Rosehip - the closest relative of the rose.Terry dog-roses are called: Rose Park.As with real roses, these Rosehip Seed box dry, jam it does not cook.But many species of wild roses have decorative fleshy shell instead of boll, here it's just a vysokovitaminnym product, and in the fruit of wild rose any vitamins enough.But, of course, the fruit of wild roses of vitamin disproportionately (as brew rose hip).The fruits of this vitamin is easily distinguished from wild rose.wild fruits, or any other wild rose on sepals, which remain on the fruit.Do vitamin varieties they are directed forward, and in wild-type or decorative, they folded back (as it lies on the berries).Breeding of wild rose engaged even Michurin, and basically it was his class and travel across our garden plot.At a time when interest in the briar reappeared, many nurseries have been cultivated planting material.

plant quite unpretentious, if catch hold of the land, then it does not destroy any stump.Certainly it appears to chose the plac

e again.But in general, as well as roses, rose prefers greasy black clay or loam.You can prepare for him a mixture of rotted compost and simple clay in a ratio of 1: 1.But I must say that it will continue to grow even in the sand if it to add at least a little bit of organic matter.

hardiness and drought-resistant, richly and beautifully flowering fragrant flowers.Ornamental species, especially terry form, have a long flowering (practically they bloom all summer with a small break in the middle of summer).Vitamin dog-roses bloom briefly and amicably.Gradually expanding, form a whole thicket, impenetrable and prickly, so they can be used to create hedges.But aging stems about every 3-4 years should be cut to the ground, otherwise your fence gradually turn into dead wood.

best Rosehip grows and bears fruit in full sun, but it is reconciled with the penumbra, and even shadow.However, in the shadows, he almost did not bloom.

Planting rose hips, as well as all shrubs, should be at the end of summer and beginning of autumn, but in practice they are quite easy to take root in the spring and early summer, too.After landing requires regular watering until the plant does not take root.

Fertilizing need for an abundant harvest, and rose, planted as a fence, and can not be fed and watered.Most suitable for fertilizing fresh manure (as for roses), diluted with water 1:10 or bird droppings, diluted with water 1: 20. Fertilizing should be given at the beginning of the summer.If there is no manure, then slipped under a bush along the perimeter of its crown any organic material, including nepereprevshuyu, and, at least, do not remove it from under the autumn leaves discarded, then he will feed himself.

Rosehip is easily propagated by cuttings or root suckers.You can propagate it by seeds, which are best sown in the ground immediately after collecting berries.

collection and drying. Collect ripe, but not overripe fruit with a dense texture and color, typical of this type.Frostbitten raw materials should not be collected because the thaw following the freezing entail large losses of ascorbic acid and other vitamins.Cleaning is done carefully (in canvas gloves), avoiding damage to the branches.When harvesting the fruit to retain the sepals.It is dried in the dryer, furnace or oven at a temperature of 80-100 °, and good ventilation.Fruits are spread in a thin layer.Fast drying rose hips promotes better preservation of vitamin C. It is proved, for example, drying at 40 to 50 ° leads to a drop of vitamin C fruits of almost 50%, while only 17-20% are at a temperature of 80-90 ° loss.After drying, the fruit is ground to a sieve to remove the sepals.

Medicinal raw .Rose hips - Fructus Rosae.In accordance with the requirements of Art.GF 293 X and GOST 1994-76 dried whole fruit should be characterized by the following indicators: the dimensions - length 0,7-3 cm in diameter - 0,6-1,7 cm;color - from orange-red to brownish-red.On the individual fruits are stored sepals directed upwards and sometimes at the top of his closed (for the fruit of dog rose sepals are bent down, they usually fall off before ripening.).The walls of the dried fruits of hard, brittle, shiny outer surface (less matte), more or less wrinkled.Inside the fruit richly lined with long, very stiff bristly hairs.Nuts are small, light-yellow, sometimes slightly brownish.The smell is not, taste sour, sweet, slightly astringent.
