Apple Brown Spots: Fungus' are the responsible party for brown spots on apples. Proper care of the tree is paramount to help prevent fungus. You may call our Orchard and speak with a Master Gardener for more information and help they are available Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8 AM to 12 Noon 702786-4361.

Oleander: Again, fungus' are the guilty party, they can cause yellow, brown or black spots on the leaves. Many of the spores can travel in water so if the plant especially the leaves are getting wet from irrigation try watering at the base. These fungus' don't generally threaten an otherwise healthy oleander.
