Ok thanks for your advice. I feel better knowings its not drastic.
Is it usual to have a season of mini buds, last year my roses have larger blooms?

Thanks.

What i don't understand is why there was no pink shading when i brought it.
I see what you mean though, after pink the petals go brown but is it because its the first year? I mean if i dead head these, i will have no roses left.
I love my roses i find this frustrating.

Hi friends, i brought a beautiful pure white ice berg rose bush. It was great until we had that bit of a drought for a few weeks. The outer petals have heavey shades of pink on them, its spoiling them, also i seem to be losing leaves, they go yellow then drop off. Seems i have been having trouble with my blooms being way to small & leaves falling off, my other new roses. My old roses are fine. I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Thanks..

To get to the "Forum" button, I have to fight " The Wanted" ad. I am tired of it now.

Should I grow them in a tray and transplant, or sow in position?

Alternatively, is it possible to buy field poppy plants? I haven't seen any for sale and I suspect readers will say they are so easy to grow, but I've sown several packets of seed and not a single seed germinated. Is there an idiots guide or failproof system?

 

I have brought some from my local nursery.  Potted, in flower, ready for transplanting in my garden. They look fantastic...

They need light to germinate. Don't cover them, just sprinkle on top.  There is currently a field full next to the M1 just after J 26 northbound. I didn't get a pic- I was doing 70mph at the time.

Too funny.   Nothing surprises me when it comes down to those lil critters. As for my Hosta, this is the second year & I have not had anything nibble at it. But its in a pot, on a slab, on the summer house porch, one can never be too careful.
