Hi there

Noticed in the last 2 weeks some of my blueberry plants have rust spots on them.

I bought 7 new plants to add to my 6 that l had and it seems to be affecting most of the new plants that l got one or two of them have very little leaf left.

The spots are a reddish / brown colour and affect most of the leaf.
l did not notice any spots when the plant started to produce new leaves earlier in the year.

I have all my blueberries in 24 cm pots with echinacea soil and plenty of drainage l also mulched them with pine needles l collected from a local school.

Could l have infected my plants from the pine neddles?
The research l have done so far seems to suggest destroy and burn the infected plants or sprays them the which l don't want to do.

Any suggestions would be welcome

Thanks

Zoe
