Re: Disease EX Application?

I didn’t make any comment about effectiveness vs. pythium. I have no opinion on that. You said DiseaseEx is a low rate app and that Heritage G has a higher AI percentage, but the two products have identical label specifications. Just want to put accurate information out there for any readers who com...

Re: Disease EX Application?

http://www2.ca.uky.edu/agcomm/pubs/PPA/PPA1/PPA1.pdf According to this study by Rutgers, Wisconsin and Kentucky, azoxystrobin is effective against pythium. DiseaseEx is a Low rate app. You need more punch like Segway, Heritage G, mefanoxam which has much higher AI percentages. If you compare apples...

Re: Want me back for a bit?

Do people ask "What is that?" and "What are you writing?" And then you have to explain "It's cursive, dear," to them? More often I get "Is that a fountain pen?" but only from those old enough to recognize one. The follow-up question is the one I dread: "Can I try it?" If you're a fountain pen user,...

Am I old-fashioned or what? And I still use a pocket watch and a fountain pen, too.
From one fountain pen user to another, welcome back.

Also compare against speedwell. The blue flowers check out.
Yep, speedwell. The heart-shaped seed capsule in photo 3 is another indicator.

Re: white blob of spider web looking thing?

Definitely spider webs. Google grass spider or funnel weaving spider for info. If you take a small twig and tap gently on the web like an insect landing, you may get the spider to rush out of the funnel looking to attack something.

Re: Milorganite 36 lb vs. Classic 50 LB ??

Until recently, the retail bag was 5-2-0, and the pro classic bag was 6-2-0. Then the P content went up to 4% on both, and now both bags are (or soon will be) labeled 6-4-0. So there used to be an advantage in getting slightly more N in the classic version, but that is or soon will be gone. Labeled ...

Re: New sod now has tons of Poa Annua

Based on my experience, it's surely possible that it came in with the sod. My neighbor did a drainage project some years ago, and I allowed them access over my lawn. When the contractor was done, he re-sodded the neighbor's back yard, and my side yard. I said I would seed the ripped-up portion of th...

Re: Anyone Else in Northeast With This Problem?

My star magnolia still has about 10% to 20% of its leaves. I was just noticing that today. It would normally be bare by now, especially with the cold weather for the past week.

Re: Tired of being a slave to my lawn!!!

Right now I'm mowing twice a week, and I need to double cut each time. I'm probably spending 2.5 hours on it each time I cut. Still, I'm leaving windrows and clippings on the lawn. The growth rate of my lawn is tremendous and my mower and frequency of cut just can't keep up.hem look halfway decent,...

Hakone grass is said to do well in shady areas. It spreads a little but not invasively.

Re: Need Recommendations on New Homeowner Lawn Equipment

I took the plunge and ordered a cordless mower on a recent Home Depot 25% off sale--Echo 58 volt battery-operated mower. The Echo and Ryobi battery-operated lines of OPE are both made by the same company, Techtronic Industries. I've only used the mower three times, so these are just preliminary obse...

My main interest is getting something lightweight because I have to carry the mower up steps to reach my back yard. It looks as if the Ryobi 40V 20" weighs about 45 pounds (compared to 68 pou...
