Why are rose buds turning brown & dropping off when the plant looks healthy?
Rose plant looked very healthy with shiny leaves when I bought it. In spite of weekly spraying with 3--in-1 rose spray (insecticide, fungicide, black spot), it has now got totally brown buds that fall off & no new healthy buds. Leaves are still green. It has gotten plenty of rain this summer. What's wrong?
The amount of spraying could be too much and is having a negative effect upon the overall rosebush. Too much rain can actually cause the buds to get water logged, sort of rot, turn brown and fall off.
