Features of agricultural technology of the ground cover rose Jazz
One of the main advantages of the Jazz variety is its long flowering period. So, the first flowers appear on the shrub in June, and the culture fades in mid-October. However, in order to enjoy the fragrant flowering of the shrub for so long, certain agricultural practices must be observed.
How and where to plant
To determine the most suitable landing site, it is important to consider the following rules:
- Groundwater. They should be at least 100 cm deep from the roots of the bush. Otherwise, the root system can simply rot.
- Air circulation. Free air circulation is very important for a ground cover rose. It prevents stagnation of liquid in the soil.
Lowlands or swampy areas are absolutely not suitable for planting. Here the plant can rot.
A rose is planted in mid-spring. In the fall, planting should be carried out in a short time, because there is a great risk that the plant will not take root. As for the composition of the soil, it is worth giving preference to loamy or black earth options - the Jazz rose is very fond of soil with a low level of acidity.
The depth of the planting hole should be about 60 cm and its diameter 70 cm. After the plant has been placed in the recess, it is important to carefully spread the roots. As soon as planting is complete, the crop is watered with warm water and mulched with a thick layer of peat.
It should be borne in mind that the landing site should not be in the open sun all day long. The most suitable place is partial shade. Otherwise, the plant can get sunburn and die.
How to care
The main procedures for caring for a Jazz rose include weekly loosening, watering every 2-3 days and feeding. Watering should be done only after the topsoil is completely dry. One bush requires about 15 liters of water. Beforehand, it should be heated in the sun. Closer to autumn, the frequency of watering is gradually reduced, and with the onset of September, it completely stops.
Top dressing is carried out twice a season. For the first time, in early spring, nitrogen compounds are introduced to stimulate crop growth. The second top dressing is done in the summer using potash and phosphorus fertilizers. They affect the formation of buds, maintain a high level of plant immunity.
To stimulate budding, it is recommended to remove the first flowers of the rose. Thus, the next year the shrub will be abundantly covered with flowers.
In the spring, sanitary pruning should be carried out, during which all damaged, dry shoots will be removed. In the fall, this procedure can be carried out again to thin out the shrub a little.
Despite its resistance to cold weather, it is still recommended to cover the plant for the winter. As a heater, coniferous spruce branches are used, which are laid between the branches and on top of the shrub. Gardeners who live in regions with cold winters often make special frames. They are put on plastic bags, which provide reliable protection of the crop from wind and frost.
Common mistakes of rose growers
The most common mistakes gardeners make when growing Jazz include:
- Planting rose bushes close to large plants. Large crops literally take away nutrients from shrubs, as a result of which roses become more susceptible to diseases.
- Excessive watering. An excess of liquid in the soil contributes to an increase in the level of soil acidity. This, in turn, makes it difficult for oxygen to enter the ground.
