-- and thanks for joining me on the Garden Show will be out talking about what's going on in here gardens and lanes for the couple of our services. Your opportunity something going on it'll help with two -- -- and gardening information in the make sure that you there we go at the make sure that you know what to do to do it right the first time. Always say you -- Workers are what a frustrating things about gardening is it you try to do something and in the you do the wrong thing you can do the wrong thing or what you do it didn't work right. You chose the wrong plant that didn't do well there. You chose the wrong pet society and control the pastor trying to deal with. So time zone without the of the knowledge that we need to make these decisions. If you've ever been in this situation where you try something and work won't -- that knowledge comes and so if you're going to be doing some question about some pest problem one on. Today getting a good diagnosis and learning about it's very important here looking to plant despite the intense heat of of midsummer. Whether -- right now we continue to -- -- summer vegetables that the super hot weather vegetables that we can put in the ground that I'm in the year. And nurseries are still full of right now warm season bedding plants that -- eat this -- the year. So if you got the fortitude to get them -- -- -- Planting there is actually playing and the time of the usual course. We all know that that will -- -- be planted. -- through the heat of summer. And if you didn't think about it in some tropical plants to your landscape. You -- -- while some homes that the queen Holmes did not fare well. In this last winter outside of the area well itself for war and area. So while some of the -- all of them -- might have been lost but we're still giving them a few more weeks -- you've got some homes that sprouted out -- -- the picnic date homes also took a big hit. Of this summer. Army's use this past winners of this summer they're just kind of sat there. If they have sprouted up by in late July at the latest all the time -- would -- give them. This -- remove -- move on but if you are replacing McQueen Paul. You certainly have an option. Of planting another queen Paul if you like that exact book in the shape and you know how that all ones but if you lost queen on the couple. You may also take a lesson from instantly upon an intestinal hole. -- that she an apartment that's all for them -- for a few years only to watch it die in our freeze that's just not acceptable then you wouldn't want it shoes and all. And go back and location because they're all. That are hard and that ought to all of the warnings and by that freezes this winter a sable palms and Wendell Holmes and -- all stunning three. And that -- number. As a result of freezes so do keep in mind that he wanted to plant tropical injures elephant -- that machine -- Paul Clark discusses. -- of these plants thrive in the heat. This time you don't mind the heat they enjoy it. It's a -- in them at this time of the year it's entirely possible to do about the only thing that were kind of laying back on. Our hearty trees and from so this is not the best time you know plant to shade tree your flowering tree or -- do some major landscaping shrubs and you -- I mean it's people's civil does that mean -- landscape in the summer time. The answer is you actually can't insist. A more difficult time for these hearty trees and shrubs the settled in and try to get established. During the intense -- they don't enjoy the -- the way the top locals do they're kind of like the rest of the certificate. Summer as best they cancel -- stressful on them and plant them in mid summer with the stress of trying to settled in to a new location in your landscape on top of the weather stresses because of the heat and everything going on. Is useful for playing the deal with so if you have an option. Of waiting to put here hardy trees and shrubs lines in ground covers and into the weather begins to cool down later on October or November. October November to February march is our main planting season. Offer the majority of -- landscape plants trees and trumps. A ground covers and lines that are party. But again if you're looking at planting summer vegetables or summer bedding plants if you're looking at planting -- this is the time of the year Wheatley -- Our lawn grasses the Bermuda Saint Augustine is always yet. Incentive people love the heat as you know by mowing as much your are right now they love the really -- a -- this time of the year so great time for doing repair work on your long laying a new law on and so forth. But again not for hardy trees and from -- wanna give -- -- on. All right folks if you got a -- question this morning I am here to make sure you get the information you need. To make your plants grow as good as you want -- to that phone number once in his 2601870. We're gonna head to the phone to talk to Bruce. -- and from mid city -- good morning. Lauren and I have made out pretty big promotion tree at our back yard. And I have all -- indoor plants. And unpredictable emotion tree prepared that your blog and then there. -- However I have one problem on the air being. Dirt covered with these details. -- all over. You know up I mean it is just they also are very small. Armed -- guys are -- thumbnail. And they don't appear to be eating plants are the holes and our you know our. Yeah but parties -- -- harmful reports. At this point no. Bruce does it not -- damaging your plants. So snails and slugs or an issue when they're chewing -- plants and when they're not they're not an issue. Now you need to monitor the situation carefully. And because we know sales influence on the political wide variety of plants they cannot hear from the foliage of the plants that you have now this year. So there wandering around looking for something -- crawling on the planet but they're finding them unsuitable and so they're just moving on without -- So by luck of the indoor plants that you put out here. Apparently just are not that the pace of the snails and slugs are you it would have been -- -- as they crawl crawl some so that. Mean she relaxed groups that monitor the situation for damage and if you begin to see holes and leaves of the bio means you need that -- if you're not comfortable having the -- -- around and you anticipate the possibility. -- damaging you decide what you wanna do something against them now. In an effort to control -- certainly may. That baker techniques that we utilized news dates. And I'll use iron. Possibly look for the active ingredient iron phosphate Bruce that's below least toxic affect his ailments like that we can utilized. Also utilized the date and the utilized here traps. Do not only dropped the population by the -- but also to monitor the population and do the -- -- Rasheed go out in the evening. It's skating that's because -- -- mostly active night. And you would think plastic bowls down to their rim in the ground and heal them halfway full year on the beer won't do. And and that will track a lot of snails in two on the -- and then there. And again you can drop the population is attracting a bunch of snails but you can also mark in the population. So again you've got a two pronged attack trapping. But the monitor and to reduce the population. And iron phosphate -- That you put out as well to help kill off some of those males. It. OK Bruce thank you so much for the call. All right folks if you regarding question that's what I'm here for and I'm -- at the boomers and beyond its work out your old. At the -- trains that are 4545. Williams boulevard. From this morning until 5 o'clock and lots of great stuff to see and -- and -- too soon because we'll be back with more the Garden Show run activists. -- and I'm coming you live this morning from the -- kind sinner and that 4545. Williams boulevard that Williams boulevard in lake. I'll -- the beyond expo is going on today that kicks off at 8 o'clock this morning. This afternoon. They've got just a huge number of senators here. All very interesting and -- stepped in and haven't entertainment stage with well -- -- a greater. Age. There's a -- state lecturing from nine. 940 fives if you -- not. Seem asking some of your party questions off the -- -- I'll be now -- the program from nine until I'm 45 after the radio show. Either it's not going on here. At the option considered the boomers and on X spoke. Back to him -- From a cell in the area good morning might. I guess there -- -- -- she wore -- pocket but set no actually. That now has all. It well -- a ball program. And equally split it at. The thoughtfully. -- -- beat you at all. And it came back there and now. It will get. Out of here. -- -- -- -- I use. Any miracle on -- On schnabel knew it was followed these shovel or -- day. It is not via the lock to make sure I'll get up. Bob has a lot of -- block and sure they get the or a pop to short movie literally well. Now. One more just more complex. Law and I was gonna cut that -- -- the other side. Now. But that it was not the crown ladies out there and you can trot -- state. Mike -- pot you know I had the gas and since you know I'm on the show what you're asking questions -- -- yes. -- guess that this is still cold related you know. People when we had a freeze in the spring came in the sector started to grow out I got tons of questions from people -- -- co -- that structure that's. In our recommendations were to not touch the citrus trees until late June until around about this time of the year and think what people would. -- -- -- they get this will wait until she can see what's that want to live now. And the reason for that can take this long for citrus trees to fully express the damage that was done to them. -- winter freezes. And so it's hard to move to translate. A freeze the freeze that occurred in January to issues that you're having with your tree here in June. But it is not unexpected. Those of us -- seen these trees go -- freezes before note that citrus trees can actually show their image. All the way up until late June so we delay opening until late June to make sure all of the beam which has manifested itself before we get in there prune. So that's I think you probably are going on Mike this is just. A continued reaction of the -- that was internal damage that was done to the trees internal structure. That's been causing problems since the trees to succumbing to it of course is nothing to do about that this is not something you have any control over. The damage is done you can't spray for this she had nothing do with the fertilizer that you put out so Mike don't worry about taking responsibility that you did something wrong. I will say this for rabbi that was listening when we do fertilize trees might we gently don't use a shovel to make the hole. Get that Schobel -- -- slices down cuts through routes. So what we rather use -- we'd rather just sprinkle the fertilizer on top of the ground. Or you can use a piece of pot and make holes in the ground for the for them holes but the trouble played. Wolf sliced through some of the surface routes and so it's not the preferred way. The -- Mike no responsibly on your part here this is all freeze damage. An unfortunate that he could do it sounds like your tree is that while we gonna make it. But we use our. Oh. How well Mike that's bad news an odd social unity. All right chipping might appreciate the call. And don't forget if you got regarding questions citrus are always a topic that humans on the long on with your sectors trees. Right now for draw this occurred around here for right reasons. -- -- -- -- -- -- On the phone numbers 260187. The outside the local New Orleans all year you can call in hole for me and that -- free number is -- -- 90870. Up next is Mike from -- Mike good morning. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- don't care right now are pretty frequently. I what you're talking about. You maybe. And as the questions. We all know by Mike or -- or butter. And up landed green on a year ago right after Katrina. One of them has at all like a lock -- got to be over forty. Joining the war purple reached when it will he. Generally speaking no -- -- all of them are fairly popular for use around pools. Because of the structure of their roots is on the typical trees that we girl like maples and Helms in magnolia is their roots are. -- -- get bigger and bigger every year just like the trunk in the brain just get bigger and bigger. Every year so eventually get these large mass of roots on these older trees. That may -- com creator push up against things but Paul trees a radically different they're very different from our typical trees and their numbers are small -- about the size of your little finger and -- never bigger than that no matter how old home is the average system the -- individual routes. Or safe fibrous and so they're less destructive and so that's why you often times -- almost planted with concrete nearby like you'll look at the I date palms down canal street downtown and those -- openings in the concrete what they're talking about the concrete -- the -- is the mobile home. Is just not destructive that -- gently say you should be in good shape Mike I would be overly concerned. Well it stopped grow. Of this -- it's so much taller than the other truth our our bottom lows in Oak Creek. 148. RE PO that you were probably he well futures. Where there. Of course -- genetic differences among. Its just like genetic differences among people. Experts. So. Much. In the modern. And that -- that hurt me this thing out there and there's room so -- -- If you know. Which differences in. -- and -- something out one location of all. Mr. it's. All. Among. The ball. Home I'm like O line and search for all. Descriptions. Which. -- And all the and and. I appreciate it I'd better get time but our interest began planning M a rule they're -- all matters don't know when it in the parliament I don't work. It is more than worth its here's like if you do email and easily email me is to Google mining Google -- -- click on the first link that comes out that apparently LSU webpage you can see my email address you can email from here you know my interest in the coming from you know program. I have a great action on growing relaxes and does a feudal culture -- this is about growing ambulances buying the bulls. Implant and so email me information -- doubles and it might. -- Our -- call might. Why are folks that conference. Although latest breaking news on pain in the newsroom. To make sure you know what's going on good morning down at Florida and it is steam out there this is how we are in midsummer. As always we are hard work and work. -- user. Yeah that's it. Early it's our week and early which. So. Later on. It's it's well worth. -- earlier. Getting out there in innings of work done so product garden during the milder -- over. A time of the day especially in the morning or late afternoon it's -- ill or it's -- that. Changed clothes and wander outside and even thirty minutes pulling a few weeds in the few beds ever now again as far better. And sit back and watch and things get out of hand because once and that I in this time of the year you are not giving it out well we eat or Rome -- this can take you an hour hour and a half. In ninety degree weather so again -- that that the -- to this time of the year and keeping our our landscapes and gardens in good shape in minimizing. The time that we stand out in the garden in the heat. Is to to everything as promptly as possible. And of course I am the world's greatest later but not too much. Because you know when you can we got -- ten minutes. But you don't and then two weeks later it's gonna take you and how worked weed out that. It is the 2008 it's like so keep up with your mowing as well this time of the year. It's very easy. You know put it off and it's hard enough now we're getting in the record rains are getting right now. And trying to get out there and get our mowing done -- in that situation right now on the future is or -- along simply will trial with all this rain. And I you just can't get in there Mosul. That and then in and get that done as well well when you hand. And that'll that'll help you out to keep an -- so again. The trick this time of the year -- stay on top of the steps that need to stay on top and again that's gonna mostly be things like weeding. The weeding is the biggest thing and mowing those are two biggest things this time of the year that we really focus on. I'm not like to -- hand before we have stepped and so frequent. Effort. And -- -- -- for the are -- folks if you've got regarding question this morning I am here. As your free -- consult them pictures that you call in with your gardening questions all of the program go by I always say. Without getting that information that you need to make your plants grow is it is you want them to the phone number to call in this 260. 1872601870. If your -- the local New Orleans calling area. You can call and -- free at 866889. 0870. I was mentioning earlier that we got some great cool season bedding plants in the warm season -- plants that we complaint this time of the year. And not doing courage it if you have issues with summit here flower beds. Made via this problem if you disease moved in. A cause some damage maybe in six calls an image or just some -- plants that have played out is for instance. We'd love to plant petunias. And march April even as late as may. But this group continues don't really enjoyed intense heat of mid to late summer and so it's not a news little Lucy petunias. Sort of playing now to some degree. As we move into June and certainly as we move into July so if you play it's that the team is particularly in the in the fall in the lingered -- this point. -- -- some things back in March -- April they've been nice but the beginning. Past their prime at this point. And you wonder should I stick with the petunias are reviving come back the answer is. We still have two months of -- he's in the days and seventies it might at least. And so -- that are kind of winding down right now are not gonna come back they're gonna get worse and worse as we went through the so keep that in mind. Is major pulling out some of these plants that finished or if you lost. -- plants to diseases or insects -- that. -- -- caller in big containers are hanging baskets. To brighten up your patio or future now pennies. In acts again don't hesitate -- capture or freeze. And you'll see it is an amazing selection. A beautiful flowering plants that are compliant landscape. And you can enjoy. Through the rest of the summer plant now. The last couple over or November. Or real good thing if you're -- complaint at this point all right let's hit the phones we have -- mark calling him up first. Market morning thanks for -- in the aren't true. Good morning today. A live oak. About eight logo or -- year old. Around the launch creepy about maybe thirty inches in diameter they recently that it has term. And I think to figure out of Kuwait free. To treat the tree couldn't surrounding areas. You know law should contacted you you. There are two options here mark if you if you had your house under. On. And it would be good. -- opening the -- on where they need to be aware that there's. That they're in the tree just for the sake you protect your house and -- so you. Like it should race. With -- or. Contract. I'm hinted that treatment. Are urgently. Trying intriguing trees well. So that's -- possible that the treatment. Options. The fastest most effective treatment is to -- -- improperly ruled the tree. And you inject the phone -- Scarier for the sides of the new injected into the holes it fills up the the the my distance like the tree. And kill all all -- -- so that can be done by professional. The other option is to use -- system. And again -- them by professional and in this you know actually drew the tree. You at the the would date around the tree impregnated with that aside the termites they think the colony. And it strike the main colony so those two major options -- -- also work with that much slow acting. Because they relied on the might find that date in in bringing debate and bring in the sport. But your options and market -- -- company. Does not do that if treatment -- -- on nutri care company in the year on the lights are. And then was under trees pages and other things. Our ports -- entry -- I -- you know. Due to. You to call. Yeah. If all -- to be one of the big box stores and get -- -- by. Would that work well or -- -- chemicals am. In those would that. Is that actually get there what a my company. You know -- interviews professional was and what they're doing and Albert but it out of it and monitoring. Americans that this is there. You know if you are going to give it -- -- -- debates -- it's. Ultimately the tree. That way beyond the average order by putting -- in the ground. So if you can find some systems that that you want to give -- try. By all means but again this is an incredibly valuable tree. And it's certainly something that you wanna hear we now. Putting such. A yeah. With this series. -- -- -- -- Typical British folks stay -- or the art show won't be back right after these messages. Art and we're talking gardening and if you got something going on we disease and six. -- regarding -- -- I'm a mixture it. The information you need to make your plans as you want the NC and that phone number in the 0260. 187. B that's. All from a cellphone in the area Johnnie Morton. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It is because it. -- Call the court should not you will know. What got -- Will do two things Johnny number one let me tell you I have a really good. Fact sheet on sweetie buying control because unfolding witty lines. Is extremely common in our area have a lot of rain and finds out control mile climate and rainfall they just take off. So. Don't forget to email me -- sent me an email and asked for the information. On sweetie buying and focus goes -- far more detail. Of what chemicals used techniques to use -- like -- here but for your specific question about vines growing up archery. Well here's how you deal with those the vines have to be connected to their roots down on the ground to live. So if you will go around that tree in count all the -- off about four to six inches above missiles surface. That all the fines up in the tree will die because you separate them from their roots so boom they're gone now if you felt like climbing up there pulling them out of the tree you cool led. But that's not critical once the bonds are dead they're dead they'll eventually you know kind of come down on the tree on their own. Now the problem is a sponsor can -- my heart -- -- grow back up the tree again soon have to kill the stumps at the mines left behind. There's a purpose like cold try to hope here it's spelled ER IE CLO. He why are likely appear sold under a variety of brand names cut mine and stump killer rush killer rush speak on the and you can paint just on to that first surfaced. Of the stump of the -- So -- -- the sold -- spray just it will paint brush dipped it in the bottle and paint that -- on top of that first look at surface of that -- and that will kill the stump. So Johnny between cut the minds off and the -- -- the -- died in the painting the -- -- that it appears you'll eradicate the -- now you have to revisit that area several times new mines may grow up and keep control once you achieve it nature just wanna leave it alone. But that would be a great way -- a handle on at that point. And then he can go on from there John you don't forget to email me. And get that traction. OK okay let let me I'm out on the spot. -- -- -- -- -- -- Johnny Johnny it's not critical don't pull over don't stop don't do anything. Just remembered email me remember my name being realistic -- -- -- Google being -- click on the first -- to bring in my web page and you can email me from the air and I'll see you this information in the by email you have to run down John -- -- LT. All right you you take care -- appreciate each call and folks stay tuned -- or art show coming up. Right after this quick break good morning we're talking gardening we're gonna head right back to the phone lines first up is curry. Calling from under after a -- good morning. -- Kerry. And getting this in any. It couldn't get -- tree. Heck no he wanted it to three. I haven't had -- but it's nothing but you can't change. A look what should I do it get out that I. If accurate is this is not probably growing condition issue really -- easy issue. So it is is a real susceptible to a fungus disease called -- spot. And one or expunge it's a rose bush it to fully meets the rose was the rose trumps all of that leaves. And we've got. -- -- So far these last few months rainy weather encourages black spots -- -- rose is apparently one of the roses that are just really susceptible black spot. Now it's gonna come out with more more -- -- if you wanna give that little fertilizer and helping or some kickers new growth to come out and replace what's been lost that's fine to do with your rose bush eventually. Is gonna come out with some good new growth and replace what was lost. But it's a disease issue now spreading now it's gonna do any good for that particular outbreak but if you wanna keep -- -- protected for the rest of the summer don't have a lot of black spot problems -- what you need to do is begin the -- Roosevelt once every seven to ten days. With a fungicide in you can move by your local -- garden center. And just tell us that few of fungicide for your roses and they'll show you products they have that that -- it's important you can't spray occasionally. If you get a -- black spot you have to spray. Every seven to ten days from now until November to control them black spot while problem or you can just say well now that I know what's going on I'm just leave the rose on its own it's always gotten better it's always feel that sound. I don't have to fuss over -- It's gonna come on back -- -- -- it's going to be a you -- decide in what do you want to try to treat for it or just let the rose try to recover on its home. -- -- -- Shot that it at me and it that means that it's not in Google it I explained it to look there. They're going on now -- yet here they are on now they -- yellow -- law. -- -- I'm sorry I'm up against our top of the hour break and some gotcha question on roses aren't meant to do well. Figured out folks at Nike for tuning into the first -- don't hold another hour of the Garden Show if you're holding on -- -- on. -- you can call back on to come back for the guards and will be back with more partners are activists.
