Powdery Mildew on new seedlings.
Aphids on new seedlings and grafted first growth shoots.

I spray with Lebaycid because I have a lot left over from use when spraying stone fruit. Personally, spraying is a health hazard so no roses older than 6 months get sprayed.

Weeds or grass is tolerated because it keeps the roots cooler in summer and conserves moisture.  Long tap rooted weeds are not tolerated.
Most grasses have shallow roots to 60mm and roses are considerably deeper so I just plant my roses anywhere, even in the front lawn.

Just the everyday variety Cyclone brand Dutch hoe available at Bunnings for about $19. This does the job however I would like one that has a heavier and sharper blade.

That certainly is a big job, David, keeping up with your huge Banksia rose.
For me the main time consuming jobs with roses over the years has changed. But I was thinking on the same lines as Garry. I am looking forward to those two future time consuming jobs again amongst my roses this Spring coming.

Doug, your Dutch Hoe is not the one I had envisaged, the one I remember seemed to have a hook or a pointed edge, unlike your one which is a push/ pull type.

Try a three prong scarrifyer.  They are great for new weed emergence.  Noticed Bunning's have them.
