More on SOD

The discovery of plants infected with sudden oak death (Phytophthora ramorum) at a nursery in California last week has led to several developments:

  • Some news sources are now reporting that SOD was found at a second nursery in California: Specialty Plants Inc.
  • The following states have banned the import of nursery stock from California: Florida, Georgia, Alabama (camellias only); Washington has a 1-day delay in place.
  • Perhaps due to increased press, IC Wales is reporting that SOD has been found in two formal gardens in Britain.
