Help! There are White spots on my rose bush!

ValmuseSandra WeidnerC.B.


Does anyone know why this happens to my rose bush? It happens every year even though it produces flowers. I would like to stop this and help it flourish all summer.

    There appears to be more than one issue with the rose bush. Apply a three in on rose systemic for mildew,insects,and it has a slow release fertilizer.

    Apply a three and one systemic rose treatment.Home Improvement stores carry it. Look for the one by Bayer.

    My Suggestion: Bananas, bananas, may think I'm bananas...but it works! Dig a hole near or at the roots of your rose bush[es] drop in 2 banana peels & cover over. The rose bush will absorb the nutrients from the peels & the condition of the plants will GREATLY improve & it will also ward off insects! You will have the most beautiful roses & plants ever! And NO Chemicals!

      My friend told me to dig a hole, drop in banana peepls, then pour a can of beer on it. I tried it last year and beautiful roses! I use peels for my tomatoes religiously. They never let me down!

    Looks like you have aphids they eat the chlorophyll and leave white marking like that. Google for holistic, fungicide and insecticide for roses and there are several pages with recipes you make up out of your kitchen. Here is one link: good luck

    Great!! Thanks everyone. I have over ripe bananas I've been meaning to put down but haven't gotten around to it. Better make time for it tomorrow.
