my name is Roy, my enquiry isif you can help,my red rose flowering ,to buds are full but they are not opening they just rotting, canyou perhaps give me an answer as to what my problem is thanking you kindly .



Need a photo really- could be powdery mildew, could be you've had a lot of rain at the wrong time and its affected the flowerbuds - some varieties of rose are more susceptible to rain damage than others.
