Fuller Flower Development

by Richard Chew

After experimenting some ways to get long & short burst flower buds, I noticed it compromised fuller flower development. And very often the flower petals burnt when fertilizer dosage is too high.

I reasoned if I can maintain strong stem development but reduce the rate of flower bud development, I may get fuller flower development.

The following is some of the progress of my Fusilier Rose. Pay attention to the size and depth of flower petal.
