I have had BGF in my south Louisiana garden for three years now. Granted, it got chewed down to a nub by our puppy in its first year so it's amazing that it's still alive, but it continues to struggle two years later. It gets lots of sun where it is, but I did not feed it last year b/c it looked so sickly I was afraid it would kill it. It was planted in a well blended hole and I thought it should have plenty of readily available nutrients at least through the second year. It's not looking much better this spring - already covered in black spot - should I feed it? Anything in particular? Should I move it to a pot? I feel like it needs some help.

My friend and I have had the same experience with this rose....our's are own root and struggling after 2 years of care. I'm going to purchase a grafted rose next.

If Grimm is anything like its close relative, Aprikola, for me, it's possibly really bad cercospora or anthracnose. I gave up on Aprikola during its 2nd year for this exact reason, and never bothered with Grimm because its too close of a relation to Aprikola for comfort.

My Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale has thrown several long canes this summer. This is the second growing season for this bush. The first season it did throw a few long canes, but only about 3 feet in length. This year the bush has about 5 canes as long as 6+ feet . Those canes only flowered on the tips.

I take it that this is NOT the normal growth habit for this variety? It is sprawling out and taking up so much space that I'm going to have to move it since it is now encroaching on a Pumpkin Patch Rose, which is planted near it.

Thanks for your help.

The canes You describe as 6footers, did they grow this season, or was part of it of last year?
In other words: Did You prune last years' canes?
If not, You might have found a sport!
When You have the patience to wait till next year, those canes will most likely produce laterals, that will flower.

Hi Jay-Jay,

Those longer arching canes grew this year after I had pruned the bush in the spring (late March/early April).

I'm going to have to move Brother's Grimm next spring because it is covering a Pumpkin Patch on one side and a perennial Hibiscus on the other.

I'll try to upload a photo over the weekend.

Thanks for your help!

You're welcome! I'll look forward to Your photo's.
PS: A Pumpkin Patch is a patch of soil on which pumpkins grow? Or is it a plant?

Apologies! I meant a "Pumpkin Patch" Rose. <grin> I should have been clearer. I didn't even give it a thought about the double meaning.

No apology needed, but I can't find that Rose on HMF.
I now understand/looked that up, that a Pumpkin Patch is a kind of a display of (different kinds of) pumpkins.

Hi Jay-Jay,

I like the color(s) on Pumpkin Patch, too. The various seasons play a hand in the exact coloring I get.

I uploaded three photos. I didn't realize the photos were listed under my screen name and not the Brothers Grimm entry. Sorry. You can view the pictures by clicking on my screen name above this post.
