Q.

Cercospora

Zone St Augustine, FL 32084 | jocstay added on October 3, 2016 | Answered

Ligustrum covered with Cercospora. About a dozen 5' high. I am considering using hedge trimmers to cut the growth containing this fungus then cleaning up the area under the plants before spraying with fungicide. Also fertilizing. Is this the right approach?
