Caution! Virus

Wiping secateurs and loppers with meths before moving on to the next plant may help, but many are carried by aphids. Encourage the blue tits.

I found the cubs like to chew on polyethylene pots. I have several large ones with chewed edges. They also pinched balls from neighbours gardens to play with. They like Bakers meaty meals beef chunks a lot.

Hellebores - black spot?

That what I thought. The only one I had infected, I dug up and took back. They said all I had to do was cut off the leaves,  but new leaves were coming through infected. I was offered a replacement, but as all the ones on display were showing signs, I had my money back. All of my Ashwood one's are fine.

Hmm, black streaks following veins, I'm veering more to black death than black spot..

Verdun, what do you think. If it's black spot it's far worse than any I have had. Old leaves I just cut off, but if these are the new leaves, cutting the infected leaves off will probably kill the plant anyway.

Is it black spot or helleborus black death? , which has distorted leaves as one of its symptoms. I had one plant that I bought from wyevale with it. I dug it up and took it back before my other plants were affected. It is caused by a virus transmitted by aphids. It is also known as hellebore net necrosis virus

I wish I could enlarge it. My first thought was Spiranthes sp. or ladys tresses orchid.

Any ideas what this is?

I don't see why not, but the question is Why? It keeps well . I store it it in washed out milk bottles or fizzy pop bottles.
