Help Black Spot on Rhodedendron

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 18:47

Hiya Bonnieweething

I would not cut anything right now.

How big a plant is it?  Are the black spots more like soot or actually black or brown spots?  

If its a soot type issue I would try and wash the leaves.  Then spray with fungicide.  If black spots again I would spray with fungicide. 

 

Talkback: What to prune in winter

Pam

I cut back lupins in summer by removing the flowered stems.  

No cutting back now though.  If there are dead/brittle old flowered stems remaining just clear them away. That's it.  

Lupins are already sending up new shoots here now. You could scatter some fertiliser around them soon and the odd slug pellet.

What is hapenning to my lawn in the winter

Most damage to lawns ...I think...is caused by leatherjackets amd chafers in autumn.  The solution was a lawn grub killer which has really been banned
