    Is it newly planted Bario? Young plants need less of a prune.

    This is worth a read

    Planted this time last year (bare root from the late David Austin), so in their second season?

    I would class that as year1 pruning. I've a few too.

    Anyone else have a Tequila Sunrise rose? I planted one last year, pruned it this spring... and it seems to be growing somewhat fast for what's supposed to be a relative small rose. It's definitely the right variety I have because the flowers last year looked right. But it seems really vigorous in my raised bed: David Austin say 2.5ft tall, the RHS say 75cm, but it's probably grown 50cm so far this spring already.

    Roses put on most of their growth in Spring - especially if it likes where it is.
    I havent got one....but I'm tempted now

    I guess I'm just comparing it to my other roses, and it's notably going faster than most of them, apart from the climbers and ramblers. It certainly isn't acting like a compact rose.

    As for the flowers, I'd say they're a bit gaudy, but very visible and cheerful. They're a bit of garden bling, and a million miles away from the pastel shades I usually go for. But I saw one in flower at the garden centre and it seduced me...

    I planted a couple of ramblers ... I'm desperately waiting for them to put on a huge amount of growth.... no such luck for me. They look healthy enough but they aren't covering my arch yet.
    I think I may need to get some feed/ manure
