This category contains questions regarding their nature and livelihood, biological makeup, and how to care for them.

What does 6 red roses and 1 pink rose mean?

Can you still be pregnant if your temperature dropped on day 18 then rose again on day 19 dropped on day 21 and rose again on day 22?

In my honest opinion I would not rely on your Body temperature to indicate the possibility of pregnancy as body temperatures rise and decrease at various times of the day for various reasons, most of them not pregnancy related.

The best thing to do is to see if your period arrives. If it doesn't then perform a pregnancy test. Any time you have unprotected intercourse there is a chance you may be pregnant. Good luck TTC.

Why would a rose bush stop making more roses?

Many roses only flower once or twice in a season and are not repeat flowering. If the rose is not flowering over a very long time, the soil may be too rich in nitrogen, and not high enough in the other needed elements. Garden centers have products that will promote flowering, or try ash around the plant. The other possibility is that the plant is now more shaded than before, as roses need full sun to flower well.

Why would the leaves on your wild rose bushes be turning yellow in June?

== == * You've either let the rose bush get too dry or over watered it. Also check on the back of the leaves (also in the rose pedals) for bugs. If you have any insects on the bush then use 'Safer's Bar Soap' use a potato peeler and put the pieces in a spray water and add tepid water, then spray your rose bushes (all of them or any other plants around them) including the group at the bottom of the plants. Safe Soap is environmentally friendly and it's been used for years. * Yellow leaves are caused by many different factors: too dry, too wet, insects, disease, lack of Nitrogen, lack of air, too much sun, not enough sun just to list a few. Insufficient amounts of Nitrogen can also cause leaves to yellow. If this is the case, water rose bush well. four or so hours later, when roots are actively "drinking" water with Rose Food (fertilizer) following concentration directions on package.
