I’m new to growing roses. I planted three rose bushes and two climbers in June. When should I feed the roses with Blood and Bone and how often? And also how do I stop grass and weed growing around it? I’ve been pulling them out, but that’s a lot of effort and time consuming, is there anything I can get to stop the grass/weed?

Hello from the U.K!

I am going to be visiting my son Auckland in two weeks and would like to buy some David Austin roses for his garden. Do you have any in stock?

Looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully visiting your garden centre.

Hi
I am trying to cover an ugly fence with some climbing roses. The problem is that we experienced a lot of westerly winds and I need something that can successfully deal with these winds as well as climb. Can you give me some recommendations for roses that can climb and are wind hardy.

Many thanks
Nicola

Hello

I bought a climbing rose named Wedding Day two seasons ago. During the first season, it bore no flowers with plenty of foliage.
This year there were two bunches of small white flowers at the beginning of this season. But no further flowers. The branches are growing tall and climbing.
What should I do?

Thanks for your advice.

Regards
Hiran

I need to move a couple of roses to redo retaining wall and fences. These are old roses some dating back to 1860’s. I’ve taken cutting unsuccessfully in case we lose when moving. We have dug on 2 sides of each rose and about to do the othr sides. Are you able to give us any suggestions please.

I’m going to be planting a rose garden this weekend with 8 Roses that were given to me when my mum (Rose) passed away. I would like any hints that will help them do well. I will raise the bed about 300ml high and have a couple of if bags of Rose soil to mix with ordinary topsoil. I was wondering if I should companion plant around them ?
Many Thanks
Jillian

Is it correct that at this time of the year if you don’t dead head roses and leave them to form rose hips does the bush then go into hibernation, so that it thinks growing time is over and will put the effort into the plant and produce more after prunning time in July for the next season.

My standard roses “Sir Tristram” suffers from extreme rust and black spot. I spray each 10 days with Bravo but this does not contain the problem. Please advise of the best brand of spray for this disease.

We’ve recently moved to the Hawkes Bay and were thrilled to find we have peony roses however the foliage is dying off big time – is this normal? How should we care for them now?

We’ve just moved into a house with an old rose garden, it’s beautiful but the weeds are out of control. We’ve also just changed the carpet, removing an old woollen carpet. Can we use the old carpet as weed matting in the rose garden??

Hi, my roses are looking pretty sad and have lost most of the leaves, can I prune these now? Thanks

1)My rose plant has just started growing leaves (perhaps a few weeks now), but now they’re already riddled with ?orange rust?…seeing orange spots on the leaves as it was before having been pruned. Does that immediately happen? I feel sorry for the young leaves being attacked by this. What could I have done or what can I do to stop this escalating?

2) My gardenia plant has always been coated with black soot both on leaves and stems. Since then it has remained small, leaves are small and yellowed (not a dark green colour) and has not flowered since then. What can I do? I’ve been trying to wash it off with water spray and even bought neem oil (but had not been very regular using it 🙂 ). Still the black soot is present. What more can I do?

I was given a rose and it has been beautiful all summer. But now it is again dying back on some of its branches. I did cut the last round off below the affected area, but it is doing it again?
Their are also ants around also.
It is in a large pot.
It is a beautiful single rose.

Would love to attach photo but don’t know how. I am also house bound just now recovering from an operation.
