Question From: r. humphreys - Bromley, , United Kingdom
Q: my golden celebration rose bush when the buds flower they droop not like my other bushes the roses are upright and full
Your rose may be suffering from one of several diseases. Botrytis blight damages buds causing them to droop. Begin by pruning off infected stems and discard them in a garbage bag. Be sure to disinfect the pruners with rubbing alcohol after every cut. You may then decided to treat the rose with a fungicide. Ask at your local independent garden center for recommendations and follow the directions carefully. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
