Is it a gooseberry fool? (certainly fooled me!)  :lol:
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

And someone promptly locked it!

Looks like mildew.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

For non-organic gardeners the RHS recommend this stuff:

Systhane Fungus Fighter

The BBC gardening site don't name it by brand name, but recommend its active ingredient.

Usually caused by damp conditions like we are currently getting. When you prune the gooseberries aim to acheive a wine glass shape and open up the middle of the plant. This allows air to ciculate and helps prevent mildew. To clear it up now you will need a fungicide.
