Question
Three of our 5 tree ligustrums have yellowing and shriveling leaves.  The disease started with one plant and is quickly spreading through the others.  Is there a fungicide or insecticide that I can spray? THANKS.  Herb Wilkinson

Answer
Hi Herb,  I would check out a product called Atomic Grow, which is organic and makes plants healthy by raising the Brix.  When the sugar level rises the plants get healthy and bugs go somewhere else.  It does not kill anything. Using poison sprays only weakens the plants and they end up dying.  It is also a fungicide getting rid of sooty mold and bugs that give our plants fits.  kathy
