Why won't they bloom?
I don't understand it. I have two Jacobs Coat's and one Jacob's Robe, out of the three only one climber is blooming (Its the J. Coat and they are so gorgeous!). Meanwhile the other two, 1 Jacob's Robe and the other Jacob's Coat, both have small buds small that show no signs of opening. The one blooming climber has big plump buds and full lush foliage while the other two are thin by comparison.
Does the size of the bud make a difference? I treat all three climbers exactly the same.
Why won't the other two climbers bloom? The buds are not brown so its not Rose midge (at least I don't believe so). Is there anything i can do to help them along outside of yelling at them?
