    Maybe show us some photos? If you have black rot that is a start. Peroxide also works well. I usually cut out the rotted parts so they don't spread, but before you do that let us verify with a photo.

    Yes, if you could get a picture that'd be very helpful. Sometimes it's not as bad as it first seems.

    Karen, I agree, pictures will help. Black rot affects new leads\youngest growths at first. You probably have a different kind of rot, not so devastating. Please post some pics, and we will try to help!
