New rose growth on Old Garden Roses?
I am curious as to how long it takes a rose like Zephirine Drouhin to form buds once the process has begun? My ZD has dozens of red shoots that look like the growth that forms buds and it has been doing this for awhile, but not many buds yet. On my hybrid teas and floribundas when I start seeing that growth I know there will soon be a bud. Is the growth I'm seeing going to result in blooms or are these just blind shoots?
