Blackspot in CA?

Maureen JandaApril 3, 2005

I'm new to minis, and I see many of you write that many (or most) of them must be sprayed for blackspot. I'm in coastal Southern California, have had full-sized roses for years and have never had blackspot, just lots of PM. Should I expect to see it on my new minis? What do you spray with?

Well it could be you get PM and we get BS. I rarely see PM. It's a climate thing so I'd just keep doing what you're doing and be happy you don't get BS.

The treatment for black spot is usually the same for anthracnose though.....
