Hi I'm new

Post by inky on 6th April 2016, 09:06

Hi, We live in the Wide bay area in Qld. It's poor rocky soil but have managed to build it up, should have mentioned it's a new build and have only been here a year. We have a number of roses which were doing well until the grass hoppers came, anyway that's not the problem. About seven months ago we planted a climber Mr Lincoln it has grown many branches some 4 meters long tied back to a trellis. Others have grown way above the fence line. The problem is it's never had one bud on it. It has been well fed and watered and mulched. Any ideas would be welcomed.

Hi Inky,
Welcome to the forum.
A couple of things spring to mind. The buds could be being damaged or removed thus creating blind shoots. A trim back may resolve this. Another thing could be if it is a grafted rose the rose could have reverted to the rootstock. You'll be able to tell if the stems are coming from below the graft. And lastly, does the plant get enough sun? Most roses like at least 6 hours.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Louise.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. It does get plenty of sun, but I will check the graft, thanks.
Inky.

Hi Inky, a couple of things could affect it, How much food have you given it and what sort ?. I am not saying this is the problem, but if what you fed it contained to much Nitrogen, this "maybe" part of the reason why it has not flowered. Some roses take a while to establish before flowering. I am unsure if you know but you can post photo's after seven days, if you could that would help. Where was the rose bought from . Are the leaves on your Mr L big and glossy ?.
