Why do you want to trim the rose flowers?
1. Before you start, let ’s find out, what plant are we talking about?
This is actually a confused account.
There are currently 13000 varieties of rose cultivars on the market. The ancestors are hybrid offspring of several wild plants of the genus Rosa 100.
In a narrow sense, rose refers to the hybrid offspring of rose plants that can continue to bloom in summer and autumn (in warm areas or tropical regions, and even year-round flowering), and has both Asian and European rose gene.
These rose varieties with high flowering frequency can be divided into shrub rose (hybrid perfume rose, rose flower rose, hybrid periwinkle rose, etc.), mini rose, climbing rose, ground rose, etc. according to the tree shape.
Common rose varieties on the market are generally in the above categories. These varieties often bloom on the branches of the year, so they can often be recut when pruning.
The rose in a broad sense also includes some of its wild ancestors and early ancient rose varieties. Our Chinese name generally refers to it as XX rose, such as French rose, Damascus rose (this is a plant that extracts rose essential oil) and so on.
Most of these European rose plants only bloom once in spring or midsummer, and the flowering branches usually develop for 2 years or more. The pruning of them is generally based on light shearing, and the main branches are renewed year by year.
Remember, before you want to slap the rose, think about what kind of rose variety your family has.
In fact, it is also easy to distinguish, and those roses that can bloom many times a year can be recut.
Second, the purpose of clear pruning
Many people do n’t trim and do n’t trim, because the reason is not clear.
The purpose of rose pruning is mainly two: to prevent diseases and insects, plastic surgery.
The rose has strong branching power, and it is easy to produce weak, intersecting, and endophytic branches. These dense branches that block each other not only block light and grow poorly, but also hinder ventilation, and are easy to become the site of disease and insect infection.
And the flowers on the weak branches are generally small and unattractive.
When the leaves and residual flowers of P. rosea were removed by pruning, the number of germs and insects were reduced, and less or no medicine could be used. The flower friends who have raised the rose know that the rose is very susceptible to diseases and insects, and the rose with poor growth is generally a medicine jar.
