Hello all

i was given a rose cutting which I put in the ground earlier in the year. I was really pleased when it sprouted pretty pink flowers which you can see below


It then developed what I think was black spot and looked awful so I cut it right back getting rid of the leaves that were affected. It has now grown back again with lots of healthier looking leaves but no signs of any blooms. Is this normal?  Should I just leave it to do its thing?

    It looks healthy but it's probably too late in the season for it to flower again this year.  Look forward to next summer image

    Hi Judojub. Its looks quite healthy now. Yes, just leave it alone to do its own thing for now.

    Hi all

    just a little update along with a further question please! So, my rose continues to look well and has even started to sprout a couple more flowers! My question is which kind of rose is it? In the sense that can anybody tell whether it is a patio rose or will it  be one of the bigger varieties and if you do think it is only a small one, is it fine left in the ground or is it better off in a pot ( to make room for other things) image


    Thank you!
