I have 5 standard roses ( lasting love adabreton hybrid tea ) and they grow very high and fast and then will fold over on the new growth, I then have to cut this off which means i dont get all the flowers + they dont keep very well when cut . thanks

After pruning I sprayed with Liquid copper mixed with Conqueror spraying oil. After talking further to the ladies at Palmers I was told to continue with the oil on its own every fortnight. After not been in the garden for 3 days, aphids have arrived. In my collection I also have Shield and Super Shield but have not used them yet. Should I be using the oil as well as the shield is my question? When do I use the copper again?

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 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??

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.!

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
