RUST NEVER SLEEPS: Myrtle rust has been confirmed in a Kerikeri nursery. It's a really nasty plant fungal disease, and poses a big biosecurity threat. If you think you see myrtle rust, don’t attempt to touch or collect samples! Take a picture, note the location and report it immediately to MPI on 0800 80 99 66.
