yellow leaves on my roses


HELP some of my roses have leaves that are turning bright yellow, they have been treated like babies, sprayed early spring, fed blood fish and bone, everything one is supposed to do, but I keep picking off yellow leaves, never had this before roses are about 8 years old. thanks

You seem to have done all the right things PC. Even though they are well established could it be lack of rain. The feed you gave them may not have filtered down through the soil. sorry I can't be of much help.

A handful of Epsom salts around each rose will stop the yellowing Pat. Epson Salts is used to provide Magnesium to the soil. Roses seem to be heavy feeders on this element. Repeat in 3-4 months if any yellowing recurs.
