Hi, I have a Rose Scarlet rose growing up my garage, it seems thick and growing well but it is showing a white fungus just below and covering the buds, and also the stem seems to be swelling into a lump just below bud in some areas. Last year I had similar problem and so have given thick mulch, have fed well and sprayed with fungus and Uncle Tom. It was not showing any symptoms at start of growth but this is now spreading.
Can anyone tell me what is causing this and what I can do? It is a lovely rose, that gives a good display and I really want to save this. Thank you.
