The aim of this paper is to present a technology for the cultivation of organic edible roses. The basic principle followed is the creation of an organic production ecosystem considering the natural and anthropogenic factors. To increase the soil biologic activity and for soil disinfection and disinsection, three ameliorative species: Sinapis alba L., Phacelia tanacetifolia L. and Tagetes patula L. were used before and after planting. Microbiological and agrochemical analyses were made to monitor the soil activity and the influence on the rose plants. On the row, the soil was mulched with wood chips and wool and for irrigation, a drip systems was used. The rose climbing plants were supported by wire trellis. For plant protection, a strategy to alternate copper and sulfur based products with alternative ones like sodium bicarbonate, pepper, garlic and propolis tincture and other products based on plant and animal extracts (Mimosa sp., chitosan) was followed. Different bio-stimulators and caw milk were used to increase the plant immunity system. The cultivation technology of organic roses can be implemented on large scale farms with good economical results.
