Two years ago I bought a David Austin Rose, William Shakespear. It hasn't thrived looking sad I have dug it up to replant only to find a white mildew type powder running it's way down through the root. Can you throw any light on the subject.



It'll just be the mycelium of a fungus - many develop a symbiotic relationship round the roots of plants, helping their growth. If the soil was dry, you'll have noticed it more. It's unlikely to be anything that might have damaged your plant.
