Easy Does It
Has anyone noticed this rose being a slow grower? This is its 3rd year in my garden, and it's still no more than 18" tall. To be fair, the first year it spent the summer in its original pot underwatered all summer, then planted in October. But Earth Song was treated the same way, and it's enormous - 5 feet tall and at least 3 feet wide.
However, despite its small stature, it's blooming like crazy! The canes are so thin, the blooms make them bend down to or almost to the ground.
Anyone have any secrets to giving a slow grower a boost?
