Rose Rosette Disease
 

Hi Howard,


I called you 2 or 3 weeks ago about the Rose Rosette disease on my climbing antique rose. I have cut out the infected cane, applied the Sick Tree Treatment and sprayed Garrett Juice formula containing peroxide, orange oil and biowash. I took a lot of photos of the infected part of the plant.

 

I have been totally organic for over 12 years, but this rose bush is bordering my neighbor's yard. Her knock out roses are also infected and she has not been organic, but is now seeing the light! My knock out rose is doing great, so I'm afraid the problem is due to my bush bordering a non-organic yard. I will keep you posted on the results.
