Frequent diseases in outdoor plants

Do you want to know about some diseases you frequent in outdoor plants? Surely you are delighted with your garden or the plants you have on the terrace or patio, but it is important to know some common diseases that can attack your species. This way we can identify them in time and, of course, act accordingly.

Remember that both pests and diseases, can attack all kinds of plants (whether indoor or outdoor) Now in summer we can see many of these pests attacking our beloved flowers, also with the heat we tend to water the species more so it is possible that they accumulate water (if you have spent in the irrigation) and contract diseases linked to some fungus.

There are many frequent diseases, today I leave only a few to give you a little idea. I don't know if Oídio and mildew will sound to you, they are diseases caused by a fungus, you should be careful if you have an orchard where there are vegetables or fruits. For example, onion, squash or tomatoes can get this disease; Apple trees or melons can also be affected if you grow them.

Another very common disease is mold, as it sounds. It usually appears on plants where the sun does not shine and are in darkness or barely gives them the sun's rays. They are usually plants that have excess moisture and fungi proliferate. You can see the fungi both in the flowers, as in the trunk or in the fruits and branches of the plant. If you have a plant like that, try changing it to somewhere where it is from the sun.

Another disease that usually affects fruit trees, trees with dense canopy or plants that are in the shade is Bacterial Fire. Normally we will know because we will see black spots extended by the younger branches, some fruits and on the leaves. Theirs is that you get rid of the areas that are affected. Prune the plant and cut these areas.

These are three of the many diseases that can attack your outdoor plants. In the next article I will leave you another few. Remember to avoid watering more than necessary, let the roots remain in a perennial humidity when your plant does not need it; try to put the plants that need light closer to the sun or in a place where they are given for a certain time … and the most important thing is to know what type of plant we are going to grow and what are their best care And what are your plants, what problems do they present?
