Home Forums Champions’ chat Safe Rose Spray Reply To: Safe Rose Spray


I gave up growing roses a while ago; although beautiful they require so much tending with varied disease problems that require chemical solutions.
Don’t think we can post website addresses here but if you Google ‘thewiedersgarden’ you might come across a blog (American) ( try searching – Controlling Blackspot Without Toxic Chemical Sprays) that has advice on preventative methods and safe sprays. Lots of useful information in there.
For myself as I grow older, the garden just sprawls with low growing banks of perennials, spring bulbs, blossom/fruit trees, grasses. Less work = happy gardener, happy hogs!
Hope you find a solution to ensure both beautiful roses and healthy wildlife (and dogs!)
