This year my roses have been fantastic. I seem to have bloom after bloom on all my rose bushes.

My favourite is Deep Secret and the perfume from that is wonderful, it is beside my front door, ( a moving in present from my Mother 15 years ago), and it is fantastic. Everytime some one comes to the hall door or if I open the door the perfume wafts in.

I got a present of a patio rose and I have one I bought in Aldi and they just keep on blooming. My house is full of vases of roses this year, I did nothing different, but they are the best ever.

Any rose expert know if it is the weather or what that made them grow so well.

It's hard to know Maeve. Myself I have been plagued by mildew on my roses due to all the moisture. I may need to thin them out to let them air out a bit I guess. Did you do anything different with your roses this year or perhaps they have just got fully settled in within the garden and decided to reward you.

Hi Cooler,

I did nothing to my roses this year, except dead head frequently. For the past few years I have pruned them back very hard. But isn't that the way with gardening, thing start to bloom wonderfully when you least expect it.

I have fallen in love with my roses all over again.

Almost all roses grow very best 100 % sunshine having damp, well-drained soil that is certainly abundant in natural make any difference. Make sure ones roses reach minimum 6-8 hours of strong sunshine every day; if they get much less lighting, the actual facilities will not full bloom likewise and you will be additional subject to episode coming from unwanted pests and illnesses.
