Beside this, how do you treat leaf rust?
Apply copper sprays or sulfur powders to prevent infection of susceptible plants. For best results, apply early or at first sign of disease. Spray all plant parts thoroughly and repeat every 7-10 days up to the day of harvest. Effectively treat fungal diseases with SERENADE Garden.
Additionally, is Neem oil good for rust on plants? Neem oil is going to be the most effective oil for controlling fungal infections. It is a good choice for mild to moderate powdery mildew infections, but doesn't do much good for blight, leaf spot, or rust.
Likewise, people ask, do you cut back asters?
Pinch back asters once or twice in the early summer to promote bushier growth and more blooms. Don't worry, they can take it! Cut asters back in winter after the foliage has died, or leave them through the winter to add some off-season interest to your garden.
What is eating my asters?
Many kinds of insects feed on the foliage and other parts of asters, including the caterpillars of the butterfly Chlosyne nycteis (Silvery Checkerspot) and many moth species. Wild Turkey and other upland game birds eat the seeds and foliage to a limited extent.
