Rose Revival

Category: Village Square | Posted: Tue Jun 10, 2008 7:14 pm

Hallelujah!!
The roses are coming back! I recently cut back four roses infected with Black Spot. I used a systemic fungicide on emerging leaves and they appear to be thriving, nary a spot - out, out, darn spot. One even has tiny buds with blooms, unbelievable. I am watching them carefully. I would like an organic solution to the problem, as I use as little spray as possible. I just had to save my babies.

Congratulations on your success! I trust we'll get to see your babies once they bloom?

My roses tend to get black spot around about now. Being an organic gardener all I do is nip of the affected leaves as soon as they show the first signs of the dreaded spot. All of them thrive in my garden so I must be doing something right I suppose.
