Plant Growth Regulators

View this email in your browser Plant Growth Regulators – What are they? And How Do They Work? When you think about stunted growth, what do you think about? Not generally something positive. But, when it comes to trimming shrubs less, it can be a very good thing.  Who doesn’t want to cut down on their maintenance time and debris removal? Well, this is what plant growth regulators can help with. Plant growth regulators are also known as plant hormones. “There are currently five recognized groups of plant hormones: auxins, gibberellins, cytokinins, abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene. They work together coordinating the growth and development of cells.” (from Plant & Soil Sciences eLibrary)  These plant hormones help with cell elongation, cell division, flowering, and seed germination. Nurseries use them to keep plants uniform and help them from becoming too leggy. So what can this do for shrubs in your landscape?  Since some plant growth regulators block the plant from stimulating growth, it can give you a fuller shrub that needs much less trimming. They’re often applied as a spray on the leaves. It’s absorbed by the leaves and moves to the shoot tips where it slows new growth. This can save you time and money on maintenance.

Is the weather confusing your lawn?

  Bermuda Grass vs Rye Grass in the Spring Do you have a lawn that was overseeded with winter rye? It’s getting close to transition time from rye to Bermuda grass. But, with the weather going from hot to cold to hot again, your rye grass lawn may still be growing. Here’s what you can do to keep it green for a little longer. Or,the other option is to speed up the transition process to Bermuda grass. Thanks to the Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association for the below tips. We are quickly approaching that number, you know, the one that represents what we will be dealing with for the next five months: 100. One hundred degrees is right around the corner and when that temperature arrives, our beautiful green, winter rye grass lawn says, “wow, I don’t like this,” and begins to brown out. But it is actually a good thing since we want our summer turf grass, Burmuda grass, to have a full 100 days of non-competing days to grow. In cooler springs, rye grass can linger, not allowing Bermuda grass access to light and resources like water and nutrients necessary to push out of winter dormancy.  Here are a few tricks to either keeping your rye grass green a bit longer, perhaps in shaded areas, or how to encourage it to spontaneously combust, like it might do at 105 degrees: Hold on to rye grass a bit longer… Raise mowing height in shaded areas, which reduces stress Water more frequently, not the most sustainable practice, but it may help for a few weeks Turf paint- your neighbors will... read more

Are you looking to attract hummingbirds to your yard or open area?

Planting to Attract Hummingbirds Did you know that hummingbirds are attracted to particular flowers? “Hummingbird favorites usually but not always have long, tubular blossoms that are red, orange, yellow or blue, especially blue Salvia species; the shape limits insect access to the nectar inside. Hummers like blossoms with lots of concentrated nectar, preferring sucrose.” (from the hummingbird society) Hummingbirds like to eat insects that live in your yard and can be found around hummingbird plants. So, it’s a good idea not to use pesticides around plants that you want to draw hummingbirds to. Here are some of the plants that can be found in our desert environment that hummingbirds are attracted to: Flame Honeysuckle (Anisacanthus quadrifidus) – 3’x4′ sprawling plant. Deciduous with orange-red flowers that bloom from summer to fall. Baja Fairy Duster (Calliandra californica) – 5’x5′ upright and open plant. Semievergreen with red powderpuffs that bloom from the spring to fall. Red Justicia (Justicia candicans) – 3’x3′ sprawling plant. Evergreen with bright red flowers that bloom from the fall to spring.   Orange Bells (Tecoma hybrid) – 8’x5′ upright shrub. Semievergreen with orange trumpetlike clusters that bloom year-round in frost-free weather. Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia Leucantha) – 4’x4′ rounded shrub. Semievergreen with purple velvety flower that bloom from late spring to fall. These are just a few of the plants that attract hummingbirds. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum has a great little brochure that has a more detailed list of hummingbird plants and other ways to attract hummingbirds to your ourdoor spaces. You can find the brochure here. If you have questions about hummingbird plants or need help with your spring planting, give... read more
