Fungicides for roses

I recently visited RHS at Wisley and asked for advice on dealing with black spot on roses and they recommended Wilt Pruf and Serenade organic fungacide. So far I have been unable to source either in the UK in domestic quantities and wondered if anyone had used these products and if they knew of a UK supplier?

    Amazon sell Wilt Pruf  £41.65 !!!! but free P&P :)
    I think most rose growers just accept that roses will get black spot and live with it.
    Clearing fallen rose leaves in autumn an winter will help, but invariably by mid-summer the spots appear.
    I grow other plants around my roses that helps disguise black spot
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Try a product called Sulphur Rose. It can really help.

    I wondered about that @Posy - I might give it a try as well, thanks.

    It is worth a try - not so expensive! Good luck.
