LADY EMMA HAMILTON STANDARD ROSE

Posted: 07/07/2013 at 18:11

I planted this new rose in December - it seems healthy enough and has produced several blooms, but they are drooping.  Does anyone know if this is normal for the variety or should I be taking action?  I'm making sure it gets well fed and watered.  Your advice would be appreciated, thank you.

Thank you again, Lyon Greene. Have loads of Growmore so will include some with the compost - as far as moving the container is concerned, know a man with a sack truck!

I appreciate your help with my first attempt at growing these elegant flowers.

Lyon Greene - thank you so much for your reply and for the photos; I'll go ahead with the planting, do you recommend feed of any sort to be added to the compost? The pot will be placed in full sun during the growing season and can be moved under cover during the colder months (don't have a greenhouse but have shed/garage)?

Thanks once again.

I've been given 3 bulbs and would iike to grow them in a pot 16in dia.- will the pot take all three?  I have no instructions on planting depth/distance apart.  Can I leave them in the pot from year to year?   Your advice, please

Many thanks

Verdun - thanks for your reply.   The tree looks pretty healthy at the moment, I'll take your advice and remove any dead shoots to maintain the shape.

Thanks again.

BARE ROOT ROSES

Pots and compost ready for the roses - thank you all once again .

Rose lady, thank you  - the roses were chosen for specific places in the garden so they'll be planted out when the time comes.  If I'm successful with these two then perhaps I'll try more........

Even with my limited knowledge, I thought keeping them in water was strange advice which is why I asked the experts!   I do have some large flowerpots both plastic and clay which would accommodate these roses and will visit the garden centre for some suitable compost.  They can live in a sheltered spot at the rear of the garage until I can get them planted.

Thank you all very much.

BARE ROOT ROSES

I have two bare root roses -  one standard, one climber, delivered a couple of days ago.  Due to weather/ground conditions I'm unable to plant them; I'm told that if planting has to be delayed until the Spring I can leave the trees in a tub of water in a frost free environment - could you confirm this is so?  Also any further advice on keeping them 'safe' would be welcome.   I have little knowledge of growing or caring for roses.

Thank you.

VIBURNUM TINUS 'EVE PRICE'

Chris7  - thank you.  I used Provado following advice from this forum on how to treat an ailing pyracantha and it worked well - so let's hope for similar results with the viburnum.

Thanks again.

Thank you all for your replies - the viburnum was planted earlier this year and has grown really well and looks good in its pot -  I'll remove the damaged leaves, keep a close eye on things and treat in Spring,   May I ask again what I should use to treat it?

Thanks
