I have grown roses for fifty years and have never had a year like this one! The poor roses are keeling over with blackspot - the whole shrub, not just the leaves - despite annual application of sprays and care in the clearance of affected leaves. I reckon I have lost a good two thirds of them already, and I live in a 'Rose Cottage', so it's a great pain!I am in my seventies and could not manage to replace all the soil in order to plant new ones. Can anyone suggest some really resistant roses, if I could find new spaces for them?
