I have a rose bed full of Jacques Cartier which we planted in 2000, they flowered beautifully the first year and from the on in we have had foliage 2 - 2.5 metres heigh and very few flowers. Any suggestions

Re: Jacques Cartier Rose
Have you been pruning your rose? A repeat flowering shrub rose like this should be pruned in late winter, reducing strong new growth by about a third, and shortening any strong side shoots to two or three buds.
I’d also try feeding with a fertiliser high in phosphorous (which encourages flower production). Over fertilisation with a normal balanced feed can provide the plant with too much nitrogen, which can result in over production of foliage at the expense of blooms.
Hope this helps – let us know how you get on next year!

Re: Re: Jacques Cartier Rose
Thanks for that, yes I have pruned, 50 of the 52, the 2 I haven't pruned are now 12 feet tall and flower in abundance, perhaps I am over pruning the others
