This is 'Royal William'......planted bare rooted last November.

Bev - I'm really pleased you're enjoying this thread and finding likeminded people who share your passion and are here for you if you need help.

Confetti from Rose petals

Sisters wedding on Saturday??? Oh dear, OL....the petals should have been collected a week ago, placed on a tray & placed in the airing cupboard to dry....then as Dove says they would keep for a long time.

It's not too late if you can quicken the drying-up bit.

Totally agree David - meant to say that - breakfast distracted me 

....sorite, Dove  not usually many gaps in your advice  and further to my own advice, perhaps a liquid feed such as liquid seaweed would be more helpful.

I agree with Dove, cept I think your rose needs something more quick acting than soil/manure.

If you decide on some action other than Dove's excellent idea, try a rose feed such as Wilkinson's dry 'Rose Food'.
