My roses get yellow leaves which spread over the whole roses bush and they fall off and the rose quit blooming
There are several reason for this, Bonnie. Here's a link explaining them:
Your rose is needing some nutrition. Water at the base only. Feed it Rose bush Miracle Gro (made esp. for roses) in the spring, then feed it banana peels all summer to keep it blooming. (they like the potassium in banana peels or puree them if you have concerns about rodents). Mine bloom heartily all summer and that is all I do. People stop and tell me how much they enjoy all my roses. Here are a couple photos of them. My bushes stay covered like this all year long. Be sure your roses receive direct sunshine all day or nearly all day.
Jeanette, I just lay them on the ground back behind the bush out of sight on the ground. Also, If needed, I could puree them if I had a rodent problem or fear of one. I just bag them in one of my sinks during the day and put them out with the roses as I go outside to water, etc. You actually LOSE nutrition when you dehydrate anything.
Hi Bonnie. My recommendation for healthy roses is to mix 3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with 4 liters of water. Gently pour this solution on the soil, not the flowers. Roses also like used coffee grounds. Good luck Bonnie.
Thanks, Cindy. I have both and will dump the used grounds on my roses daily or every couple of days, if that is a safe method.
