How to deal with rust on flowers and decorative trees
How much joy gardeners give flowers, ornamental trees and shrubs! From spring to late autumn, replacing each other at the peak of decorativeness, they surprise with their flowering and beautiful foliage. But all this splendor disappears with the sudden appearance of a disease. And there are many diseases, especially fungal ones, that threaten flowers and other ornamental plants. And, perhaps, the most common among them is rust. We will talk about the manifestations and consequences of this disease, as well as how to protect or treat affected plants, in this article.
Rust on flowers and decorative trees
Having appeared on plants, rust leads to death, first of all, leaves, then shoots. A diseased plant, even if it does not die immediately, most likely will not survive the frosty winter. The disease reduces winter hardiness, and generally strikes at the plant's immunity.
Recognizing rust is easy. It appears on the underside of the sheet in the form of small growths of brown-rust color, which are called pustules. The growths can be different in shape and size, but their contents are the same - spores of the fungus. When pustules crack, the contents spill out, and spores spread to healthy plants.
Brown spots on the upper side of the leaf enlarge, merge and often cover the entire leaf. Damaged leaves quickly lose moisture, they disrupt metabolism and photosynthesis. The plant stops growing, the growth of new shoots stops, and the dried leaves fall off.
If the affected plant is not treated, then with it, most likely, you will have to say goodbye. And not only with it - the wind, birds and harmful insects contribute to the rapid spread of rust. Therefore, it is so important to regularly inspect your garden and at the first sign of the appearance of the fungus take measures to destroy it.
Can rust be prevented on plants?
The necessary agricultural measures can reduce the risks of the disease. First of all, these include cleaning the garden of weeds, harvesting plant debris in the fall, uniform watering (without overmoistening).
Lingering rains can also cause fungal diseases, because all mushrooms love dampness. Therefore, during and after the rainy period, it is necessary to carefully inspect all plants.
Under adverse weather conditions and other risks of the occurrence of diseases, it is advisable to carry out preventive measures and prevent the very appearance of the disease. And if she has already shown herself, you need to act immediately.
