With all the issues we have with our roses, with only 2 answers what are the 2 issues that really causes you the most work in managing the problems.

For me that would be..
1. Powdery Mildew... always a problem and needs to be kept on top off.
2. Mites... always needs spraying to keep them at bay.

Paulh Dimethoate is better for mites also known as Rogor, when you first notice them spray with a concentration of 2ml / lt , with a follow up spray 2wks later. This follow up spray is very important if you want to halt them.

Natrasoap, Biopest, Omite, Vertimec and Pyranica for mites. Nimrod and Wettable Sulphur for powdery mildew. I like to alternate the products so the little beasties don't build up an immunity.


As ozroz pointed out a follow up spray for mites is essential. In Summer I generally follow up after 7 days.

Neptune... with the said mix of wettable sulphur or malathon I add some spreadmax, I do tend to soak the bushes paying paticular attention to the underneath of the leaves. They really get a full wash with the mix, umm, if there is something I'm missing, please I will take the advice.

you need to drench the canes as well.....especially on joins as they lay eggs in the joints (ie: two connecting canes) and around the base.....

Black Spot & Weeds

Weeds are my biggest problem as they take the most time and effort however there has been an improvement since the African Queen bought me a Dutch hoe.

Doug, any chance of a photo of your Dutch Hoe, there seems to be some variation to them

The photos above are of my chook house eating 'Banksia Rose', I thought i would start pruning it back so the people looking after the chooks can get into it. the top shot is prior to me starting and then progression to show there is a chook house under it. the last shot is what i used to prune it with, battery operated pruners from work(grapes), made it relatively easy, now the clean up today.
