Spotted Laurel black patches / spots

Posted: 06/04/2014 at 19:09

I did a quick search and it indicates being in too wet/cold soil over the Winter.

It should recover but maybe it would be a good idea to dig it up and replant it with some grit added to the drainage hole?

I did edit my post nut, you can get hardy Gerberas which grow very well in the UK as far as I understand.

Would be nice to identify a plant that you dont know!

I think this usually indicates erratic irrigation. Usually when it dries out then gets very wet again.

Could be a Hardy Gerbera?

 

The seedlings to the left look like Gerbera seedlings too

I'll keep an eye on them and see how they grow

I grew this seed last year from the same packet and had wonderful plants all Summer.

I thought it looked healthy too, its just those weird dark blotches, they look sort of transparent close up.

Hi all I noticed this strange look on my seedlings. The plants look healthy and seem to be growing fine but I was just wondering if I should be worried about it.

What Would You Do Next?

I would add some Multi purpose compost and possibly some sand/grit for drainage

Lavender

Lavender thrives in Sunny conditions. How much sunlight do you get on this area?

Check out your greenhouse.
