    If possible photos would be helpful. One close up of the problem, and one showing the overall rose in situ?
  • Ok i will take some now

    Hmm looks rather like weedkiller damage, is that a possibility?

    More info here if you scroll down to the bit about residual weedkillers:

  • Not unless someone as done it malicious like my neighbour as i av problems with them what can i do
  • My beautiful foxglove  that i have planted near is also dying

    One thing that I would do is loosen up the ties so that the canes are less horizontal and more angled upwards, especially the ones that are going down below the horizontal.  That way the sap in the canes can flow a bit more easily.  Is there good drainage where it is planted?
  • Yes very good drainage

    It may recover with some TLC, I had a rose like that and it did eventually start to put out healthy foliage.  
  • Thanku
