Apply the water directly to the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to fungal diseases. During the peak summer months or in hot climates, you may need to water twice weekly. Provide about 1-2 gallons of water for each plant during each watering session to ensure the root zone is thoroughly moistened.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Times Rose, or 'Korpeahn', begins its life cycle with seed germination, where the seeds require a period of stratification to break dormancy before sprouting. The seedlings then establish themselves, developing a root system and foliage through the vegetative growth stage. As the plant matures, it enters the reproductive stage, characterized by the development of buds that bloom into the characteristic fragrant flowers. After pollination, often by insects, the flowers develop into fruit, known as hips, which contain seeds for the next generation. The rose plant will continue to grow and produce flowers annually, going through a dormant period in colder climates during winter months. Pruning is a crucial management practice that stimulates new growth and flower production in subsequent seasons.

    • Propogation time

      Early spring

    • Propogation: The best time to propagate the Rosa 'The Times Rose' is in late winter or early spring when the plant is just coming out of dormancy and before it has started its active growth phase. The most popular method for propagating this type of rose is through softwood cuttings. This involves taking a cutting from the tip of a healthy, new season's growth that is about 6 to 8 inches long. The leaves on the lower half of the cutting should be removed, and the cut end dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root development. The cutting is then planted in a mixture of half perlite and half peat moss to provide a well-draining growing medium. It should be kept in a warm place with indirect light and high humidity, often achieved by covering the cutting with a plastic bag or dome to retain moisture. Roots typically develop within four to eight weeks, after which the new rose plantlet can be gradually acclimatized to less humid conditions before being planted in the garden.
