Rosa Landora hybrid tea: planting and care in open ground

The rose is not a demanding plant and gives excellent results on soils rich in organic substances. Caring for a rose consists in timely watering, feeding, loosening, weeding, pruning, protection from pests and diseases, shelter for the winter. Landora is planted all year round, except for the cold season, but it is better to do it in the spring (April or early May). The optimal air temperature is not lower than +20 °C. In order for the bush to feel great, it is important to create conditions:


    • sun for at least 4-6 hours a day;
    • nutrient-rich soil;
    • good drainage for the roots;
    • sufficient air around the stems;
    • mulching the roots to retain moisture and prevent the growth of weeds;
    • abundant, but infrequent watering;
    • regular pruning of dry branches and faded buds.


Choosing a place Roses should be planted in a sunny, wind-protected place with free air movement. The more heat and light the plant receives, the stronger the rose blooms. Sunlight is necessary for roses in the first half of the day, which ensures rapid evaporation of dew and will reduce the likelihood of fungal diseases.

Sunlight is necessary for rosesAvoid places where trees give a thick shadow, shaded by other plants or buildings. Choose a place where roses will get enough air, and do not plant them too close to a friend.

Importantly! Roses cannot be planted where plants of the Rosaceae family have already grown. If there is no other place for planting, the soil should be replaced in the holes with another, taken where roses have never grown before.

Roses grow well in different types of soil. Soil acidity can be around 5.6–7.3 pH. Fertilizers must be applied during planting. To improve structure and fertility, compost, peat and other organic matter are added to heavy clay soil to improve nutrition and drainage. Compost is added to dry sandy soils to retain moisture in the roots of plants. In a particularly hot climate, roses should be protected from the midday sun. In colder weather, plant the shrub near a south- or west-facing fence or wall to minimize the risk of frost in winter. Planting a rose bush

Additional Information! Rose bushes, unlike other plants, should be planted deep, the grafting site should be 3 cm below the soil, which protects the roots from excessive overheating and frost. When the plant is planted deep, additional roots develop.

The size of the hole in which the Landor rose is planted is one of the important factors contributing to the good growth of the bush. The pit should be deep enough and wide enough for the roots to be located freely in it. Dig a pit measuring 50×50 cm at a distance of 60 cm from each other, ensuring good drainage.

Watering the seedling

Planting a rose bush One day before planting, you can treat the roots with a growth stimulator. Even without this treatment, they should be soaked in water for several hours before planting. Roses are planted on a windless, overcast day, planting on a hot, sunny day can stress the plants. At the bottom of the hole, manure is added, and a layer of soil with a thickness of 10 cm is poured. The roots of the rose should not come into contact with the manure. The bush is placed in a hole and covered with earth. Water and compact the soil around the trunk. When the soil settles, more soil is added around the trunk next to the place where the bush is grafted. This will protect the root from drying winds or frost.
Watering.  Roses need regular watering, especially in hot weather. However, you should not overmoisten the soil, as this can lead to rotting of the roots. A hardy shrub with a tap root system, it is best to water roses deeply and regularly, but not too often. Therefore, you should not overdo it with watering, never wet the leaves, so as not to contribute to fungal diseases. In the first year of growth, the Landor bush is watered once a week, depending on the weather.
Loosening is carried out after each watering to ensure better access of air to the root system. Loosen to a depth of 8 cm, trying not to touch the roots. If the basal zone is covered with mulch, which prevents the growth of weeds, the loosening procedure will not be needed. If the plant is planted in well-prepared soil, there will be enough granulated fertilizer in spring and at the end of summer. Additional feeding is carried out if the growth of the bush slows down. They stop fertilizing roses until the end of summer. This is necessary so that new stems are not formed, which will have difficulty overwintering.

How to cut a rose?

The main pruning is done in the spring, before growth begins. A year after planting in the bush, the stems should be cut to stimulate their growth and flowering. It is also necessary to remove all dry branches. The purpose of pruning is to give each stem enough air to prevent disease. Pruning is done slightly above the place where the branches are formed, at an angle of 45 °, shortening them by 1/3. In the summer, be sure to cut off the faded heads to stimulate the next wave of flowering. Withered flowers are cut to the first nearest leaf. This promotes the formation of new flower buds.
Pruning roses

Pruning can also help restore the shape of a rose bush and improve its aesthetic appearance. In general, regular pruning of roses helps to create a healthy and beautiful rose bush that will please with its flowering and appearance.

Pay attention! The ideal temperature for flowering is from 12 to 25 ° C. If it is lower, the plant can form so-called blind shoots, i.e. without the formation of buds, and above 25 ° C, the flowers will be smaller, and vegetation will slow down. Therefore, in hot and arid areas, roses can go dormant in the summer months, and it is useless to water, fertilize or prune them often. It is better to resume care after intense heat to get lush autumn blooms.

Shelter for the winter

Hybrid tea garden roses are not able to overwinter without a special shelter. However, Landora is quite resistant to frost (up to -23 ° C). In November, the bush is sprinkled with earth to a height of 15 cm to protect the branches from freezing. The created hill is removed in March,

Pests and diseases

Landora is resistant to diseases, so it does not need special annual treatments. However, under unfavorable growing conditions, it can be affected by the most common diseases of roses, including powdery mildew, black spot.

Black spot

Parts of plants affected by powdery mildew must be cut off, otherwise the disease may spread further. Then treat with anti-mold products to prevent re-infection. In case of infection with black spot, remove all diseased leaves with black dots, and treat roses with appropriate fungicides according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can fight pests by spraying with an insecticidal soap solution. The Landor rose is a capricious flower, but correct and timely procedures for planting and growing this plant will allow you to enjoy beautiful and fragrant flowering.
