i have black spots on the leaves of my roses any ideas what i can do other than spray soapy water



Make sure you clear around the base of the plant any fallen leaves and old flower petals buds etc. Put them in a bag in the bin or burn them dont add them to the compost heap. Give them a bit of a feed and fingers crossed.

If the leaves are turning yellow with black spots, it could be a fungus. I get something from B&Q called Fungus Fighter. You have to remove all the damaged leaves and spray the good ones. It's best to use it as a preventative throughout the summer if you know your roses are prone to get it.
