Yet another yellow leaves question please with pics
This is my Livin Easy rose I've had planted now for a couple of years. The rose did great this spring with loads of new leaves and now has loads of buds, but...
now the leaves are yellowing and falling off! It seems to be centered in the "interior" regions of the bush from bottom to mid range.
The rose is on the northern side of my house but gets plenty of sun all day from about 10 am till about 6 or 7 pm.
I did fertilize it this spring with about 2 tbsp. of soil acidifier, a cup of bloodmeal, and a cup of muriate of potash (would have rather had potassium sulfate but couldn't find any). I did have a soil test done last year that indicated the need for potash.
Last week I did spray with just Bayer Disease control (not the 3 in 1 or 2 in 1).
It has been hot here with temps in the mid 80's so I have been keeping it watered via hose, but maybe not enough?
I am clueless as to why a perfectly healthy looking rose would start doing this.
