Schip cherry laurel shot hole
I have schip cherry laurel bushes. This is the second year we have shot hole. How do I treat this?
Westchester County New York
Prunus laurocerasus is prone to several foliar fungal diseases that result in shot hole. Like any other fungal disease, it cannot be cured once the symptoms are wide spread. Fortunately,as they only attack the foliage, these diseases are not typically lethal.
In order to prevent such a disease, one must adopt a fungicidal spray regimen beginning in spring before the symptoms appear and continuing regular weekly sprays throughout the growing season. This is not usually a practical solution for homeowners.
