Thumbs up

My very first Rose blooming for Spring 2020!

Considering I planted this last Spring around May. This is very impressive it is blooming this early. I expect it to thrive after using MiracleGro stakes though.

I cut all the roses back, like 6" from the ground, in early December. It was kinda cold then.

I swear that most of them bloomed in a different color!

They are blooming already since you pruned them?

Hard to tell, it could be a fungus. That has been an issue this winter with the crazy weather that we have had. I know I had a fungus along with several neighbors. Just keep an eye on it to see if it gets worse.

Stopped work a few hours early today and put down Prodiamine and lawn pest control. Beautiful day outside. I put down some weed n feed with Atrazine and fertilized the palms, gardenia and juniper around the beginning of the month. Done for now until May. I think.

I did not expect this thread to take off so well!

Next Friday we're gonna have a crew come out and redo the sprinkler valve/actuators. They haven't worked properly in over a year. I also went and bought a Rachio3 sprinkler controller.

I'll post some pics when I get some time. Glad to see everyone's yards greening up!

Anyone else have large areas under trees with mulch? I'm trying to determine the best way to control leaves with the new house. I have two, what I've always called, pine isles that surround two large oak trees. It's a defined area without grass and currently has pine straw and the like. Problem is the sheer number of leaves these trees drop make maintenance of these isles impossible and ultimately just a location to blow leaves into.

I'd like to mulch the areas and have it looking nice, but not sure what to do with all the leaves. Is there an alternative? Possibly even a different type of mulch that can withstand a leaf blower to get the leaves out for collection.

Use double-hammered hardwood mulch, and it's much easier to blow the leaves off the top of the mulch. Pine straw tends to lift/blow with the leaves.

You will get a bit of loss of much each time you blow, but it's pretty small overall.

My Orange tree I planted last Spring but was decimated by a hail storm is absolutely thriving this year! I have pampered her well. Brought her indoors throughout the Freezes we've experienced. It is bursting with blooms! It's inside at the moment because it's been windy. Has the entire Kitchen and Family Room smelling like Jasmine!
