I have the same problem. Over-watering is not the case.
I have three climbing rose plants in the small townhouse yard, and only one of them loses buds: looks like they were snapped off the stems, some of the buds are completely intact, others appear to have been chewed upon. And leaves turn yellow and fall off. But there are no visible insects. The bush still had a lot of flowers - totally healthy looking. But when the blooming was over, end of May, there were almost no leaves left on that bush. Just bare limbs like it were already November...
Now, I am thinking: this bush is sitting quite close to a diseased lilac (powdery mildew). Could it be that it picked up from the lilac? Although the appearance of the rose leaves does not show any mildew, they just become yellow and dry up.
I cut down the lilac, and am thinking of removing it all together because it hasn't been blooming for 3 years - just grows up like mad and turns whitish by the end of May, and no common remedies work with it. But I don't really know if the lilac causes the problem with the rose bush...

What is wrong with my rose plant?
is this some kind of disease
my rose buds are falling off the stalk just turns as though someone has bit it and the bud discolours to slight yellow to brown and falls off.
Even one of the rose which bloomed was brown and spoiled from inside
Do i need to buy some tonic for this?
Will my rose surviive?
