Hi all! Been lurking for a while soakin up all the good info and figure its time for me to weigh in!
Not panicked about anything, water on an every other day regimine, fight fungus every year with walmart fungicide (only my second year) also fertilize w/miraclegro water soluble about once a month (only done twice). After reading the whole forum I suppose I should make a visit to my organic nursery!
Plants are pretty healthy all things considered and the mucho 100+ days we are havin here but thought I would post up some pics for your perusal and opinions. New babies been in the ground for a week and all were in rough condition when purchased (Its late, its hot, and I did it anyway!). Three smaller plants are endless summer's and the larger one came from WM the same day. Got the big one cause it looked susceptable to propogation .
Ready for the experts opinions, critisisms, flames, or just good natured taunts!
BTW, black thumb w/open mind!
The new, planted last week:
Scads of small flies and mosquito lookin things flyin around these new ones but they don't seem to damage them. Showed up immediately upon planting. These new babies have already had thier first Neem oil treatment.
The old, started last year:
Odd how the closest is the same size as when I bought it but thefurther west they get the larger they are!
Strange leaf happenings, I figure its leaf burn from watering?
