    Without a photo it's very hard to know what the issue is with your roses, Mary. But if it is indeed a fungus, there are fungicides designed to treat those issues on roses.

    Thank you Douglas. I'll try to get a pic posted. I treated them last week with Bayer 2in1. Will treating them with a fungicide be too much at this time?

    Mary, you'll need to check the label on the Bayer. There should be an indication about how long to wait before applying anything else.

    Bayer 2 in 1 works systemically, through the roots, and is a fertilizer with an insecticide. Bayer 3 in 1 has the fungicide too. I think you have to keep using it for it to work correctly and eradicate the fungus. To help keep new fungus from spreading

    Have a ??? on the amount of vinegar to use for black spot. Is the 1/4 teaspoon in a quart of water the correct measurements? It seems like so little vinegar for the amount of water?

    make shure that when you dead head or prune knockout roses that you remove these clippings or you will re-introduce the infection back in the area again
