Newbie with rose issues
I'm new to roses and trying to figure out how to take care of them. This is a Firefighter rose and the leaves seem to be drying out for me, at least that is what it looks like. I posted a picture and hopefully you can see what I am talking about. Even the blooms seem to be drying out. This rose did have aphids on it last week which I took care of with soap and have yet to see them come back. Could the soap have done this to the rose?
My maintenance for the roses is weekly watering, shooting for about one inch. I'm shooting for monthly fertilizing with soybean meal at a rate of 1 cup per rose. I'm due for a fertilizing next weekend. I debate adding in a foliar feeding as well.
Thank you in advance.
