I had a few where the leaves turned almost white. What is this and what can I do about it? Also, many of my zinnias died al- most overnight. One day a plant was fine, but the next day it was brown and dead. Is this Aster Yellows or something else? This was certainly the year of diseases and pests. (e- mail reference) A: Indeed, it will be a non-sum- mer to remember!! I would suggest spraying the hedge with Malathion or Orthene. I don't believe the cur- rants have mites because I've never heard of white mites, but they can't be doing your hedge much good. Next spring, spray with horticul- tural oil while they are still dormant. My best guess is that you are over- watering your petunias, especially if the container isn't free draining. Your zinnias may have white mold fungus, Phytophthora, Verticillium, Pythium or Rhizoctonia. Only a lab can determine for sure. You can try a general purpose fungicide to see if that helps.
