In your first image in the lower left quadrant there is a leaf with a single black dot on it. This could be an indication of flea beetles. Flea beetles rather like young tomato seedlings. Examine your plants carefully for these small black insects about the size of a pinhead which move quickly but can be caught and carefully squeezed. Check the plants ...

No, this is not blight. Caused by normal everyday fungus and it is called Shot hole as well as other names. A drop of liquid that happens to have the fungal spores in it splashes upon the leaves. The plant itself manages this fungus by causing the spot to die and fall out leaving a blank hole. Pretty cool. Definitely no big deal. What I am seeing, ...

Looks like a powdery mildew. I would take photos of plant, and get identification using this site or PlantID app. Then look up the plant in Westcott's Plant Disease Handbook for matching known diseases.

I still see some yellow, which is not as good as green, but better than all brown. What was the problem, lack of water? Then give it more. Palms like quick draining soil -- think sand not mud. Palms react slowly, so don't expect quick results.

It's called spindle galls, it is caused by mites. Tiny mites live in these galls, and lay eggs there. It is usually not something to worry about, although the sight of it might not be very nice. Here you can find some more information.

You might want to consider the Ontario IPM sheet related to Nitrogen deficiency. In particular this mentions that cool weather or very dry conditions can cause the vines to fail to benefit from N in the soil. The N is there so there is no need to increase levels, just wait for conditions to change. The yellowing of leaves, with red in the petioles and shoots ...

Tomatoes are hyper sensitive to herbicides , it can drift hundreds of feet from an application area and affect tomatoes. And, yes, herbicide in a compost can affect them. My son got some free rich garden compost from a retirement home that was closing down a garden area ; filled his pickup truck. He used it as addition to a few raised vegetable beds. Almost ...

This will be a good news contribution. As far as we know, fireblight is not present in Australia. Fireblight would usually present itself as completely dried out twigs in spring during blossom time and in spots in the tree where it entered, not over the whole tree at the same time unless you missed it a few months ago. Watch carefully as the leaves fall; if ...

You have what looks like a red oak, from the points on the leaves and the spots on the young bark visible down low. It is fairly common for red oaks to have a largely cosmetic affliction where little brown spots appear on leaves which in most cases does nothing except look odd and potentially troublesome. It is easy to be led astray in diagnosis by these ...

Similar to other large-pit stone fruits like avocado, mango can get a lot of nutrition from the pit during the first 6 months to a year of its life. Eventually the roots have to take over and look to their soil surroundings. Note that in their blurb Miracle Gro advises that their Tree Shrub soil is "not for use in pots and containers"; look in the product ...

Avocados are soft-leaved tropicals so they are very sensitive to water reserves. Any even brief interruption of sap to the leaves can result in some yellowing and browning and drying of leaves. Root interference as a result of repotting can be detrimental. Your plants look tall, and the one visible pot looks relatively small compared to the tree it is ...

In the UK, the recommended time for pruning plum trees is April or July, but definitely not at other times because of the risk of silverleaf disease. I'm not sure that is canker, and its definitely not bacterial canker at the moment because there's no sign of dampness or oozing from the area. However, the bark has gone for a reason and that area will be ...

Size of pot is fine, and you used the right potting soil, so no problem there. You are right that it wasn't a great idea to repot whilst the plant was in bloom, but I suspect it was probably difficult to keep it sufficiently well watered before you moved it. Equally, standing it in full sun would have meant the blooms didn't last as long - these plants ...

The white flecks look like Azalea whitefly. Examine under magnification to verify this. Treatment is possible after blooms are gone, but be careful to follow product instructions. Make sure to use rainwater or distilled for azaleas to try to keep pH on the acid side. Tap water is often hard water containing carbonates which makes it alkaline - check with ...

This looks like Alternaria Stem Canker. Not good news I'm afraid. The vine is basically toast since the canker will girdle the stem and shut down all movement of sap. Since the canker is at the base this indicates the spores were in the soil and moved up to the plant. Remove affected plants as soon as possible and destroy, make sure not to use the soil for ...

Azalea blooms do not last long and your leaves look good , so I think the blooms are just finished. When Houston TX plans their "Azalea Gardens Trail" it is always a challenge to pick the best weekend to catch the most blooms.

Well I would say neither bacterial nor fungal. Reason being that the leaf of Pachypodium is typically tropical in that it is thick with a waxy/shiny/hard coat surface. It's really quite difficult for an infection to get from the outside in. Much more likely for problems to arise on the inside and display signs through the most visible parts later. Recall ...

Since it is so small, I would normally say pull it out and plant another one. I am a landscaper. Those appear to be way too close together. Spruce grow very fast and get really large. Can you pull out two of them and just use one? I am also concerned about them getting shaded by the large trees. That could be the cause of the problem you are having.

Looks quite normal to me. I just checked my tomato plants and nearly all of them, while a bit more advanced than yours, have one or both of the cotyledon leaves showing tan patches. My suggestion would be not to worry, let the main leaves expand and if they are not fully green then is the time to start being concerned. I think this could be because the ...

It is difficult to see from the photo. I would water much less, just to keep just moist the dirt. Your pot has plastic on the side, and it is deep (and I think small). Additionally your greenhouse. So very probably there is some condensation, and so some water droplet on cotyledons, and so, I assume, there are some fungi. In your case, I would try to keep ...

I think your diagnosis is correct. Here's what the University of Wisconsin-Extension says about treating/preventing needle cast: How do I save a tree or shrub with Rhizosphaera needle cast? Consider treating affected trees with fungicides containing the active ingredient copper (e.g., Bordeaux mixture) or chlorothalonil. Treatments will not cure ...

The white fuzzy growth is fungal hyphae. I can't quite tell from the photo (even under magnification) if its clustered over undissolved granules of moss killer/feed, or even over seed you may have laid - excessive amounts of granular products, under very damp conditions, do sometimes grow this type of mould over the top. It may also be a side effect of the ...

It is probably Pink Wax Scale insect, they're the right shape, though the colour varies from greyish pink to pink; this infestation is not uncommon on Lilly Pilly. I've never seen them quite such a glorious shade of lilac pink before though,they look quite pretty; you may see lots of ants crawling on the tree, which would confirm it is scale -they like the ...

It's a gall caused by a parasitic wasp. In most cases there isn't much to be done about them, though you may be able to set traps for the adult wasps. In general unless the tree is already suffering stress or disease, they will not really cause problems for the tree. www.nature-and-garden.com/gardening/gall-wasp.html/amp Edit: Bamboo is correct; pink wax ...
