  • Re: Flowers turn brown before opening

    Good luck with that, sir.  Go ahead and deadhead, too.  That trimming will promote new growth & possibly blooms!   Brandon

  • Re: Flowers turn brown before opening

    Hey, Mike! Yeah, the rain may have something to do with that. A certain number of antiques and English roses have the nasty habit of "balling," which is where the rain/moisture gets on the blooms and reduces them to brown yuck.  The bad news is that there's not a whole lot you can do about it, except dead-heading them when that ...

  • Re: Flowers turn brown before opening

    Hey, Mike.  Yeah the rain could have something to do with it, especially with the old, cabbage-style roses (certain antiques and English roses sometimes do this).  Have they been in the ground long?  I've found the older a rose is in its establishment, the better it tends to do (exception being a number of Hybrid teas and ...

  • Re: Missing Flowers!

    Fran1973!  Have you started feeding yet?  How's your soil/drainage?  Have you tried Epsom salts? What zone/state are you? Make sure you giving it enough sun (6 hours minimum), water (must drain well), and insect/disease control.... Get back to me on this and we'll nip this in the bud!

  • Re: blue lady rose not doing well

    Well, (deep subject for a shallow mind) You've got enough sun...  What zone are you in?  Where are you?  What's your soil like?  How's the watering/feeding schedule? Have you tried Epsom salts?  How's the drainage? You've opened yourself up to plenty of questions....

  • Re: Jacobs Coat Rose Bush

    Though it is a gorgeous rose, it is not an antique.  Doesn't have the resilence of even Peggy Martin or Climbing Pinkie.  Might want to look into Jaune Desprez.

  • Re: JFK Rose

    Carol, Lovely rose, but NOT AN ENGLISH!  That's a hybrid tea! I'm down here in zone 8, and I cannot begin to tell you the problems one would have with JFK.  It's the Edgar Winter of the rose world!  You may be experiencing thrips.  A good systemic insecticide is good for that, or beneficial insects (earwigs or ...

  • Re: Shade tolerant David Austin roses?

      Coco, I've found that too many roses need too much sun for that. BUT, I have an idea!  There is one particular rose that would do there... Hopefully the sun you get is more toward the morningside. Check out Lenten or Christmas Rose (Helleborus orientalus).  they are evergreen up to zone 4, and bloom somewhere between January ...
