List of garden plant diseases : Fireblight

Fireblight disease is a bacterial disease that causes susceptible plants to die back at the tips and eventually to die completely. It mostly affects pyracantha and some kinds of cotoneaster but apple and pear trees can be affected, as well as hawthorn and mountain ash. The shoots tips wither and yellowish ooze appears on the stem in warm, muggy weather.

This disease is notifiable to the Department of Agriculture and the plants affected must be burned.
