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?

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?

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 8 potted roses, which i unintentionally over fertilised, which i found out used a rose fertiliser for roses in actual gardens. Is it possible at all to save them, or will they need to be replaced.

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??

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?

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 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.

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?

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??
