    Droopy stems on new growth

    My roses are in great health and have no sign's of pest problems I give them a fungicide every few weeks, but the new growth is droopy and weak. Is their anything that I could do to perk them up? They get fert once a week to everyother week and the soil in their pots are moist but not soaking wet.

    Sounds like too much fertilzer to me. Also, it could be the type of fertlizer that you are using as well which may be promoting rapid growth of canes. If you are using any kind of pH acidifiers such as Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate) or aluminum sulphate, you should probably not do it because this also causes rapid cane growth, sacrificing adequate cell development to hold it up.
