Cold dew: Chrysanthemums are tinged yellow (5 of 5)

April 20th, 2009

Cold dew 15 of 15A couple of weeks ago, we noticed that the hakea at the front was unwell. We took action to clear plants from its base to allow air to circulate, hoping to stop the spread of any fungal diseases. Several dying branches were also taken off to lessen the tree’s burden.

Perhaps we noticed it too late, or it just had been too wet, or the root rot was too advanced, the tree didn’t make it. We came back and saw that the whole tree had turned a deadly brown.
