Aoa.
Izhar Sb one thing is missing in this Thread In particular and in whole forum in general.
There is a lot of discussion on keeping the foliage disease free but there is no discusion on how to keep its roots disease free as roses suffer alot from root related probelms that are not visible also like termites and ground insects.

Big mistake and I paid the price... my roses are just coming back from near death... I was using plastic tubs to keep the water from draining... it was very helpful during summers but even after the light pruning on 13th November I continued to water them daily (like summers) the water had no place to drain and within a week there was abrupt yellowing of leaves and dull foliage... I realised my mistake but the damage has been done... now I am almost one month late.. the roses are alhamdulillah recovering and hope they will be making good blooms by January end...

the root damage was severe, the brilliant pink iceberg rose started blooming in complete white form...

One survivor managed to bloom, though not as profusely as anticipated:
