What. -- keeps coming up the bottom pornographic site are trapped but everything else it. Okay well. Generally if you wanna a year citrus to do well you should fertilize summary fertilize and Herman. Early spring and midsummer. Done a lot of our animals would destroy a law -- have a better things that they have so well what what fertilizer director at. Well you can use a standard fertilize -- like 888. Or triple thirteen. And you would use for a small tree about -- around evenly distributed around the drip line of the tree. And you would do that in late February. And then again in June. You would apply about a quarter panel and ammonium nitrate. Or half a pound of calcium nitrate. It. Albeit at a -- appreciate it. And Ernie welcome. And good luck. All right me. Back to the ball loose the rain lilies like I said our -- this time of the year in the area. Not often available in guard and senators. I've seen a lot of them on the coast in Mississippi this time of year. Really put him on a show. Another ball he may be seen blooming this time of year are like chorus hurricane -- is. Or sometimes called naked ladies they send up -- flower spike in the fall with the red. And fluorescence it kind of looks like an explosion firework. These vaults that are generally available in the -- Sanders as well as online. They're very calm and then hold gardens. And they have. They spread well naturalize well in your yards. You may. Also Steve -- and in the fall. Some of the some of some of the crime and they'll -- -- as some of the crime and we always will balloons into the fall. And then they produce. What's like a bald bull on the end of the flower and many. Dropped and you can pick these up from around. Old guardians and take them and plant them in -- yard and produce them. Nice. Plans for an. All right a year lessening of the guard and show and Oregon again to a break. And mourn and this -- Russell -- -- and inferred and deal is on the case and if you like to call and ask any questions about gardening and the happiness answer and then you can call five four to six. 1870. Or -- for he had 866889087. -- This time of a year in year turf. You'll start to see. I changed from active growth in the dorm NC. Probably in northern parts of the state. Earth has already. I'm down in tone and turning. -- However you'll have and green cool season broad leaf -- that often. Stars in this time of year is well. And -- began in late September. And some of them very common. We've saying you know fine in. Cool season. Turf grasses. While entering union's south this'll. -- on currently number we need. And the line over and -- strawberries. It's important. To be able to distinguish between. Broad -- weeds and grassy weeds you know on. Generally if you look at -- client and hands. Like an -- -- nation believes. Then that. And that's the broad -- wheat and if you look at relief. And that means in the leaf -- parallel. And that's. Grassy -- -- and that required different. Chemicals. Control. Control. The broad -- weeds in Saint Augustine senate he toys yeah. Or dormant Bermuda grants. Products containing -- -- for Z like we'd be on wheat free and why now. Are all good and as well as three way herbicides which easily -- to force the hand. And a combination of other. Pesticides. If you have Bermuda grants you have to be. Careful not to apply actors seen in fear in the coastal south hours now. You'll find the Bermuda doesn't always go to war if you apply herbicides -- actors need. You're likely to -- -- Bermuda grass line. Let's go to the phone and talked to David Collins and from having him. -- -- Have a problem -- poise and party in -- caught. Some. Interest some hands and I would get -- which of course out by. But it still popping -- been different area. They are overweight children at all. Yes there and if they Rhode Island Al. Growing out of for their plants that you wish to key there's a product called green line cut line and stump killer. It can't it contains the active ingredient tricolor Pierre. And what you would do is where along rubber gloves that I you know. Yet the poison ivy ration. Reach in and cut the tip of the poison ivy and then. These this. Herbicide has an applicator and you drip some on to that cut. Portion of the line. And it goes down into the line into the root system and feels that it's very effective. Okay. And -- bullet killed the other shrubs that she there -- -- and why it. If you're very careful with that and you only apply it to the cut vine and you should have no problems with the shrubs that it's growing now that. OK okay well -- will look at that combine that. At some of the big box stores are where which you -- that. I would look for that at a garden scanner or feed and seed store it's not something commonly sold in. A lot of the big box stores. All right well I think is so much. You're welcome and thank you for -- And well back to the turf leads. If -- have Bermuda grass. Herbicides containing actress singer not a good option and so what you wanna look for our. Three way or four away herbicides. That. Contained to forward the a direct hand. Meet a pro or. Other. Herbicides. And these won't damage your. Bermuda grass. In October. Many people. Like to. Oversees their lawns with. Rye grass there is annual rye grass and perennial rye grass. Perennial rye grasses that little party years and annual grants. And if you over seeded -- along with rye grass. It's good -- here to fertilize it there having nitrogen users says you would want if fertilize it would three quarters to a pound of nitrogen per month. Through the ground in season and that will keep year write grants nice and green. We generally don't recommend or that and standard doesn't generally recommend. Over seeding. Home loans -- The over seeded. Rye grass tends to compete with the turf. I and it's hard on it. Growth and health. If you. Are planting annuals that year yards. This time of year. You have plenty of options to choose from in the garden centers. Snap dragons are. A great choice there's petunias -- Like petunias today. America and unless we have a heart freeze. With frost which will damage them. Pansies and vital as -- good choice for school season. The pansies are little more sensitive to soil PH and the New Orleans area and we have a high soil PA it's generally thing. The Bible is a little bit more tolerant to. That -- He hates me however have a little bit smaller flowers -- and some Louisiana super plants that are. Good choice to plan this year aren't fox who. Column line. And the dying infants. Amazon -- and -- there's several. Colors to choose from that make a nice addition to. Year yard in the Amazon Diane this grow very tall and says the fox who lives. Says this is why he plan that you would want a plan. Towards the rear end here. Darn and behind lower grooming annuals. And plants. In her in New Orleans. Area they recently found citrus stand. And this. Disease affects or nutrients. And we also found. Citrus canker and because of the disease citrus canker. The city of New Orleans and part of Jefferson Parish will be following. Following under quarantine -- about the Louisiana department of agriculture and forestry. And it will be I'm against regulations. To move. Any citrus products out of the quarantine area you can look on long or in the paper it should be published then. To see the boundaries of that quarantine. And now off to -- names for the in the news. Well as mrs. Russell Harris filling in for again -- We have a car online. One -- The morning Russell. I have a complex trade its minimally thoughtful. More than ten years and now and this is the first remote at this problem with the that come -- have not developed very well very very small and full of rocks looking. Spin zone from and that I was wondering would normally. Put -- there and -- falling off -- public. Look at. She was too late to. Do anything for those but what is the problem and what can not do. To receive this equipment shipped. At Kansas and though for all rust collar on that run of the fruit on that outside. Ten that's probably. 22 citrus -- mines which are. Small. -- -- -- Creature that feeds on the developing fruit and a best time to treat for you would be. After the tree is finished Bloomington and the seed I'm not the seats but the Tom Watson the size of now I'd timers that. And which you can treat it where that is on all seasonal oil and this well. Control them -- for. He's might toward democracy. They're very small but with. Something like it Jewelers and -- Bora magnifying glass you should be able to see them there. Probably not present on the fruit now only generally feed on the free to win it's very small. And then as the fruit. Expands. The damage that they cause appears is that rust color. So I have to wait and she it to treated. Yes. And but have been enough but. They do as a. You're welcome good luck with -- -- -- Our ID before the break I was talking about the citrus. Canker quarantine. That New Orleans has fallen fallen under and it. Midnight Sunday. And this quarantines. To help prevent the spread of this disease. It's very important if you grow citrus or. By citrus that you. Keep them within the quarantine area and not move for them. Outside of the quarantine area. If you do you'd be likely to. Transport the disease to a new location. If the it's disease goes down and plaque can spare cash you can. Have a devastating effect on. Our commercial citrus production. And it may prompt the US TA to place the entire stay under quarantine. Which would really. Devastate the citrus industry. Now on another note -- news. Scale culminating goes shields scale was identified in the last couple of weeks and if you grow Japanese blueberries. This scale. Has come -- and then it's. And it looks like a small sort of trying -- shaped. Scale limits and now. A quarter of an inch in size when it's my chair. Maybe a little smaller. -- and it's got any whacks the silvery. Almost. Transparent. Looking. Scale similar to what a fish scale mine looked like. If you see this thing you're. Japanese blueberries or on any other. -- -- recommend that she's. Contact the Louisiana department of agriculture and report. The scale. If you have plants that are covered in black city mold. This is often an indication. That you have an insect problem like scale. It's not always scale could be. Eighth is. Leaf hoppers or any number of other -- sex. A good way to control. This setting old if you get -- on Creighton kernels that are on. Things like Japanese luminaries. You can spraying. And the plan for in sex team control them all unless you control and sex. There's really no way to control that blacks from the mall. In. In -- This comment Vieira started to -- -- patch brown pants. You usually starts -- as the small. Brown area in the long and it spreads and becomes. Larger pants the best way to control brown -- -- -- long would be to treat it with. Fungicides containing as oxy stroke then. Michael have beaten you know. Or pro or -- as well. All of those can be found and you know local. Garden centers and big box stores you have to look for. A small. List and that active ingredient on the front of the container. If you have vegetables and -- Iran on this time of year you may. Be experiencing some problems. On leafy greens. In defense can be a problem this time of year. And what you notice is small. In sex about the size of the head of European. Underneath the underside of leaves. And on new growth and what they do this they have a Pearson's second mouth -- and they feed on the developing. Plants. And now it's time for break. Talking after the morning and this is Russell Harris filling in for Banfield who is on vacation. If you haven't called a question please feel free to Colin and I'd be happy to answer. This time of year and coming up next week will probably have temperature is below freezing in which. Can. Damage you're tropical and tender. Plants. In your gardens. Some of the way to help protect your plants or ten if they're small enough he can cover them with a cardboard box. You can cover them with sheets. Or even with plastic. And if the temperature gets really loud you can take a utility lines and hang in and sign of the container. Wendy and a box or. Underneath the plastic away for from the plastics and it's not. That's enough plastic and not touch in the plant as well. It will help raise the temperature enough to keep your plants from. Freeze and if you use plastic. You should be aware that during the day when the temperatures rise in the sun -- out. The temperature can get high enough underneath the plastic to call cause damage so if the temperature comes out above freezing. Turn that day he should remove that plastic cover. For our large share. Plants such as saying -- or something that's likely to be damaged by. Cold weather you can build -- amount of PVC pipe. And you can cover that with plastic. And erected over the large shrug. This time of year watering your garden and generally isn't necessary in the month of November we have. A lot of rain however if week. Do you have. Dry and mild spell or break in the rain through out this month. And and it may be important but water newly planted plants however establish plants should be fine. In the fall were approaching that time of year when it's best to. Prune your trees and a year shrugs that are not flowering. Shrubs. What you would want to do is look for. Branches that are cross thing around in each other and side of the campaign you know -- this. Small branches that don't reach them outside in the canopy. Are going to be as well. We have a collar and let's go to the found in the that they want. Hello this is the guard and -- Hello this is the gardens. Can't name hung -- never mind. So.
