This is not exactly true. You can feed distressed roses, but with something very gentle and organic. Think of it this way, when your sick you don't feel like eating but you should eat, just only certain foods.

Thanks, all! Yeah, I'm trying to strike a balance between overdoing and not doing enough. About a month ago, I used the Bayer 3-in-1 product on all of my roses and less than a week ago I put one of those Jobe's slow-release rose food stakes next to each plant.

She's not giving up -- there's a new stem and leaves growing from the wood. I'm hopeful!

Smile Gotta be patient!

Well, Princess Di is hanging in there! Today, I noticed that two more stems are starting to grow from the wood! I think those Jobe plant food stakes are helping all of my rose bushes as the others are budding beautifully, as well, since I put them in!

I think patience more than anything is going to be required for Princess Di. It's a really positive sign that she's growing, albeit slowly.

Smile Update!

Princess Di is doing GREAT!!!!! She's growing like crazy now! I think the Jobe rose stakes helped (the other roses are growing and budding like mad, too!) and we've gotten just the right amount of rain.

It's looking good for her!!! Thanks, everyone!!!

Here's a pic of the very first bloom Princess Di produced last year. It's why I SO want her to thrive!

Go buy some Vit. B1. It's cost very little and goes a long way. They use it for transplant shock but works very well for any kind of stressed plants. I always have used this when any of my plants get stressed and it works well. If you can't find the B1 get any kind of transplant solutions they have and it will probably contain vit. B1. I use to work professionally with plants in office buildings and airports--we use it often with good results.
