climbing rose
Posted by Ching Soong from Taiwan on 2001-04-10 00:35:41

Roses are not for Taiwan, but I just love it and finally I found a kind of climbing rose called "TonHung" ( forgive my spelling). It is dark red with good smell.
When she eats well and gets enough sunshine it will have 25 flowers (many years ago.)
What should I do to get more flowers?
It has enough ferterlizer.
Please forgive me about my broken English.

    Hello from the other side of the world!
    Pruning your rose will help it produce
    more blossoms. You'll find step by step
    instructions for pruning at the link

      Thanks for the information. I am here like outter space in terms of rose growing. No body here have space for roses. I am lucky, I have a space on top of my apartment to grow some flowers. But not many people to share the pleasuer with about flowering and no way to find out the problems what I am facing. So I dicided to go surf the web. I found a lot of useful informations.
      In the article under. what is "sommer oil" is it any kind of lotion to make it stiky so the liquerd will stay on the surface of the plant?
      Make your own powdery mildew spray by combining 3 teaspoons baking soda with 2 tablespoons highly refined summer oil and 1 gallon of water. Spray every 10 days to two weeks.
      Thanks for the help.

        Hello Ching Soong,

        I'm so glad you have the space to grow your rose, and that you found us on the Web.

        Summer oil does exactly what you say -- it helps the liquid stick to the plant. It is a very light petroleum oil. Here's a link that may help explain it better:

        http://www.biconet.com/botanicals/ashdso.html

        You can use a few drops of liquid dish soap instead of summer oil. Just test the spray on a few leaves before spraying your whole rose to make sure the mixture doesn't harm the leaves.

        Best of luck with your rose! Let us know how she blooms! Ber
