I avoid trimming when it's moist, but sterilizing tools every time would be a major hassle.

New to my area. But I believe it is coming in on New Nursery stock from Homestead Nurseries since it is new stock that I am seeing infected. So far Bacillus subtilis seems to be the only cure that is working for me. I can stop the dieback but new growth is very slow in coming back.
