In this newsletter I address the recent report of bacterial wilt/brown rot from imported geranium cuttings. I thank all of the folks in plant disease regulation, diagnostics, and research for the wealth of information relevant to and supportive of rapid detection and control of this potentially devastating disease.

I hope all are faring well. Spring-like weather certainly lifts spirits and plants!
