This is what happens when you water your plants with our city water-I guess there is too much clorine or whatever. Wonder if our insides look like this from drinking it? I water from the bottom or use soaker hoses, but hubby was just trying to help. People that don't know any different think a little spray of water on top will do it-NOT! I was very calm-for me and showed him the soaker hoses and what they were for. It will take a while for it to look better again, but that's life in a garden.
