We had a  very late frost when the flowers were almost at their best , but not quite, and they all turned brown and withered. It is always touch and go as to whether they really show their best...could this be what happened to yours ?

Having removed my broad beans I forked in pelleted chicken manure and  planted out my cauliflowers from their 1 litre pots .... firmed them in , netted them  and now the outer leaves are all going orange... what's this about ?

We gardeners are never really happy are we ?!  At the moment yours is a problem we could do with right now wildflower meadow is sitting in a flood , my huge rambler roses are rotting in the bud , the moorhens and slugs are happy so we head off to an open air concert tomorrow with wellies rather than flip -flops !

More like the top one . I'll see if I can get you a pic.I've removed the worst of the leaves to try and slow down the spread, increased the airflow ,decreased the watering and feedingand will keep an eye on it all ... thanks so much for all your help.

If I were to ( on one or two plants) remove all the affected leaves could the plant still function with maybe only a very few leaves and plenty of potential fruit ? I love the potato leafed Branywine too ...sometimes difficult to get it to set fruit and therefore not the most prolific plant but what flavour !

The spots are yellowish on the top of the leaves and brown on the undersides and leaves are affected from top to bottom of the plants. The variety worst affected is Brandywine Pink. No sign of darker spots in the patches.

Not as extreme ...those are dead patches and maybe mine will become like that but in size and shape they are similar. I am really grateful for your input Italophile ..thanks.
