Is Red Thread appearing on your lawn?
Red thread is starting to appear in lawns everywhere, the warm and wet conditions are perfect for the spread of this disease. Look out for brown/yellow patches with a pinkish tinge. On closer inspection you can often see the pink threads on the leaves which give the disease it's name.
Red Thread rarely kills off grass plants but can give rise to unsightly discoloration in the lawn. Often an application of fertiliser is enough to help the lawn recover from Red Thread but in severe cases a fungicide treatment may be required.
