Rose leaf problem

HoneywortHoneywort Posts: 23
Hello, can anyone please tell me what the problem is with my rose leaves on left of picture. Could it be blackspot, or perhaps damage from very high temperatures over the last week or so? Should I cut damaged leaves off.
Apologies for sideways photo.

    It doesn't look like the black spot we get so may well be heat damage.

    I suggest a thorough watering - 10 to 15 litres poured slowly so it soaks in to the roots - to help it along.   Remove the affected leaves if you find them unsightly.

    Thanks for your help @Obelixx . Hoping it's nothing more serious than sun damage.

    Let's hope so.  Keep an eye on them.  If they go crispy, remove them.   If they go mouldy or rusty remove and bin them.   Do not compost them.
