    Hi. I have this nice China rose at home, and it was blooming just fine. But this season the blooms started to "detach" themselves and fall off. What might be the case?

    I can't say for sure, but the bloom fall might be "balling", a condition caused by the bud getting wet (rain or dew) and then drying quickly in the sun. The outer petals form a hard barrier, and the bloom can't develop properly. OR, it might be lack of proper ventilation--rose bushes that get too thick cut off air circulation to the buds and blooms. Pruning fixes that.
