I have noticed that my roses are suffering badly from black spot... except the one growing next to a rosemary bush. Given that rosemary has medicinal qualities for people, is there any evidence that it could be used to counteract plant diseases too?

No idea, maybe you've found a preventative, lol. In reality, some varieties of rose are much more prone to blackspot than others - plants of this type need regular spraying during summer to keep it at bay.
