I bought 3 bare root roses from reputable source just before 3/4 accident
that put me in rehab for 2 months.
I sent word to OP to tell gardener to plant them. On return home, observed Zero growth!!!
Wondering if miscommunication. I wanted gardener to fertilize ESTABLISHED roses
pruned in January.
Could he have misunderstood and also fertilized bare roots (which is a No-No)
and could that have let to their demise?
Would appreciate input from rose folks.
This is So Cal coastal.
I wasn't there to observe, but seems odd to me. Any parallel
experiences, or possible explanations?
I could have guessed it was So Cal. I hired the neighbor's gardener
one time who appeared to understand what I was telling him. Then when I
went to check on the work, I was missing a grapefruit sapling, and one
of his crew was standing on a block wall trimming the neighbors bushes.
They didn't even understand "stop" -- I had to go over to one and pull
him away from where he was whacking at a rose bush. It was actually
funny to me. But I don't like grapefruit, opposite from the lovely
wife. Turned out the guy was only nodding and smiling and didn't
understand a word. Fortunately the neighbor was also OK with the
trimming. Then once I showed them what I needed done, they did a good
job. Next time I'll be sure to ask him to repeat what he is supposed to
