I have several Roses that we moved with us last year when we moved.
The blooms always lasted forever but this year they fall apart right after they open. I don't even get a full day out of them!
Hubs is blaming birds landing on them but we had tons of birds at the other house too so I thought I'd better ask the Rose specialists what's going on with them?

ps. the wild roses and the shrub type ones are fine but the fancy Hybrids are having issues.

Thanks in advance!

Lee Anne, I'm having the same problem this year, and I was blaming it on all the rain. What I have noticed, though, is that it's my new hybrid teas that drop petals quickly. The ones that have been in the ground for a few years seem to hold on better. Maybe it's an adjustment problem?
I'm guessing. I don't know. Maybe something got into the bud and chewed so petals came loose?
Still guessing Confused

We're in a bad drought here. I was thinking not enough rain, although we do water them.
I dunno...it's weird.
Appreciate the reply :)

Hmmm. Water deeply, but less frequently. I mean really really soak them when you water, then let it dry for a few days, see if that helps. Group hug
