Problem with my Acers

Scale insects; if only a few, wouldn't have such a dramatic effect.

However, you've done the right thing and washed them off.

Weird spots - potatoes

Never had this effect my potatoes before, but I've had it effect my leeks, onions and garlic etc, mid to late summer...

...but having done a bit of research, come across common rust Puccinia pittieriana or deforming rust Aecidium cantense as a possible answer.

Google images for each and see if it matches.
