    Hi all,
    One of my Rose plants leaves have holes in them. Plant is good with buds and flowers but leaves are damaging with these holes in them. I don't know reasons but it is now spreading to other rose plants too which are next to that plant.
    I would like to try with natural remedies before using pesticides. Please provide some natural remedies to get rid of those holes and protect my rose plant. Enclosing images of that rose plant leaves.

    Spraying gently neam oil water spray late evening at the bottom of leaves. Repeat it at suitable intervals for few days. My mom was doing this and it was effective. You see the large deep coloured roses. Hybrids produce more tough and healthy stalks and varying colours.

    Onion peel soaked in overnight and next day use that water to spray at the bottom of leaves of roseplant. This too might work. I have not tried but read in atamil magazine.

    Talking of roses, mind gets transported to moghal gardens of Rashtrapathi Bhavan india . Besides tulips and other herbal plants & flowers, one can see huge varities of over hundred different hues ofrises during the season that commences in February.

    Looks like something is eating your leaves. The culprits are usually slugs, pill bugs or pincher bugs. You could try waking up early before the sun hits the roses and check under the leaves and at the base of the plant. You might catch the culprits red-handed. If the numbers are not very high, a thorough spraying with a hose will shake the bugs loose. Then you can scoop them up with gloved hands and bag them. You could either dispose them off or compost them. The other alternative is neem oil spray, or Sluggo. Sluggo is ostensibly for slugs but works really well on pill bugs and pincher bugs too.

    It is difficult to mix oil with water together.
    I got to know we can mix One gallon of water with 1 tablespoons of neem oil and one tea spoon liquid soap. I will try.
    I can do this. Thank you Sir for your suggestions.

    I can wake up early before sunrise but I may not catch bugs. Today I added one and a half tablespoons of baking soda with one table of dish soap.and one table spoon of vegetable oil. I added that mixture into one gallon of water and spray it on rose leaves.
    I'm thinking to buy neem oil spray. Thank you, Gauri for the suggestions.:smile:
