If you plant a rose bush in the shade, it will whither

  • By Alan Knott-Craig

Roses need sun. Lots of it.

Sun, sun, sun, all day.

Give sun, and you’ll have beautiful flowers and flourishing bushes.

On the other hand, if you plant a rose bush in the shade, it will fail.

No matter how good the soil and how much water to you feed it, the roses will fail because they need sun.

There’s no such thing as a failed rose bush. Only failed gardeners.

Same goes for staff.

If one of your team is not flourishing, think about whether you’ve given her enough sun, or planted her in the shade.

If she’s a rose, and you plant her in the shade, she’ll fail.

And it’s your fault.
