what weed killer can be used on a rose bed without killing the roses

I have a rose bed which is covered in gravel.Weeding is difficult and I would like to use a weed killer, I can protect the plants from any leaf contact.



hi Reh~ if you water the weed killer on to the gravel and avoid the leaves you can use roundup. Our local council gardeners even water the woody stems and the plants all seem to survive, except the weeds of course.
