A fascinating flower, full of meaning that symbolizes love, devotion, but also jealousy. Let’s talk about the rose that adorns our garden and gives us an intoxicating and enveloping scent.
An easy-to-grow flower that gives generous flowering in late spring and all summer long. Although there is no shortage of varieties that bloom in the winter months.
Unfortunately, this ease of cultivation is contrasted with a vulnerability to attack by fungi, parasites and diseases.
How to recognize this disease
A very dangerous disease for the roses in our garden is powdery mildew or white sickness. Easily recognizable, through a white patina that covers the flower. This disease is caused by a fungus that is transmitted very quickly, because it is carried by the wind.
Initially it manifests itself through small spots, and then develops covering the plant with a white patina. As a result, the leaves shrivel and turn yellow, the new buds do not grow and the plant perishes.

Powdery mildew is a disease that spreads very quickly. To prevent the problem from spreading and also affecting other plants, the areas affected by the disease must be eliminated. We also avoid water stagnation which can lead to the proliferation of fungi.
If the white disease is in the early stages, to avoid the spread, we can resort to a natural remedy. We need 1 liter of water and a couple of tablespoons of baking soda. Let’s prepare this mixture and spray it on all parts of the plant. The treatment will be carried out twice a week and on sunny days.
If, on the other hand, the white disease has spread and has affected all parts of the plant, we must necessarily resort to other more invasive remedies.
