Preparing for landing
Rose seedlings are recommended to be purchased in specialized places. Before the seedling is planted, it must be placed in water for exactly one day. Following this, the shoot is cut so that the length of the material is 30 centimeters. Before planting, the roots of the seedling are protected from decay by sprinkling with ash.

Shoots at the age of a year are shortened by a third, and at two years - by three or four buds.
