Smell the roses

If you have a rose garden, here are some gardening tips to keep in mind this month.

  • Water at least once a week.
  • It is unnecessary to fertilise roses now.
  • Keep on spraying against fungal infections like black spot, mildews and rust, which are much more active in cooler weather.
  • Aphids can still be problematic and more difficult to destroy in summer, seemingly due to higher sugar levels in the plant cells, which attract them. Use systemic insecticides as sprays, or drench the soil around each bush with a systemic insecticide which is recommended to combat these pests effectively and for longer.
