County Durham, United Kingdom
I have bought a David Austin rose in poor condition for half price and intend giving it some TLC and hopefully it will turn out to be a bargain. It has been cut back hard and has a few small leaves with mildew (I can here the cries of 'why did you buy it? ' ringing in my ears) I have sprayed it with Bio Multi Rose which claims to cure mildew, how long should it be before I see the mildew clear up and is there a better mildew cure on the market? I am not putting it in my garden yet to safeguard my other roses but with this damp weather I fear they might develop mildew of their own accord anyway so preventative tips as well as cures are welcome.
