They are a group of diseases caused by fungi. They attack leaves and stems of rosacea, carnation, chrysanthemum, violet, etc. They cause well-defined patches of various forms that later become pustules and which eventually open up like craters to give off a dust composed of spores. The color of the spots varies with the species. They are usually red, brown or orange.

When it appears it is difficult to eliminate. The best is preventive treatment where there is a chance that it manifests. Infected parts should be cut and burned.



Symptoms: The green color of the leaves turns yellow and the plant loses vigor.

Causes: It is because there are difficulties for the formation of chlorophyll. It may have different origins that produce the same effect. It is usually due to the excess or lack of some element. The lack of iron in the soil hinders the formation of chlorophyll. If there is an excess of lime prevents the fixation of iron and the same symptoms occur.

It is also possible that the cause is in the roots if they are attacked by parasites or found on poor soils, with excess water, poorly aerated, too dense, etc.

Solutions: Chlorosis can only be corrected if we act on the causes. Adding iron sulphate to the soil corrects its lack. For limestone soils, it is also convenient to incorporate fertilizers based on organic matter that attenuate the action of lime. In this case it is also advisable to provide iron, in chelated form and pulverizing it on the foliage, to facilitate its absorption. Care should be taken to avoid burning of the leaves.

If the problem is in the soil we must improve its quality by means of fertilizer, aeration, etc.



Symptoms: mildew affects a wide variety of plants and crops. The adult leaves show in the bundle well delimited spots, clear or yellowish, accompanied by grayish villi or the whiteish dust that produces the fungus. Over time the stains black and dry. The infection also affects the shoots, preventing their development and even kill the leaves. The attack of this disease is more likely in young plants and those that develop in the shade and in humid environments. It is often confused with powdery mildew, although this occurs in drier environments.

Causes: the mildew are produced by different types of fungi that parasitize plants, depending on the species attacked. Erysiphaceae is the family of fungi that produces mildew that leaves whitish dust and Peronosporaceae, which shows hairy spots.

Treatment: Sick leaves will be removed as soon as possible. Because the fungus thrives with moisture, it is advisable to keep plants free of excessive moisture and well aerated, ventilating greenhouses and increasing planting spacing between individuals if necessary. It is also good to keep the soil clean of weeds and vegetable remains. Plants should not get wet when irrigated. There are different chemical fungicides for your treatment, such as Maneb or Manconceb.



They are not dangerous and hardly damage plants. Although they can annoy when they build the anthill under a plant or when they climb through it in search of the secretions of aphids, which, in addition, translate from one place to another. They are also fond of taking seeds, especially those from freshly sown grass.




We expect the shortest days and, by January, the coldest days of the year. At the end of the development of the plants, they will enter the stage of vegetative rest. Although the garden is at rest and is almost bare still offers some points of interest, such as leaves or fruits of species such as maples, arbutus, cotoneasters, pyracanthas, holly, berberis.

At the end of the season, life and color will return with the flowers of acacias, almonds, cherry trees, prunes, camellias, daffodils, thoughts, bergenias, jasmines.

Soil: It is advisable to aerate it before the intense frost arrives. Now making more or less deep pits and opening the holes of what we will plant in spring allows the meteorological agents to act, improving the structure of the soil.

Fertilizer: Extend a layer of organic fertilizer everywhere. Leaves that have been falling during the fall can be used to make quilts or compost heap.

Bulbs: Check the bulbs we have stored in case one rots and avoid in time to deteriorate the others.

The Lawn: At the beginning of the winter you can still place the lawn in loaves (tepes). The leaves are still collected, preferably with a metal barbed broom.

The mower should be cleaned and accepted, as well as sharpening the blades. We will put it in a protected place. If it is gasoline it will run a couple of times during these months. If it is electrical, it must be checked that the plug, cables and connections are in good condition. The rest of the tools are also cleaned and saved.

At the end of the season the seeds can be prepared for the new planting. At that time you can also add fertilizer, raking and correcting the unevenness. It is not advisable to work the grass with high humidity or frost.

Planting: You can still plant some bulbs that bloom in spring. After cleaning, reorganizing and improving the soil can be made plantations in rocks, flower beds, borders, beds, etc. If we place very sensitive species we must protect them properly.

From that they lose the leaf you can plant the trees and shrubs that come with the bare root. It is also a good time to place containers, as well as to make transplants.

We will make ready the seedlings of the plants of the season and of the biennials.

It is the ideal time to plant the rose bushes.

Cuttings of all kinds are prepared by February.

Pruning: We must finish pruning before the strong frost arrives. They can be resumed when the danger of the latter passes, toward the end of the season.

Protection: In very cold regions delicate species should be taken to sheltered places or protected with plastics. Avoid accumulating too much snow on the branches so they do not break. Monitor fences, guides, tutors, etc. So that they are in good condition and resist inclement weather.

The Pond: The fish have to feed until they stop eating. The usual species are lethargic and withstand the cold well. Ice can be dangerous by retaining the harmful gases emanating from plants when they decompose.

To release them we will practice some hole with hot water. You can also let some object float (a wood, a ball) to be caught by the ice and when you remove it we will get a breather. You should not break the ice violently because the vibration can hurt the fish.

Remove water pumps, clean and cover them. The ice that forms in the pond exerts a pressure that can get to crack the walls, especially if they are of work. To avoid this, some plastic drums or pieces of wood will be left floating in the water, which will absorb the thrust.
