How come I seem to be the only one who found bleach-type treatments for rot
to be (A) relatively ineffective, and (B) extremely bad in tending to
suppress root growth resulting in an often fatal loss of general vigor.  I
have had nothing but success using powdered concrete or mortar mix on the
"wound" (after, of course, scraping out all the afffected area).  Similar
principle, it creates a hostile environment (pH) for invading bacteria.

Hasn't anyone else had the same trouble with bleach, or even tried my idea?
