Thank you Obelixx, yes I have fed mine with Uncle Tom's rose tonic early in the season and with seaweed fertiliser solution a few times. All other roses are doing fine so I really don't know why this particular one doesn't flower.

Hi everyone

I planted a Ferdinand Pichard in the late autumn of 2015, so it's into its 2nd summer. It gave me two flowers last summer and then developed a lot of tall shoots for the rest of the year which I had to cut back. 

This summer, there were more flowers (probably about 20) in June but once they were deadheaded, it produced a lot of growth but no more flowers. I checked the tip of the shoots but cannot see any buds on them. It is now over 6ft tall. It is in a mostly sunny position and the other roses in the same bed are doing well.

Would someone know whether this particular variety is prone to blindness and what I should do to make it flower? My garden is only very small and I cannot afford to keep something that does not flower.

Many thanks!

Hello everyone!

Please can some one tell me what this is? They were in full bloom about a month or so ago in neighbours' front gardens and I'd like some for my border.

Many thanks for your help!

Which geranium?

The flowers are pale pink and the leaves are soft green, very slightly felty, but not glossy.

Is it meant to smell nice? I've decided I don't like the smell. It looks like it could either be Ingwerson or Biokovo. Thank you.

Hi all

Just been out to smell the leaves - it does smell, a bit unpleasant to me though.

Hi everyone

Please can you tell me the name of this geranium? I think I bought it from a plant stall in the market last year, so it just said  geranium. Thank you in advance for your help.
