Rot/Disease on Fern Spray (4 Replies) Tweet Geord Klein Schmidt Posted May 5, 2018 at 3:26 pm Greetings from Ketchikan Alaska. Can someone help me identify what is wrong with our Fern Spray? It has been super healthy and vigorous up until this year. Any remedies? Can’t figure out how to upload photo! I will send via email to ACS, hopefully someone will upload for me.

My best guess without visiting in person is snow mold. Cancel Edit Save Geord Klein Schmidt Posted May 7, 2018 at 11:43 pm Interesting. We had very little snow this year, but yes it’s possible. Should I go ahead and prune the dead off? Cancel Edit Save conifereditor Posted May 12, 2018 at 10:19 pm yes. Prune away the dead bits. Those branches will not grow back.
