Sounds great! I noticed my miniature rose is looking a bit poorly by now. It seems to have developed black spot and some sort of other leaf damage (possibly thrips or green flies) but it's at the bottom and at the back of the shrub so I only spotted it by chance yesterday. I think it got too dense and not enough air flow because I didn't prune it this spring, I just trimmed it lightly to keep more height but it seems to do better with a proper spring pruning.
@ublaszko oh no 😩 was looking great this year too, even if not too miniature 😂 the weather has been ideal for all these powdery mildew and fungus type things 😟 hopefully it’ll be ok when it regrows next year 🤞🏻
Fingers crossed. I don't think I've been very consistent with using Rose Clear this year and quite a few plants had black spot, powdery mildew etc this year. I actually noticed my garden is not as bad for that as the university gardens so I didn't even realise until recently how bad it could get because of the weather this year.
@ublaszko it’s so much to keep on top of and when they’re looking ok you tend to not spray. After you said about yours I checked my roses today and the same has happened to a couple. The ones with dense foliage 😔
@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom it’s a dog rose Elaine 😊 my nan took a cutting from the wrong end of her rose so ended up with a rootstock cutting 😂 not that I’m complaining, it’s lovely. Flowers no end and grows so fast too!
