Beautiful roses. I like your raised beds and the edging. Very neat looking. Do you have much trouble with blackspot on your roses?

BTW - as I opened the thread a breeze brought the smell of florida jasmine by my nose. At first I thought I was smelling your roses. :oops: :lol2:

Most rose breeders get black spot. I get some because we get a fair bit of misty weather being on the edge of the tableland country. I use only natural sprays. I keep the fertiliser up to them. i put slow realease after they get their new leaves on and then I give them a good water with sea weed fertiliser every two to three weeks. I lightly prune them mid summer which extends their flowering well into autumn. I nearly always water them after dark. I'll post a few more pics soon.

Have you tried any of the Knock Out roses yet? Not nearly as pretty as the teas but they seem to have a lot going for them.
