White Spots on my Rose Bush Leaves, follow-up

As a follow-up to my post White Spots on my Rose Bush Leaves, I want to tell you what I did differently this year – to great success!

As I mentioned before, I learned, after planting, that I had my rose bushes in entirely the wrong spot. They want air circulation, I have them crowded between the deck and the house; they want full sun, mine get about 2-3 hours per day.

In past years, I fought with mold (?) well, tons of white spots, very damaged leaves, very little flowering.

As you can see from all the photos of very healthy rose bushes, this year has been a banner year. Beautiful leaves, tons of roses so far and lots more buds on the bushes still to come!

My problems in the past were full bloom in April. These photos are taken near the end of May, and still no problems!

This year, because of the tremendous amount of foliage, the bushes are a bit top heavy so I added trellis for support and, I believe, for beauty.

You may want to try this on your bushes and, please, let me know the result!
