Q.Seems Like Alternaria Leaf Spot Is Taking Over My Home Garden. Is There Anything I Can Do To Save It?

Zone 90026 | jesshumphrey1 added on April 3, 2020 | Answered

It started on the Brocolli Rabe, jumped to the Fava Beans, and now seems to have moved to the turnips. Im not sure if it’s related, but my sugar snap pea leave have all turned yellow. What can I do to save my growth? Do I need to take out all of my plants and start over?

Ultimately, it will come down to just a handful of remedies.

Once this takes hold, it is difficult to rid from your garden. You will need to treat with a fungicide, and keep all infected, dead, or otherwise tattered plant material completely away from the area. Rotating your crops each season can help lessen the effects, as well.
