Fungicide Application for seeds and seedlings:
Winter is the time to put seeds to ground and start Bonsai from scratch. Here is my general plan on fungicide treatment in the baby phase.
As temperatures in Perth are perfect for fungus growth and a bit cool for germination, seeds will take longer to germinate than in summer, but their survival rate is higher due to the cooler temperature and humidity.
Buy some 'Mancozeb' or 'Fongarid'
and a 500 mL spray bottle. Use a
watering can for the first application of
fungicide when you have planted your seeds and
the spray bottle for application henceforth.
Fungi are the predominant killers of seedlings and are the reason why seedlings just seem to die, or seeds go mouldy. Treat the fungus and you're halfway down the line to success with your Bonsai.
Iíll have some more hints for you
soon - meantime, enjoy....!
