Please visit the garden shed for specific information on how to identify and and treat infected plants. You'll find a bottle of a baking soda mixture that helps
with fungal diseases. Please make sure to read full instructions on bottle and apply once a week for 3 weeks. Additional tips:

  • Avoid overhead watering! It does not provide the deep watering needed, and wet foliage invites the spread of fungal diseases.
  • The importance of mulching cannot be overstated. It helps retain soil moisture, prevents weed growth and soil compaction, and prohibits water from splashing on leaves. There is organic straw available in the garden shed (now free). . . please use.
  • If you decide to use a bark mulch, please purchase a natural product that has not been colored or dyed.
