Q What’s the whitish-brown cov­er­ing on my goose­ber­ries? MR MFA POOLE, POWYS

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved -

A Amer­i­can goose­berry mildew is a white, fluffy fun­gal growth that can ap­pear on the leaves, stems and fruit and later turns brown. There’s no fungi­cide to pro­tect plants, but you can re­duce the prob­lem by prun­ing the bushes so the cen­tre is kept open to im­prove air­flow. Dis­ease-re­sis­tant cul­ti­vars in­clude ‘Green­finch’, ‘Hin­no­maki Red’ and ‘Rokula’.
