They are this year's foliage. I planted it bare root last autumn and it has only started to grow.
I have sprayed all my roses 2 weeks ago and have fed them. I think I'm feeding the roses right as the other bare root rose I planted last autumn (Icerberg) is already producing flower buds!
I'm hoping someone can confirm if the leaves are indeed blackspot. So that I can nip it off and give the plant another dose of spraying while it is still manageable.
