HELP - All of a sudden all the new growth on my Brugmansias have wilted one by one and are not recovering all my new plants from cuttings are ok.

Also some of my other plants are just starting to turn yellow or drying up at the tips (campanula, ninebark, phlox ,young tomatoes, thornless raspberry) my red currant is dropping fruit and young leaves turning yellow this all has just happened in the last few days, they are getting enough moisture, they have been fed.

I first thought of Fusarium wilt, I talked to my local garden centre, they think it's viral but don't know what.

It looks like herbicide drift. Have you or your up-wind neighbors been spraying Roundup or another herbicide?

Actually I have Daisy although it was on a calm day, I was using Killex but was at least 20 feet from any of infected plants but I hope you are right Daisyl at least I will have a cause, thanks for the info.
