VISTA MATTERS: Wanted - Falling Leaves and Worker Bees
HRS Update: There is Fungus Among-Us
The HRS committee has surveyed the gardens and noticed some plants are showing signs of fungus and pests. As community members it is critical that we each stay on top of these issues as they will spread rapidly to your neighbors bed and beyond. Even if you do not have an active outbreak, these products should be applied as a preventative measure.

The committee recommends three products that help with these issues - Serenade Garden Disease Control, EndALL Insect Killer and Garden Fungicide (both by Safer Brand). All are available in your local garden stores or online.
