Filled roses - when the flowers are too heavy


The flowers are usually too heavy and kink

Roses are the favorite flowers of many people and there is hardly a garden where you cannot find roses. Some like the normal flowers, others particularly stand out filled roses, These look really gorgeous, but they have one problem: they are very heavy! This means that the plant cannot always carry the flowers and tilts down or even breaks off. Especially when it is raining or strong wind is blowing. Two measures can help here:

  1. Tie up the plants
    It is tied directly to the shoot that carries the flowers, about five centimeters below the flowers. Either on an extra pole, on a fence, an obelisk or a climbing frame.
  2. Add potassium
    Roses should be fertilized regularly. An extra portion of potassium should then be added to this fertilizer. The walls of the plant cells are stabilized.

Alternatively, you can switch to unfilled varieties, but it is only too understandable if you want to keep filled roses - they are simply beautiful!
