View Full Version : Getting rid of black spot on roses...Help

I would have posted this on Geek Central, but I thought our Gardners in the bunch wouldnt be checking the computer nerd forum, so i posted here. :hmmm:

My favorite rose bush has came down with a case of blackspot.
(see example below)


Any of the gardeners out there have a solution for this. She was a beauty last year standing over 6 foot tall. Now all of a sudden her leaves are turning yellow and black spots are occuring. I have read alittle about it, but I need a product ot something to stop this onslaught.

Get a shovel and an axe.

Or gas and a match, either way.

That's all I've got. I'm only good at killing plants. Except weeds and crabgrass. I can't kill them.

pee on them

It won't get rid of the blackspot but you'll feel better about it all.

Sorrry to hear about that. But I gotta brag on my rose bushes. Last week for Mother's day, I was lucky to get 1/2 dozen decent buds for Mom, let alone Grandma. Then yesterday it bloomed like a MoFo.

What you have is a fairly common fungus. Go to any nursery (or even one of the Wal/K-marts) and look for a product that kills the fungus. The product label will have a picture of a rose on it, it's not hard to find. It comes in powder form, IIRC.

Hey Phobia, Would it hurt to put this on all my rosebushes, or should I only use it on the one that is affected by black spots. Thanks.

Fertilome Broad Spectrum Fungicide
