Q.How To Help A Stressed Rose
Hello! I bought a couple rose bushes for my patio earlier this spring. Things were going very well at first until some aphids took over them. I have tried neem oil and ladybugs. I have gotten rid of most on one plant, but the other is not doing as well. The leaves are starting to turn yellow, brown, and fall off. How can I stop this process and get back to growing green again? I water regularly in the morning and have not fertilized since beginning treatment one the aphids about a month ago.

I would cut off any severely infected growth, as well.
