English roses are a relatively new variety of ornamental crops. Suffice it to say that the first of the English roses only recently stepped over a fifty-year milestone.
The founder of this unusual group of horticultural crops is Farmer D. Austin (Great Britain). Roses "Charles Austin" and "Pat Austin", bred by him, received wide recognition from flower growers in different countries.
Roses Charles Austin are loved by flower growers thanks to the large beautiful flowers in the shape of cups. As blooming, flowers acquire various shades of apricot color. Petals have a more saturated color at the base with a gradual transition to a creamy shade along the edges. Feature of the variety is a pleasant strong smell with fruit notes.
Bushes are upright, with dense foliage. The height of the bush on average reaches 1.2 m. These roses are attractive not only flowers but also leaves. The variety is resistant to adverse conditions. Treatments that allow you to get flowers again include pruning and fertilizing immediately after the rose has first blossomed.
Resistance to rain in plants is average. With prolonged rains, some flowers may be damaged. The flower in diameter reaches from 8 to 10 cm.Attention! The plant is resistant to diseases, only in excessively rainy weather it can be affected by black spot.
Standard roses by Charles Austin
The essence of growing roses on a shtambe is that roses are grafted onto the rose hips, from which they form a flowering crown. Variety Charles Austin looks good on the stock and solo, and in combination with other varieties. In the latter case, it is necessary to choose grafts of equal strength so that the plants do not oppress each other. As a rule, vaccination is done in a T-shaped incision. A standard rose is formed in springtime. It can be both a flowering “tree” and a rounded low-growing shrub that will adorn an alpine slide.
Prevention and treatment of black spot
Black spot is quite a serious disease of roses, requiring immediate treatment. The plant ceases to grow, on the leaves appear "sun-shaped" spots of black color. The development of the disease occurs in a downward direction. In advanced cases, the spots merge with each other. Flowering becomes more scarce than healthy plants.
The most effective method is to immediately remove the affected leaves and burn them. For the treatment of a diseased plant, fungicides are used. Spraying frequency - 1 time in 2 weeks. It is important to use several drugs so that the fungus does not have time to adapt. Especially help tools such as Skor, Oxyh, Profit, Strobe. For spraying soil and plants, you can also use Bordeaux mixture.
Of the popular ways of dealing with black spot help.
- Decoction dandelion.
- Broth peel onions.
- Sprinkle with crushed ash.
- Infusion of grass (horsetail, nettle).
Anastasia, TulaRosa is simply gorgeous. I am engaged in cultivation of roses for a long time, at the amateur level. About these beauties nothing, to my shame, did not know. Charles Austin was my first English rose, and I like the British one the most. The flowers are not showered from the rain, pale apricot shade. True, with time fade. However, this is not a disadvantage, but a virtue. Lighter old flowers and just blooming bright buds give an incredibly beautiful combination. Sometimes it is even difficult to believe that they truly belong to the same variety and grow on one bush. Alexander, Perm Four years ago, planted 5 Charles Austin bushes. "Englishwoman" I like their reliability and unpretentiousness. The first bloom is pleasing to the eye, flowers are abundant, large. To achieve re-flowering, you have to "sweat" a little. Remove weak and faded flowers, feed them. English rose looks great on the bush and in the bouquet. It is better to put the buds in the water - the flower opens and it is worth longer. Alexander, Anapa Charles Austin is a good variety. The only drawback he has is not too durable flowers. And there is one more minus. It is worth gape with trimming - throws out the "fishing rods" like crazy. The plant is very strong, but to make it feel good, the bushes need space. Other varieties, if planted next, the "Englishwoman" simply survives. But I like it, I think more to buy.
