Sclerotinia is becoming more common. How do you recognise it?
Usually you will notice wilting leaves on the plant. If you look down the stem you will see a brownish watery area around the stem. If you cut off the stem and open it up and see blackish things that look like rat dropping you have Sclerotinia. Several commercial sprays like Greenguard or Watkins Fungus and Mildew Spray are effective against this, but again must be sprayed regularly. The club has just purchased several sprays specifically for Sclerotinia so if anyone wants any contact Robin 4773 669.
