Bare Root Rose - No Growth?

Posted: 13/05/2013 at 12:11

Hi i have had that problem to, although i planted mine way back late september. A few weeks ago with no sign of growth I added some blood, fish and bone plant food around the plant and gently mixed it in to the soil. Nervously waited, and bingo last week a bud has appeared and it appears to be growing well, even with the cold winds of Northumberland at the mo!!


Good luck

Due to the weather being behind ive got my main crop of potatoes (Cara) Chitting on the windowsill and by the "Moon" forecast they say to plant these crops the moon calender is between April 25th to 2nd of May, im going to give it a try, just hope im not planting the tatties to late? (First time for main crop potatoes)

Hi Guys, after reading a blog by Lila Das Gupta about gardening by phases of the moon.... seems to be an interesting theory, and just wondered if anyone from the forum had tried it themselves??

Hi CJ7, is a great website, selling organic vegetables(plants), great service, reasonably priced and are delivered very neatly in a cute box where the plants are nestled in a bed of straw!!

hi you must take a little cut off the tuber to allow more roots to grow from there, put the cuttings around the edge of a pot withenriched compost , keep moist and once the roots appear from the pot, pot on to a bigger sized pot!
