I am looking for a good fungicide to combat the "brown needles" falling off my Cedar in the springtime. We sprayed 3 times last spring with fung-onil and the "brown needles" are now back at about the same percentage as before. Have not tried the water treatment, but I have noticed that the lower branches do not seem to be affected. Those branches do get washed when the bed is being watered for other bushes. So, is there a definitive answer--water bath's or fungicide? We have had this beautiful tree for twelve years and would hate to lose it.
