My rose bush


By alextb


My rose bush doesn’t seem to be able to make its mind up. It flowers, then seems to have stooped flowering and then suddenly I find a few more have opened. It seems to have been doing this a few tikes since I bought it in the Summer.

Oh well, it has nice yellow flowers, so why am I making a fuss?

Which rosebush is it Alex?

Not sure, but it looks a bit like a lollipop shape and has a nice pastel shade of yellow roses. The bush is in a nice lage pot surrounded by winter pansies.

I believe I have a picture in one of my blogs.

Why not take a look, while I see if I can upload it to this blog, to save you searching.

I have just uploaded a pic of it, but it is an older one. To see the picture of the new pot, you will need to check the other blog.

I find roses do that sometimes - they flower in fits and starts. Nice to have flowers on it this time of year.

Some roses are classed as "repeat bloomers" as apposed to "continuous bloomers". The repeat bloomers bloom and then take a little break and then bloom again and have a little break etc. The continuous bloomers produce blooms pretty much continuously all the growing season.
Perhaps your yellow bush is a repeat bloomer.
Are you feeding it Alex? Most roses are quite heavy feeders so that could be a factor too.

I have been feeding it, but I guess it may be a repeat bloomer.

Thanks Gilli, that answers my question.
