A lot of my climbing rose leaves are turning yellow and have holes in them. What should I put on them?
Rose dust? I have been using a holistic method and have not seen any improvement. The homemade is vegetable, cayenne pepper, dish soap and water. Any suggestions?

Sounds like it's time for something a little more potent. Neem oil is a botanical and is accepted for use by organic growers. Green Light's Rose Defense is neem oil based and should protect your roses from insect and disease problems. Be sure to apply according to label directions. Good luck with your roses.
