Keep your winter flowers looking great

  View this email in your browser Winter Flower Beds Annual flower beds can be a wonderful welcome into a community or property, but during transitional periods, it can be difficult to dial in the bed’s environmental conditions. If a disease plagues the flowers, they can quickly become an eyesore. Here are a few tips to help keep flowers performing their best and help prevent pathogens from causing garden destruction:  Plant flowers at the appropriate time. If winter flowers are planted too early and temperatures are still in the 90’s, they will stress and be more susceptible to disease. Wait until after the first of October to plant beds for best transplant success.  Closely monitor irrigation with the temperature fluctuations in the fall. Weekly adjustments may be needed as temperature may be in the 90’s or in the 60’s. Limit overhead water from contacting foliage of bedding plants, which could encourage foliar diseases in some plants. If disease has been a problem in past seasons, rotate plant varieties for a few years to help reduce disease pressure, or seek out resistant varieties now available from some nurseries.  Change out planting media (soil) every few years to help prevent build‐up of salts and help prevent disease pressure from becoming too great. Check for adequate draining under bedding soil. Sometimes soil under the bed may become hard, preventing water drainage out of bed. Saturated soils are a huge invitation for disease infection!  Have a licensed applicator apply fungicides only after a positive pathogen has been identified. Nothing is more frustrating than spending time and money on a treatment only to find out the product did not have activity on the pest wreaking havoc on... read more

How much is too much water for desert trees?

View this email in your browser Roots – The Starting Point for Healthy Trees Roots are what help determine if you have a healthy tree or one that will decline and die. You many never see your tree’s roots but they are an important part of your tree especially for desert trees. Knowing how much water is enough without over-watering is essential to helping your tree grow properly and to keeping your water bills low. Ursula Schuch from the School of Plant Sciences at the University of Arizona worked with the Maricopa Agricultural Center to find out how much water desert trees really need.They performed a study using nine different species of trees using three different amounts of water. A tree from each type was either watered wet, medium or dry for the study over a four year period.The trees studied were the Afgan pine, Arizona cypress, Rio Grande ash, Red Push pistache, Southern live oak, palo verde hybrid, velvet mesquite, desert willow, and Texas ebony. What they found out from measuring tree growth was that six of the nine species can be grown at any of the watering treatments (wet, medium or dry) to a similar size. This means that less water for these trees is generally not detrimental. The six trees that did well regardless of the water treatment they received were the mesquite, palo verde, desert willow, pistache, oak, and Texas ebony. The ash, cypress and pine declined after two years of the dry treatments. The study results will be used to help develop irrigation recommendations for young desert landscape trees. What this means for trees... read more
