Learning as I go. My garden is very exposed to the extreme coastal weather and strong winds. My garden is very much my escape.

Very true 😄 @awomanonabike but still had no rain here and really fed up having to continue watering.

None here either. We’ve had thunder and know there has been rain nearby but none here. It got really dark here at lunch time but still nothing. However, I’m really not complaining as the garden has so enjoyed the sunshine ☀️

Oh! @Diane051285 wondering if it's to do with soil ph then? If I solve it I'll let you know ☺

According to some sites I've googled it can be heat and temperature affecting them. We are still in the middle of a heatwave where I am and about 5 weeks of no rain now @Diane051285

I do give it a really good prune back to the frame. In past years especially if black spot is a problem then I do hack it to the ground and start again @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

I always plant with plenty of fresh compost mixed in and put on miracle grow continuous plant food pellets straight away and water in.

Plant some lavender near to the roses helps keep away greenfly.
