Our Next Meeting...

Rose Leaf Spot Diseases

Tuesday, November 15, 2016 7:00 p.m.

Adult Building, First Baptist Church, 3500 Walton Way, Augusta, GA.

Rose leaf spots here, there, and sometimes, everywhere!  Look closely and you will see not
all leaf spots are the same.  Some are purple, some have ragged margins and some exhibit a shot hole center.  These are all different fungus diseases!  Prevention and control depends on the correct identification of the organism followed by use of a fungicide that is labeled for that particular disease.  A bit confusing, huh?  Our presentation this month by Mark Kingsley will cover this topic in detail.  A retired Soil Microbial Ecologist and VP of the Aiken County Master Gardeners, Mark will provide the knowledge needed to keep these diseases at bay in our rose gardens.  Bring along your troubled foliage for diagnosis and discussion purposes!

Program Chair

And, don’t forget, we will be gathering at O’Charley’s for dinner at 5:00 p.m. prior to the meeting...
