  • Sometimes the harder I try to understand the workings of nature, the more confused I get. I think I am finally working through the confusion in the case of witches broom, a distortion of plant growth where twigs, leaves or other plant parts are densely clustered together. My advice when gardeners question the odd formation is plant pathologists dont completely understand it but once its there, its thereprune it out and hope for the best; or remove the plant all together. Not very optimistic, I know.
