    I dont think that its being chewed, I think its a bacterial fungus called shothole, just pick off the damaged leaves the new growth should be fine. I dont know if there is a chemical spray for it.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Thanks Lyn.. I will get some tomorrow and give it a blast!

  • Ok even better...I will start by giving it  good prune!

  • ok!
