    1. Hello Cathy. It could be that the fertilizer you are using is too high in nitrogen. That will make the bushes grow well and load up with foliage, but will create a situation of few to no blooms. If you have been having
      high temperatures it could also be the roses are not producing buds due to the heat and should get back to the bud making and blooms when the weather cools.

  2. I have 4 to 6 cuttings from four different rose bushes in the Pacific Northwest. Because of my traveling with these cuttings, I had to place all cuttings from one rose bush into one container and did this with all four rose bush cuttings. I followed your directions in starting a new rose bush. In my traveling, I had each of the four container with the rose cuttings in an “green house” environment, but the soil in each container did get disturbed.
    Now for my questions. I was told by an rose expert in Washington that I should leave all the cuttings in the plastic bottles since I already used the rooting hormone gel on all the cuttings. Is this correct? I but holes in the bottom of each of the plastic bottles for drainage. I am keeping the soil moist. I do not have the four container covered to create an green house effect. Should I create a mini green house with wire and cloth or should I purchase larger plastic bottles and use them as tops for mini individual green house? I live on 1.55 acres and have large mountain trees surrounding our house, but we do get sun through the trees. Which way should these rose cuttings be placed… north, south, east or west facing? Should these containers be on grass or can they be on cement? Should I fertilized the cuttings?

    1. Hi Barbara. Perhaps they got a bit of frost bite from a night time cold spell. If you have not had any such cold dips in the temps where you are, then I would suspect that Thrips are at work. About the only way to really get at them is to use a systemic insecticide. They make tiny holes in the buds or base of the buds to suck out the juices and thus cause the buds to die.

  4. Hi Stan: I want to grow hips and have propagated a 20 yard row from progeny from old plants I was forced to dig up to make a sea wall. They’ve been growing, thriving really, for about 3 years and are now thick and bushy and perhaps 4 ft high. They flower nicely, though not prolifically and so there haven’t been many hips. Boohoo. Could that be an age phenomenon and I just haven’t waited long enough? A rich neighbor who can afford a gardener has an old stand that the gardener prunes, significantly, and they are bountiful with hips every year – perhaps the most bountiful plants I’ve ever seen. They are also quite old. Have you got any tips for me on how to up hip production? Thanks, Bill from SE Mass.

  5. Beautiful roses, beautiful pictures!! I came across your site in my “once every few years” search of a rose that grew at my childhood home. The owners mom planted it, who had since passed so she didn’t know. It has since perished so I can’t try to grow any cuttings and yet I still look… So many are so similar but don’t quite match… Someday… That and the peaches that she had, those are my white whales!! I would give my entire plant & garden for those two alone!!

    1. Hello Martina. If you have any photos of that rose or if you can describe it to me, perhaps I can help you with finding out her name and if another is still available.

      1. Hi Stan! I wish I had a photo… It was a tall bush, not too thick, dark foliage with purplish edges, and the the blooms had the same shape as florist roses. They were similar to peace roses, which is what I thought they were, but not so sure. They were base color of bright yellow and pink edges that were nicely blended. As the blossom opened and aged, the ends of the petals turned significantly more dramatically blush/pink. Almost like airbrushed with blush or paint. The outside of the petals always stayed more yellow. Very fragrant but not heavy. Made the most AMAZING rose petal jam!! (Science class project, lol). I’ve obsessed over them for a long time…. Not too obvious is it? Haha. Thanks again, Martina

      2. Thanks for all of this information Martina. The 1987 date rules out many that first came to mind, such as Rio Samba, Perfect Moment and perhaps Gold Medal. I think the rose Peace is still very much in the running though. I have had four of the rose named Peace over the years and the blooms on two of them were far more vibrant that the others for some unknown reason. Other possibilities are; Angel Wings, Summer Fashion, Oriental Dawn, Bright Angel, Circus, Circus Parade, perhaps one named Fascinating, Sheila’s Perfume, an outside chance it could have been Kiss of Fire or maybe Bellevue. I am still thinking it is indeed either Peace or Sheila’s Perfume. It comes down to how much blending there is of the colors and the one of the two top choices of mine that holds the deeper colors would be Sheila’s Perfume. I hope this is helpful to you.

      3. Also, the one labeled Love and Peace is close, but the pink wasn’t as dark… The Tahitian Sunset is very close, too, but mine had more separation between pink and yellow. Also, I know we moved there in ’87 and that bush was well established already.

    1. Hi Steve. I tried to email you but it kept bouncing back at me. Give your rosebushes a treatment of Bayer Tree & Shrub granules and spray the top part with some Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer. Usually one treatment of the granules per growing season is enough, follow up with the spraying as needed to get after the adult beetles.

Another rosebush you should check out is Ebb Tide, she is gorgeous!! Fragrant Plum is also a nice rose of the purpleish color.

      1. I am trying to find out if my knock roses can be cut back now. I live in Louisiana and we didn’t have a real winter last year, so I didn’t cut them back. They are very high but they are blooming so much now.If I cut them back now will it kill them.We are in Nov and the weather is still in the 80’s

      2. You certainly can prune them back but it will sacrifice some more blooms until new growth brings more blooms on. If they are quite tall, you could prune back by a foot to 18 inches. They will grow back from there and this should not kill them. I would water them with some water that has a product called Super Thrive mixed into the water before pruning them back. Then after pruning them, water them with the Super Thrive and water mix the next 4 to 5 times they need watering. If you cannot find Super Thrive locally, there are good places to buy it on Ebay.

        Thanks for your Question.
