Serenade Disease Control
Disease control in the garden has come a long way. Black spot on roses and powdery mildew on bee balm and phlox is no longer the price you have to pay for not using toxic pesticides. Serenade is a preventative biofungicide that can suppress many plant diseases, and it's not toxic to beneficial insects, bees, or people (unless ingested). Serenade is made from a strain of a naturally occurring microbe called Bacillus subtilis. You'll get the best results if you spray about every 7 days to protect new foliage.
