I planted a rose in a container 2 years ago, this year it flowered a little now it has got red berries on it instead of roses what's wrong with it.Thanks



It sounds like the seed heads to me. Have you removed the flowers as they died?

Red rose hips are the fruit if the rose and on some varieties are very beautiful. Deadhead each flower as it fades if you don't want the hips.

That will also encourage more flowers, though those with the showiest hips tend to flower only once a year, anyway.
