Q.Red Tip Care

Anonymous added on April 18, 2011 | Answered

We have a rainy climate right now. I keep fallen leaves picked up and the trimmings picked up as well, but I need to do something not to lose the plant to the fungus I just read about. Can you help me? I need the hedge row to keep the neighbor’s yard out of mine.

Remove and destroy fallen leaves, prune off diseased twigs. Avoid overhead irrigation. Fungicide sprays (copper-based products) are also generally necessary for this disease, beginning from bud break and applied every ten to fourteen days until all foliage has matured. Mature foliage is no longer susceptible to infection.
