***HELP - Cherry Laurel Shot Hole*****
I planted a bunch of 7 gallon cherry laurels at the end of September. I accidently conducted overhead watering (A big NO NO for cherry laurels) a couple of times in the span of 2 weeks as I planted all of them (about 40 trees total).
Now of course the dreaded shot hole has shown up on leaves. Some trees are worse then others. It has been relative dry in SC due to the drought but the leaves still are wet every morning due to the morning dew. I cant tell if the shot hole has peaked. Of course I do no more overhead watering.
I search on the internet and found an interesting study using various fungicides with "Fore" being the best.
I want to hold off using the Fore if I can. Will this shot hole clear up on its own??? I think the problem was exasperated due to the stress of the new planting as well, which made the cherry laurels more vunerable.
