insects everywhere, I have a lush garden with all sorts of predators/ beneficial insects. havent' noticed too many aphids this year. the plants seem insect free apart from the odd sheltering spider
So, about 6 weeks ago I noticed the larger older leaves going yellow, then blotching then brown and dropping off.
advice from a pal suggested old leaves getting past it and dropping off normally. I water and feed regularly, and don't think I'm over/ under doing either. recently noticed the lower branches dying entirely. and then saw that some of the stems are rotting where they attach to the main stem...
This used to have a stem attached

Rust Fungus Rusts are plant diseases caused by pathogenic fungi of the order Pucciniales. An estimated 168 rust genera and approximately 7000 species, more than half of which belong to the genus Puccinia… Any appearance of rust must be immediately dealt with by removing and burning all affected leaves. Composting, or leaving infected vegetation on the ground will spread the disease.
