For example;

Certain signs can often determine the exact problem, e.g. an empty flower case can suggest frost damage.

To cure these problems, avoid planting out in areas that catch the morning sun, this should reduce the risks of frost damage.

Cut back blind shoots by half to stimulate further growth.

Improve growing conditions by feeding and mulching regularly.

Prune out a large proportion of older wood and this will encourage new growth.
