I have planted four escallonia bushes a few months ago but some of the leaves have turned yellow and there are spots on them. I have been told there is a fungus affecting escallonia. Does this mean they will die or can I do anything to get rid of this fungus

no they are not selling them in B & Q and other places the same but they are selling them in the gardening mags, i have had a few mags sent to me and all have got them in for sale, i got in touch with one of the mags about them but all the info they could give me was to check if other gardeners in my area  are still having problems with them. they assured me that the plants they were selling were fine, but if there was still a problem in my area, weston super mare, they could still die off.

I never buy basket liners, i always use my empty compost bags black side out, you can cut holes in the sides and once the plants are grown you can't see the basket, i always add water retaining chrystals in with the compost to help with watering.

Is it safe to plant Busy Lizzies this year, until three years ago when they all died within a week, because of a desease affecting them, i used to have lovely pots of them. Now i can't find out if it is now safe to plant them again.

I live in Weston Super Mare and i was wondering if it is safe this year to plant busy lizzies again, i love them and up until three years ago  when they all died off within a week due to a disease in busy lizzie plants i used to have lovely displays that lasted until late Autumn. Has anyone got any information about them as i can't get to know anything.
