How to graft a Rose – Step by step

Rose bushes are highly prized for their beauty and scent. It is so versatile that most of the rose bushes we see are not just one common species, but two or even three of them are refined.

This is done to take advantage of the roots and stems of stronger species and the spectacular flowering of other weaker species, or even to obtain roses that cannot be obtained in any other way.

– When to graft a rosebush

Due to the fact that the canes are a very aggressive process for both plants, especially for the refining of buds, and therefore it can not be used at any time of the year to proceed. To maximize the chances of a successful transplant we must find the best time for the plant.

For rose bushes, this usually happens in the summer after flowering. The best time to prune and trim flower buds is about 1 week after the flowers on the stems have faded.

It is important to water the plants abundantly a few days before removing buds, but it is better not to water the plants on the day of refining. The best time of day is morning or sunset.

– Graft rose bushes step by step

  1. The materials to be refined are taken from branches that have already flowered. Thickness varies by species, from the thickness of thumbnails to the width of pencils in the strongest species.
  2. The buds to be refined are removed from this branch: at the ideal moment the buds are slightly separated.
  3. Plants used as bedding are propagated from cuttings between May and July. The feet cannot be tuned until the end of November.
  4. Make a cut horizontally in the bark of the stem, then cut another vertically from the middle of the previous cut. This is how the “T” was created, which is characteristic of this graft.
  5. The canes are cut and joined above the T. The knot must be above the graft.
  6. After approximately 15 days, the lump is opened to loosen the union and allow the graft to grow freely. In temperate climates, the graft may sprout, or dormant through the winter and sprout the following spring.
  7. Cut the rootstock crown as it sprouts. The stem remains on the branch, so all the power of the plant is concentrated in this branch.
