Checklist For Summer
•Control thrips, aphids, cucumber beetles and spider mites on roses by using a recommended insecticide or miticide. Also continue blackspot control for highly susceptible varieties by using a recommended fungicide at seven- to 10-day intervals.
•When irrigating, water the soil area thoroughly. Try to irrigate less often, but irrigate well each time. Light, overhead sprinkling is not the best way to water.
