Diseases on ornamental plants
- Mallow rust: The undersides of the leaves are affected with light pustules. On the top of the leaf you can see yellowish-brown spots. If nothing is done about it, this fungal disease spreads to stems and stems. You have to cut off infected parts of the plant, just pour the plant over the ground and choose an airy location so that the leaves can dry quickly if they get wet. In autumn you have to cut the plant completely.
- Gray mold: This mold forms on onions. During storage, but also if they remain in the soil all year round. Then leaves of daffodils and tulips can cripple. Stains can be seen on the flowers. Infested onions should be disposed of with household waste, only store the onions in a dry place and always loosen the soil well.
- Wilted asters: parts of them wither, often even the whole plant. First the leaves begin to wither, then the flowers and finally the rest. The only thing that helps here is digging out and disposing of the plants so that the remaining plants do not become infected.
