  • Prolonged wet weather can lead to root and collar rot diseases developing in susceptible plants like avocados, citrus and many Australian native plants, particularly in areas with poorly drained soil. Yates Anti Rot is a systemic fungicide that is applied over the foliage to prevent and control root and collar rot diseases.
  • Check Australian native plants for signs of myrtle rust, which causes bright yellow to orange powdery spots on leaves. Control by spraying Yates Zaleton Dual Action Systemic Fungicide over the plants.
  • Visit your local garden centre and choose a bougainvillea while it’s in spectacular flower. Look for dwarf varieties for growing in small spaces and pots.
  • Apply Yates Waterwise Soil Wetter over lawns and garden beds to help summer rain move into the soil and not sit on the soil surface.
