Q.Plum Rust Northwest England

Zone High Bentham | Anonymous added on September 30, 2021 | Answered

What is the reccomended treatment for plum rust in Northwest England, please? We have just bought this tree (by post, because of coronavirus), and have not introduced it to our garden yet. (We have no diseases in our garden in back) We are wondering if we should remove all the leaves first (I fear this will weaken it irreparably, as it is a potted plant) , spray it with fungicide … and maybe leave it isolated from the rest of the garden until the rest of the leaves drop for winter, then plant it in the garden in back? If you reccommend spraying, which fungicide spray do you suggest?
