Added: 5th March 2013 Description:
We propagate juniper cuttings in a poly-tunnel to help re-establish local population. Recently noticed white mould on a couple of our cuttings. Can anyone recognise this white mould, don't want to destroy all the plants if we don't need to.
Identifications Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
Confidence: It might be this. Notes: I am maybe being alarmist here, and it needs to be checked out by someone actually looking at the material. However, this looks like it COULD be a Phytophthora, and as P. austrocedrae is the equivalent to Juniper as Chalara disease is to Ash, it HAS to be checked out. DO NOT plant any more material out in the Renfrewshire Hills until you know. Since I am local I could, in principle, come out, but the Forestry commission have better expertise.
