Roses

"A rose is a rose is a rose." - Gertrude Stein

Couple photos of the rose plants in my garden. I planted the Jackson and Perkins bare root roses and the first bloom is up!. The plants are struggling with the pests - aphids and some sort of green caterpillars :( . After intensive research on google, I sprayed some soap water and seems like 50% of aphids died. I am looking for other options. If you have any good solution to get rid of aphids - please share.

I heard that putting expired tablets under the ground, near the roots of the plant gets rid of all the pests and insects. Not 100% sure though..
