I have a rose which was here when we moved here 15 yrs ago , I don,t know it,s name , it has always flowered prolifically , covering the top of the summerhouse , looking beautiful .
it never showed any sign of disease before , I enjoy taking rose cuttings , so took several from it ..
I planted the new ones in the garden last year , I now have 5 including the old parent one.
They all have this horrible mildew this year . I don,t like to spray , but did as a last resort to saving them .it hasn,t made much difference ..
My question is , will they recover for another year or should they be removed ?
