Friends have magnificent Madame Gregoire Staechlin climbers which perform in profusion every spring depite benign neglect. BUT my (2) are prone to black spot, leggy and with rather sparse foliage - one over an arch, a second against an East wall. Any suggestions of what I should do to help them to find a bit more energy and health?

I've had good luck with Mill Magic Mix. My roses have been much healthier since I've been using it.  I also give climbers and ramblers a top dressing of composted manure in the Fall. Lots of organics in the soil really help.


It could also just be the roses you have. Sometimes there are several different "clones" of a rose in commerce and some versions are better than others. Perhaps you could ask your friends for some cuttings and try rooting them for yourself.

An eastern wall is not good for this rose. It needs its full complement of sunlight - 6 hours daily or more.

Both peonies are in the data base. Did you change the search to "Peonies"?

We are not yet quite complete on Clematis. The two you mention have been added, thank you.
