Hi My Rose "London Bridge" has had a bad attack from Greenfly, I got some spray and drenched it , Greenfly have gone now but the leaves have started to turn brown on the edges and some have fallen off?? I am concerned as I have only had it a few weeks and it looks to be about to flower? I have given it a Blood and Bone feed, what else can I do?? Connie

Hey Adam, I was just reading your post and I thought I would offer you some advice. :) I know one of the best ways to help prevent blackspot is to supplement your soil, and I found a really good website with organic and conventional soil supplements, so you don't have to use the crappy chemical stuff if you don't want to. Check it out, it's www.kelp4less.com. They also have pretty great prices, and I found one blog that recommended using alfalfa meal, bone meal, blood meal, and rock phosphate - they have all of these available - hope this helps!!!
