Not only does the seaside’s salty sea air cause metal to erode…but the garlic is also rusting!
The winter months were extremely wet, and relatively mild, and it’s been unseasonably warm over the past week. With the addition of low levels of light this equates to one thing, the perfect breeding ground for RUST.
Rust is an airborne fungal disease. Leaves start to turn yellow and small orange blisters appear on the plants foliage.
Sadly there is no cure. It will seriously affect the development of the bulbs, especially as it’s so early in the season. The best course of action is to remove the infected leaves and remain optimistic!
