What kind of rose systemic is the best? Is there a particular ingredient 2 look 4 or brand?

My rose carpets are dying and I'm sooo worried! I guess they got a disease or something (definitely have black spots and are now just turning brown and becoming twigs!). ...oh and 4 my geraniums should i spray a regular liquid soap and water mix on them to get rid of whiteflies..i think they're whiteflies..the soap won't harm them? How much do i use and how often?

With black spots, a systemic is too late. You need to find a liquid feed that kills the cause of the black spots while providing a fertilizer at the same time.

If after 2 weeks of this Indian Summer, you don't see healthy new growth, cut off all the branches with heavy indication of black spots and prune back for winter. Add a different basic granular fertilizer after the first rainfall of the season, and let it rest for the winter. Feed it again with your systemic at the first leaf in spring.
