We have them in our lawn too. Great! Better than grass. Just mow over them, if you keep removing the leaves they will die.

If the roots are big enough to make holes in then pour the Brushwood killer into a hole and cover the wound with wax (old candle) to keep the weed killer in. Otherwise, all you can do is keep doing what you are doing.

Hellebore Leaves Problem

Flowerslane. Have a look on the underside of the leaves opposite the white spots. Is there a corresponding area underneath with white hairs on it?

If so then it could be Downy mildew. This is very similar to Powdery mildew and just as annoyingly difficult to remove. However, it is not deadly, just unsightly.

However, that is not the way that the fungus which causes Hellebore leaves to go black, begins.

They really dislike strong midday sunshine on the leaves, especially if the leaves are wet. Also Cloth of Gold likes a moist soil and goes brown like that if it dries out too much.

Bad year for them, every one of our Katy apples is affected. All you can do is follow the RHS advice. The apples are still edible, you just have to cut out the wormed bit.

Comes out of the fruit when they are damaged, not from the insect which does the damage.

Our Damsons are still unripe.
