Oedema I think. The tan leaves especially. Nothing I can do about it then

Nooooo don't say that! The one thing I can't change is how much it has rained 


I'm ok with insect pests, but fungal problems are a nightmare....

Looks like both! However, the brown dots on underside of leaves firm a little circular pattern, which looks a bit more like rust than oedema.

what a great site, Pansy! Will bookmark it.


with all this rain, I'm not surprised I have rust....and not best pleased. Not sure I even know how to treat it....


thank you so much, both of you. 

What kind of plant is this?

i have two boxes of white pelargoniums, were doing really well (south east facing, watered only when it rains, good free draining soil with grit).

Then I noticed the leaves browning and dropping.

still flowering well, but the leaves were beautiful and now are not!

what is this disease? 


What is this succulent please?

Thanks. Norfolk- I've had a good look and it's definitely oscularia. Now I just wish I knew how to propagate it!

What is this succulent please?

Succulent, hardy down to -5C, slow growing, about 4 years old now, tiny pink flowers in mid summer, evergreen. Tried to take a cutting but didn't work, so will try to collect seeds, if I can find any and grow from them. Cannot for the life of me remember the name though. Any ideas? Thanks. Sorry about netting in front, it's fixed!
