I sprayed with a baking soda & dish soap home remedy this morning. I just got back home & there was black spots all over every foliage there was left on the plant. what do I do now?

Black Spot can be a very tough customer. Once it hits and hits hard, the home remedies can fall short of what is needed. I recommend going to Amazon.com and buy some Mancozeb fungicide, it will stop black spot in its tracks. You could also buy a product called Milstop for a more Earth Friendly option. Both are a bit costly but do go a long way. If you have other rose growers in your area, perhaps they would be willing to split the cost with you.
