One per pot. Water frequently and make sure your soil pH isn't messed up. You can buy test strips at any garden store.
It has to be very acidic I’m assuming. I have one per a pot. I don’t let them dry out so I don’t think it’s an underwatering issue.
I’ve done this for a couple of years but only managed to get a handful out of hundreds.
I’m thinking maybe I should use a different soil type even though they recommend vermiculite and peatmoss
It should be 5.5 to 7 unless your trees call for something else.
Could it be damping off disease?
Sterilize your equipment and get fresh potting soil if so.
@therealmissesgreen-MD yes that is it, and cinnamon kills the disease. However, even with fresh potting soil and clean containers it seems to happen. The stems choke off near the roots
Boo, sorry! I can never win between leggy seedlings and damping off.
Neutral soil- too much fertilizer will fry the little things.(hopefully you don't use chemicals but...)
Also move the lamps away from your seedlings you could be burning them
Use the hand test- not too hot or too cold
It could be a few things but it's usually the little easy things that get you...
Oh yeah!!! Don't over water and almost more importantly make sure you have a fan circulating air around the seedling and the soil
This will aerate the soil keeping anaerobic bacteria at bay as well as help create a stronger stem
(Don't create a hurricane around the poor bugger but you get the point)
I bought a Japanese maple and it looks like it’s dying. I’m not sure how to treat it if I’m even able to save the tree.
My wife says it may be too much sun, just leave it there and it will adapt.
Has it been at a Home Depot or a garden center of some sort?
I didn't even realize this garden server was here! Awesome
I was told to try Ortho Fungicide. But it was purchased at a local nursery.
Don't use fungicides!!!
Fungus plays a very important part in the soil food web and messing with it is just asking for problems
It’s consumed my tree so fast, I’m afraid whatever this is will take over the entire tree in the next week or two.
Japanese maples are supposed to be a hardy tree. 🙄 I’m now nervous about planting the rest of our shrubs and flowers. Ughh lol
It's honestly probably just heat
It doesn't look like anything fungal to me, nor does it look like a nutrient deficiency
It doesn't look like anything is eating it either
What does the rest of the plant look like? If it's even all over like that I'd have to agree with Alfred up there- probably too much sun
@MaryJuneVoss - SC#2855 do you use chemical fertilizers? The more I look at it it looks burned(like a chemical kind of burn)
@MaryJuneVoss - SC give it some miracle grow and it will perk right up. The problem is the roots have not adjusted yet and are not naturalizing into the soil. Looks like not enough water as well
Reeeee don't poison your soil with that garbage
It’s done wonders for my Pine and fir trees
How often do you have to feed it?
It literally kills everything in your soil so you have to keep using their chemicals
It may as well be named "miracle soil sterilizer"
Well to get them established, I would water them with it every other week for 2 years. It’s at my parents and they were able to become established and they do fine on their own now
I didn’t know that but I haven’t had any problems, maybe that’s how I have had problems growing seedlings then
Like less than an inch tall
Yeah man it messes with the soil food web big time
If I didn’t use it on all those trees I planted they would have died like the ones my dad planted haha
I suppose your right
But the soil was clay anyway, so it isn’t idealistic to grow in
Most soil has clay in it. If you feel the need to feed the soil something just make some compost tea or something
Feed the soil not the plants...
Seriously though all these plants did fine for years without us
Yea, I’m impatient
The more you put your hand in it to "fix" things the more it's going to mess up
That's oftentimes the problem haha
I HIGHLY recommend reading this book
You have to understand that your soil is alive and that there is an entire food chain maintaining the balance
(Or there's supposed to be if we'd stop messing with it by constantly trying to "correct" problems we think exist)
This is an awesome method
My father and I hand plant 10k plus onions by hand
Using an Amish plough
It’s a small plot as well
Planted this myself, that Boulder has been in my grandmother’s yard for 4 decades
I thought it was pretty aesthetic
It's extremely aesthetic, bruh
I like the cat.
We used to put spuds in a stack of rocks in the woods and let them grow
Potatoes are hardy
The cat actually shortly after this photo was taken gave birth to bob tailed kittens
@Francis Vvery cool,liking all of it! That's a neat tidbit about the boulder too,neat picture,nice looking
Carolina reapers about to start popping
Jalapeños already way ahead
Herbs somehow held out through the drought
Leeks have had a heck of a time with the grasshoppers this year
Aaaand tomatoes fending off the hornworms
Our overgrown in weeded family garden. It may not look the best but they produce for sure.
I'm jealous of the land tbh
That’s my moms. Not to much now a days just what we need. More of a hobby/family farm. Although she sells at the farmers market as a hobby. And actually we’ve found it easier to sell what we don’t need then to try and give it away.
Oh and she has 50 acres.
Not sure if you're familiar with these folks but very interesting stuff.
I love that page! Very inspiring. Very similar to what we have going on here too. I love that they are a part of a volkish/ agrarian movement in Germany! I want to see more of this in the US as well!
Invasive plants are a serious problem for native plant species in the United States. They outcompete native plants due to a lack of predators. They disrupt soil microbiology and ph, and affect the sensitive balance of the overall ecosystem.
It’s also worth mentioning the fact that the fight to stop the spread of invasive plants directly parallels our own fight to preserve our culture as identitarians.
I’m going to try and post at least one invasive plant a week, highlighting its environmental disruptions, how to spot it, and how to get rid of it efficiently.
This week it’s Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is a tall (up to 15-20 ft), herbaceous, biennial plant.
Giant hogweed is native to central and southwest Asia. It was intentionally introduced via the nursery industry where it eventually escaped and spread.
Giant hogweed suppresses the growth of native plants, which has a negative impact on native wildlife. In addition, giant hogweed poses a threat to human health as direct skin contact with the plant’s toxic sap induces extreme photosensitivity causing slow to heal burns and scarring. this sap can also cause blindness upon contact with the eyes. Costs are incurred for both medical treatment and efforts to keep the plant under control. Over 100,000 seeds per plant are dispersed annually by water, wind, or humans.
Giant hogweed burns
Habitat: Giant hogweed invades disturbed areas across both the Northeast and Pacific Northwestern United States. Although often found in open fields and along roadsides, it has been observed along streams in natural areas.
Leaves: palmately compound, with three deeply incised leaflets, with spotted leaf stalk, enormous, lower leaves can be 5’ wide. Only basal leaves are produced the first year.
Flowers: 50-150 white, small, many borne in large, loose umbels at tops of stems. Blooms late June through August.
Stems: often purple-mottled, up to 4-in in diameter, hollow and ridged.
Physical/Mechanical Control: Hogweed is difficult to control due to its toxic effects on the skin. A small number of plants can be hand dug, but care should be taken to remove most of the root and to protect skin and eyes.
Repeated mowing does not kill the plant and causes resprouting, but it may weaken the plant if done consistently and persistently enough to starve the roots. Chemical Control: Foliar treatments with glyphosate (trade name “roundup”) or triclopyr ( trade name “garlon”) have been effective. Glyphosate is considered the most effective herbicide and should be used in spring and early summer when plants are less than three feet tall. A follow-up application in midsummer may be necessary. Use caution around desirable species since glyphosate is non-selective.
If anyone has questions concerning invasive plants, native plants, identification of plants feel free to ask any time, I do this for a living and I want to help make everyone more aware of this beautiful green earth, and our responsibility as it’s stewards.
@horticult Is there any place on-line to track Hogweed's spread?
Unfortunately there is no one specific place to track the spread of invasive plants, this website puts out alerts on all invasive species and they update when it’s spotted in new areas. https://www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov/index.shtml.
City or state parks services are the best resource to find out if a new invasive species has been spotted in your area.
Unfortunately most invasive occur on residential land, and oftentimes the landowner is not informed of the potential ecological threat.
Snake head fish have been a huge problem too..also from Asia
Silver carp too.
It's like Kudzu, those Asians are killing us. Yikes.
The State bird of South Dakota is the Chinese ring necked pheasant and killing it is a major tourist attraction for us here.
I have a great book on viticulture if your interested in it
Anyone have methods to get tomatoes to be less acidic? Mine are coming in overly acidic and tart. The problem is in all 4 varieties I planted so I don’t think it’s just the variety.
Dam I wish I would have saw your post earlier @Prestor John Add more Garden Lime to your soil
No problem just Remember to save All your leaves this Fall
Nice but How are you growing them in the Winter ?
This is my Garden area don't forget to rake and bag all the leaves that you can for spring
because when the weather breaks I till them into the soil and pile the rest into a large pile to decompose into Leave compost which is The Best Compost you can have
the results speak for themselves
it will turn your soil into a subsistence known as "Black Earth"
which is soil that is super high in carbon
yes @Der Seeteufel - SD leaf compost is the Best but it does rise your acid levels in your soil so the advice i would give is to add some garden Lime when tilling the garden
also add some manure to boost the Nitrogen levels as well
if you do those three thing you can grow anything with Ultra High yields as a result
Once my GF fixes the disaster that is my garden I'll post some pictures.
I got to put and replace some Grapevine this spring
No table grapes
Concord and Niagara
I been fight a Bad infestation of "Black Riot"
so they got to go
I'm starting to get more interested in viticulture ever since going to Australia. My GFs family used to run a vineyard.
I just eat them never had an interest in turning them into wine
All three of these wines come from the Barossa Valley in South Australia. 19 crimes can be bought here.
I think it's bottled in California but my GFs family still works in the vineyards that grow the grapes.
Wow is she Australian ?
heres a pic of my garden in the spring
Here a pic of a zucchini that I grew in my soil that I tilled the leaf compost in
Here's some of the wine grapes from the vineyard my GFs brother works at.
OOOO very nice
This is her mother's garden.
Wow and that's in Australia
Yes I was just there for Christmas.
It hit around 104F when I was there.
They just recently got 110
Now thats my kind of weather 😃
I love the Heat
to bad it doesn't rain much in Australia
Yeah it's very dry. It was nice when I was there though. Worst part was coming home to 2ft of snow in my driveway.
I don't have a snow blower either. This had to all be shoveled.
I like that Garage
My neighbor came over and helped though. Got to love SD.
@Prestor John there are specific named tomato varieties that are sweeter/more tart depending on your preference. Some pretty great heirloom varieties from Johnny's, Baker Creek & Seed Savers Exchange just to name a few
@NITRODUBS Have you looked into microgreens? Thats definitely something that can be done well indoors, under grow lights. Sunflower, radish and kale microgreens are my fave
Thanks I can't wait for Spring to break out my roto-tiler 😃
Yup I’ve looked into those I’m gonna grow em soon!
Plant some Heather for the bees.
...also known as Erika
Disregard previous msg. confused u for someone else.
Just growing a variety of succulents. A good tip, when you have a dying succulent you can lay it’s leaves out like this in a high light area, spray water on it every 3-4 days and you’ll eventually get a new plant
I’m gonna try and have a farmers market stand this summer and sell some of these
