Check pan­sies for black spot

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

In wet con­di­tions, win­ter pan­sies and vi­o­las can suf­fer from fun­gal in­fec­tions, which ap­pear as black spots on the leaves. The spores are spread by wind and rain, so check your tub and bas­ket plants reg­u­larly for any out­breaks. Re­move any heav­ily in­fected leaves you find and burn them or place in your coun­cil green waste bin – don’t add them to your com­post. Spray plants with a fungi­cide suit­able for or­na­men­tal plants, such as Fun­gus Clear Ul­tra Gun spray with my­clobu­tanil or Sco s Fun­gus Clear Ul­tra con­cen­trate con­tain­ing triti­cona­zole. And make sure you wa­ter plants from be­neath, rather than over­head.
