Overnight the white spots appeared and the top leaves are curling. Is it a virus? 😭

    If it happened that fast, have you had a hail shower in the last few days?

    Yes, I had. I thought about it initially, but got worried that it might be some sort of mosaic virus. So I’ve isolated the plant, until I investigate further.

    What worries me is the fact the the top leaves are curling.

    That could be down to the weather conditions too
    Mine have only just poked their noses through the compost, and I suspect they're regretting it.

    Oh Pete.8, I really hope so. It would break my heart, if it was some sort of virus. I am waiting like a little child for them to bloom.

    They look otherwise healthy plants.
    Just keep fingers crossed the gales and rain are long gone by the time they flower.
    Keep an eye out for lily beetles - they can do a lot of damage

    I’ve been spraying rose clear and I’ve kept all the pest at bay.

    They are young leaves; many plants start their leaves like this. It's to protect them from strong sunshine. Good luck!
