On Climbing Rose
QUESTION: I planted Dublin Bay climbers last year,they bloomed in abundance,right through to June.
This year, there are very few blooms showing,and the leaves look a bit pale.
My wife loved roses,and I am trying very hard to make my new home look nice.
As you might have gathered, Iam not a gardener.
I would appreciate very much any help with this problem.
Kind Regards. Maurie.
ANSWER: Hi Maurie! I afraid I don't know what ail your roses.
The Dublin Bay climber was voted the best climbing rose for New Zealand.
I recommend, you go to your local nursery, or where you bought the roses, and tell them your troubles.
Are you feeding your roses, and watering on a regular basis?
What kind of pruning, if any, did you do?
If you cut down the flowering canes, you won't have many blooms this season.
