I have my own spraying and fertilizing routine worked out to keep my roses free of fungus and full of bloom.

I hope to use the inspiration you have given me to do a better job with my roses this year. I slacked up on the spraying and the fertilizing last year and it showed.

Taking care really does make a big difference in how good they look and how much they bloom.

Thank you. They are a lot of work but that is because I want them to be perfect. I will not tolerate even a small amount of yellowing leaves.

Beautiful, Rita! That first picture showing the glossy green leaves is every bit as beautiful as the blooms. I only have a few roses, but this is very good information to know.

Thanks! To me, roses are more than just about the blooms. Yes, of course we grow them for the blooms but they need to be nice looking healthy green shrubs even when not in bloom. That way, they always look decent. I tried the no spray way when I first got roses. It did not work for me. Roses dropped all their leaves and became naked sticks. Looked awefull!
