How do I stop host plants dying from Phytophthora infection?

1 answer
Expert Answer

Root rot caused by fungi can kill host plants (grapes, trees, apples, and tomatoes, heather). Roots die back and whole branches may collapse. Progress may be slow as trees lose limbs over several years. Cut away infected material. Site new plantings on better-drained soil and dust roots with mycorrhizal fungi.
