    Mildew ???

    I just put rose granules around my roses last week, and now two of them look like they are covered in mildew. I don't know if I just didn't notice it before or if it has happened in the past week. So two questions. 1. Could the granules be bad and caused this? 2. Will I have to cut down the roses because they are almost covered in it? I am going to by the spray tomorrow and start treating.

    Re: Mildew ???

     No, rose fertilizer doesn't produce mildew. Is the rose bush planted in a shady area? You want the bush in a sunny part of your yard. Try not to water the leaves of the bush. Water the ground so that the leaves don't get wet and the mildew spores don't have moisture to populate. Try a fungicidal soap spray on the leaves and follow the manufacturers instructions. You can pick off the worst covered leaves. New ones will grow.
