Thank you, I did prune in Spring and also dead head back to a leaf joint. The main stems on the rose look what I can only describe as old, very little now growth from them. I will try to get a photo and post it.

Thank you, I will definitely put some new compost around the rose. I will manure it next Spring and give it a light prune, although I did prune it in Spring this year.

I have had a half standard rose for four years, I think its called either Golden Showers or Golden Wedding, despite all my care, feeding and spraying,  it constantly has black spot and rust it is not doing very well, in fact it looks very poorly. It has very few flowers throughout the season and they do not last more than a few days when opened, I am wondering whether to prune it quite hard. Has anyone any suggestions

Thanks for your post other gardeners on this forum have said the same thing, I may just leave them where they are.

Thanks I will have to think about that, if I moved the whole clump to a different position would that be better than dividing them.

Thanks for your reply, these peonies are about 12 years old, will I lose them if I split them in this winter.

My clematis has not flowered this year, I think it has ants in the pot as there is a lot of dust around the pot on the patio, can I use ant killer, can I repost it. My half standard rose has only had one flower on so far and is only just starting to put on new growth, I gave it Top Rose in Spring and have just stranded to feed it again. I pruned it early winter last year was this too early.
