I have fairy roses planted (2) in my garden that used to be in pots. The first couple of years they did well - but now they don't produce many blooms and the foliage is going wild. (I cut these back before I took the picture). A local nursery recommended a fertilizer that feeds the plant for more blooms and less foliage. I've used that 2 years now and it hasn't made a difference. I'm wondering if fairy roses like to be root bound in a pot? When should we give up on roses? I have 2 other rose bushes that I'm ready to axe - but the fairy roses were a gift from my son - so they have special meaning for me! Any suggestions?
