clematis trouble

Posted by Kathy Strain | June 15, 2019

Grape wine disease- continued

Posted by Georgina Fekete | June 15, 2019

You also suggested some copper based fungicide spraying. Where could I get such chemical? Does Osmocote carry it? Or any source of this copper based chemical I can get it? Thank ...


Problem with my asters

Posted by Maria Cecilia Salisbury | June 15, 2019

Thanks for taking my question! I bought two planters with asters, medium tending to small. I came home and put the two of them in a large planter. The first days they were gorgeous.
