20.08.2017 the Rose

If there is a need for transplanting roses to another place in the fall, then having done everything correctly, and having prepared in advance, you can avoid a fatal outcome for the plant. The correct transplant allows you to create good conditions for the bush for the winter.

Place and period of transplanting bushes

The most favorable for transplantation is the time interval between the end of September and the beginning of October. Since it will be easier for the plant to take root at the moment when the influx of nutrients to the roots begins.

Start preparation should be in advance. In August, you need to stop feeding, and reduce watering. In the suburbs, in the autumn, roses are transplanted to another place only with the use of mineral fertilizers if the land has been occupied by other plants for a whole year. Any crops deplete the soil, so some mineral components may be lacking in flowers.

The place of transplantation should be under sunlight for most of the day, in addition there should be a good outflow of moisture. Otherwise, in winter, stagnation of water will lead to overheating of the roots. This is especially true for those who live in the Kuban. Warm climatic conditions have been created in this region, which to a large extent prevent the roots from freezing. If there is a lot of water, then the plant may rot.

How to save the root system?

To preserve all the roots, it is necessary to water the plant abundantly before transplanting, which will lead to the creation of a coma from the earth around the roots. Transplanting in this way becomes more secure. If the plant is transported over a long distance, then the lump with the earth should be carefully wrapped with a cloth and tied around the root neck. It will be possible to plant directly with this fabric, it will undergo decomposition, but do not forget to untie it.

When transplanting a rose bush to another place, they resort to pruning roots, branches with leaves.

The bush needs to be dug wide to preserve the roots. If the main rod is long and deep in the soil, then it should be chopped, trying to save most of it. Proper transplantation of roses in the fall to another place using this technology will save all the important parts of the root system.


Shrubs in the autumn are pruned in accordance with the climate of your region. The difficulties lie in the characteristics of the plant. Some species, after transplanting and pruning, begin to restore vital processes and can confuse autumn with spring. Therefore, in order to protect yourself from the death of a rose bush, it is best not to carry out this procedure. Only damaged or dry branches can be removed.

Cutting off the shoots is not always a good idea. If the autumn is warm and the air is quite humid, then in this case, cutting off the shoots can lead to the awakening of sleeping buds, and this in turn will lead to the appearance of new twigs that die in the winter. In this case, it is not recommended to touch the shoots.

The situation is the opposite: autumn is cool, and before the frost starts there is about 20-30 days, then you can cut off the shoots and not worry about the planted bush having no time to get ready for the cold. It all depends on weather conditions and the region. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the weather that awaits your city in the coming month.
