My rosebuds seem stunted and there are tiny grubslike creatures on them.What are they and how can I treat them?



Hi dofrey think it might be sort of "aphids" Sp? You would need to buy a spray to kill these of (spray for roses) i wash mine down also with dishwasher great job,and keep an eye on them

Thanks Mobee,I have been looking on the internet and I am sure now they are rose midges.It seems the only cure are chemical treatments that I hope I can find here in Spain.Looks like another vist to the garden center!!!
