A Failure :(

Post by rafique » October 5th, 2014, 2:51 pm

This summer and monsoon did not prove good for my roses. Numbers of roses died in short duration of one month. This set back started from the last month's torrential rains. A die back or fungus diease spread like an epidemic and effected the many plants and then plants started dying one after the other. To control the disease i started to spray fungacide but it did not proved effective, may be i was late in it.

Following are thes some of diasters images. Although this is the matter of embarrasment for me but i feel i shoulld share my failure too with my forum friends.

Hammad Bhai you are very right about the weather but there is a definite and major contribution of negligence on my part too.
Lets see what will happen to remainings?
Looking farward and wishing good roses of yours and Umar Bhai.
