Holidays 2018 Wreaths? Be alert for boxwood blight

In Written by superadmin on Thursday, November 29, 2018

Do you have boxwood in your landscape?

 

 

Boxwood Blight in the Mid-Atlantic is occurring more often and with more severity.

 

Be aware that boxwood greenery used for holiday decoration could harbor the boxwood blight pathogen.

 

To minimize risk of introducing the disease by this route:

 

- Do not use boxwood greenery near landscape boxwood.

 

-When disposing holiday greenery, double-bag it in sealed plastic bags and dispose of it in the landfill.

 

 

-Do not compost boxwood greenery.
