    Help needed with 2 Downtown Abbey roses

     Hello..I'm new here, and hope that someone will have some answers for me, so thanks in advance!

     I have two Downtown Abbey is fairly full and the other is tall and thin.  Both are not doing as well as I would expect.  Both roses have very thin canes, and I'm wondering if this is typical of the variety?  Neither have produced many leaves this year...but both have given 2 roses each.  Each rose was on a very spindly stem, and all 4 blooms were very small, faded quickly and are ready to drop their petals after about a week.

    I have fertilized them with Fox Farms Grow Big....tho I'm not seeing much in the way of results.

     I wonder if I'm doing something wrong, or perhaps I have two roses that just aren't very good specimens, and that perhaps I should throw in the towel on them....tho, I hate to even contemplate that.

    Any suggestions/thoughts would be much appreciated.  Thanks again.
