A new disease for the Connecticut landscapes and most of New England is the Boxwood Blight. This is shaping up to be a real challenge for all us as we all seem to have Boxwoods of some kind planted in our landscapes. This fast spreading disease “cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum” is also taking host on Pachysandra and there is no real one time cure as it is all so new. The most important things we can do is provide good horticultural practices in keeping plant areas free of debris and good sanitation of all pruning equipment.
