Roses – Help!
Looking for some advise on my rosebush. A few weeks ago it was lush and beautiful - I was *thrilled* with it. This is the first year it's bloomed (just planted last year) and it couldn't have been more beautiful a few weeks ago. But now... something has gone horribly wrong. Here it is on July 1st: Over the last two weeks all of the flowers have wilted and started looking sickly, and a bulk of the leaves have developed yellow spots. Here are a few shots from today: After I took those photos I went in and trimmed a lot off of the rosebush – cutting off all dead flowers and a bulk of the yellowed leaves with hopes that it will grow back healthier. But… what happened?? Is it diseased? Is there something we can do to fix it? Help! More info on my blog, here.
