Brown spots on Viola leaves

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 08:18

The warm damp weather has encouraged lots of fungal 'infections' this autumn - my guess is that it's something of that sort.  I'd pick off the worst affected leaves and hopefully when the weather cools down the problem will be gone.

Be careful not to over-water.

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all

Not a whatjamacallit in sight so far - I'll have another look in the garage later, but I'll pretend I'm not looking, that way they won't hide from me

Hope everyone (dogs and gardeners) are well today

It's ridiculously warm here (16C already) but raining - I'd wanted to give the lawns a cut - they're much too long, but unless things change suddenly I doubt they'll dry enough.  I'm going down to son's this afternoon as my car's booked in at his local garage for a service and MOT - not going to pay dealership prices any more

A while back, on one of the threads on here, someone posted a picture of a wooden box full of succulents - it looked great and would serve the purpose and not be too heavy to move.

Can anyone remember which thread it was on?

Hi and welcome Hellotreacle

Don't worry - it'll all come right.  Can you take lots of photos of the garden and the individual areas and the problematic areas and post them on here - that will give us an idea of your options and the best order to tackle them in.

To post a photo on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.

If it doesn't work give us a shout
