This is what we have all been waiting for and with the Spring being much kinder this year than last, most gardens have a great show of roses. Growth rates have been terrific and early bloomers like Just Joey are already showing buds for a second crop.
After the main period of dead-heading, apply another small amount of Sudden Impact for Roses and water in thoroughly. Spraying to keep Black Spot under control should take place every 14 days. Watch for bud worms that are small caterpillars which
destroy the buds before they open. Spraying with Mavrik is highly effective and Pyrethrum will also do the trick. Do not spray when bees are around.
