@bluefox23 You need to spray it as it’s got black spot. I would cut it back and spray it. Either burn or bag up the leaves as it spreads. Cutting it will boost it up into growing. Plenty of manure or feed. 😊👍🏼
Can you see any buds forming on those woody old stems at the base? I remembered your question whether or not you should prune it. You could cut back those old unproductive stems but perhaps wait another couple of weeks to see if they produce any new stems/foliage. They look pretty dead though so if you cut those back you might get new stems replacing them from thr base 😚😚
#newgrowth #gardenqueen #buxombeauty #rose Just enjoyed time in the garden finding new growth on its way! When should I prune this or is it too late now it’s growing again? #advice Glorious day! 😊 23/02/19 #gardenqueenrose
Just looked back at the pics and it's a new rose (only planted last year). I would not prune it at all this year or the next as newly planted roses take up to 3 years to establish and the top growth feeds the roots. I didn't know that when I first planted a bush rose but the following year I left it unpruned and it had much better blooms and more of them. Instead of pruning, mulch it with organic compost/manure and feed it with slow - release fertiliser.
In the first year, they mostly just establish the roots, then in the second year they start to produce new stems growing from the base and a handful of flowers, and in the third year they really take off. ☺
It could be to do with all that rain we had and then all the heat again? The leaves look healthy so I don’t think it’s fungus. If the inner petals look ok it could be a mild case of Rose Balling https://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/solve-problems/rose-bloom-balling/ 😊
Why is this rose taking so long to open? Is it natural. To me the outside leaves are going to fall off before the middle has opened. It doesn't look like the lovely blooms I've seen by other people!! 🤷♀️😞 #buxombeauty #gardenqueenrose #rose
Is in a container, mulched and am watering it daily or every other day at moment. Maybe need deeper watering less frequent. Will hope it blooms a bit better before it ends up being dead headed!! 😂 @cyndi
