I’m not sure if this is just sap or something more diabolical.
I decided to do some cleanup on a few of my nursery stock junipers since they are staying in their pots until next year. I came across this substance which looks like a growth on the plant. It is hard but not solid, i would say that it is sap, but it seemed strange to have a random spot of sap.
Anyone any idea what this is ? It’s all over my juniper around the junctions. the foliage seems fine. A number of other people in the UK have also been posting about it but I’ve not seen an identification yet. I’ve started spraying with fungicide for now.
You might want to have a look at this thread.
Quick video of Ryan going over rust. I’m not certain that it is rust. But… forewarned is forearmed.
Well instead of removing the whole limb i did some careful cutting and it looks like it may have just been a bad wound from the nursery and it was trying to heal.
I guess next step is to clean up the cut and add some cut paste?
@BonsaiNewbKyle sorry I missed the question mark. Yep that’ll probably be fine. Guessing you have done something by now though! Sorry for the delayed reply!
Every time I see this thread title, I misread it as “Jupiter”
@Winnipeg-Walt Hopefully we are a little closer to earth!!
Maybe just pitch a pocket
Bad typing might have been just a pitch pocket of sap
Yes, I cleaned up the cut and applied some cut paste. I will continue to monitor it for other signs/symptoms.
Thank you all for your input.
