My landscaper has planted three iceberg roses in a lawn area where the grass is butted up to the trunk. Is this okay as the only way to feed them is with a liquid fertiliser and I’m concern this may limit the amount of roses that will be delivered.

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?

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 please can you tell me what month is the best for planting carpet roses in Auckland? How far apart should they be planted to give a good ground cover?
Thank you

Hi

I’m looking for a rose that I can buy in bloom for March the 24th. I particularity like white roses. The Rose is a memory of our mum who has passed and cannot be at a family wedding in person that is why we’re looking for something already in bloom for that date. What do you recommend?

Thanks
Joanne

Hi there, I have some iceberg roses which are planted side by side .Most are doing well except for three. Two of the rose bushes have persistent blackspot and yellowing leaves despite religious fortnightly spraying and one despite healthy leaves and buds has the droopiest blooms which look like they have been water deprived but certainly have not been. Any advice is very welcome.!

I have an iceberg rose in a large patio pot on a deck which was given to me for Xmas 2 years ago. it has flowered profusely during that time, however this year the flowers are coming out mostly pink with a little white and don’t look that healthy. Do I need to repot? It is well loved and cared for.

Hi.

I have quite a few standard roses, mainly Iceberg and I have one Margaret Merrill. We have just built the house and all roses were planted this winter. The Margaret Merrill has terrible black spot. I have been spraying it weekly but it doesn’t seem to be improving and only has about 10 leaves which are all covered in black spot. It has also started to spread to the two closest Icebergs and worry it will continue to spread to all of them. Should I get rid of the Margaret Merrill. I have never had a Margaret Merrill before so not sure if it is just later to bloom than the icebergs which currently all look amazing (besides a few leaves with black spot)and will still come away or it it should be covered in foliage by now? Also is I do get rid of it all together, will the black spot be in the soil and will I need to avoid replanting a rose there?

I have 3 really old roses that have continuous blackspot, rust etc. no matter how much i spray its always there. is it possible to prune the roses right back to the main stem (the woody part) and start all over again, or will this effect the plant and stress is it out and kill it off?

Hi

I would like to buy plants for friends who may be moving in the future, which needs to be easy to look after.

I like the idea of it being in a pot with colourful flowers and a strong perfume. A freind suggested the Josephine Bruce Rose what are your thoughts on this and can you suggest anything else

They both live in Auckland

Thanks very much
Wendy
