I have a patio climbing rose in a tub growing over an arch, it has been in for a year and has grown well but I noticed a few weeks ago that some of the leaves are turning yellow, then brown and dropping off and this seems to be getting worse ... what can I do please. I have give it some rose feed a week ago and water it well when we have had no rain.



A patio climbing rose? I thought patio roses were just those 8 inch high little bushes for the patio - are you telling me they've now got a hybrid that climbs? Assuming you've just got a climbing rose, and not an actual "patio" rose, it's likely because it's in a tub - roses (other than patio ones) like to put down very deep roots, and obviously that can't happen in a pot. If it is actually a patio rose, I'd like to know it's varietal name, please, Valmac.
