Rose already in flower

Kelly22Kelly22 Posts: 7

Hi, I have a David Austin rose called 'Golden Anniversary' which is already in flower. Is it too early? And will it be okay flowering this early? I am pretty sure it is doing this because I was too scared to prune too much as I didn't want to kill the rose.  I would really appreciate some advice on this.

Thank you

    Don't panic! I have a rose in bloom and so does someone else on the forum. If it wants to bloom, then let it.image

    Don't worry.  It's all about pruning.  Last year one of my climbing roses that grows against a south facing cream wall had it's 1st flower on 26th Feb! I'd pruned it quite early in October (I have a lot to do and not much spare time to do it).  It still flowered all summer.  Deadhead back to 2 leaf axils on the flowering stems and feed after each flush.

    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!  Keep dead-heading and it will keep on blooming for you.

    I'd start a new thread with this Anthony. All the rose experts (that's not me) will have looked at this thread and commented already.
