Hello and good morning
:( I have been following the rose program but I seem to have probles with two of my rose bushes. they look healthy but one has one stem that looks droopy, like ist not watered. looks wierd since the rest of the plant looks pretty healthy. The other, its called "knock out", I just purchased but botton of leaves are turning yellow but top of leaves are green and looking healthy. Can some one help me and advise me on what I should do. Thank you

When were they planted and how often are you watering?

I have had the plants for about 10 yrs and water about twice to sometimes 3 a week. this is the first time I have seen them droop. We did do the molasses and cornmeal on the yard. LOVE that stuff, but no nematodes. I am watering with casting and casting tea.

You should not have to water that often! This time a year once a week is completely sufficient. Dig down next to the trunk of the plant and feel how wet it is, a few inches down. I think you are overwatering. Plants can only do a few things to show you they are stressed and drooping is one of them. Drooping can mean it's too dry or too wet.
