    Just sprayed with Daconil. It is occurring more on the older needles first and when they die, it goes up the branch to the next set of needles. Thanks Dano

    Cork Bark Elm -Any Virtuals

    A friend of mine has two cork bark elms for sale. One is straight as an arrow with little personality. Any suggestions on cutting it off above the lower left limb. Will it bud back well?

    Bare Root Satzuki Azalea

    The reason for changing in about 6 months would be to avoid the Kanuma breaking down prematurely and root rot. I don't keep the azaleas in this mix all year, every year. I would normally change to something more solid such as Akadama, Turface MVP and bark chips. Does that make any more sense? I...

    Bare Root Satzuki Azalea

    Duane, You are correct, the first satzuki is a Korin, the second is and Issho-no-haru. Thanks for the comments. I removed all the flowers today. With the exception of trimming wild shoots, I just plan on letting the satzuki's grow this year and get used to the South. Dano

    Bare Root Satzuki Azalea

    Certainly not for the faint of heart. This is my first pic of two satzuki azaleas after 3 months in quarantine and four months of tender care. It took close to five months for the new leaves to come all the way to the top. Needless to say, I was worried and watched one twig each day to watch for...

    Japanese Maple Forest

    Thanks guys, I will consider your comments. The grass was dwarf mondo grass out of my front yard, moss might look better. I live near the mountains and rock outcroppings are common. This particular rock had character but may not be in the right setting if it is competing with the trees. Dano

    Japanese Maple Forest

    I agree, I have some smaller trees to add and when I trim back hard, I will choose a focal point. Thanks for the suggestion. Dano
