Pruning of the Austrian rose

As with all ornamental roses, pruning is one of the most important and fundamental cultivation interventions for the Austrian rose. In fact, thanks to pruning, the rose can find new vigor every season, producing stems and especially flowers. Pruning is also essential to order the rose, arranging the shape of its foliage and reshaping the profile of the plant.

The cut is to be made before the rose fully resumes its vegetative activity but after the risk of frost has passed. With the pruning you will have to eliminate the dead branches, the branches in bad shape and broken during the winter, the branches that have grown too much and in general we will shorten all the branches up to 1/3. The pruning operation must be decided, especially in ground cover species such as the Austrian rose, to allow a quick and pleasant regrowth.

Austriana: How and where to plant the Austrian rose

The Austrian rose is a plant that should be placed in a bright part of the garden, where the sun's rays arrive direct for several hours. This rose loves the sun but also grows in areas with few hours of light, but where the sun is scarce the flowers will certainly not be many and even the vigor of the rose could be affected.

After having chosen the position suitable for the Austrian rose, proceed with the construction of the hole which must be one and a half times wide compared to the earthen bread. After opening the hole and making sure that its depth is not excessive or too limited, spread a 5 cm layer of soil on the bottom. The soil must be of excellent quality and above all it must have a good percentage of inert materials (pumice and medioperlite) and peat.

This layer of soil will aid drainage and facilitate the plant in its early stages of growth.

After closing the hole with the rest of the soil, the earth will be compacted by crushing it with your feet to prevent holes and air gaps in the ground.
