Hey Suzanne:

Sorry to hear about your Hansa rose. "Weed and Feed" is definitely a
no-no in lawns near roses as the rose roots can pick up the 2,4-D
herbicide in this product. I have seen plenty of "accidents". Hopefully
the rose will survive but it will take at least a couple of years to
recover from the herbicide.

In the meantime keep Dan in the doghouse, feed him regularly the food
that you mentioned and take him out for some excercise but don't let him
pee on the roses as that will be another story on the dangers of rose
fertilization.

I think he killed Hansa, I really do!
Hansa is in her 3rd year here in Hades and was looking wonderful and I was
looking forward to some nice fat hips this year.  While I was in the
shower, he snuck outside and spread "Weed-n-Feed" all over the lawn!!!
This was on Friday (May 2nd) and Hansa was just fine on Sunday (May 4th).
Today, (May 5th), I went to check on her and discovered that ALL the
leaves are curling up and dying!  We had a bunch of the usual Hillbilly
acid rain all weekend.  I figure, the rain has soaked the poison down to
the roots of HANSA and she is croaking!  I am very angry and Dan will stay
in the doghouse until someone can help me figure out a way to save Hansa!
Instead of his usual 5 course dinner, I gave Dan a bowl of Science Diet
and for Dessert, a cup of IAMS!  He needs your help in saving Hansa from
his evil deed!  He promises to do whatever you guy's advise!  If Hansa
croaks, I am getting him a collar and a neutering!

My sympathy...as Bugman says, it takes a long time to recover, but right
now...flush,flush,flush with water. If you are desperate enough you can
dig it up,flush the roots and replant! The idea is to rid the roots and
soil of the poisons.My SO won't go near the roses unless specifically
asked to do so...for very good reasons! Hades hath no fury like a
rosarian with a ruined rose!

Suzanne, please, please, stop short of this last drastic measure! Hansa
is replaceable--Dan's balls are not.

You can say that again, Sub!
I have now switched Dan over to canned cat food!
I tried to post to you earlier from zippo, but it came out all messed up,
don't know why, so I am posting this from rgr.
Do you really think I should dig up Hansa?  She's pretty big and I would
worry about root damage.
I'll go ahead and flush with water, but I wish there was something else I
could do.  Do you think heavy doses of fish emulsion would help?

"Suzanne, please, please, stop short of this last drastic measure!  Hansa

Well, Heather!  Ummmn...uh....ummm!  Ahem!!!
    Fact is, Dan is still on the canned catfood in the doghouse and he is
staying there!  I just discovered that "Bonica," who is 3 feet downhill
from Hansa is also croaking!  Do you know that I have never seen
"rose-hips" and THIS was the year I have been waiting for?  Do you know
that I purchased these bareroots 3 years ago from Witherspoon and they
cost me $30.00 plus shipping?  Do you know that they were the ONLY roses
in my Garden to escape, unscathed, the deep freeze in April?  Do you know
that I have 4 kids and my breeding days are over?  And last, but not
least, do  you know that I can go to the Hades Wal-Mart and get balls for
$2.99?  Nuf said!

No fertilizer until she's recovered a bit. Compare this to food
poisoning in a human. If this is a big bush it might be more traumatic
digging it up, I'd flush it out really well and all those downhill from
it also. My sympathy.:^(

Well, ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  Our nersury guy said that the flush, flush,
flush method is the best method, but it will take some tome for the
plants to discover.  At the very least Dan should be punctured by at
least half of the ***les from both bushes.

Suzanne, these are all terrible afflictions. All I'm saying is, you may
miss the testosterone in your old age.

Hello,  I'm a lurker, but enjoyed the posting about Dan in the Dog
house...just wanted you to know that Testosterone is also available for
purchase!...My husband had a kidney transplant and wears testosterone
patches, so all will not be lost.....

Laurel, now that you mention this I remember reading about these
patches! I bet they're more than $2.99 at Wal-Mart though . . . Now I am
being completely serious . . . I did not know there was a
kidney-testosterone connection. What is it?
