Not-So-Sudden oak death

Canada seems to be coming a little late to the sudden oak death (Phytophthora ramorum) party, but they're making up for lost time. As reported by the UBC Botanical Garden weblog, the British Columbia Landscape and Nursery Association is doing more than quarantining potentially infected plants: they're actually recalling any camellia plants purchased since September 2003. People that have camellias are being asked to call a number and arrange to have someone come to get the plants. In exchange they will receive an "appreciation package."
