Wrinkled Leaves?

Wrinkled Leaves?

Post by Happy roses on 25th October 2013, 11:11

Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone can give me a clue on whats wrong with one of my roses. Few weeks ago I repotted all of the roses with the same mix and they have responded well. The runt of the litter which is a Double Delight has picked up the pace and is leafing out nicely. Yesterday I noticed that some of the new leafs seem to be small, brighter green and wrinkled. (Other roses are ok) I can't find any pest or diseases, though I was having a problem with aphids but this rose seemed to be free of them. Haven't sprayed any weed killer around so it isn't that. I have no idea..

Caroline, can you put a photo up and can you tell us what you did and use on re-potting, please...

This isn't my rose but ones I found on the net, same symptoms though no one knew there then either what it was. I've realised that some of my other pots have a couple of  leaves drooping as in the second picture.
I mixed potting mix with some perlite, coir peat, b&b, rock minerals and just a little slow release fertilizers that I was assured was ok to put on newly potted roses. Watered with Seasol.

Apart from that they are growing very well. I'm guessing a deficiency perhaps?

It reminds me a bit of fertilizing burning......

I think your right, some leaves looked burnt, if I just water for a few weeks without adding anything, hopefully should get better.
