Black Spot

Thanks Dave for that warning will stick to the Rose Clear.  I have taken the advice of picking off and picking up infected leaves too so will see how it goes now.  The bushes that have given so much pleasure over the summer are now looking really sad.

Thanks to all who have replied.  Someone suggested Jeyes Fluid but I have no idea how much to dilute it and I am concerned that it could harm bulbs that are planted between the rose bushes.

I have a big Aubergine in the greenhouse the first aubergine is small and dull but it now has about 8 aubergines which, although quite small, are healthy and shiny.  When should I pick these?
