Medium_img_1269 Fijifire hedge just drying up and slowly dying back. lost 7 plants already. no visible pests. Ongoing problem.

I sought opinion, and advised to try anti rot, which has not made any difference. also tried grub kill confidor. It does not affect successive plants, but skips a few and affects a distant one. Have lost 7 of the 20 odd plants already. Plants are well established and have grown about 1 meter in height. Live in bundy ,QLD.

Answer: Hi Madhavi,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Your Fijifire. Metrosideros is a hardy plant and well suited the Australia coastal area. However, being in the Mytaceae family, it has been effected by Mytle rust for many years, particularly in Queensland and NSW. Try Yates Zaleton Dual Action Systemic Fungicide and see more info: http://www.yates.com.au/products/disease-control/concentrates/yates-zaleton-dual-action-systemic-fungicide/

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
