Hello Community members,

Recently i got a new Iceburg roses(30cms) which had lot of roses on it ,planted in my new backyard..after couple of days we noticed the roses are no more blooming and looks like in few days they will shed their petals.
The only thing we did is removed the roses plant from the pot and planted in our backyard and laid some Cow manure on top of it.

Many thanks for your feedback as it will be much appreciated as we are new in gardening and first time planting something.

Was it fresh or aged cow manure?

Your plant looks a little shocky, which it could be from just transplanting it. Is it getting full sun? Has it been warm where you are? All of that could have put it into shock.

I agree that the issue may just be transplant shock.

Often, nurseries really push roses to produce a big flush of bloom, for sale.

I found that, if that's been done, it may take them quite a while to recover from that, and begin to bloom normally. (One reason I never buy roses that way, now.)

It's probably just transplant shock. It'll bounce back. It's a great tough rose. Still, it will take a good year or 2 for it to really settle in and get comfy before she struts her stuff. She will survive though and will "perform" eventually. Climbers take a while to establish themselves. The first few bloom cycles are usually not like anything you see in the magazines and online, but it's not because you're doing anything wrong, it's because they need to establish themselves first. Some take longer than others. My iceberg took 2 years before it put out a lot of blooms.
After all, tomorrow is another day!

My Climbing Iceberg would take a break -with few blooms- now and then but, specially in the middle of the hot Texas Summer. Once temps moderated at the start of autumn, it restarted and produced a nice big flush of blooms again.

Increase the potash.Decrease the nitrogen level, this might help.
