Recognise rose blackspot

Purple-black blotches on on the upper surface of rose leaves, with yellowing of the leaf,  could be either black spot or rose rust, but generally black spot is the more common disease. Spores will survive on dead leaves, so collect and burn or brown-bin fallen leaves to remove sources of re-infection.
