Why does my scented rose not have any scent
I’ve just bought climbing rose “Bathsheba” . It wasn’t in flower when I got it, but I’d researched it and got it for how it looked. Also scent was important. The first bud has opened and it’s just as lovely as in the pictures I’ve seen. But where’s the perfume that was promised. There’s no smell whatsoever not even a hint. No matter the time of day I’ve sniffed it. Very disappointed as beautiful though it is, it was said to have a fairly strong perfume.
