In 2007, the tea-hybrid variety was highly appreciated by connoisseurs, lovers of natural beauty in the Netherlands. However, in Russia, the popularity of the flower is not so high - the rose is only beginning to grow in large quantities.

Roses are popular with florists and flower growers.
It is interesting! In 2007, the rose made a splash in the Netherlands - people were so fascinated by the flower that the variety was on top of several independent ratings at once.
Planting is carried out mainly by cuttings, seedlings.
By the time of planting, this type of roses does not differ from other varieties - this is spring or autumn. Both options are suitable for the southern regions, for the Urals and Siberia it is better to stop at the first.
For planting Peach Avalange roses, a site is allocated that is well lit and warmed by the sun. Since plants do not tolerate drafts, it is necessary to select a place with protection from cold air currents.
How to prepare the soil and flower for planting
Pink shrubs prefer drained soils with moderate moisture and acid-base reaction (5.6-7.3 pH). For planting, a soil mixture is prepared, which contains:
- fertile soil - 2 parts,
- humus - 3 parts,
- river sand - 2 parts,
- peat - 1 part.
In each hole, you need to arrange drainage from expanded clay, small stones or gravel.
Seedlings before planting are subject to inspection. In this case, you need to remove the damaged parts of the plant, shorten the long shoots. A seedling height of 35 cm is considered normal.
Preparing the soil for planting
Landing procedure step by step
It is recommended to plant rose bushes, taking into account some simple rules:
- Seedlings must be placed in water for 5 hours to adapt and stimulate vitality in the new environment.
- For planting a seedling, a hole is prepared to a depth of half a meter.
- It is necessary to take into account the size of the root coma of the earth, so that the width of the landing fossa corresponds to the size of the coma.
- Fresh manure should not be placed in the hole.
- The earth in the landing hole should be sprinkled a little with a seal, after filling the hole, the soil should be compacted.
- The planted bush is watered abundantly slowly (2 buckets of water per hole).
- Dry soil must be mulched.
- Around the bush, dig a watering groove.
In the first year, flower buds formed before July must be removed so that the plant grows stronger. Only in this case the rose bush will be prepared for winter as much as possible.
Peach Avalange plants need constant care. The flower feels comfortable and is well formed under favorable temperature conditions. Regardless of the fact that the culture calmly reacts to lower temperatures, it is necessary to plant it in warm soil, in late April - early May. In such conditions, the bushes will take root and will sooner start new shoots.
The Avalange rose variety is a photophilous plant, prefers well-diffused lighting.
Important! Direct sunlight scorching rays, as well as landing in a draft, can ruin the bushes.
Watering rules and humidity
The growth and formation of rose bushes is directly dependent on humidity. A lack of moisture causes a change in the color of the foliage, the appearance of yellowness. Excess will affect the condition of the roots (decay).
In hot dry weather, you need to pour water warmed up in the sun so as not to cause stress on the plant. The regularity and volume of water during irrigation depends on weather conditions. In periods without rain, under one bush you need to give water up to 20 liters at least 2 times a week.
With prolonged rains, on the contrary, they shelter so that the rose bush is not constantly wet.
With the onset of autumn, watering must be stopped.
Top dressing and soil quality
Hybrid tea roses of the Avalange variety need, during growth and flowering, high-quality top dressing in the form of mineral fertilizers (phosphorus, potash, nitrogen).
A solution is prepared per 10 liters of water - 10 g of urea and 15 g of saltpeter. Mineral fertilizing should be alternated with organic additives. During the formation of flower buds, bushes are fed with complex fertilizers.
For this, a solution is prepared:
- water - 10 liters,
- urea - 40 g
- saltpeter - 20 g,
- potassium - 15 g.
Pruning and transplanting
Pruning rose bushes promotes intensive plant formation. The bush is given the desired decorative form. The nutrition of young shoots improves due to the removal of drying branches. The remaining branches receive more air, which is a preventive measure against the occurrence of a number of diseases.
In autumn, all wilted buds, rotten leaves, and weak shoots must be removed from the rose bush. Such care will make it possible to better prepare for the winter.
Spring and autumn are considered the best time for a rose transplant. The bushes are dug out of the soil together with an earthen lump on the roots and transferred to a new landing site. The meaning of preserving the earth coma is to preserve the roots and help adapt the plant to a new place.
For reference! As a rule, a transplant is performed in those cases when the place was originally chosen incorrectly.
Features of wintering a flower
For wintering to be successful, you need to perform several actions:
- Stop feeding with the onset of September.
- It is necessary to cut off the heads of flowers after shedding petals.
- In time, before the onset of cold weather, rose bushes need to be spudded to make an earthen mound about 20 cm high to form additional roots.
- In the last days of September, you should pinch the tops of the shoots, which no longer have time to please the flowers. In October, you can cut the shoots shorter.
- Your "rose garden" should be cleaned of grass, covered with gravel or other shelter.
The Dutch peach rose is not ready for the harsh winters of the Urals and Siberia. In regions where in winter the temperature drops below -25 ° C, she needs additional shelter. As a rule, they cover the bush with spruce, non-woven material, and after the snow falls a small hill is poured.
Fascinated by the magic of beauty, people sometimes plant a rose on the lawns among the grass. In the active period of flowering, an amazing picture is obtained: an emerald background, on which a lushly flowering pink bush or even a group of bushes, strewn with lovely flowers, flaunts. For this placement option, Peach Avalanche rose is suitable like no other.
Of course, to grow such splendor is problematic: the surrounding grass is trying to cover the space around the rose. We have to constantly engage in weeding.
The shape of the rosebud is classic - the petals are collected in a neat, tight glass that can last on the bush for a very long time. Despite the beauty of flowering, the smell around the plant is practically absent. Some gardeners consider this a drawback, but there are connoisseurs of non-aromatic roses.
The buds are most often single, pronounced. However, according to some descriptions, in rare cases, brushes of two or three flowers appeared at the ends of the shoots.
The Avalanche rose blooms with virtually no interruption, from the last days of May, then all summer and until October frosts. The characteristics of the plant are such that miracles should not be expected from repeated flowering. Moreover, for it to pass at the same level, the rose bush must be fed with phosphorus and potassium.
What to do if it does not bloom? Florists are aware of various reasons:
- bad landing place;
- incorrectly trimmed bush;
- improper care;
- inhibits root growth;
- cases of bacterial burn under cover (immediately need to be removed);
- natural aging process.
It is interesting! Depending on the cause, a method of assisting the plant is selected. Until the cause is eliminated, it will not work to achieve high-quality flowering.
Roses propagate by cuttings and layering. The first method is considered preferred.
Cuttings are harvested by cutting shoots. Moreover, planting material can be taken even from any bouquet.
The breeding procedure is performed in the fall.
Rooting cuttings of roses must be carried out according to certain rules:
- cut the cuttings, make the treatment heteroauxin;
- prepare a hole with a depth of about 30 cm, fill it with 2/3 of fertile soil;
- plant the shoots obliquely (angle 45 °), deepen by 2/3 of the handle;
- pour plenty of water.
Rooting cuttings in potatoes
Then you need to cover the cuttings, creating a small greenhouse. To do this, use a plastic container, a glass jar. In the first case, you can make small holes for ventilation. If you use glass, you will have to air the seedlings once a week.
It is interesting! Quite interesting is the option of rooting cuttings in potatoes. In this case, planting material is cut according to the previous scheme, but then the cuttings are inserted into potatoes. In this case, the insides of the vegetable will become a good breeding ground.
Diseases, pests and ways to combat them
If parasites are found (spider mite, leafworm, aphid, bear), modern drugs (insecticides) are used. Affected leaves and shoots are removed.
Of the diseases, black spotting and powdery mildew can threaten. Peach Avalange roses have medium resistance to them. Of all the known methods of combating plant diseases, chemical preparations with a targeted effect have proven themselves best. Chemicals act on the surface of the bushes and exert their effect. You can find the right tools in any gardening stores.
Tea-hybrid beauty conquered florists, landscape designers. Peach Avalange has a great future. Despite the difficulties in care, gardeners should definitely pay attention to this variety - anyone who can grow it will surely earn respect among other flower lovers.
