    Black spot on rose in garden 15th Jun 17 at 2:23 PM
    Hi
    I've got rather bad black spot on a pretty old looking rose.


    However, i've got a bit of a dilemma i want to put in several new roses. Should I just cut down the diseased rose to the roots? Dig it out or treat it.
    I don't want the new roses to get contaminated.
    Any advice? I don't know a lot about roses.

    Treat it. Black spot is everywhere in the air so no point removing the rose, your new ones will eventually get it without treatment, some varieties are more prone to it than others

    You can help by clearing up old rose leaves nad removing very badly infected leaves
