New rose help

Hello everyone. I planted a rose about a month ago. It was perFelt when I bought and planted it, but in the last few days a few leaves have started drooping and turning brown. I’m watering it every other day and it’s on a west facing fence.
Here are pictures, I really hope some of you experts can advise me ,

    Water the roots not the leaves. Water drops on leaves in sun often cause brown patches.
    Just pick off the affected ones as the plant looks healthy.

    Thank you K67, I’ll be more careful with the watering!

    Yes, direct the water at the roots, did you add compost or micorrhizal fungi when you planted it? Gives them a good start, not sure where you are but we havent had any rain for ages, and newly planted, everything needs plenty of water.  We planted a new rose, in 2018, not realising we wouldnt have any rain for 3 months, it didnt look good at all, wasnt sure about it last year, today (literally) its in full bloom and looking fantastic

    Hi Nanny Beach, yes we did all that, i've always wanted a climbing roses but I know from my grandad (long time passed away), who had a whole garden full of roses how fraught with danger roses could be!!. We live in Yorkshire, no rain at all. I'm watering it everyday and feeding once a week, is that reasonable?
