Hello all,

I've come inside from an almighty shower of rain - at least the water barrels are being filled from the sky!

I have a question about these rose bushes - they have been in the ground for at least 6 years if not much longer but they only throw up a few stems and the flowers are all at the top. Every year there are less flowers. Clearly I am doing something wrong. I was expecting them to be bushes by now as elsewhere in the garden. So my question is what am I doing wrong and what can I do about it?

I appreciate any suggestions and sorry if this question has been asked before - I find it hard to distinguish one type of rose from another when reading about roses

This might be caused by lack of Phosphates or Potash or too much root competition from nearby trees/ you may be feeding them with too much Nitrogen or overwatering, Avoid digging the ground where the roots of the roses are present.

I do hope you manage to sort out the problem because I am sure they would all look beautiful. Sometimes it is just a case of overwateríng, a lot of people seem to have this problem because they don't know if they are giving too little or too much water. Let us know how things go Smile
