    Default The Green Stuff

    I am so proud of my grass this year! What a difference 560 pounds of lime makes!

    I wish we had some of your clay with its strong ionic bonds that hold moisture and minerals like iron that make grass soo nice and deep green.
    When its the majority like yours it really benefits from that lime opening up those tight bonds a little like our excess sand and shell.

    I HAVE PREACHED FOR YEARS that clay is the best thing to add to your lawn over here on the coast.
    The scent of fresh cut grass is plants screaming.
    Abolish Lawns and golf courses!
    Suppression of grasses is an inter-kingdom hate crime.

    Actually, it is growing back in from when they guy that trimmed them up, did that to them! Believe me, I told him about it...he won't be doing it again. It was the boxwood, and as you know, it really is a slow grower! The crepe myrtle got the myrtle bark scale last year and I had to have it treated twice for that and then I had it cut way back to get rid of all the black ugly limbs and then my guy washed the black crap off the rest of it. I said if it got it again this year, I was going to have it removed and put something else it. Almost all of Conway was affected with it. Some bad stuff! My crepe myrtle was as high as the house! and was a nice tree!

    The sooty mold (black) is a secondary symptom. the aphids or scale , take in plant sap use the proteins and excrete the excess sugars ( honeydew ) they can not use. this sugar is the food that feeds the sooty mold spores.

    Its common to see and when the entire community has an issue your only choice may be a preventative treatment in May each year with a systemic. I have used Bayer products on Dahlias and Roses which are notoriously susceptible to some pest in the humidity of the south. A small tree may take an entire container and cost like 20.00 for the treatment but will have your tree shining when others are black and nasty. see the PDF for moreSCALE.pdf

    Thanx for info, my yard man treated my tree after he washed the gunk off and so far so good! I have noticed other CM trees in the neighborhood where people did not clean the gunk off have very few blooms on them this season.
