Our roses are starting to bloom. We have a few different varieties. We have this bright peachy orange one.

My only problem is that some of our rose bushes are infested with aphids. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting rid of Aphids?

    Thank you for stopping by my journal. Your roses are fantastic and you have beautiful pups there. For aphids I was lucky and had lots of lady bugs, but a slight biodegradable dish soap and water solution sprayed on the leafs worked well too (I did 1 teaspoon soap to 500ml water). I picked up the Peatless Pots at our local greenhouse (bradford) maybe ask your local greenhouse for them they are really enjoyable thus far.

    Thanks, we have tried that and it’s made a big difference.
