My roses have been a bit neglected over the past 12 months but even with that I am surprised at the disease that us evident. Leaves are malformed and diseased. On the same bush we have long elongated leaves as well as standard rose shaped leaves. Leaves are also discoloured. There is some black spot and evidence of aphids as well. Appreciate any advice, Thanks so much

That isnt a weed at the bottom but rather agastache (I think) ground cover to hide the awful pencil shale in which I have to carve out a garden. The whole arrangement is about 4 years old and this is the first year its being unco-operative. Is ground cover a problem? Thanks for your advice

I would say it is as it competes for moisture and food and harbors pests and diseases.

Yep, roses are selfish and hate underplanting, avs0020.
Also everything has probably grown up and closed in around the roses in the past few years. This closure could be preventing airflow which is required to reduce moulds and mildews.
