Are There Health Risks When Tree Leaves Have Black Spots All Over And Garden Is Always Wet And Slushy

Question From: Manchester, , United Kingdom
Q: my tree has black spots all over leaves the whole tree is this harmful for my grandchildren and my garden is always wet and slushy is this healthy

A: Leaf spot diseases are plant specific and do not attack people or other plant families so your grandchildren and garden are not in danger. Wet weather brings with it all kinds of challenges. It's best to stay out of the garden when it's wet so as not to compact the soil or spread diseases. Best and Happy Yardening, Nancy.
