And thanks for joining me it was a sport and looking at me. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Article possible Christmas presents a gut player without some and if your car. Gets angry like that because. A lot of us felt like figured out on weekends and and try to it'll work done in the art and science and Portland he'd get up on. One will be simple and has been so where -- an -- mow properly and it's not terribly bad but remember. For some reason to this registries. Are just holding on to leave -- in here late Schaumburg. And their role to decisions trees that are still colorful full color on them. And have not dropped their leadership and a pistol popping back up come down sometimes and on forever so we're still seeing some lead dropping out. Street sometime and -- qualities. And you know the greens are equally thing and it only bad thing and and in some regards. They don't belong on the law and stretched it -- their way and hatch. Down -- definitely you can still see how long term well -- -- kind of -- light scattering of lead over the -- -- goes up in my compost pile. A fortune as a -- into the art is another option. But has your player's future Richard yard today feet. Have you earlier -- -- -- the win in the rain bring gamma even more believes I don't forget that long are currently warm at this time of the year. Many in the -- brownish color. Especially up all the more forward some substantial freezes -- heard all along her. On the dorm inside -- you can still want to not appreciate it -- clear lead over them -- keeping the -- structure -- -- -- during the -- time blocking the the aircraft's air circulation. And for the answer that stole. Little green anxiously Saint Augustine and the state fairly awake and on the more for a general should not be hopefully dormant. But the question fully dormant a copy them over and -- light from reaching out the long ago are good things are for long culture here. That you can deal with at least some degrees -- my worst. Obama try to get to tomorrow will probably yet still be -- -- maybe sometime next week I can deal with -- If you find out. Maybe got aren't you find that the -- are not too not too -- to rake up ordering the heaviest. Going to get those removed still two -- but the trial some. The sometime in the next week or so to try to -- they have here upon absolutely sure and again. As I always take you and not throw those collegial its stock -- -- a few people -- cup leaves. And trash is it that way -- garbage is based simply have no possible use except ago and so -- and -- And organic material that your landscape create leads from darkness it was trees approach to work. I'll -- valuable organic material that can ensure carting efforts and they -- to a variety of uses so. Never throw away those -- she can use him as a mulch. That is seeking -- and a Roger actual -- sign in your orbit are on trial so in any area. Or you which isn't mulch beliefs are just perfect and sometimes. People break up leaves from a a bad area out from under a tree. And then go to that are -- -- on mulch and putt but it leaves work awful will not just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. So it. You don't want the local -- as a mulch and that's something -- sometimes people are. We used regional. I just liked the way they look alike that night. You know but I'd bark mulch like pine straw like you know -- -- mulch. Well there's only be year round -- as we don't want the down about two inches of mulch to be effective. I think earlier statement. A simpler to do the job of controlling we efficiently conserving moisture. And doing the other things we want -- -- to do so a two inch layer. A two inch layer are all around the world are tribes. Shortly is is a group that swell. What you can do is on an inch or two of -- cynic can be as whole that you rake up and put into the into the air. -- fortune hopefully sorry if you are -- with a back to catch remote Lamotte. Take those wonderful child leaves and dumped them into your parents and that should get in my -- two double edged down think Obama. -- -- -- Of the kind of mulch to you like the way books are the -- purchased it and put it just an inch or so apparently urged not to top crystal leaves. So little. You get and that's the mulch which you need to do the job. But China -- for all the purchased mulch for the it would take to -- the -- that -- elegant and you -- to at least look at them mulch. By all means she is now they're pleased and that -- favorable on top of the and still save money and still -- legion of course -- great thing to do that leaves isn't that -- -- them up and some other way area. Are behind Barack archer someplace -- some -- brought down indicate. Be had to cape -- so once they're finished decay internal. Realm that your real -- call compost -- that compost confused. Or. Bad preparation. In the spring. The or prayer that's for flowers or vegetables. I can be used for contracts aero problems to their benefit. I can be instant -- actions if you look at our trainers are compost that that the potting mixes finish compost little wonderful. Biologically a lot of wonderful material. Perhaps even popping action so again. The lead to some degree what the trees are still dropping them sort culture -- and I need to keep an eye on those as time goes on. All right we are looking -- this morning as is cigar potential that we that -- and -- -- issue action if you got a gardening question form as well and feel -- -- law. That phone number call -- 26 so. 187. The Israel on the local Orleans -- area you can call in toll free at that full freedom is basic tricks. Nine he early seventy we're gonna take a quick break can be -- report card shall right after a -- Whole. Era ban but the weather go -- and so far. Got a question about what you might need to be doing as long term war cool -- Or you know there's something going on during the week -- have a question on archer in or clincher vegetable or larger tree problems. Your lawn. Result in agreement -- Like I always say I'm here and actually get information you need to make those plants grow and you want them to grip on the once again. Is 260187. B a technical and -- remarks calling from Vanderbilt a market morning. I'm great thanks euphoria. I receipt of course -- one bite size audit you know that a lot of ground art art. Now here's -- though it should -- -- your area. But but where what was. That like like our our art that area that law that would stay. And knows outward about the words completely that went -- It like that drainage mark. So I mean when you say I'm thinking about putting him in -- that you're trains too although that eventually goes straight off fairly quickly. You know the -- guard -- areas -- red flag and that's why it's a question in your mind not because committee is like most plants are really need. Our situation where when it rains a ground saturated the in the ground trying to out. I'm fairly quickly asked work so that they auction comes back into the spoil. The risk appear they need in -- stay healthy when rent space saturated for extended periods especially in the heat of summer. A couple the oxygen supply -- the groups they've -- the sulfur and poorly. And as a week in the mandated by organisms all current problems -- can go -- long. So that's why it's so important to have. And there's not much you can do on the proper location to begin with the -- port and mark that's why you're so why do you think about this checking the count now. Listen upon the plan to comedians so not today it's to -- -- but isn't the way it clears up in the next week it is going to be matched by its. -- -- -- I'm mentally weaker become dried out to get those means on the ground so are you are trying to complaint in the next few weeks if you can again. If you suspect that during the just not ideal -- theory it can actually build up they did implant does can be used in a bad. And that bit and be eight to ten inches higher and the surroundings oil. Actually can make market are trying to -- better car shaped bed. Implant those committee is in that race period and shall work that they get I adequate drainage in that location where you want put them -- -- actually. After talking to -- I realize you know I'm probably. Taking a risk because it -- trying to this year kind of trying to out quickly afterwards so. Maybe someplace like art like to locate -- community is or under the tree ages is better. That's -- say do you prefer shape especially in the afternoon. So on each exposure to -- as -- in the morning. And then as we move into the harbor and -- a -- comes and -- -- -- -- -- to dappled light -- morning's sun dappled light to the day. These are ideal Egypt to avoid. Areas -- -- in some old -- ball. Or areas blasted Trombley more angle controls sunset. -- source stressed out from the conditional sometimes stress. -- all times. -- -- -- but there's stressed out of the bookstore open as well for a long time. Although these are not as Richard Green color when they're grown in Warsaw and so. Trying to engine light exposure are always important congress locating plants are situated in the landscapes and that certainly different for millions. That -- to. Play like -- where. -- -- Art and it goes to -- -- that changer. But it is an option for everybody out there lifting if you can't determined to put something someplace. It'll rain bands will provide that an elevation against a jet engine at the plant needn't. And and you -- work that out that -- to mark good luck with lately. Already I would I think if they're asking that they -- -- -- -- -- human rights but also that that -- -- -- -- those are. -- had -- -- -- that's that's a good point mark thank you as much recall that within committee and the that's. Something unique about committees that very few treason Brahms. Our best and to when they're. I mean by the time -- firms such as human couples start to blow it got hot implant in treason in the late spring early summer. Or any time this summer she's -- this is the worst time of the year. A week at these plants in the ground the cool season right now is just a perfect on the planet all of the trees and shrubs. -- that we can put -- -- -- -- -- -- adding a shade tree. -- trying to do that over the next few weeks to a month if you think about it shrubs either can -- users today in all forms are. -- -- -- well armed will repair problems in the that we use are in our landscapes is also a really great time. -- -- put those in as well but very few trial by the emotional struggling. Again in the spring by the time -- is common problem around about late march or April. -- he missed the ideal time to plan to they have hot weather on the order. At that point. And local people. We'll wait to plant until something's -- -- one can say -- people wait for roses are on the road problem and that has great potential April or may get -- On that point. But it has to be able to kind of powers to shape the size or color. That your giving it's slow the global -- and has a picture on it. The flow between the -- into the plot or shell and so there's a good. Why people do that -- begin to keep that in mind that if you wait until. Eight goals were made -- trees and shrubs planted. You're playing that at one of the worst times of the year at the plants. You sure about its and you put him in the ground and planted in the spring -- -- standing growing and making flowers. And then some kind of struggled that first -- plant -- now will be condition retrial once you get into the group invocation and the start shipping out new growth. Again shall spring arrives in in March people. -- -- -- -- Again this is really super the year in the Canadians even though they are in full bloom right now will continue Dublin and January February. March and even lingering little bit -- and people often times. I even though they aren't blue and they're not an actor broke and that's something -- not to comment actual growth. Can we don't start rolling until the spring and other tribes start to grow but analysis simply opening our but Patricia. That they produce and -- on the plant last summer -- -- actual growth pitchers seeing this the plants that you awake and active growing. This plant that is still relatively dormant at this time no active -- -- -- spot or sitting on a new group -- -- doping goes -- but but again again should the opportunity. At a local nurseries and garden -- now -- the committee is in bloom. And select the ones that you think -- just like color right size or shape of Canadian. That will fit in which were -- and the Orleans eight. It'll be other kind of in the is that quicker we we also will -- group -- culture tranquility -- commit suicide courts. Are different species from the age of -- -- the typical areas. With a big flowers in bloom. From December until March or April. The suspect was produce smaller flowers were smaller local small lead trouble question this year is a wonderful war -- -- Bancorp. And for me as beast that is species -- -- in October and finishes looming around about December or January -- and lap. Right now but should strength which is still when you want it -- strengthen -- landscape. You can find a beautiful -- -- and well. If you want it communities for major -- landscape you'll find them in alone and that's a great time to plant both of those and the garden again along with the other trees shrubs and -- Additions in just Lincoln it's winner. I'm out as we shall spring into my planting and you wrong this is a time to get that done. Our folks at how to take a news break Erica bombings in the newsroom as well -- global on the area where on the world more and art and it's a coal out there to -- Michael and drying out in next week goes oral comport. Wonder are those of -- -- -- because it's important and get out get that -- the pictures in the day. There and do much beyond question that knowledge to be doing out there art whether it's split finger -- control. -- we intend estimate that do not take the -- Loftier spot or chilly weather. We -- worldly mild winter that allows problems to continue launch something going on. Idle information on what to do about it agent regarding questions this morning. Need some help but for some information on the call is 260187. The interoperable local New Orleans calling area. You can call -- -- and that toll free number is 866. 8890870. Something going and our right now. Spring -- so you know we yet -- surgery two types of spring ball. Articulate it and the amount they need improperly -- again our winters are -- to be modeled. And apple simply implement all the way we do the rest of our spring for example to have them watch October November December. -- planting for bills and Marxist and snowflakes and spring are on our personal wonderful spring -- horrible that we. We -- that wouldn't loan properly because they would not an actual hold onto the wintry year shall we refrigerate commitment to -- highest since we -- the ball in November. We put them in that paper bag in the gets a bit of power -- And refrigerate them for about 68 weeks and provides factual and that they need to -- which for the -- -- and ensure that -- -- -- force so. Love to -- and again. At tulips and sprinkles in general. That we expensive way to. Add color to our spring garden -- think about that -- to a couple might call a sixty and eighty cents. It -- up with globe once while work. -- for about seven appendix. So that it can sign. You're kidding about a week of color I'm one or not open and it's kind of all over. I can in spirit you can -- and in these -- -- -- is in the ground. Thank -- for five months of -- My planting and -- most of our our caller that we rely on in this boring. It comes from school fees and bedding plants like pain scientists that dragons petunias supply hole. All the wonderful. Package available shall archery and -- that I even now at those schools have been -- the wintry season. But for the spring ball so we -- demand and the ball in the blue -- is boring and again that the split on the ball well the bridge but it is exquisite. -- patch of tulips adds so much to spring garden are sharply cut -- the bills are harsher side. Our beautiful eagle -- -- or sprinkler. Which spring flowering bulbs embellished and here they -- especially important spot like toward the Chico it and now or. You're living here we go out and shoot you can enjoy the -- -- to -- and enjoy the they and other beautiful -- marsh brings fees and again most of that planted the I'm already in the ground out. -- -- -- search for those who locals are ancillary and then element treatment if you refrigerated and don't forget that. That we plant to -- a refrigerator in late December or change worry in the plant goes in the ground than. So if you get some slopes higher society refrigerator wanna be nice to get that space. There have been times I've had -- -- of -- -- Mobile. And that try to get well all out and get them in the ground. But it should forget and we have just a banker to in the back of one of the drawers are traders kind of like to give them sort of -- I keep in mind and now the time to get those ground. If you need to look at it and still for sale at area nurseries and garden centers -- sometimes sports will put them on trail. In in January did you not worth purchasing if they have not been -- -- -- -- -- It's contention for buying a bunch preamble that may be on sale this time we get -- of heights -- -- media refrigerated. That happened in pre shall because it just -- -- opal well. If you do find a good a good trail -- of -- spring ball like that the bills bought just five for instance I and you want to -- those trying to. I think that's probably work into the that the price has good and doubles spot you aren't going to get those in the ground -- My other types herbal sometimes they will be pretty well Forrest I even though they're planted belly like this. I'll bet on the -- and had to be chill before planting a usual sale. Not a good -- but to get those treatable. In the grounds of something we're focused on. At this time of the year already folks if you got regarding questions this morning. Don't let the program cope with the information you'd make your plans -- visual interest. Apple call 60. 187. -- We're gonna take a quick break can be back with more art show right after it got -- -- the guard which were talking gardening if you got to guard question that's. It'll it'll without something that you were a few critical long and pixel. 187. Congrats to mom a lot. Extra talk on the only something going on mark Martin's. I'm not a great thing about living here. I in the deep coastal well we you're ground growing season we've -- got things that we can be live with and doing. In our cartons and something to talk about Olympics come to this time of the year one of the things that act you know how old -- -- I've talked about how mild winters are are essential late November. What we -- I'm usually cold weather and usually this year. -- temperatures down in the thirties on the court for and I even dipping down into the forties and the on the shelf for temperatures in the low 40s30s. I have not been terribly uncommon this -- Edmonton and interest in interest this year. You know mentioned -- -- -- -- since -- properly unless they are -- forgery it was sound odd because cold. Is sort of an evil thing -- shuts everything down. Cold hurts our tropical plants and -- views are landscapes so. The sort of under honorable people. Oh want coal. The interesting thing to understand the plants the curtain they declined to have to think of pictures cold -- for the plants are native temperate climate. -- should be calm to the point where they need to cold to be healthy and grow. And plant if they are made and -- for cold winters are more beneath the cold. Will -- well if they're -- climates where action he's warm in the winter time and our winters are relatively warm. -- have a -- for the fiscal chilling hours and certain plants that -- the cold. -- certain amount of cold a certain number of hours of cold during the wintry season. To grow and bloom and producer of fruit are normally and naturally and -- they -- -- -- -- And patient we will be helped him language stage poorly. Now did you ever consider the fact that there are plants out -- that will not grow year insult and a because it is and -- some of the most beautiful plants and corporate partners in -- down here. Wiley X and peonies we can't be successful lives -- action peonies here in the deep south and the -- -- area area. Simply because our winters are true mild now this winter. Is relatively cold -- production levels we actually whack up well good amount of chilling hours and what that. That means is that some shrubs and trees that response chilling. Hours a mobile home especially nicely. In the springs from the trees didn't chilling towers that are out here. Mesa and especially much crop or fruit on the portrait it would grow our -- include peaches years. Palms are apples and nectar greens are -- name -- -- are like here in blue beer is also a certain amount of children to help you as well. But apples pears peaches and palm trees that are coming. Up from eight to that's colder climates ours and we should let peaches peers were on certain victory. For growing our Burton down here. We have to make sure we shouldn't those types that -- aren't real future towers and in each something that that requires a bit fortunately towers and usually get on the short and greater war in Europe much short period -- Hours typically occur in the course of the winner they'd be 250 to 350 chilling hours typical. And say that this went which had so much cold we managed received its chilling -- -- there will -- -- -- up on the war -- that it may forfeit 500 -- hours or important in any time out there thinking. And fruit tree to your your landscape out -- Think features all the table -- are native to mild climates like hours since pictures don't need to chilling hours. -- person in that we -- here. But again goes straight to the apples peaches payers are almost certain victory means I'm sure that you look at the chilly hours that the like you should look no recourse. We start looking at -- varieties on the Internet. I'm looking at LP mail order on the Internet. -- wide variety of our troops. I don't just look at description of abolitionist it is how big it is it does or how sweet it is he also look at those chilling hours and -- -- work. That it will be good for our area but I suspect at this juncture we may see and it's not yet so who knows it may turn and stay warm for the letter. But that we -- That we get -- -- -- large number chilling hours and some of the plant that are shall remember I used to look. And peaches in the New Orleans area. Cynics are really being Jews should -- as peach. The -- -- to need to around 350 to -- -- and chilling. And something we always get relief on the side forces and -- -- produced poorly on years it didn't get in a chilling hours. This year a marshals variety like that may turn around and do really well so if you if you're going. Apples peaches are players are on in early in your landscape and that. ID -- on the problem that extra chilling hours argue on that this spring the flowering as especially heavy. And production may be especially good this year you know that it because of the amount of boldly go. Actually ours so that should know how many hours that occur in the incher. Under about 45 degrees at the plant are doing. Remarkably enough the answer actually measuring and adding up the number of hours on both 45 degrees again. The answer as to appreciate and Nicole and adding it. And that they don't a couple of hours. That's what calls is a problem if they do an amount powers. They are fine and often times appreciate how we're all our of this around. And -- -- the plants which is something that should they -- I think growth looked just like in the other living thing. They've got to deal urban surroundings and -- to be able to their surroundings. And not to be able to proceed. I can't react to their surroundings and so. -- in the -- these plans are doing. Is are. Receiving the cold and adding up the number of hours and they've got to get the right now or are called it chilling hours so again. A lot of that this -- can remind. In which lead to. Remind me that chilling hours this year writing books so it take a quick break if you got -- question for this morning -- the program -- Giving information that you need to make your plants grow as usual and -- I thought oh it's intentional. 187 year out struggle on the Orleans calling here at. -- told free any action. Eight -- nine yearly trip and he will be back right after this morning thanks for tuning in that regard -- -- the end it'll appeal vigilant and and we're talking about though all the things that go on and mark Martin's at landscapes as part of the year the -- Question about something that failure thinking about doing workers planting our tree collection elections something going on -- with. If you need to information 260187. B is and number that you need to call out on the local Orleans call area. Cold and full free at 866889. 0870. -- we don't get too much -- we do people coming in today but -- going to be ending up then. -- time maybe years Israel simply -- -- I noticed that your not much watering. I don't agree about planting at this time the strike spell special bank urged everybody get their trees and shrubs planted back in November and December. All think it's great it's. Wonderful because his -- them in the planting trees from the ground and just walk away from an earlier question about banking committee is a great time the year -- comedians and other party trees -- as well. Certainly not too late we are still being ideal planting trees and -- That we enjoy about planting the time of the year is so wonderful about providing adequate -- all about -- week. This time of the year we just don't have situations -- -- long -- -- well what do we do in the upper or even into the string man evolved and I'm currently ample and maple fairly -- A month so again another great advantage of planting fall Clinton during the winter -- -- -- wonderful regular rains that we get this time of the year. I'll this year if you were remember what -- way true where we were giving inches and inches of rainfall through December. In January -- one of the wettest winters on record. A -- occurred last year. And that treatable problem for plants all the machines and at those -- -- -- with -- winter are stressed out lot. And so the rain we're getting today is not -- and so far so good as torture. But again. -- as -- about a actually any data -- I remember that this is really typical forest -- -- in the wintertime and it turned out there. Are putting in -- ten. Around -- trees or shrubs and ground covers in the party is -- on the bomb went cold. Is great for planting out because again egregious corporate treatment currently -- remember stripper and wore a little bit and walk -- -- I'm -- full with that all three of the next few months all the trouble then. And they -- as a wonderful job -- -- forty XT plant a tree and people when people flocked to -- -- -- spring fever hits and everybody feel like it's time to get everything in the background a tree planted and people were looking at trial there immediately after that and you gonna be constantly for a single that -- trying to treat underwater propping get a true. Via the hotter weather -- again little rainy period like today mining this how wonderful it is. A during the wintertime. We put a Porsche brokers we don't have water.
