Roses come back weaker and smaller every year even with fertilizer and winter cover my knockout and climber died back complety have weak stems and are only 1ft tall. Barely any blooms. Used wire cage with oak leaves and we had a mild winter. Ant ideas on what the problem is?
- Provide a well-drained site with at least six hours of direct sun daily.
- Use an organic mulch to eliminate weeds and conserve moisture.
- Supply one inch of water weekly, from a combination of rainfall and irrigation.
- Maintain adequate soil fertility, but don't fertilize after August 1, to allow plants to harden off properly before winter.
