Dec 11, 2007
Deciding to switchover to organic rose gardening can put anyone in a dilemma over which products must be used to get maximum success. One option is that you buy over the counter products available at your nearest garden and lawn outlet, the other is that you whip up few home remedies to create your dream rose garden.

Please consider the following commonly used home remedies. With the help of these solutions, your affair with organic rose gardening will become an inexpensive and easy one.

1. Getting around the problem of Aphids

A very regular problem faced by almost every rose gardener is the aphid attack. These are tiny, plump, pear shaped insects with a soft body and little tubes known as cornicles. Aphids are fond of younger plants and can be commonly seen feeding on leaves and shoots of the new plants. Aphids can be found on the undersides of the leaves and they usually feed in colonies. Once they have gained a stronghold, the leaves begin to curl around them. These small bugs can be fatal for your roses if left without any action.

A lot of gardeners put their organic rose gardening dream to early death because of these small creatures forcing them to make use of pesticides. However, one should know that the aphid problem can be countered organically with two easy remedies.

Simple Soap Remedy

Two tablespoons of flakes of soap

Two liters of lukewarm water

Put soap flakes in water and treat the infested areas directly with this solution every five-seven days. You must go easy with the soap flakes as too much of it can cause burns to the leaves of plant. This remedy also takes care of the whiteflies and the spider mites.

Spray made of Garlic Oil

Cloves (minced garlic): 10 -15 nos.

Mineral Oil: 2 tablespoons

Water: 600 millilitre

Dish Soap (Liquid): 1 tablespoon

Put Garlic into mineral oil for a period of 24 hours. Strain the garlic out of mineral oil and add 600 ml of water with 1 tablespoon of liquid soap. Mix all of these properly and spray it on your rose plants. As with Simple Soap Remedy, this also helps you get rid of whiteflies and spider mites.

2. Black Spot Remedy

Black spot is a type of fungus that often gives sleepless nights to many rose gardeners. This attacks only the roses and leaves unpleasant black spots on the rose plant leaves. Let's look at a home-made solution commonly used by many gardeners to get rid of black spots without employing fungicides.

Home Made Solution for Black Spots and Mildew

Baking Soda: 1 tablespoon

Water: 1 liter

Soap Flakes: 1 tablespoon

Put baking soda in a liter of warm water. Mix soap flakes to help the solution to cling to the leaves. Cut the infected leaves and follow it up with spraying the top and bottom of leftover leaf surfaces to check the disease.

Bringing up your rose garden in an organic way can be a very satisfying experience as it not only helps in nurturing beautiful roses, but is also an environment friendly method. Employ these easy tips to free your roses from the day-to-day garden infections.
