Various spot spots (black, phyllosticose, septoria spotting) appear, as a rule, in the middle of summer. The spots come in various colors and shapes, the leaves turn yellow and fall off. Spotting develops with increased soil moisture and air, a lack of potassium, an excess of nitrogen.

Control measures. In the spring when opening roses, all roses should be sprayed with phytosporin in a therapeutic dose (7 ml / l of water). In May, repeat the treatment with phytosporin solution, but in a lower concentration (3,5 ml / l), then after a week, if the temperature is above 12 ° C, spraying with gamair (1 tabl / 10 l), after another week - alirin (1 tab. / Xnumx l). Do the same in June and July. If infection still occurs, collect and burn all affected leaves. Continue treatment with phytosporin, but with a therapeutic dose, alternating with treatment with a joint solution of alirin and gamair (one tablet of each drug per 10 l of water).

It is recommended to treat the plant itself and the earth around it with copper-containing preparations, better phytosporin.

Mučnistaâ rosa appears more often with increased air humidity, with sharp fluctuations in day and night temperatures, with excessive nitrogen fertilization, and potassium deficiency in the soil. Leaves and young shoots are affected. First there is a white bloom, and then gray spots. The leaves curl, the buds are not disclosed.

Gray rot, or botrytis. The causative agent of gray rot is the fungus Botrytis cinerea, which affects about 200 various species of plants. In roses, flower buds with pedicels, the ends of young stems and leaves suffer from gray rot; in wet weather they are covered with a gray fluffy bloom. Diseased roses and most often varieties with light flowers are primarily susceptible to gray rot. The buds on the roses affected by botrytis do not open, rot and fall. Small brown specks appear on the petals, the leaves turn yellow and also fall.

The young roots of the cuttings are also affected by gray mold. Foci of infection persist in plant debris. Then the spores of the fungus spread insects and wind. Therefore, an undesirable neighbor for roses is, for example, horticultural strawberries, often suffering from gray rot. The disease appears on roses at thick plantings or if the rose garden is watered late in the evening and at high humidity.

To prevent root decay and improve the soil in May, place a tablet of glyocladin under each plant; try to repeat this procedure in August. Chemicals as a way to combat pests, use only when absolutely necessary.
