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?

My daughter is about to have her first baby and rather than send flowers I thought it would be different to send her a rose bush to mark the birth. Do you have any rose bushes with a suitable name? Also could you deliver to her address which is in Fitzroy, New Plymouth?
Look forward to hearing from you.

Regards from UK

I have about 80 odd roses on my life style block which I have been tending too. The other week the neighbour that leases some of our land applied some fertilisers by helicopter which included quite a lot of sulphur. They flew quite close to the house and now my roses are looking like they are dying? They all had lovely new growth and now that has all yellowed and drooping. Could this have affected them?

With all this rain in Auckland I have put off spraying copper on the roses, should I just do it or wait for a sunny forecast for longer than one day?

I have about 40 roses that have fantastic growth and lots of buds and flowers unfortunately the flowers and leaves of some bushes seem to have been eaten by earwigs? at least I think that is what it is. Could earwigs be causing this damage and if so what can I do to get rid of them??

My rather old roses (potted) look as though they are suffering from die back…but it seems I should have sprayed them with lime sulphur when leafless..is there anything I can do now? Should I keep on cutting off the bits that are turning brown and look dead? Should I just leave things alone and spray properly next year? They are flowering and look healthy otherwise.

Back in June I planted a rose garden consisting of 80 odd roses. Most of them are great. Except for about 3 of them which look sickly and leaves are droopy. I have been spraying and feeding and mulching. We do live in a high rainfall area so could they be affected by too much rain/poor drainage?

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.

I know how to prune bush roses buy pruning to an outside bud and removing any branches crossing the centre of the bush, to keep the bush open. However when it comes to climbing roses I am stuck as to how you get lovely flowering long trailing branches and the pruning of them so as not to shorten these branches. Can you help me please as I am pruning at the moment ?

I have some standard roses that, despite being sprayed regularly with supershield, are totally covered with bugs (thrips and mites I think??) and generally look unhealthy (eg blackspot). Is there anything I can do to save them?

Our daughter’s wedding reception is in our garden mid February 🙂 I have various bush roses so there’s ‘usually’ continuous flowers. I dead-head them regularly cutting down to a five-leafer but can I manipulate the flowering with the timing of my cutting to get the maximum blooms on wedding day?
