i have a few rose bushes bought from the local Costco. they have been planted in 3 gal pots. they all have been healthy and providing many blooms for almost 4 years. all of a sudden small holes have been appearing on the leaves of one plant and also on the bloom. i have not changed watering/fertilizing habits. i keep a solar light in each pot to discourage night pests.
any ideas?
thank you.

Small holes are probably insect related and the best approach is to use a neem based product such as Rose Defense. It will take care of those pests!
