Black spot on rose leaves - help how do I rid?

I have found that using a solution of three finely crushed aspirin tablets mixed thoroughly into one teaspoon of dish soap then added to four gallons of water and sprayed liberally on the tops and bottoms of leaves when the first sign occurs, eliminates this problem and it will deal with rust problems too"

This solution releases a chemical in the plant called "harpin" which increases the plant's immune system, similar to commercial products, and the aspirin solution costs mere pennies! the only drawback is that this has to be applied every week.

Is it possible to have too many worms???



Take a look and see that they are all on the top few inches and there are good worm casts just below. (enjoy. Not for the squeamish)

I think I had more in my original photo.

Did you get it from your grand dad as we are all 27 on here.

That was back in 1979, Feb 7.

Nothing bad entered my head Judith 5. So please do not think that way of me. I can often sound as blunt as a breeze block on here. Especially when trying to put things into text but there is never any harm or malice meant. ( that is why we have icons )

I am still very impressed that this works, especially when we would just throw then away. 

I feel like I have been missing stuff for years and i'm a bit excited about it.

Yes Welshonion.

There is something niggling me about this that I can't quite put my finger on.

More research needed.

They are trying to hide things here. The more I look into it, the worse it is sounding.

Nematodes work in the damp warm ground/soil. 

The snails only work over the top of the soil. That is why they are not so affective with snails, but they do pick them up in their travels. 

This is why I like to spray the sludge through a fine membrane, Above the soil and try to get into all the corners, especially when it is wet for a few days.
