There is a new solution available to beat the dreaded box blight, which has been on the increase right across the country this year ? Fungus Fighter Plus and Fungus Fighter Concentrate from Bayer Garden.
Box blight is a fungal disease that causes leaves to brown and fall, resulting in bare patches.??The spores spread quickly and easily and a plant can be destroyed in just a few days, with the worst damage often appearing in the late summer and early autumn.
?Box blight can be devastating as many people have discovered this season,? explained Alison Mulvaney, Product Manager at Bayer Garden.???Containing our own active ingredients, which are proven to be highly effective, Fungus Fighter Plus and Fungus Fighter Concentrate are easy to use and have a broad spectrum of control.?
Fungus Fighter Plus, a ready to use formulation, controls all major diseases of roses and ornamental plants including blackspot, mildew, rust and leaf spot.??It contains the Bayer active ingredients trifloxystrobin and tebuconazole and so protects, controls and eradicates a broad spectrum of diseases.??The combination of these actives also means Fungus Fighter Plus has both a contact and systemic action, so it is fast-acting and gives long lasting protection of up to three weeks.??It can be used indoors and out, in the garden, greenhouse, conservatory and home.
