I think the parent was held back with disease for ages, so hopefully it should speed up now it's been treated. I'll see how far I can train it, hopefully it will stretch up next to the front door!

I'll appreciate it what ever it ends up being, a rose by any other name and all that just helps with what to expect with size and handling.

do you think it might be a climber? (just so I know if I need to put wires on the walls) it would be quite nice if it was for both places where it's planted

double checked on the cutting and that's drooping too

 maybe it's just a droopy rose?

this is the main plant which I took the cutting from

the flower that's on there is drooping, but I think that's more rain water weight than habit

I'll take a picture tomorrow of the plant I took the cutting from, which is a bit bigger, and maybe that will tell if it's a climber? The flowers definitely don't droop, but I guess the growth on the stems of the main plant is quite long so it could be a climber. I wasn't sure if it was just because it's not in a sunny place and against a wall.

Cheers Fluffy Cloud, I think it being in clay helps with the diseases since it seems the clay keeps the ants away, so no aphid farming or trailing fungus spores from one to the next

well after googling Papa Meilland it certainly looks very similar to me, so I'll make a note of it, and hopefully once it's grown out a bit more I'll be able to double check. Thanks for the help pansyface

Also thank you Beaus Mum for the compliment it's definitely my favourite in the garden at the moment. Maybe I'll try and get a few more cuttings for some more flowers and make some money for myself haha

Hello, I have a rose in my parents garden that I'm not sure what it is. Very dark red and a good strong scent.

Cant really say what it's shape is meant to look like since the main plant was neglected somewhat and I took a weird long cutting a couple of years ago and now have finished uni and have moved the cutting and looked after both plants a bit better.

Here's a pic of the cutting for you to have a look at, it had just been raining, sorry :-/



Problem with rose flower

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 17:25

checked on it again just now, the pictures I uploaded before were taken 2 days ago, so I just took a couple now.

 The petals didn't feel crispy or like they were sticking the flower closed, but I suppose the rainy weather a little while ago might have caused problems maybe? I think the mildew might be closer to the mark though on this occasion. If the mildew is on the bud leaves, could it cause the centre of the flower to rot?

Hello, I have a problem with a rose in the garden, not sure what the name of the rose is. The plant as a whole seems healthy, no black spot, planted in quite heavy clay soil, shady border up against a wall. But the flower doesn't look healthy like the rose I took the cutting from. I've attached a couple of pictures for you to see. I do use fungus control spray too. Any clues on what's causing this?
