This rose plant was looking so peeky last year. It hardly made any blooms at all, and none of a good quality. Not compared to the first year I had it (2008) when it carried oodles of beautiful roses on long, thick stems.
And this year, It started looking like it wasn’t going to make it. Downright sad, in fact.
So I transplanted it into a larger pot, and (more importantly) Culterra’s rose-planting mix.
It seems to be back on track now.
For the October flush, it made 7 very presentable roses.
It is now busy with its second flush for the season and is looking quite lovely, with eleven buds. I’m so glad, as it’s one of my favourites. (Aw, who am I kidding? They’re all my favourites! )
