Roses are considered to be the representation of love. From time immemorial, roses are a treasure that have adorned the likes of kings and queens. Even for the commoner, the rose was the moment when he transcended his commonness to aspire for the higher plains.
So, the demand for roses has always been good. Rose gardening thus has been in vogue throughout the history of the civilized world. To get a good harvest of roses, you have to look after the garden at all times of the year.
Fungal infection is very common for every breed of rose. In summer, fungus usually appears on the rose petals and black spots also seem to appear on the flowers. Insects like red spiders are the main troublemakers as well.
Normal utilization of chemicals controls the majority of these infections as well as of the sucking and chewing insects. But some insects are also beneficial to your roses.
You can prevent your roses from any type of insects through a lime-sulphur spray in early spring followed by a regular regimen of fungicide every 10 days beginning in mid spring. Remove all the infected stems, leaves, or canes and discard them. You have to continue this program until the rust is gone.
In a word, your roses should be fertilized regularly. If you have planted your roses right now, you can begin fertilization after the first time it blooms. Otherwise, while your roses are blooming, they can be fertilized every two or three weeks. It is also good to remember that chicken manure is great for roses.
