Home Living : May 24th 2011
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 24, 2011 Rose by any other name » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Winter is rose time. This seems an odd concept because most rose plants shed leaves and flowers throughout the cool months. But it's an apt term because much of the seasonal rose activity, especially pruning and planting, takes place in winter. The reason winter's the star season in the rose calendar is because roses are deciduous -- their roots and tops become dormant in winter and, while they're in this state, they can be cut back, lifted and transplanted with little risk. Here's some rose facts to get you started on your rose gardens: Most roses are produced in the ground. The vigorous rootstock is grown first and eventually the desirable and desired -- rose is budded (a form of grafting) on to the top. The strong roots ensure the rose plant develops more quickly and has much more vigour. When the rose is at a saleable size, it is taken out of the ground in its dormant period and moved with no soil at all around its roots. Hence it is a lot easier and cheaper to transport than if it was in a pot. These days, rose roots mostly come packed into moisture-holding material and then into plastic. When you're buying packaged roses, look for plump, unshrivelled stems that are a healthy colour. Don't worry too much if the rose has only one single stem. A sunny position is vital, and good soil drainage is a must. Dig the soil to a depth of 20-25cm, adding in some compost or well-aged manure. The day before planting, water well to moisten the soil, then allow to drain. Next day, unwrap the rose, remove the packaging material and sit the roots in a bucket of water. This hydrates the roots and cleans off any unwanted soil or packaging. While the rose is soaking, dig the planting hole and create a small mound in the base. #URTAINS "LINDS &URNITURE !CCESSORIES &ABRICS 5PHOLSTERY TEMPO INTERIORS INTERIOR DECORATING & DESIGN -ILITARY 2D -/3-!. -ON &RI AM PM 3AT AM PM WWW TEMPOINTERIORS COM AU I 4HU\MHJ[\YPUN J\Z[VT RP[JOLUZ HUK QVPULY` ZPUJL 7YVMLZZPVUHS KLZPNU HUK WYVQLJ[ THUHNLTLU[ ZLY]PJL >PUULY VM /0( H^HYKZ PU Art of Kitchens Our reputation is built on our experience and quality 763@<9,;/(5, +669: -69 ;/, 790*, 6- 3(405(;, *HSS \Z MVY H KLZPNU HUK X\V[L 6WLU KH`Z 7LUUHU[ /PSSZ 9VHK ;OVYUSLPNO 9908 9387 4PSSLY :[YLL[ *HTTLYH` 8920 8888 www.artofkitchens.com.au *65+0;065: (773@ ! ;OPZ VMMLY VUS` HWWSPLZ [V RP[JOLUZ VYKLYLK PU 4H` :LL [OL :7,*0(3 6--,9 ZLJ[PVU VM V\Y ^LIZP[L MVY TVYL KL[HPSZ Ph:9999 6060 Showroom: Unit 8, 101 Darley St, Mona Vale Open 6 days for your convenience ABSOL Awning Blind & Shutter Solutions www.absol.com.au Awnings Blinds Shutters Shade & Energy Up to 30% off Winter SALE!
