Uh-oh... I wonder, I remember that in Florida
it was rumoured that they sprayed a lot of cow pastures with something to stop
the magic mushrooms from growing. Wonder what it was? Is there any
deficiency known that predisposes to fungal growth, or anything, like copper,
that might help slow it? We had Southern Blight attacking peppers early
one wet summer. After having ID'd it, I poured some copper sulfate on the
area and laid a rolled up peice of copper screen (which we happened to have
lying around) on the ground by the nearest surviving peppers. The blight
stopped. The book says SB will get nearly any kind of veggies you can grow
and lives in the soil for years. I grew garlic there the next year with no
trouble, and have some alfalfa planted there this year as it is said to be
resistant. Some rootstocks are more resistant than others to Armillaria,
but it's a bit late now when your trees are already in the ground.
If you look for a list of plants
that are resistant to Armillaria, does it include your plants that seem to
be fine? What are the nearest possible victims? Donna
