I am new to gardening. I bought an Eden Climber. Planted it. It seems to be doing just fine except for the leaf spots. I assume it is a fungus. How do I treat this? Or should I remove the discolored leaves? Your suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you

You need to use a fungicide recommended for black spot...I try to grow black spot resistant hybrids when possible since that disease is such a problem. Collect and place the dropped leaves in the garbage, not in a compost.

Cheers,
Todd
