Hi all, I know there are some superb rose experts on this forum so I hope you can help or tell me where I have gone wrong. Dearest hubby bought me 2 ramblers ( a Rambling Rector and Wedding Days plus a climber (dont know the species) to go over some arches, this was 2 yrs ago. I planted them in Sept 1st yr and trimmed back the Rector as it had a few dead bits. The ramblers flowered last summer but the climber didnt. I have let them put on some growth and not cut them back much (except for the suckers)as I wanted them to cover the arches. There have only been a few flowers on any of them this year, they have been manured and given some blood, fish and bone.
Any clues, we have a shady garden and clay soil.
