Hi

I planted some native beech bare root in February and they were doing great until I looked at them today.

They seem to have some sort of rust around their leaf borders.

I haven't watered them much in this dry spell I'm hoping that that's all it is and that it's not some sort of disease on them all?

If it is some disease do you have any suggestions how I can control it (maybe even organically if possible?)

Any help would be great, thanks Very Happy

That's just dessication. The leaves have been transpiring more water than the root system can supply the leaves with, so in response, the plants have shut down the edges of the leaves. Those bits of the leaf are dead. Just give them more water, more often, and they'll be fine. Don't remove the damaged leaves. They might look a bit ugly, but most of the leaf is still working fine, and the plants need every bit of sugar they can get.
