The Q&A Archives: dropping leaves

Question: my pointseters are dropping their leaves and turning yellow with black spots.

Answer: Shirley,

That sounds like their soil is either too dry for a period of time or too soggy wet. Both conditions can kill roots and cause such symptoms. Also if you haven't fertilized them recently try applying a light dose of a complete product such as Miracle Gro. Finally I suggest you take a sample of the leaves with the black spots to your County Extension Office and see if they can identify if the problem is due to a fungus or bacteria and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
