First time this has happened to me but new garden new problems.
As nothing has grown here before for nearly a centuary and it was grass or tarmac I'm guessing it's not in the soil but the warm damp winter or the insects I've been so keen to attract.
Before ripping the plants out I cut off the offending parts and the rest continued to produce. Planning on new plants and crop rotation (mind it's a tiny area) I hoped for better this year. Healthy new broccoli plants but no seed for anything else so I was pleased a friend offered small kale plants. To my dismay they already have a few tiny white blisters on them.
Should I go ahead and plant in the clear soil, removing the affected leaves as they grow or should I ditch them? Really don't want to ditch them but also don't want the entire bed affected.
Any ideas or experience with this? Will feeding them something improve the situation and if so what? Anything I can do - before going to the garden centre and buying some though they may not have them with limited stock.
