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 Jackie

Thanks for your question. Some roses are very susceptible to disease. It sounds like you need to focus on improving the immune system of the rose. Visit your local store to chat about a product by Seasol and also Organic control by Kiwicare. Cutting the rose back this hard is likely to cause mishapen problems and probably wont see your challenge fixed.

Happy gardening
