ideal backup

As a support for climbing plants, choose not little weaker trees that may collapse under the weight of their branches and foliage, and trees with sufficiently strong trunks. For plegistyh roses, which require a lot of air and sun, the ideal support will be trees with light foliage. If the crown of the tree is too thick, you can thin out it by deleting old and superfluous branches, -and the roses will create the necessary conditions for growth. Having planted a rose at the base of the tree, tie her long shoots to the trunk, so they quickly found their way to the top.

The plant is planted near the base of the tree, immediately begin to compete with them for water and nutrients. At first, the advantage will be on the side of the tree, accustomed to their habitat: it will take them from a new neighbor. But support forces roses can use simple trick: the prepared hole put an old bucket or barrel with a remote down and pre-plant to plant. wall of the container will not allow the roots of the tree to take away from the rose water and nutrients after her watering and fertilizing.
