Climbing Rose 'Breath of Life'

Climbing Rose 'Breath of Life' (Rosea)

new in last winter... this is one of 2 flowers it has produced this year... I must say a bit disapointing.... but 'Compassion' and 'High Hopes' have also been very dissapointing too... i think due to lack of feeding... i have struggled for time this year... i must get round to giving them all a good sort out...

Bonemeal in April round the roots, hoe in, then a spoonful of phostrogen feed mixed with a can of water every few weeks until June. Cut flowers off when finished flowering to a leaf joint. I sometimes give mine the tea left over from the teapot and crushed eggshells.
