hi all,

i ve got a 5 maybe6 yrs old rose tree,floribunda,that i ve transplanted i think it was towards the end of april,i ve put a bit of coffee,abit a banana peel and a bit(little bit ) a garlic salt in the hole with it.then it started to grow some thorns,big thorns and the wood became kinda red(abecame darker that why i call it red.at first i thought it was becuz it started waking up and i was all happy thinking at least it did not dye on me.well i can t see any buds on it i don t think it s even THINKING of buding [Big Grin] [Wink] [Eek!] . got to say that it s been maybe 2 oh, maybe 3 weeks.since we ve had good hot (average hot most of the time) weather.so maybe i should give it a little more time and not desesparate...what do you think...any tips and help would be appreciated. [flower]

Hey Francine!

I planted about 7 rose bushes this year, hybrid teas, floribunda, and climbers, all 2 year old bushes. Since you transplatned yours, I'm thinking it may act the same as mine. A lot of them had the red wood like you described, and one climber I have is growing like crazy, but is showing no signs of buds whatsoever. I looked it up, because I wondered if I planted it in the wrong spot, or something, and I found that some bushes will take until the 2nd year after planting to bloom after roots have been established. Don't give up on it - keep loving it up and I'll bet next year you'll have beautiful blooms [Wink]

The first thing I really wanted was a rose garden. I guess it reminds me of home, growing up. My mom always had this one huge pink long stemmed rosebush that smelled so nice...and I remember her always trying to get my dad to cut it down, explaining that you had to cut it to make it bloom more, but he would get mad, saying he didnt want to kill it LOL I think that's the most my parents ever 'argued' about anything. But anyway, I'll come back from memory lane LOL

I don't think suckers will grow that far from the main plant (your neighbors roses), but you could ask for a branch, stick it in the ground and cover it with a glass jar (or upside down soda bottle with top cut off) keep it watered, and try to root it. Just a thought! [Wink]

hi all, I know it's been a while since I posted last. Been crazy around here. I was wondering if anyone can tell me about cross breeding roses. I have 4 plants now. I have red,yellow,white and and orange colored one. My red and yellow are cross breeding, it looks nice but I dont want my white and red to cross breed. Not yet anyway. Any help would be nice.
Thanks [wayey] [flower]
