Shade trees, vines, dormant spray, fertilization, soil, and irrigation were addressed as well. The seminar might still be going on if the owner's wife hadn't interrupted reminding us that the seminar should have ended 1/2 hour earlier.
Tomorrow, Farmer MacGregor plans to tackle the crepe myrtle. I'm glad the seminar sparked him. I hope images of the crepe myrtles at The Dallas Arboretum inspire him.
How do YOU spell it? Crepe myrtle or crape myrtle?
|Ajax the wonder pruner!|
Ajax is now around 205 pounds at 2 years old. Pruning has been part of his existence from the start. Fig, wisteria, roses, and, yes, apricot have all been on his menu. I wonder if Ajax could be the cause of the damage to the apricot rather than a suspected borer. That mug looks pretty guilty to me.
