Why some roses doing well while others aren't?

Post by Tory » Sun, 22 Jun 1997 04:00:00



I bought four roses this spring from Costco. I got the best I could,
planted them in a row with two on either side of a carpet rose. I'm sorry,
I can't remember the name of the roses right now. On the south side (about
5 feet from the ones on the north) the roses are doing great...big blooms
just beautiful. The ones on the north side are small, have very small
buds, less leaves and just aren't doing as well. Any ideas why? I've given
them rose food every six weeks.

What is the best thing to use to espalier a Joseph's Coat against a garage
wall. I love this rose. I got it from Kmart, of all places, and am just in
love with it's small colorful blooms!

Thanks!

How much sun do the roses get? If the big ones get way more sun then
that could be your problem. What's the soil like?
