Tying Roses - Knowledgebase Question

Pittsburgh, PA
Question by pafigura

Last year we bought hedge roses. They are nearly 4 feet tall and falling forward. Can we tie them up and what should we use to do that? Do we tie them individually or in clusters (I have 18 bushes)? Also, many are getting black specks all over the leaves and buds. What can I do for that problem?
THANKS!

England
indicated that 1.5 tablespoons of baking soda in 1 quart of
water was effective. Add just a a few drops of dish detergent to
help it stick. You may want to try it and see for yourself.
Caution: Always test something new like this on a few leaves and
wait a few days to see the results before spraying all of your
plants.

Good luck with your roses.
