- This disease is caused by two fungi, which may be present on the plant together. The first has pink spores, which develop under leaves in wet weather. The second is recognisable from spots on the leaves, which develop into large black streaks down the stem. Patches of greyish fungus also appear on the lower leaf surface. As the disease advances leaves are lost from the plant.

Question from Susan Scullard

After removal of an infected box hedge how long would it be wise to wait before re-planting with box?
