I live over the road from the beach. My standard roses are getting a burnt look on their flowers and leaves.

The roses are 3 years old. The first 2 years this didnt occur but maybe it was because they were lower than the fence. Can it be the salt wind or are they lacking in something? How do I look after them so that they look great in blossom rather than diseased.

Answer: Hi Kerryn,
It is quite possible that the rose blooms are being affected by the salt spray. All you can do is your best at this point. Make sure your roses are well watered and fed with a good quality rose fertiliser. Dynamic Lifter Plus Organic Based Flower Food would be a good one for you to try. Keep the moisture in around the root system by applying a mulch. Monthly applications of Nature’s Way Seaweed Booster will help to keep your roses strong and healthy. If you notice black spot on the roses, remove those leaves by hand and spray with a rose spray to keep those diseases at bay.
