Moldy Peony Bushes

maggiem_pittsburghOctober 11, 2007

Can anyone tell me what I can do to rid the mold on my Peony bushes? This is the first year that I've notice the mold. I did cut back three of my bushes, but I'm concerned that that was the right thing to do. Any tips would be appreciated.

This time of year I would cut them down,haul away all remnants and spray the ground with Bordeaux. This year is over, do what you can to prevent the problem next year. If you do not have space between your plants for good air circulation you might want to remove some to a better location. Al
