This operation is carried out in the period immediately after flowering, the cuttings must have a length of about thirty centimeters and will be planted in a soil composed of peat and sand; when they have rooted and have reached a sufficient height, they can be transplanted. The best time for transplanting is the spring season.

For information on other types of rose propagation go to the "garden" section of the "roses" section.


Pruning

Pruning the rose is necessary in order to eliminate dry or damaged branches, give it a harmonious shape or if you want to give weak branches greater strength. In case of cultivation in an area with a mild climate, pruning must be carried out in September, in case of cold weather in February (see "garden" section "roses" section). A topping operation can be carried out to favor the development of lateral buds.


Flowers

The flowers of the white rose are born solitary and come together in groups forming umbrellas, they are formed by white petals. As previously mentioned, the calyx is made up of five green sepals. They bloom from May to September.


Diseases and parasites

Like the other types of rose, even the white one is subject to the attack of many diseases and parasites. Cochineal, aphids, beetles, hymenoptera, downy mildew etc. are some of the enemies of this wonderful flower. (See "garden" section "roses" section).


Sale

Remember that when you buy a rose plant, before transplanting it you must aerate the roots well and remove the damaged ones.


Most common species

Currently there are various species of white roses on the market, below we will explain the main characteristics of the most common ones.

Rose Avalanche: it is a species used particularly as a cut flower, it is a type of rose cultivated mainly in Holland and has a very long duration. The main characteristic of this rose is to have buds twice the size of the others used as a cut flower; it can have between sixty and one hundred petals. It is the most used rose to create wedding arrangements.

Rose Akito: this white rose can reach a height of about sixty to seventy centimeters and has good-sized flowers.

Rose Escimo: it is a variety of white rose in miniature, has a bushy development. It blooms in late spring-early summer or late summer-early autumn and has delicately scented white flowers.


Curiosity

The denomination of Rosa Bianca was given to a group of Christian students who fought the Nazi regime in a non-violent way.




In the language of flowers, roses always speak of love. Whether they are single or in bunches, the message they send is tinged with passion if they are red, with friendship if they are pink, with jealousy if they are yellow, with purity if they are white. This does not mean that a love must necessarily be chaste or platonic, to be honored with a rose with white petals: whether it is immature, childish or indissoluble, tender, sincere or clear, the occasions and recipients to give a white rose are multiple. Stuck in a bouquet of red roses, it indicates devotion to eternity. Given to parents, children, relatives and very close friends, it becomes the symbol of the bond that crosses the barriers of time and space.

About cultivation, the white rose lives well in a vase but gives the best of itself in land (the best time to plant is October or the months of January and February. The important thing is that it enjoys a bright exposure and that it is protected from drafts. It is also essential to water it frequently but paying attention to do not wet the leaves and flowers so as to avoid the appearance of fungi.For pruning, it is good to use suitable scissors and respect the right periods.

Variety of white roses

Very common on the market are the Avalanche roses: they are mostly grown in Holland and florists use them for bouquets of cut flowers since they last very long and have much larger buds than average (they can have between 60 and 100 petals). Equally frequent is also the Pink Akito: the bud is of medium size but the stem is very long, reaching up to 70 centimeters in height. Finally the Rose Escimo, that is, the miniature white little roses that grow in bushes, bloom in late spring and early autumn and give an intense and delicate scent.


Rosa - Rosa: The flowerbed and the vase

Roses are generally grown in the open ground, where they can widen their root system as desired and are often grown as single specimens, leaving at least 50-80 cm of free space on each side.

A bed of ground cover roses, on the other hand, requires a more dense planting, in order to obtain a real carpet of flowers, the ground coverings are usually planted in the number of 3-5 per square meter, depending on the final size of the plants.

For a row of roses, on the other hand, we will tend to space the plants by at least 35-45 cm, so that they can become cupped if we have chosen very vigorous plants, we will leave up to 60-80 cm between the two plants.

Climbing roses tend to develop a lot, and to better make them bloom it is good to cultivate them by arching the branches, in order to favor the development of lateral twigs for this reason an adult climbing rose can develop laterally for 2-3 meters in width, let's take this into account when we place two climbing roses close together.

If we wish we can cultivate our roses in pots to be able to do so it is necessary to have capacious pots, so that the shrubs develop a good root system we fill the pots with good universal soil, mixed with common garden soil and a little manure, to improve them. fertility and dough. We always remember that potted plants need a little more care than their cousins ​​placed in the ground, this is because they have a limited amount of land available, so they suffer more from drought, or from excess water they are also afraid of plus the lack or excesses of fertilizations.

How to Sow and Plant

  • Sow eggplant seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost in spring using a seed starting kit.
  • Sow seeds ¼ inch deep in seed-starting formula
  • Keep the soil moist at 75 degrees F
  • Seedlings emerge in 10-21 days
  • As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill or grow seedlings 3-4 inches beneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours per day, off for 8 hours at night. Raise the lights as the plants grow taller. Incandescent bulbs will not work for this process because they will get too hot. Most plants require a dark period to grow, do not leave lights on for 24 hours.
  • Seedlings do not need much fertilizer, feed when they are 3-4 weeks old using a starter solution (half strength of a complete indoor houseplant food) according to manufacturer's directions.
  • If you are growing in small cells, you may need to transplant the seedlings to 3 or 4 inch pots when seedlings have at least 3 pairs of leaves before transplanting to the garden so they have enough room to develop strong roots
  • Before planting in the garden, seedling plants need to be "hardened off". Accustom young plants to outdoor conditions by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week. Be sure to protect them from wind and hot sun at first. If frost threatens at night, cover or bring containers indoors, then take them out again in the morning. This hardening off process toughens the plant's cell structure and reduces transplant shock and scalding.

Planting in the Garden:

  • Select a location in full sun with good rich moist organic soil. Make sure you did not grow tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or potatoes in the bed the previous year to avoid disease problems.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 8 inches. Level with a rake to remove clumps of grass and stones.
  • Eggplants should be set 2-3 feet apart in a row with the rows spaced 3-4 feet apart.
  • Dig a hole for each plant large enough to amply accommodate the root ball.
  • Carefully remove the plant from its pot and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root development.
  • Fill the planting hole with soil to the top and press soil down firmly with your hand leaving a slight depression around the plant to hold water.
  • Use a plant tag as a location marker. This is particularly important if you are trying different varieties. It is very difficult to tell which variety is which from the foliage.
  • Water thoroughly, so that a puddle forms in the saucer you have created. This settles the plants in, drives out air pockets and results in good root-to-soil contact.
  • Eggplants may also be planted in containers. Use a container at least 18-24 inches wide and deep and use a commercial potting mix rather than garden soil.
