Hi folks,
I think I have a dose of blight paranoia too.Just in from the garden. I have a bed of Queens that are doing great.Lovely green leaves and lots of flowers. However I have a bed of golden wonders which were thriving. They are about 2.5 - 3ft tall and the flowers are just appearing.However a lot of the leaves are mottled, pale green . A few leaves , especially those at the top have small rusty brown patches.There is no white mould. I have been watering them every 2nd evening and have mulched with lawn clippings. I have not sprayed with dithane. I have given them a dose of homemade nettle fertiliser about 3 wks ago. They were planted about 18 inches apart each way.Any ideas what could be wrong?
