I moved here 18 month ago and am a keen novice gardener and had a numerous
of plants and shrubs from roses to privets and hebies and last year i spent seeing what would grow in my little garden of a 20FT X 20FT and watching the sun.
As the season progressed i noticed that my roses had black spot and rusting on the leaves so off i toddled to the garden center and i bought some fungus control for roses and ornamental plants, i applied it as instructed on the lable and to no avail the rust and the black spot was still there.
So then one of my gardening friends said to dig plenty of mulch into the soil and leave it over winter to which i did so and guess what it back so in march i dug all the roses out as i thought they were diseased and then treated the soil once more but the honey suckle and the plum tree are now showing signs of the fungus with yellowing leaves on the plum tree and on the fruit it prduced so ive picked these off (see pic) and the honeysuckle is yellowing and premerturing dropping leaves please help thank you
