Garden NOTES

In the ROSE GARDEN

Keep treating your roses for downy mildew during cool, damp periods with preventative products. Deadhead regularly to promote flowering and keep bushes neat. Only deadhead repeat-flowering shrub roses that don’t produce hips. In cool regions, apply a low-nitrogen/ high-potash fertiliser (3:1:5), or water in potassium sulphate to harden them off for winter.
