Very pretty. There is a special spray for mildew on roses I can't remember the name of it though. I wouldn't have it near to your other plants till you get the mildew killed it will spread and pretty quickly too.

I used a mixture of Neem oil and it worked great for me.

Nice color. I mixed water and dishwasher soap. Worked great for my roses. Avoid water roses in the evening.

Simply cut/trim the sick parts and they will flourish at no time. Bayer 3-1(something like) would take care of that also.

I love going to Lowe's, they always have clearance/markdown price. I grab a Hoya curtisii for 3 (14.95) regular price and those hydrangea topiary regular price $34.99 got two for 8.75 each.

Good find.

I've tried bayer..don't like it I bought a fertilizer from bayer, it said it would protect my plants from bugs, it didn't, plus I had a hard time even opening the product. , 'Safe Garden' organic spray works better it has neem oil in it, Oh and I already pruned away the infected branches & will be trating the bush once a week forawhil....this rose was in the clearance/marked down items.

Picked up 5 of the 1 gallon China Girl Hollies at Lowes reduced to $3. each about 3 weeks ago. When I got them home noticed there was either two or three in each pot to make a nice large plant, I divided them up and now have 12 nice starter in 1 gallon pots. There doing great. I've noticed many of their 1 gallon things has multiple plants in a pot. Probably from tissue culture and they stick 2-3 in hoping one will live plus it's marketable sooner as a larger plant. Love the discount isle at Lowes.
