Save money growing roses by making your own pesticide and fertilizer.  Mix 1 cup of water with 6 garlic cloves and 3 tablespoons of cayenne.  Mix in your blender and then pour in a spray bottle.  Check your roses often to see if the leaves are damaged. Spray with this mixture to repel the insects or bugs eating them.

 

Save your egg shells, and spread them at the base of the plant to fertilize the soil.
