    I made a batch of this a few weeks ago, when my roses first started showing signs of 'something'. I'm not sure it was a fungus, but it definitely wasn't bugs! The spray seems to have limited the damage, and prevented any spreading. The leaves that had the problem still look the same, but it has not spread.
