20 MIN­UTES TO SPARE

Gardeners' World - - Flowers -

Look for and gather up any leaves that have fallen from roses in­fected with blackspot. Yel­low leaves with black patches on the up­per sur­face are a sure sign of the fun­gus, which spends the win­ter on fallen leaves. Re­mov­ing them from the gar­den will help to stop the spread of the dis­ease. De­stroy or bin the leaves, rather than com­post­ing which would just re­in­fect your gar­den in the fu­ture.
