The planting time for this rose is spring. As soon as the soil warms up, you can bury the cutting in the ground with the grafting site.
Watering is carried out once a week. If the weather is hot, then you need to water the plant more often, depending on the degree of dryness of the soil. Fertilizers are applied to the soil before the appearance of young shoots, but no later than the end of August.
If the rose has wintered, then the upper part of the plant is pruned, leaving 3 buds on the shoot. Cut off no more than 15 cm.
