SPOT OF BOTHER

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

The main rea­son why black spot on roses re- in­fects new leaves in spring is be­cause the fallen leaf lit­ter around the plants brims with this de­struc­tive dis­ease. It pays to rake up and col­lect ev­ery bit of this deadly de­bris and cart it well away. Af­ter­wards, prune the roses and then spray the branches and the soil around them with Bordeaux mix­ture.
