I live in Bangalore and Am a complete newbie when it comes to gardening. Used to be a full time software developer. Now a full time mom . I love roses and thought of giving it a try since I have a nice sunlit balcony. I got 3 simple varieties and they were doing ok for sometime. But still not great. So I decided to add some fertiliser which the nursery guy gave me. He asked not to add them close to the roots. So, I was careful and added only a pinch. But right after that, I got too many buds all burning out eventually and curled leaves. If at all, the buds go on to bloom, they are too small. I just kept on cutting the dried flowers and now the condition is slightly improved. But still having curled leaves.

Will I be able to save them? Please tell me what I can do. Is it just the fertiliser or too hot summer? I really want to know what went wrong. It breaks my heart to see them like this every morning.

As you have not shared the name of the fertiliser its difficult to say anything about it. From you description I am guessing following: Please opt for the proper fertiliser (such as 19:19:19) or any organic they show good result, they nourish your tree and does not force it to flower. Please allow the plant to flower in their respective seasons. Nursery guys usually have to sell the plant hence they use fertilise to make small shrubs to flower.

The reason for curled leaves is too much heat. Try and move your plant out of harsh sun for some time and check.

I hope this helps.
