The potting mix and hanging basket probably drains pretty well so again the book and he has been dealing with the rain the waters draining through. I don't see real issue with the rain for a container -- -- at this -- Republican he has not ever looming. They -- cyclically or -- cycles on the balloon for awhile and they quit for a while and they -- for awhile. Generally speaking we expect to get a decent far off of our group in these in the spring and early summer. Very few if any flowers off of them all summer long and then we'll get another flush of flowers and the off all of the year. The old Republican that he is the longer you have that the envy of the -- tend to bloom. If you put it in the ground it's gonna take offerings -- not much -- -- more for you. I'm keeping it in container than it would putting in the round and -- goes -- too cold but in the ground anyway so I have. Have a great fact -- time with great information it tells you -- water fertilized pest problems for those problems I even have.

Williams boulevard in Kenner. -- it really wonderful experience to be outside anyway -- wander around the air conditioning in the comparable. Alrighty -- said that the phones don't forget if you got a gardening question. That's what I'm here for right now to 60. 187 the is the number to call and leave your thoughts on the local New Orleans calling area 8668890870. Is the toll free number that you can use -- we got Libya. I'm calling from Algiers -- at -- Good morning and how you. When he recently suggested an account Picayune and we treat our crepe myrtle for the product called -- I made. Clark hit -- Amid slow rate at this and insecticide applied it to trench at the pace of the tree. And the insecticide is absorbed into the trees -- expect them. It's into the trees at -- system and then that materially in the apply to the ground. That Mitchell moves inside the plant out into the foliage and so when -- myrtle and that's the main reason we're treating. With the medical -- -- for Kurt -- that in the insects that suck the -- and all of that. Ultimately -- mold. All of corporate myrtle trees and so if you've been having a problem with Sitting -- and promote it in the plants in this is a great way to control those statements. Well I have so that department just navigating to you know. I'm just getting. After receiving instructions if you -- waterlogged ground. With all -- rain we've been you know getting I would. Wondered if you get the chance. That I do it. Well -- the main reason for that of course is nothing technical. It's just that the ground is saturated with water when you were the solution it's not gonna go down into the soil. -- -- not a safety issue or anything else it just means it won't work as well because the ground -- full of water so when you -- popular sink into the really well. But just even a few days without rain coming out there right after rain but even a couple of days after all the ground. This drink enough we should get them to go into the ground. Okay so that's the only reason yeah. Just wanna make sure that that mature now you see soak into the soil. And the root system where -- the war. Okay. Okay been limited -- weekend. Good deal and in the future -- as you probably know could you relate relate. In the future do this around about April or may and even better control. I can -- that thank you so much. Lydia thank you so much for the call. Idea that is Matthew calling -- -- Matthew good morning. Morning. I have a question about. Plant teen -- out toward. We have a number. And -- debate going on mine now about what those -- rules altered zone and he actually. Retained the war of the plant can continued people you know. -- Weren't. As the so oil in the pot right now rule whether that just -- war disputed ingredient. Well it definitely holds water from mosquitoes to breed him. That's a given. It. Actually they're more likely to do harm being hood in here's the reason line. We have our our plants are in -- with drainage holes in those three holes are there to allow the water flow rate. Out during -- and indeed want. Speakers in excess of waters in the cancel it up -- to help the root systems in Brussels on -- plan when -- water. Water flowing freely away which is supposed to do it's now accumulated right underneath. And your markets back open this well. But what. But does that water now keeps muscles injury for an extended period and so plant. Are more prone or don't like century it's oils. Are often -- going to be an issue if you -- on -- and -- has water in Kabul on so it's a mosquito issue and that alone is the reason not to use officers but it also can be unhealthy for the and that's the reason. I'm not use officers don't put -- went on wouldn't acts of pots in Spain or even cause the raw. So it's your pilots boosted up on little -- -- on these boosters. Actual cursory. Use -- double breakers on the booster. So there's space between pot and he would of that and it'll keep it from all. What would injects a not so often not an issue at my house but that's that is measured. Home. Well that's what I want to know security place I go online to get more of probation about the elected point two and other regional. I'm sure there is Matthew just find your favorite search engine. And then type in saucers under container plants and see what kind of most of pops up. -- and I don't seem like an idea that was for like indoor plants and all that. -- you avoid the carpet getting what. Indy. Sometimes outside people -- it's. Well it's against the are. You haven't written for the UT thanks for the call. For Mississippi Europe and. I'd like I have a question concerning them all I've got several varieties that I haven't pot. And it seemed like I noticed a pattern where are we believe sprouts. It'll come up and get nice and green and then gradually it starts to dry. And kinda stayed away. So I don't know what -- so what you're saying is it and that's what kind of homes. Are right -- -- and maybe aren't artists -- know every every ball every time it's in the new group the new. -- -- -- -- So your palms have not been able to grow at all. Well I mean. Seems like one lethal kind of they mature and -- green and may be the other one died. Way okay so you're saying a new leaf comes out and the -- stays healthy but then an old leaf on its correct OK that's not full bird. It's perfectly natural. So the issue is. When you -- -- in containers like that the root systems limited and the roots can only support so many rounds so every time and in front comes out and cold -- has to be sacrificed for the new from because -- roots can't. Accommodate that many rounds if you want you all have more on plant them into the ground. Or plant in the large containers larger root system. And will be able to or more wrong. RK that it now thank you. Already -- thank you for the call. -- -- folks see by the clock -- my -- take our half hour news right now and that ketchup on the latest breaking news Don James is in the newsroom. To make sure you know what's going on around the area and around the world good morning -- -- about the it's it's thank you for joining me I'm not come -- that's level issue here and there.

So can you recommend something or actually it was a bad -- So are you seeing -- And asked out of made out of webbing like on the end of the branches. Not I don't even actually you know the one. This attack intimately attached to barrier and. And what kind of damage on the calls. Well. Well if they're not causing any damage than you were. Like. Multiple bullet when you see just pick it up and drop on the ground. Or room and -- for -- meet them all but there's -- and putting out pesticides. Insecticides. You know what we're not releasing its public caution to and worms it is not common problem on her marbles scholar at IDC. Is that the worms have been eating them were holes. Think crawling up -- on the -- attached themselves in the pew paid it eventually turn into -- ball. So that's probably all that's going on but if they if the -- of them are you just remove them. Are a great. Are right and good news there it's a moving along with her calling from -- aren't as good morning. Good morning and then today -- And I enjoyed shall. Look on what better way to get rid of Paula told people query. Well earnest it depends on the situation. So where is giving you'll. While in the right in the orbit there are selected ranks -- out there on the market. The lancet in the box of them -- vote. Com. Herbicides selectively kill -- but -- alone. -- France's. And you'll find -- like rats killer. Over the top. That have these materials in them. And you can use those to suppress. Some -- and is probably your best bet would beat -- like over the top and things like that. Re label carefully make sure that the clients in the are all on the label being tolerant -- achievements in the plant's name. That are in -- on the label that you can -- -- -- those points in the picture won't hurt them. And that's okay plants on labels. You can -- -- And the -- will selectively. -- Rants while. Ornament so stop by your -- owners free help and you're looking for select. -- -- A selective killer and then look at their products that will kill rats but not on -- -- looking for. Now to help you more killer but -- because torpedo. -- I agree that she discussed -- full and it's out of control long. I mean under every situation if you want to -- -- -- -- just emailed -- -- Google my name and -- the first when it comes -- And email from -- there and I'll -- All right there is a ball. Yet next up we have in this calling from home this morning. Good morning. -- wandering home. About seven blight Alec extending your involvement in the back and for a field day. And I found not motivated and -- Died because it doesn't like. I wanted to know. How long would be -- went up and you think -- Baylor. You can plant something else in the same place he could plant oak Brooke you -- launch point cucumbers you just. Plant tomatoes. It's a snap beans are prone to southern lights so but I'll focus on things like in the cucumber family the. Then there. Okay and not get it to the ground are anything that would get rid of -- -- or. There is a -- like -- That she can treat the soil with when you plan that your next. That's cold -- there are laureates -- yeah. Our RC. Local bar in the ingredient is PC in. And that's the only fungicide we have and that's applied as a drenched controls on the life. There again if you simply rotate. Those tomatoes and things out of that area -- something else then that's another way of dealing with. -- -- -- Well that's that's good news you know -- OK thank you so much. Sure thing Janice. Thank you very much all right okay now let's see we've got Jason Collins from the West Bank hey Jason good morning. A good point -- -- will break. There's an. -- vegetable ornament that many wondered. How much tomatoes at them and the issue here in the before -- -- -- -- them -- -- Where they connect the Internet it and also. And they -- random lottery you know spots on the book policy. Well the cracking or the splitting of the -- a person in the fruit experience faster. And the skin and accommodate. And it splits and those are called out but we'll split commonly right around that flower. Runner up this dam area where -- them a connects at the fruit. Once different cracks like that the issue is that those open wounds can become infected especially when it's real humid and hot like this and the fruit can raw. So when you see here for a split like that you may be inclined to harvest it even if it's green. Goodness knows we have a variety of green tomato recipes from him. Making relish -- seeking utilizes green tomatoes but again if you find they're splitting and rotting. -- then harvest in this in this but if there's nothing you can do about the splitting. And this is something that that tomato is will do on occasion what was your other issue Jason. There. Tomatoes. All that's what the yellow spots that's stink but damage. Jason a little odds and insects feeding on the tomatoes and where they stick their needle like mouth parts and you. At least behind -- yellow -- a mosquito bite on the estimates is he gonna. The tomatoes still edible. It it doesn't affect him humongous -- But it -- -- that all these quietly but let's think about damage but it doesn't affect the eating of the estimates. Thought it's something that the gators they. -- Look for something like 098. That -- from -- and then in spring about every five to seven days. -- -- Jason thanks for the call.

Big market to trees one -- one lineman -- pretty good sized pots of Adam a couple of years I guess there -- a couple feet tall and I got to. They ought to do their group last year. But unfortunately do a good job protecting -- over the winner and I thought they would ever all of these aloft and what have you and then kind of kind of middle spring has -- -- -- -- new branch is coming out right at the base. And now those branches like probably six or eight of them have grown to I don't know 34 feet tall. Only. You lost him and in your line. Okay. Froze and what's going with the sheets at the very base at the wrong is the roots. In the stock model and world lime. Chiseled but now for news on these -- simply Purdue's some commitment to provide the root system. In the works on the trees. Vigorously. But the -- in the lime tree those trees all. The roots.

Actually went back a bit like I'm research note online that he ought to look a it to what might look. It's an adjustment to say it is it's always best and that's what we try to -- self diagnosis but you've never try to. That the self diagnose yourself generally speaking you wouldn't go to the doctor say. -- -- and haven't headaches for the last -- so I went online and it's a brain tumor so that operated on me. So GM you need to confirm whether or not it's actually scale. And I would recommend you take a sample -- -- to the under treatment and take a look at. Thank you so much in folks.
