Hello everyone wondering if anyone has experience with rose rosette disease? These roses just started having abnormal growth and deformed buds and I’m thinking that could be it. They are David Austin Roses ‘Queen of Sweden’ and ‘ James Galway’ and this is their second season in my garden.

It's too early to give you a definite answer but it could possibly be the start of rose rosette. Prune out the affected branches and either burn or put them in a bin. Don't put them in a composter if you have one.

It may be an idea to feed them to see if that helps to keep it at bay. The ground also looks very dry so a good watering at the base of the plant/s on a regular basis would be good too. Roses are hungry and thirsty plants so feeding them two or three times a year as well as watering regularly helps to keep them healthy.
