Roses

There are some frustrating diseases & pests that will attempt to attack your roses. It is important to recognise them early, as the quicker the treatment is started the quicker control is gained, limiting the stress on the rose bush as well as the gardener!
  1. Aphids
    Aphids are amongst the most destructive insect pests on cultivated plants in temperate regions and are known to cluster on the young shoots and flower buds or underneath the older leaves of plants.
  2. Thrips
    Watch out gardeners! The thrip is downright destructive, attacking the flowers, fruit and foliage of all kinds of plants, from ornamentals to edibles, stunting their growth and leaving them less then desirable to look at.
  3. Scale Insects
    Scale insects vary dramatically in appearance; some are very small organisms
  4. Rust
    Roses and rust can be a frustrating combination for rose gardeners because this fungus can not only ruin the look of roses, but if left untreated, rust spots on roses will eventually kill your plants. Let’s learn more how to identify and treat rose rust.
  5. Rose Scale
    Gardeners are often used to seeing insects hop, crawl or fly around.
  6. Black Spot
    It sounds as menacing as it is: Black spot is an ugly, fungal disease that commonly affects roses and can attack leaves, stems and the fruits of plants. Periods of high humidity, prolonged wet foliage and air temperatures are the ideal breeding ground for this disease. Symptoms- The feathery, black spots first develop on the upper surface of leaves and continues with all the infected leaves turning yellow and falling off prematurely. Treatment of this disease is year round as the fungus survives over winter on stems and leaf litter. This is a common problem on roses, especially during warm conditions and all rose bushes should be checked daily to treat and avoid this devastating condition.
  7. Powdery Mildew
    What’s this white stuff covering the leaves of my plants? It looks like someone has attacked them with a dusting of baby powder. If this is how your plants look, it’s time to take a closer look at them. Powdery mildew is a nasty fungus that makes yearly appearances in many gardens and landscapes. It’s a garden nuisance that adores high humidity and dry conditions that comes with summer and can last into the autumn. Water splash and wind can spread the spores, which grow on the surfaces of leaves only. Symptoms- The appearance of a whitish powder coating on top and underneath leaves and buds. Older leaves ten to become blackened, new growth is distorted and discoloured and flower buds may fail to open.
  8. Mealy Bugs
    Commonly found on houseplants, these small insects can creep up on you and turn into populations that are hard to control. It’s important to treat plants immediately once you find this pest. These small pests are usually 1-4 mm long and are covered with a white, cottony or me
  9. Caterpillars
    Munch! Munch! Munch! You’re familiar with the damage.
  10. Two Spotted Mites
    The two spotted mite is the most common of all plant mite pests. It is easy to identify because of the 2 spots on its back. These spots can be seen with a magnifying glass and can vary in colour from green to red to purple. Populations thrive in hot, dry weather, so under these conditions, watch your plants closely as these mites can creep up on you.
