Hi all,

I really liked Livin Easy BUT had to shovel prune because of bad blackspot in our no
spray garden!
LE got through our winters fine, grew fast, and LE bloomed well with 3+" bloom size...

The same over here and it got weaker every year and died.

It had blackspot in my garden as well. It died last year after a very, very cold winter in zone 6/5.

The final blow indeed came from a very cold winter too over here.

This is the third season in my garden, Zone 6b Switzerland and already showing signs of black spot - again!! I am going to make a habit of reading the member comments and not just the main page in future.

A very good intention! Sometimes ratings are a hint too.

So the statement in the description, that this rose is "very blackspot-resistent", can be referred to the garbage bin... or to the land of the fairy-tales.

I have to spray fungicide on all of my Hybrid Teas and Floribunda's here in hot humid florida. I can grow old Teas, Noisettes and some shrubs here without spraying, but I will continue to spray my HT's and FL's twice a month for unique and beautiful flowers .

What brand do u use of fungicide
Reply #11 of 11 posted 27 FEB 20 by Matthew 0rwat
It depends, In the cooler months I mix Daconil and Propaconizole together in one spray tank and apply it twice a month. In warmer weather I rotate with either Immunox or Theophanate Methyl, or Propaconizole mixed with Dithane. Rotation is key so blackspot doesn't develop resistance. My spray period is March through October. If we go through a hot and dry period, I usually quit spraying for that time since the warm and dry weather naturally reduces disease. I don't spray my OGRs or Shrub roses and they do fine. This program is for picky hybrid teas, like Peace, Brandy, Papa Meilland. I can grow Mr. Lincoln or floribundas like Valentine without spraying but I love yellos and orange long stemmed HTs as well

Hi all,

I'm trying a (own-root) Prairie Harvest rose here in our no spray Central Pa garden this year. So far this
rose has done very well in it's first season. No BS or PM... I'll report back at the end of next year...

Hi Jim,
I would like to know how your Own Root experiment went with PH. Did it flourish or sink like the Titanic?
