Planting roses – an unusual method that is used in cold regions

In Siberia, we usually have roses grafted on wild rose (its root system is more resistant to winter).

But grafting inhibits plant growth. That is why I have been growing my own rooted roses for many years – they are healthier and bloom profusely. And for planting plants, I use the method developed by my father – an experienced gardener Alexander Kudryavtsev.

I plant roses in a recess – under each bush I dig a hole to a depth of 15-20 cm.To prevent the soil from crumbling, I fix the walls with a wide edge 15 cm high, cut from plastic transport pots with a diameter of 20 cm -25 cm.For temporary use, a wide one is suitable 5-liter ring plastic bottle. For large bushes, you can adapt a 20 cm high plastic bucket with a trimmed bottom. It is in this hole in the fertile soil that I plant roses in spring (as soon as the threat of return frost has passed) or in autumn (in September).

The finished rose garden (I have about 80 plants) looks unusual in early spring: you can see that the roses grow in the hollows. But in summer they will be covered with green shoots with leaves and lush caps of flowers.

It’s easy to warm my roses for the winter. I cover the opening with a piece of glass, plexiglass or polycarbonate. You can also use dense polyethylene, but so that it does not fall into the hole, place the cut twigs crosswise under it. Tightness is not required, the main thing is that the snow does not blow there.

For reliability, you can add fallen leaves from above, plug the gaps between the stems with a handful of dry grass and, if possible, bend the shoots to the ground with wooden slingshots. Using metal hooks, place pieces of cardboard where the metal and the legs meet.

At a depth of 15-20 cm, the roots practically do not freeze, and the air cushion perfectly keeps the trunk with buds below the soil level from frost.

I prune the roses in spring (April). Even in the most severe winters, the shoots and buds located in the deepening do not freeze.

Unfortunately, the method also has disadvantages that I am honest about.

In lowland and marshy areas, rainwater can accumulate in planting depressions, so the method is not suitable for such areas.

In the fall, fallen leaves must be removed from the holes.

The method is good for hybrid tea and floribunda roses. But for climbing, musk and English it is not suitable, as it is desirable that they retain most of the shoots. Therefore, I insulate them in the old-fashioned way, using arches with shielding material.

The method is also not suitable for miniature roses due to the already small growth.
