Re: Is fall happening or not??

I think last Wed it was 90 . This wed, it's 56G , cloudy and wet. Maybe it's just me but seems like spring/summer or later summer/fall/winter, seems like the fast transitions and all I've ever noticed is the looong dog days of summer. Between that, it heats up fast and transitions from hot to cold f...

Re: A No Feed Lawn

On the hellstrip that I reseeded, with no irrigation..... I guess I will try 50/50 strip. One fed and see how much the other declines over the course of a season. I know I won't have extra compost on hand....but will try to just topdress the *unfed* portion for it's 1st year - as well as some alfalf...

A No Feed Lawn

Off topic or on... For our shrubs / flowerbeds, I primarily use compost as my mulch (albeit, I never have enough) The only thing that does get a feed yearly , is the roses, with a good handful of alfalfa in the late spring. Since discovering this forum, I can see there are some lawncare diehards her...

Re: Spring Interest - BULBS

Yeah, the area where I've designated the bulbs are is not for the masses on upkeep. Braiding the daffidol leaves is a option but it does rob energy for the bulb energy so I let them stay green for 7 weeks before the get mowed down. During those weeks I am on my hands and knees with a pair of ARS hed...

Spring Interest - BULBS

I know the fellas at ATY are focused on your green lawns... Who else here plant's spring bulbs (crocus/daffidols) under the lawn in certain areas just to have some nice spring interest bloom after a long wet winter. Or are you guys afraid it's going to mess up the lawn ;-) In one area, I've got at l...

Re: Is fall happening or not??

The weather sure has been wacky this whole year Maybe this weather pattern is the -new norm- . Who knows... Some of my annual flower beds, I've had to replant from scratch. Very wet spring, original plantings stunted or root rot. Lawn loved it though Last year, every weekend, we we're saucing up tom...

Re: Transplanting Plug Pots

Looks like I'm going to have to -sipe- the roots when I transplant. While not root bound, they have bottomed out on majority of the pots.

For areas where new green babies, does one skip the nitrogen regime completely and or just do one app on the last cut ?

Re: Is fall happening or not??

I have no idea what the insect looks like. It looks like a medium sized cockroach with wings... Anyhow, it's been so hot lately, these particular ones have been coming back everytime I've put the hose on it. Not only do they swarm to the surface water, but I've got holes in my seeded hellstrip bed. ...

LOL. Been keeping the hellstrip on the sidewalk watered.....tired of dragging the hose. Been watching the weather forecast like a hawk since Labor day. Feels like it's been like zero precip, aside from the morning dew

Re: Alfalfa is slow release

K. I get it now . PGR can mean both slow or -fast-

I’ve always considered the wording of PGR more on slowing down of growth .

Re: Alfalfa is slow release

Am I reading the terminology right ? Or I'm interpreting growth promoter as different then PGR. When I think of PGR, similar to how a nursery/greenhouse would use PGR to delay certain plants from growing so that it *finishes off* at the right timing for bloom times on Mothers days, etc. Growth Promo...

More reading googling to do. I was googling triacontanol and found one or more threads that said it also is somewhat of a PGR ?

Re: Alfalfa is slow release

I usually add a good handful or 2 to each rose in the spring and mid summer. Was aware of Triacontanol. That substance , figuerd between the 2/3 ratio of water soak and then laying it on, + then the daily water to germinate, it would be well watered in by then. I guess it was a bad then eh ?

Alfalfa is slow release

I have zero peat around and just wanted to topdress a smidge of seeds I have. I soaked some alfalfa pellets and used that as my mulch N should not be a issue as it needs the micro/macro stuff in the soil to do their thing right ? I consider AP more of just soil amendment / OM than as a source of N. ...
