Many have grown roses for years in greenhouses with marvelous success.
If you are one of the new greenhouse gardeners, check out the information below that will guarantee to grow gorgeous greenhouse roses.
1. Select a spot in your greenhouse that has plenty of direct light.
- Roses needs 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight to grow.
- Also, make sure the each rose plant has its own space, so that no other plants will block the sunlight coming to the plant.
- This goes for any variety of roses from the miniatures up to the long-stem roses.
2. Choose the type of roses that you will be growing.There are many varieties from which you can choose including miniature, tea, and long stem just to mention some examples.
- It depends on what you want to do with them, as to the variety you choose to grow.
- If you want cut flowers to go in your tall vases in the house, then the long-stem variety will be ideal. However, the tea roses also are ideal for cut flowers.
- The miniature roses are ideal for potted arrangements in place of vases.
- You can even choose climbing rose varieties, if you have enough space in the greenhouse.
3. All roses need well-drained soil.
- This means you should make sure the pots for them have drainage holes.
- The larger variety of roses will need pots that are about 9 to 10 inches in diameter. With miniature roses, the pots can be a bit smaller.
- The pots should be deep enough to accommodate the roots of the roses, so they can have room to grow.
Place a thin layer of small rocks in the pot before adding the potting soil.
- Only fill the pot about midway with a potting soil specifically designed for roses, as this will have the exact nutrients that the roses require to grow on top of being well draining.
4. Place the rose plants into the pots and fill with soil to right under where the rose was grafted onto the rootstock.If the roses are on its own rootstock though, it should be planted no deeper than it was planted in its original pot. Thoroughly water the roses.
5. Prune all the branches to about 3 inches from the main stems.Make sure to cut above the outside buds. The inside of the plants should be open to allow for growth.
6. Place the potted roses into the area set aside in #1.Leave some space between the pots to provide the roses ample room to grow.
7. Water the roses whenever the soil starts to dry.
- Roses in pots could need water on a daily basis, so check to make sure the soil is still moist every day.
8. Fertilize at the first sign of new growth with a rose food that is water-soluble.
- Roses need to be fertilized about twice a month after this. Follow the directions on the brand of rose food you choose to know how to apply it.
9. Apply fungicide on roses to prevent black spot from occurring.
- This is applied on the leaves, stem and the soil. If signs of black spot shows up on the leaves, you must cut all the leaves that have it off the plant.
- Do not let the leaves stay on the soil in the pot, but throw them away.
- This prevents the plant from re-infecting itself.
- Apply fungicide on a regular basis according to the directions on it.
