Last spring I planted several roses and they had the blooms they came with, but then the heat hit and nothing bloomed. Now that they've been established for almost a year, when can I expect them to start blooming?
I'm not far away from you (Houston) and I have found that it depends on the type of rose you have. I planted 3 hybrid tea plants. Two of them bloomed once but fizzled into nothingness in the heat. One of them (Mr. Lincoln) was still blooming at Christmas and would probably still have flowers on it if I hadn't pruned it.
With the warm winter we had this year, I wouldn't be surprised if they bloomed very soon.
