I've planted three bush roses Casanova I pruned them while they were in their pots about a month back BUT none of them have flower buds .is their any fertilizer I can use to promote budding?. I gave them FBB when i put them in and mulched with horse manure compost.
Some roses have been slow this year, especially late pruned roses. I wouldn't worry too much just yet, they're establishing so be patient. Keep them well watered for now, roses take a year to really get going and prune early next year, February I find is best and feed at the same time.
Patience Primrose I wouldn't be expecting flower buds quite yet
Thanks Dave& Dove I'll just keep an eye on them always was in a hurry
David Austin does a great rose fertilizer which I always use about twice a year.
no reason, just cut it where the next leaf is & it will start growing again. If you have put rose food on you could use a foliage feed like a high potash.
