Hi All

Bought drift roses because they are supposed to be disease free but of the 12 or so I bought about 10 have Crown Gall I just found out

Has anyone else experienced this and is there anyway I can save the plants.
thanks in advance for your help

I experience similar issues with the Flower Carpet series here. Both are descended from The Fairy, which is also highly susceptible to crown gall in my climate. With both The Fairy and Flower Carpets, it frequently progresses to the point of actually killing the plants. I don't know of a treatment any more successful than Gallex/Galltrol. Kim

Here is a link that might be useful: Gallex - Galltrol

Kim, I didn't know those roses were descended from 'The Fairy.' That's interesting.
