Newly planted #MrLincoln standard rose. First flower. I have heard that I should be snipping off all the buds on my four recently planted standard roses so that all the growth goes into establishing the roots. Comments welcome. I am a newbie to gardening so just learning about such things. @janmartin @deekay @brightcolours @errolly @sue1953 @carol13450 @susieg @plants #misterlincoln
I'm sorry Bronwyn, I don't know enough about Roses to help you. When I have planted container roses before, I have not done this...with no worries. Bare rooted roses might be different??? Good luck. 😊👍🏻
Yes @carol14350. Good point. I live in a cold climate but we still have hot summers. It would probably be better to try to move them a bit further from the wall now - rather than later. Unless I painted a dark figure behind each rose bush! A silhouette.
I do plan to mulch soon. I'll be hooking up a trailer and going to a big mulch pile by the side of the road about 5 kms away. Plan to mulch everything once I have completed all my weeding. @brightcolours
