Watch-Out for Pesky Pests
O.K. the rose(s) are in, you're pickin' the "fruits of your labor", enjoying the fragrance, the beauty to behold, be it in the garden or in the house...Wow!
Be reflective, lay out in your mind the watering schedule, how has the weather been, when is the last time you fed your roses, the last time you really looked closely at them?
Every state has different products to combat insects and diseases, so check with your local sources of information and don't forget your local Rose Society. If you have ongoing problems, you may want to consider hardy or disease-resistant roses.
