Gardening Rose Organic  


It is in the interest of the community and environment to have great popularity of organic gardening. Rose organic gardening is also a part of the whole scheme. Rose is the queen of all flowers. This majestic flower adds splendor and beauty to any garden. The rose flower not only has immense beauty, but also there lie medicinal qualities in it. Rose petals contain astringent tannin. They are very effective in controlling bleeding wounds. Rose petals and rose water can cure many stomach ailments. However, the continuous meddling in the ways of nature has greatly weakened the quality of this plant. The hybridization yields beautiful varieties of roses but it also results in weakening the plant. This makes it prone to pathogen attack.

Organic gardening prefers the use of other organisms, plant extracts and natural wastes to enrich and fortify the soil. Some organisms are used to form a symbiotic relation ship. A symbiotic relationship is a bond that is beneficial to all the participating members. An example is Mycorrhizal fungus that forms a symbiotic relationship with rose plants. This fungus attaches itself to the roots of the plant and uses the carbohydrates stored by the rose plant to thrive. However, it helps the rose plant to absorb the minerals existing in the soil much better. Hence, the mycorrhizae in the system help the rose plants to thrive. Another symbiotic relationship is formed between some bacterium and the secretions of the roots of the rose plant. These bacteria, attracted by the secretions, attach themselves to the roots. In return, they ward off many dangerous and harmful fungi.

The humus is made by the decomposition of dead plant leaves and stems by soil organisms. Humus and compost also help the rose plant to absorb minerals better. Companion plants help each other grow. Roses love the company of Garlic and onion plants, so it is a good ides to plant them alongside. Other good companions for the roses are marigold, mignonettes and thyme. Roses grow well in the soil having a pH from 5.5 to 7. They like a lot of water during the blooming season. Give a thorough soaking to the rose plant in the morning or evening. Add organic rose fertilizers and compost during the growing cycle.

Roses should be planted in spring or early summer. Do not plant them too close together. Mulching is a process in which dead leaves and bark are strewn over the topsoil. Mulching is beneficial for the rose plants. Prune the roses after early spring growth starts. Deadhead the spent flowers for a more bountiful bloom. For enthusiasts of gardening, Rose organic gardening yield very satisfactory and bountiful results.
