I planted my new dawn in March 2016. It has grown like crazy! Last year in spring I got a full flush of blooms. This year I got a full flush blooms in spring. But it doesn’t seem to continue blooming. I am deadheading it, and doing so properly down to five leaves. I also have gotten a Normas amount of growth coming off of it, it’s extremely leggy. So the question I have is, is it too soon for me to expect to bloom all season long?
It is extremely healthy and happy and green, almost no disease, just a little bit of mildew lately. I live in Northern California I am in 100% full sun, and I’ve been fertilizing every three weeks with Max sea 16 1616 Any thoughts?

This rose is a survivor. On a family rural property, I had this rose growing on its own roots in a garden bed with plenty of other roses growing (all the other roses where grafted onto Dr. Huey) the garden bed was watered using a local dam that was being filled from time to time with bore water. The bore increased the concentration of salt (unbeknown to us at the time was the salinity of the bore water) in the dam and hence that water was used on the rose bed, which killed all the roses over the summer. Symptoms were burning of the leaves around the outside, die back and other typical symptoms of salt poisoning.... Indica Major, gigantic climber in this bed died very rapidly as well as all the HT and F.B's gone. There was some other survivors, Queen Elizabeth, 3 bushes (also grown on own roots) and some other Scarlet Carpet roses..these roses had some burning to the leaves, but continued to flower. The soil was intense heavy clay. I am going to explore using QEII, New Dawn and Scarlet Carpet rose as potential root stocks for salty/heavy clay soils... In the mean time, the bed has had all dead roses pulled out, dug up and allowed to be flushed with rain water to leach out the salts before replanting in a few years time.

Thank you for a fantastic description of salt-damage in heavy clay.

We give these no water and they are still incredibly vigorous. There should be a warning about the potential size in warm climates though!

New Dawn is extremely tough here in Z8. Some have been moved, planted in sandy soil, planted in clay, and several planted in what was a previous gravel road! Doesn't seem to be picky about the soil or shade conditions, zero blackspot. VERY fast growing with viscous thorns. Didn't bloom the first year but now covered in blooms with a strong soapy scent that wafts. Stayed green all winter with no protection.

I have a list of roses recommended by John Abercrombie in his 1813 book, ''Everyman His Own Gardener", maybe it is already posted, otherwise where would be the most appropriate place to post it too?
Kind regards, Andrew.

What about in the comments section of the book. See here:
If you have the edition number, that would be good to have too.
