Default Poor roses this year

Residing in the low ground of North Staffordshire i have a variety of
roses, usually they give a good show, but not this year. The buds are
meagre, then they do not open well. Is it my bad lucj]k or is it more
general?

No problem here in Berkshire. I have an unusually good show of blooms.

They have been excellent here in south Hampshire, and very early, too.
We've already had three flowers on "Deep Secret", and there are another
15 buds waiting to open.

Considering it a good year for roses here in N.Surrey. Maybe they need
a good handfull of manure or Growmore around the roots.

All my roses are old english type both climbers and bush. Here in the North
of Scotland they are just coming into full bloom and giving a magnificient
display, best for years.

Sorry to say this is probably the best year we have ever had for roses!
we grow mostly rambler types.

My son and DIL have the most magnificent rose display. Amazing really as
they do nothing in the garden other than occasionally cut the grass!

Sorry! Maybe it's a north/south thing. I've just seen a reply from Jim
S. who's further north than you.
