Rust (Puccinia sorghi) on my purple oxalis. 😡 It's a pretyy colour at least... Looks to be shaping up as a bad year for rust - most of my snapdragons have it too. 😢 I hate to use chemicals but I've not been able to find an organic antifungal that works and I refuse to give up snappies or my long sought after oxalis!!
I heard from The Garden Clinic from 2GB radio in Sydney with Graham Ross that OCP makes an organic effective fungicide called "EcoFungicide" and that lab tests showed fungi dying in under 60 seconds.... (http://ecoorganicgarden.com.au/news/eco-fungicide-ready-use-arrives/) I also have a false shamrock, but have never had rust. Mind you, Belgium IS far from Australia ☺
I live in Brussels Belgium and listen to the podcasts of The Garden Clinic sent to me by 2GB radio in Sydney. (I listen while I'm driving) It's a fountain of enthusiasm and practical advice! Graham Ross there said the other week that if you can't see it at your local Bunnings, just go to the "special orders" desk, and they'll get it in for you no extra cost....
Did a spot of division today.
