About a month ago from a garden centre I bought a standard rose Precious Memories . I followed planting instructions , added manure. Unfortunately over past couple of weeks the leaves have drooped and wilted. This morning I have removed the leaves. I did plant patio roses in the same bed and these are going great guns . The standard rose isn't shelter and not a mature plant. Can anyone help me to save the plant.
Normally a sign of too much or too little water. I would think with the weather we've had it needs a good deep watering. Could also be something to do with manure - too fresh?? I have never used it so maybe someone else can help there. Good luck - I love standard roses...
When you plant roses where roses have been it's a good idea to plant first in a cardboard box and then in the bed. This reduces chances of contracting any freezers from previous roses.

Thanks Lynda , I have some roses I am planting where other roses have been. Will follow your advice.
