    Hi all

    This is my first post on here and I wonder if you could help. I am a relatively new gardener and have never grown roses before. I planted a Lady of Shallot climbing rose about a year ago and it did well. This year it's really shot up and looked great. Small amount of black spot which I removed. It has loads of buds on it and 2 flowers appeared last week which were beautiful. However after a few days both of them have become very droopy and lifeless. The stems and leaves of the plant look fine. What am I doing wrong? Any tips on how to prevent this happening to the other 30 buds I have?

    Many thanks

    Stef

      Dehydration can cause blooms to droop. Roses need to stay hydrated, so water them thoroughly two to four times a week. Keep the soil moist but not soggy, as overwatering also causes roses to droop.
