First of all, although rose cuttings can be propagated nearly any month of the year, the month of July has the advantage of being ideal because it is this month that the flowers have faded and the new growth is mature enough to successfully root. What's more, some rose varieties (that normally root with difficulty), will root easier if the stem is not fully matured and still softer. This is why you can take advantage of this month and you can take cuttings until late in the summer as well.
Native to northeast Asia, plantain lilies (hostas) bloom all summer and are extremely shade-tolerant. Propagated by means of stolons and rhizomes, the hosta plant is herbaceous in habit and grows well in USDA zones 3 - 9. Some hostas have variegated leaves, thus increasing the aesthetic value of a landscape. The flowers are found in white, lavender, and blue shades. Also, the plants are edible by humans.
The first step for Floribunda care is to make sure they are growing in an appropriate area where there is enough sunlight and moisture available for them. Therefore, while planting or re-potting them choose a spot where there is sunlight all day, and will receive shade in the evenings. It is important that these roses get sunlight for at least 6 to 7 hours of the day in order to produce bright and pleasant blooms.
Hybrid tea roses are hardy to grow in zones 4 to 9. When you bring home these plants, one should carefully remove the nursery packing around the roots. Then, place the plants in a bucket of water soaking the roots properly. One should allow the roots to soak up water for about 2 to 6 hours. Then, dig a hole in a planting area that is rich in organic matter, and has loose soil. The hole should be about 18 inches in diameter, so that it is easier to spread the roots. If you live in a warm area, place the bud union at the base of the plant about 1 to 2 inches above the soil level. Those who live in colder climatic regions, should place the bud union 1 to 2 inches below the soil level. This is because the bud union is prone to winter damage, and should be protected during the cold climate.
