important to keep them healthy

Roses do not cling to walls and
fences themselves like some plants
do. Therefore, they will require
tying in. To ensure that you get
the most out of your roses it is

them properly. This will avoid
problems such as flowers only

a climbing rose or rambling roses
being too tightly compact, which
can result in unhealthy tangled
growth with few flowers.
As with all plants, roses can become
damaged by pests and diseases.
But with good husbandry and a few
preventative measures roses are
generally healthy and easy to grow.

most common pests and diseases
that can affect roses and offer
advice on how to deal with them.
