Sandra's Monthly Rose Spray

Humidity and roses are not good bedfellows at all.

And when roses struggle to maintain their vigour pest and disease usually follow.

But keeping your rose happy in the heat and humidity of the sub-tropics does not have to be a complex scientific mission-impossible. It just requires a few extra steps.

Too keep chemical use at a minimum in the rose garden, use my monthly spray for roses.

It comes highly recommended and keeps my roses strong, disease and insect free with shiny glossy leaves. The trick is keeping it up throughout the summer.

You will need a battery operated power sprayer or quality pump sprayer.

Hi Les,

'Eco-neem' by OCP is a fantastic concentrated neem oil in the "Eco-organics' range of home garden products. We use them all with great success. You'll find Eco-neem and the full range of Eco-organics products, like Eco-oil, Eco-fungicide and Eco-seeweed, at most good nurseries and hardware stores.
