This is the second summer since I planted Rose 'Schoolgirl'. It's growth rate is very poor, not yet reaching a metre and it has just had only three blooms. It is in full sun near a wall. Please advise what is might need.

Re: Rose 'Schoolgirl'
Most roses do well in open aspect and good sun..they also like a good humus rich deep soil.you cannot do much now apart from a liberal mulch of organic material like home made compost or farmyard manure.at least 100mm on the surfave will control moisture and insulate the roots etc..if you have doubts about the soil it is in...when it drops it's leaves..lift it and prepare a pit well for it...lots of organic material well dug in.(at least 450mm deep). a root pruning will also kick start and make it work.
