I've succumbed to rose clear, so we'll see how it goes but everyday there's been a flower head on the floor in the morning! !!! 

this one this morning is a freshly opened bloom and I don't know if you can see from the picture but seems to be a straight cut ! could there be any other explanation than human interference as I really don't want to believe that a neighbour could do such a thing ! (altho there is a very strange boy next door and only a gate between us - golly I sincerely hope not him) 

Is it just me?

thanks LB4 can live with that ! (no won't use jeyes fluid , not least cos have put vine weevil nematodes in there - just threatening it , get it to behave am fed up with it!) so I may actually succumb to getting rose clear tho ...... it can have one more year and if doesn't get better , it may have to go

I've just watered my rose and there's all these tiny crawly things .... tiny mms only but all came to the top and started to wiggle around. the rose has blacks pot and is almost denuded of leaves. I feel like giving up tbh !!!! any help greatly appreciated before I resort to drowning it in jeyes fluid. also , and these may be to blame , the rose heads are just dropping off , it seems that someone has come along in the night and cut them off as it's such a clean straight cut but buds and heads on the floor. hope someone can help me out 

My flowers ..
