Have discovered mildew affecting Aquilegia leaves. Newly planted this year in my woodland corner.  Other plants (fern, hostas, hellibores) in vicinity not affected. Cut off all the leaves? I've left it go to seed.

Mine have done the same Tim, I've cut them down to the ground.

Mine too. I think it's more likely when they get a bit too dry.

Mine too, is it best to cut them all back?

It happens to me every year, I pack a lot into my borders. I cut them right back as well and the new growth is healthier.
