Hello, I bought a David Austin English Rose last spring, Lady Emma Hamilton, and it is not doing so well. It did great all last year, and started out really well this year. I pruned it down in early spring and it just SHOT back up, like tripled its size in about a month. There were a bunch of aphids on the new shoots at first, and I would either hand pick or spray them off with water, but I'm sure I didn't get them all. About a month ago it started looking funny. The top had really strong growth, that was kind of insane, really long canes coming out the top, but the bottom outside part started flopping over, like the stems were really weak. I've seen my Dahlias do this when they get top heavy, they'll flop over and then continue to grow along the ground and send new growth straight up. Same thing here. I also noticed some dark spots and yellowing on the leaves in the interior. It's basically created a big "hole" in the middle of my rosebush, and now 1/3 of my rose has really weak stems that are flopping down, with the roses and buds pointing straight at, or touching, the ground. Not so pretty. I thought the David Austin types were supposed to be some of the more disease resistant types? Does anyone know what is wrong with it and how I correct it? Organic methods first, if you don't mind. Here are some pics to clarify.
