Q.

Leaves on rose bushes are turning brown

The leaves on my rose bushes are turning brown at the edges and rolling on on themselves. Why is that? I've checked the plants but can't find any disease or infection. Can you tell me how to stop that?

If it has been real hot where you are or if there is some reflected sunlight that really beats down on the rosebushes, that could be causing this. When it is real hot out the rosebush has a hard time getting enough moisture to the outer edges of the leaves and bloom petals, thus they burn and get crispy. Or perhaps some weed spray drifted over onto the roses foliage and is causing this issue.
