"A lot of my friends have memories of gardening with their parents / grandparents, but unfortunately I wasn't fortunate enough to have that experience."

Yes, this is often the way of it.....gardening with parents/grandparents I mean.

"My 10 year old daughter loves helping me out in the garden so we are on this wonderful journey together."

What a wonderful journey this will be for you both and credit to you for encouraging her.....but I would urge you both not to get too downhearted when things don't go well.

Remember, they are a lot of people here with lots of knowledge who are always prepared to help.

Good luck.

Hello, Bev.....welcome to the forum.

The 'white spots' you speak of, is mildew. A fungal disease  that  is very common in roses I'm afraid.

Treatment? You'll need to spray with something like 'Rose Clear'.

The reasons your rose blooms may look a tad sad, is because of rain damage......it's always like this with big blousy blooms so it's a good idea to gently shake the water out of them after rain.

Oh dear, Pip.......there are just so many 'brown stains on leaves' causes, I just wonder from what you say if yours may have been exposed to spray drift.

Bal - don't worry about the topic you post under. I don't think anyone takes much notice of that - we just look at the query! 

 

Oh yes, I do so agree, Fairygirl.......in our BBC days, those draconian rules about being modded for being 'off topic' were a joke.

Can't open your pics, Jemma.....but feel fairly sure from your description that your plum tree is being attacked by plum aphids, difficult to see because they are inside the rolled-up leaves.
