Browning leaves can indicate a fungal infection, fertilizer burn, or a lack of water. Neem oil sprays will help control fungal infections so you've covered that area. Roses need a deep soaking once or twice a week, depending upon weather. When you feed, be sure to follow label directions for amounts to apply. At this point, I'd suggest pruning your rose back to encourage healthy new growth. I hope your rose recovers soon!
