We recently planted two new roses, a Queen Elizabeth and an Oklahoma, we fed them with commercial rose feed. And all the sudden they're blooming all over the place but my blooms are going limp and falling after about 1-2 days.

My house is in Zone 6 and it's fairly mild, in the 80s and breezy, with quite a bit of rain this year.

That sounds like pretty short-lived bloom. Are they getting watered regularly?

That would be my first thought too.

Our watering is about once or twice a week depending on rain, we've had about two full days of rain every week or more, they are brand newly planted and may just be adjusting to being moved from farm to nursery to our yard.

It still seems odd, to me.

My husband and I don't think they're being eaten, they kinda just bloom for a couple days and then droop and fall off, he thinks it's transplant shock and they need a couple weeks to acclimate.

there is some white spot to deal with from all the rain we've had. But we're working on that.

I had a few Roses that were doing that. And a friend of a friend who lives out west grows marijuana for cancer patients. But he also grows tons of roses. Hes an actual botanist. He told me he uses the same nutrients for his marijuana as his roses. So he sent me a sample pack. And I used it. Our roses have never looked so good. It's called Megacrop. Mix it with water and feed once a week. And during flower I add their Bud Explosion. It works amazing for roses. And its pretty cheap. I got a 21lb bag for 30 bucks. I wont need to buy anymore for years. Max strength is 5 grams per gallon of water. So you can do the math. 400+ grams per pound. All of our Rose blooms last weeks now. Unless it's a short flowering plant of course. But we use it for every thing. Even our weeping willow trees. And they ship it in a plain box. Sp it doesnt look like you're doing something you shouldnt be. Lol. But it does work amazing. I found it was lack of P (phosphorus) causing our blooms to die prematurely.

Audrie, are the stems themselves turning yellow as they go limp, and then turning brown?

If they are, I've had the same thing happen in the middle of the season to my Abraham Darby blooms. Couldn't figure out what was causing it.

Otherwise, for me, some blossoms seem exceptionally short-lived when the weather is warm. Some pinks only last a day or two. The Jubilee Rugosa blooms don't even last out the same day they bloom. I've noticed that my yellow rose blooms last the longest, sometimes a whole week or even two.

Did you applied that fertilizer, just shortly, before the flowers were getting ready & developed enough, to just about prior to opening? If so, you may have applied at a time that shortens the flowers life span & may have inadvertently caused them to shatter , more quickly.

I ordered some Megacrop today. We'll see.
Cheap is right; they charge $7.50 for enough
product for 75 gallons.

Well, it will be interesting to see (smell?) in my garden. I'm in a public park setting, so I wonder what the
park-going public will think. Not that that's an issue to me!

You need to mix it in water before feeding. It's not the kind you sprinkle over the soil. The smell is only bad in its dry form.

OK. I've got one of those plunger sprayers. Takes ten minutes to get it started, but it works eventually.
Too bad, I was looking forward to grossing out the park goers. ;-)

Haha. Those park visitors just may not enjoy it, but where do you get this fertilizer, from ? I've tried Jobe's Organic, before. But this almost sounds as though it is even better, than that. Do you buy it online?
I may just try it out & find that it does even better..I'd like to see how the roses grow, after trying it out. Never heard of it before.

Get it here, on the link below. Amazon is way to expensive compared to them. I've bookmarked it and will get some when I run out of Earth Right stuff.

I just checked this website and the cost is $82+ for 21 Lb bag.
I ordered this 4 days ago on Amazon Prime (free shipping) and paid $34 for 21 Lbs.

Same size bag for me on Amazon Prime is $97. On Greenleaf, a 22.7 Ib bag, with shipping is just under $95. So for me Greenleaf is still cheaper. But I know Amazon likes to charge different prices and I'm glad someone was able to get it cheaper on there. Thumbs up

OMG! Don't I feel "bright".
I just checked my order and you're right. I thought I was buying the 21+ Lb bag and I actually bought the 2500g bag. The price IS $95+ for 21+ Lbs. Glare

Oh Well, I'll see how well it works.
