Why would a rose bush only bloom once a year or maybe it bloomed for a few weeks and stops.
I swore it did the same thing last year. Is that possible?
Its my mother inlaws plant I know she wont know any info on it. Iv ask before.
It dont look like a small bush it looks more like long stem roses i could cut from it.
It started out beautiful I started watering it a little and I didnt pay much more attention than that . Threw few banna peels on it one day. Thats it. Then it just stopped blooming when it started out with literary dozens of beautiful roses on it.
My mother in law told me last year it had stopped blooming on her the year before.
Then I thought last year it started with some blooms then just stopped but I cant swear on that time because I wasn't here everyday at that time.
This year it surly did start blooming and quit. Why would a rose do that anyways? I dont see an issue from few feet away. I didnt see bugs but I could take a closer look for them.
If anyone has any ideas I'd like some idea of wtheck is going on. Lol

There are many types of roses that are "once bloomers". They put on a spectacular display each spring/early summer, then rest up until next year.

Sometimes roses can seem a little perverse. But if you show them a little kindness and patience they can sometimes steal your heart away. Be careful.
When you dance with nature, try not to step on her toes.
