I think I need to develop a new flower love. One that at least tries to reciprocate.
I adore roses, especially the old English roses with millions of petals and loads of scent. The colors are beautiful, the form charming, and if a rosebush is happy it just grows and grows and grows.
My poor little rosebush is not happy, and I don’t know what to do to help it.
I am honestly clueless. I thought for awhile the failure to thrive was due to too much water, but that didn’t seem to help either. Poor little thing did bloom, but it was such a sad, dilapidated looking flower.
Maybe roses just aren’t my thing. Maybe they just don’t do well in pots. Maybe it needs a soil amendment or some fertilizer. I don’t know! I don’t remember ever having trouble with roses like this at my mom’s house so I’m really at a loss. I don’t want my rose to die. If anyone has suggestions, please feel free. 😦
