    I have 6 Roses in my garden. Two are on a bank about 3 meters apart. I pruned them back at the end of Spring due to seaward. Both grew new shoots but Subsequently the leaves are curling.

    Any thoughts as what to do?

    It might be Sawfly possibly?

    Have you looked at the underside of the leaves?

    The ground looks very dry so they possibly need a good deep watering. Have you fed them at all this year?

    Hello Scotty. We had sawfly that curled the leaves on some of the roses in our garden some years ago. I seem to remember that I unfurled the leaves and from memory there was a little egg stuck to some of them. I think I just removed the leaves. It might not be that though as I am far from an expert and have only really started growing roses again in the last couple of years.

    The garden in the last house wasn't really that suited. Hopefully someone else will be able to help.

    Anything but if you've looked then it could be what @shiney has said it does look very dry perhaps needs a lot of water.

    They have been regularly fed and get regularly watered. It’s defo not because of lack of water but thanks for the input.

      I just remembered I have a rose book called the rose expert but it's very old from 1980 and i found this, it doesn't look like same but it could be.
