What worked for you? I have a strange case. Mine seem to get the fungous every year around mid summer. Just after the second bloom. They look healthy and beautiful until then. Then they get black spots and fall over. at that point hubby begs to mow them down. I wonder if there is any saving my poor plants. My peach trees get a fungous too where the leaves get bumpy and curly. Must be our property. all my herbs are fine though.

Long Island Gardener


What`s growing in your garden? Delphiniums, Painted Daisies, Roses, Peonies, Lilacs, Tuberoses, Parrot Tulips and Double Daffodils -- I`ve never met a perennial I didn`t like, but I have a weakness for flowers with fragrance. Here in Zone 7, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York, I can`t think of a better way to spend a summer morning. I'm educated in this field, but even better, I am genetically qualified: Part English gardener ancestry, part Irish potato farmer. I have degrees in related fields and a lifetime of hands-in-the-dirt experience. Not convinced? I have a daughter named Holly, a dog named Daisy, a bird named Buttercup, and a house on Garden Street. Still working on the license plate.
