Rose Bush Blooms Droop And Do Not Bloom And Leaves Have Bugs Laying Orange Eggs On Undersides

Question From: Saint Adolphe, Manitoba, Canada
Q: My rose bush has a few problems: one my new solid blooms start nice then droop and don't open at all & # 2 I have some bugs laying orange eggs all under my leaves, Help.

A: Boytrytis blight is most likely the cause of the bud droop. A fungicide is the answer. The eggs are from some sort of bug. If you lived in the U.S. I would recommend Actinovate for the blight and an azadiractin based product such as AzaMax for the bug eggs. Both are OMRI list and safe for the environment. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
