Hi all,

I have been growing my leeks outside for a while and they are now around 30cm tall.

Should I pull them up and re-plant deeper or leave them alone?

My mature rose is covered with black spot. Treatment says to remove all the infected leaves. Problem with that is that they all have some on!

Should I remove every single leaf?
