dieback on grafted canes...what is up with that
Hello. I've been so busy in the garden. Getting this thing going is a real chore but very rewarding.
I've been looking at my grafted roses...those from last year and those from this year on Huey. There is a lot of browning on the canes and dieback. Serious borer action too.
The roses I ordered on multiflora and fortuniana don't have those issues...the graft seems so much "prettier"? It is really not noticeable at all.
I think perhaps I didn't plant them deep enough? The graft is just above the ground.
Lots of browning.
The multiflora grafteds seem much more vigorous (perhaps they are just more vigorous roses?).
Any advice appreciated.
