    Got Blackspot on roses? Get milk! Professor Jeff Gillman has conducted extensive research on Blackspot remedies. A spray composed of one part milk and two parts water is the best answer to the disease. This simple solution, if applied weekly, controls Blackspot as well as any synthetic fungicide, including Chlorotalonil. Why does milk work against Blackspot?  Well, nobody knows for sure. Gillman thinks it is the  lactoferrin that milk contains. Lactoferrin also helps to fight diseases in people.
