Questions about former posters moved to Conversations
We ought to use Conversations again. The moderators no doubt moved the post about former active members to the Conversations. I had a hard time finding it, but that is where it is.
More than likely this post should also move to Conversations, but it is also about roses. This past year was very hard on my roses, and the drought plus the freezes made almost all of my roses grow from the ground. Soon I must go around and start cutting the black "stakes", but then the rose will have nothing for support.
I need basal shoots that are strong and healthy. What do you do if anything to cause the brand new shoots? Fertilizer, fish emulsion are two things I am thinking of. Of course plenty of water will do it too.
Do you have any other suggestions?
