I determined I have some new bushes with Septoria Leaf Spot, I determined it from this link http://www.plantmanagementnetw... I have leaf spot on this one the worst... Found this, Leafspot diseases are controlled by resistance, fungicides and through summer pruning. The most severe problems have been observed on young bushes of the cultivars Jersey and Murphy, and on the cultivar Wolcott. Wolcott is very susceptible, even on mature bushes.

Purchased at Lake Street Garden. I was originally only looking to buy a Chandler but this Jersey bush was so much fuller grown and filled with blooms. It was only priced $5 more so I had to get it.
Meredith79 On May 21, 2015 Miscellaneous Event
One of the oldest and most widely grown of all varieties, Jersey is a favorite for home gardeners who want an easy to grow bush. Jersey produces late season crops year after year. This bush tolerates a wide range of soil types, and the small to medium sized, sweet tasting fruit is a favorite for baking.
