thanks punk - had no idea! early days for me growing hardy geraniums - thought it might be that sun was too hot that side.

They are 2, planted in a SE facing container where they have happily grown before.

Free-draining.

Not overwatered.

Flowering like mad since last week, but many of the usually green leaves have turned orange/red.

What's going on?!

Not dyingor diseased, I hope...

rust on lamiums and rhubarb

I hate the idea of using more chemical pesticides as I've already dumped all my insecticides and currently have a bee explosion in my little urban garden

I have 2 lamiums, both looking very nice and covered in flowers (bees love them) but one plant seems to have rust coloured patches on most of its older leaves.

Rhubarb in a pot also has a coupe of leaves with similar markins.

Neither plant seems to be suffering though.

leave alone or use something organic which you clever folk would know about?
