    I give them Expert Gardener fertilizer from Walmart and spray with Malathion once a week to keep the aphids at bay.

    I need to prune my knockout yellow rose bush (used to look like a small tree) bc there was dieback from last winter. First time that happened! Blooming great, but looks shaggy on top.

    I lost 2 hybrid teas this year. My K.O.s were planted last year and came back well. Aphids did a good amount of damage. Fed them as soon as the good weather stuck around, mulched them and they are doing well.

    Didn't think the aphids would touch the K.O. roses but guess I was wrong. So now its a weekly aggressive spray treatment to keep them doing well so they can continue to establish themselves.

    if anyone comes along later to read this thread...

    when transplanting many plants it helps to make sure that the roots are roughly balanced with what is up above as you don't want the stems and leaves at the top to put more demand upon the roots than what they can supply. and when moving a plant you are disrupting many of the fine root hairs where much of the water and nutrients are coming from (along with the soil community around the roots). so to prune it back up top is the basic step you want to do.

    there are different types of plants and so different types of pruning for them.

    roses (as mentioned elsewhere in this thread) may be grafted onto different root stock so you need to make sure you don't prune off the grafted on part (but if it is dead anyways then you'll need to replace the whole plant if the rootstock blooms aren't acceptable).

    if you have a lot of aphid problems use biological controls or other methods. poisons don't solve the problem and they create other problems over the longer term.

    We certainly have no remose over pruning the roses as they are better than ever. They will get the same pruning in the spring going forward.

    I agree Jack. Most people don't prune their roses hard enough and they get all full of criss-crossing branches and diseased canes, just an ugly mess.

    Alex,
    We are "old school" and do everything around the house ourselves. Theresa is out there early in the morning tending her flowers and I do the yard and garden. I just finished mowing in this heat and I am soaking wet. Gawd, this is AWFUL!!
