Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Seedling)

Sserendipityy's Edible Fruits
Update: 2506 days 17hrs

Comments: -

This plant I bought on a whim as I passed it at a nursery. I didn't  realise there were dwarf fruit trees until then. It has begun my love of fruit trees.

The plant is rather bare at the moment and a couple of leaves are yellow. It is growing in a pot with store bought compost and potting mix. It has been raining steadily for around a month now and although it has good drainage i think this may be part of the issue.

The actual fruit reminds me of hot summer days when a child.

I also  love mulberries fresh or baked in filo pastry with freshly whipped cream.

Sweet Potato - Sweet n Gold

Update: 2507 days 21hrs

Comments: -

I actually dont know the species  - it is a store bought one I just put in the ground. Only recently found out they are actually best propogated by slips not the tuber.With the recent rain the plant has most probably rotted below the ground although the leafy tops look healthy.

I aim to use organic means in the first instance.

Question:

I didn't know about Blueberry rust when i received this plant.

What is the best organic way to deal with this?

If I give the plant optimum care and just remove affected leaves continually ,will this solve this issue?
