Drooping Roses Due To Weak Stems

8 years ago

I'm relatively new to the Northwest, (and gardening) and I've been learning the hard way, by trial and error, about how soils differ here from my native Southern California. I seem to have the best success with roses in both locals but lately I've noticed that while I am having a lot of large blooms in my hybrid tea rose garden, the stems seem rather weak sadly causing those large blooms to droop. Would any of you veteran Northwest gardeners have any suggestions as to what I should add to the soil to help strengthen those stems? I live in Mukilteo, which is north of Seattle and adjacent to Puget Sound.
