    Do you mean generally? Can't say I've noticed on any of my roses.

    No. Have you got photos ... what varieties is this occurring in?

    I’m confused ... I don’t know what you’ve noticed ... without knowing the variety or seeing a photo of it flowering in other years I don’t understand what we're expected to deduce from that. I’m sorry 😐

    Any abnormalities you are seeing are probably because of the strange weather this year. Roses had been flowering very early, while the nights were still very cold. It can cause deformed blooms, proliferation, small blooms or otherwise untypical blooms.

    Hot weather will make buds open really quickly. They stay tighter if it's cooler.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
