rose like?
Like every queen, the rose is capricious and whimsical. She loves good soil, decent food, plenty of light, but not under the searing rays of the sun. She also likes patience and respect. These are the general rules for all roses. And what special requirements each species has - just below.
What did you do wrong?
It seems that all the conditions are met: Seedling planted in loose fertile soil on the sunny side. But why does not the rose bloom? First, without panic, things do not happen all of a sudden. The bush should take root in a new place, give good sprouts. And then, it may not bloom in the first season, it depends on the variety. At the initial stage it is important that the plant is healthy, gave strong shoots. And if already in the second year there are no flowers - then it's time to sound the alarm. Perhaps you forgot about the obligatory top dressing. Or maybe overdo it with nitrogen fertilizers - the rose prefers potassium, superphosphate. It is necessary to apply fertilizers moderately, but regularly, while necessarily loosening the basal soil.
Competent pruning - half the success
During the season, the rose needs to be thinned out in proportionneed. To serious problems, why the rose does not bloom, is the excessive thickening of the bush. It is necessary to cut off old or improperly growing stems in time, and also wild growths - those stems that break through from the root and differ from other shoots with pale green small leaves. They need to be removed, as they say, on the root so that they do not deplete the plant. By the way, violent shoots are one of the main reasons why a stiff rose does not bloom. But in this case, the attitude to young shoots should be more legible: they replace the rapidly aging stems. So, removing excess shoots, there is a risk of overdoing. Leave each time the strongest, growing in the right direction shoots and as early as possible tie them - in fact, next season they will be the main stems, strewn with flowers.
Why does not the rose blossom at home?
Most often in the premises grow hibiscus, orChinese rose. This beautiful plant perfectly feels in the apartments and offices, growing into voluminous bushes up to one and a half meters tall. Brilliant dark green foliage creates an atmosphere of coziness in the house. But even here you often hear complaints: why does not the Chinese rose blossom? By and large, it is not so capricious, perfectly lends itself to the formation of the crown, quickly goes into growth and, in principle, should bloom almost all year round. True, for this it requires certain privileges for itself. You can not put it in a dark corner, but you can not even in direct sunlight. And, of course, it's bad for her near a hot battery. She loves water and immediately reacts to the drying of the earthy coma, but it is not necessary to fill it too much. A large plant, it would seem, feels better in a large pot, but not hibiscus. Its root system is more suitable pot of medium size, so as not to require excess moisture, which the rose can not master. Since spring, the bush can be taken out to the yard or to the balcony. Here, perhaps, and all the secrets of roses. Although no, we forgot about the pests. Very prickly on the pink bushes are all kinds of mites, thrips, aphids, whiteflies. If you do not take care of their destruction, you can forget about flowering roses.
