Dark red roses will not Bloom properly

3 years ago

I have over 85 roses in various beds around our property. They are coming into bloom now.

we pruned them all at the end of July and 3 weeks later fertilised with mixed cow and sheep manure, then peat mulch. The light coloured roses, pinks, creams, white, yellows and purples are absolutly perfect but all the dark red roses, Fathers Love, Alec’s Red, Mr Lincoln etc are all budding but the blooms are deformed and shrivel up before they bloom. Has anyone got any suggestions that may help. Please.
