I have roses planted at back of the house which is very sunny but they don’t do any good. Is it because hubby has put polathyne down with stones on top up and surrounding the bass of the rose bush

Hi Kaye,

Yes, you should remove the polythene especially from around the bases of the roses. The Rosebush needs air flow around the base.
I personally discourage the use of weed matting such as polythene as it does not allow air flow and the natural movement of the soil, It depletes the soil of nutrients over time. However, weed matting the garden is entirely up to you, other gardeners would not go without it. Just remember to cut it back from the base of your plants.
