“If your plants are looking a little ratty. Try to identify the problem whether it be an insect or a fungus.  To look for fungus, check the underside of the leaves.  Last year, downy mildew was introduced so if your impatients are looking ratty, check for black spots.  It`s probably downy mildew.  You can try to treat with a fungicide with an organic and synthetic solutions,” said landscaping expert Rich Vaicekauskas.
