Could it be bugs eating the leaves and buds off my roses ?
I'm not a good organic gardener because I use Immunox spray and Bayer 1 2 3 Systemic. I've tried everything to keep whatever is eating up my plants. This year is the very worst. Two years ago I quit using Fish Emulsion, and other organics except worm castings. That dirt has now worms probably because of the Bayer killing everything. Did put down a nice layer of mulch not bark a few weeks ago. Over watering is not a problem only usually once a week and the leaves that are there look pretty good. I see no ants or snails just a few red spiders and webs.
Wish someone out there would come take a peek !
