Aphids on a 'Golden Showers' rose appear to be brown, not the usual Green or Blackfly. Non chemical solution to get rid of them please!




Still aphids though!
You could try spraying with diluted ecofriendly washing up liquid.

I had greenfly on my roses, then noticed the same brown aphids yesterday. so annoying. Luckily, we have had some ladybirds dotted around.

Hi Shirley thanks for the message - yes my Golden Showers does look like this. I will keep an eye out for aphids!

Ha ha, Rachelsmum, there's a blog about this Rose too, shows it from bud to bloom and finish. No more Aphids, I think the heavy rain saw them off!
