hybrid tea rose

Postby inbox282 » Jun 18, 2012 5:27 pm

I am hoping that I can get some help with my roses. They grow fine but the flower never looks like they do online. The flower looks like it over blooms and the petals are wide open and don't last long.

I don't know if this tells you a lot but I am wondering if there is something that I am doing wrong.

You aren't doing anything wrong. Roses really don't last long.

I grew hybrid teas for a lot of years and they rarely look like the pictures you see in the mag's.The blooms do tend to fade pretty quick in the hot weather ... but to grow they need the sun.

You can try picking them but they still only last about a week.
