This year has certainly made the record books for snow and ice this winter and water this spring. Many of our landscape plants were slow to emerge due to the long winter and the cool weather this spring. And those that did fully leaf out are now under several inches (or feet) of water in some locations. This "one-two punch" will certainly have a negative effect on some of the plants in your landscape.
What can you do?
The past few weeks we have been receiving many samples of anthracnose, a group of fungal diseases favored by cool wet conditions.
