General questions on Roses
We've had a cooler Summer after a horrid Winter. I am thankful my bushes came back at all. I didn't lose any. One is very small & slow growing, but has a couple buds. It is 65 degrees and raining....again. I know we need the rain, but isn't it true that roses pretty much hate very hot weather (high 80s and above), don't like colder (50s and lower), but like 60s & 70s & low to mid 80s? We seem to have a ton of buds, but they seem to be taking forever...did I say forever to open. Some of the bushes seem not as plump. How can I say this.....a little bit taller & thinner or spindlier due to some dieback, but yet they all have a ton of buds just waiting to open. I don't know if they are so slow because our temps seem to be creeping down into the 50s at night and overnight.... Thanks.
