Answer: Hi Margaret,
I wouldn’t be too concerned at this stage. It will take time for the roses to develop a good, strong root system. It would be best to prune back those stems that are showing signs of dieback. If the cow manure was well rotted, that wouldn’t be a problem for the roses. When watering, mix up a solution of seaweed extract and water in well around the root system. This product will stimulate the roots of the plants and keep them growing strongly. When the roses show signs of producing new growth, fertilise with Dynamic Lifter Plus Organic Based Flower Food. I am sure your roses will give you a beautiful summer display.
