Black wood isn't good....
When did you get them (local store?), how soon did you plant them after receiving them and how did you plant them (pot/garden/fertiliser/watering)?

I don't want to be the prophet of doom but I think your roses are well on their way to the big garden in the sky.

got them from a local store mind you i choose the best ones available as from what i see who sell black cavier rose when was buying them most of the stores who stock it they were all on brown or black canes now can understand if it was one store thought there were a few and all looked the same planted it right away in the garden like any other rose didnt look like it was dryed out so seems to me it is one fussy rose to grow unless someone else had better luck with it.

BC is supposed to be a good rose and with a name like that everyone will want one. I'm still sitting out buying one until I get some reliable information how good or bad.

Some roses get a black look above the graft if stressed or suffer drying out. Have noticed 'Carefree Beauty' can look black 50% around the cane. In a batch of 10 one year olds in 8" pots I lost all except one which is now in the ground ready to take buds from this Spring.

Pack roses are quite risky particularly those with very short roots. The plant runs out of energy pretty fast so it's important to get bareroot roses into the ground and well watered quickly.

When I receive packaged roses, I always unpack them quickly and then put them in a bucket of seaweed solution for a couple of hours. I hope I'm doing the right thing?!

Yes Sue in my opinion, I do the same and also water them in with it.

LOL Yeah, me too.

I had a young multiflora sitting in a tub of water for over 12mths once.... great root system when I planted it out eventually!!
