One per pot. Water frequently and make sure your soil pH isn't messed up. You can buy test strips at any garden store.

2018-04-27 19:51:31 UTC

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

2018-04-27 19:51:46 UTC

It should be 5.5 to 7 unless your trees call for something else.

2018-04-27 19:52:02 UTC

Ah ok

2018-04-27 19:55:11 UTC

Could it be damping off disease?

2018-04-27 19:55:33 UTC

Sterilize your equipment and get fresh potting soil if so.

2018-04-27 19:58:17 UTC

@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

2018-04-27 19:59:51 UTC

Boo, sorry! I can never win between leggy seedlings and damping off.

2018-04-28 03:03:21 UTC

Neutral soil- too much fertilizer will fry the little things.(hopefully you don't use chemicals but...)

2018-04-28 03:03:49 UTC

Also move the lamps away from your seedlings you could be burning them

2018-04-28 03:04:07 UTC

Use the hand test- not too hot or too cold

2018-04-28 03:05:51 UTC

It could be a few things but it's usually the little easy things that get you...

2018-04-28 03:52:29 UTC

Oh yeah!!! Don't over water and almost more importantly make sure you have a fan circulating air around the seedling and the soil

2018-04-28 03:54:33 UTC

This will aerate the soil keeping anaerobic bacteria at bay as well as help create a stronger stem

2018-04-28 03:55:21 UTC

(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.

2018-05-11 00:23:59 UTC

Has it been at a Home Depot or a garden center of some sort?

2018-05-11 00:26:00 UTC

I didn't even realize this garden server was here! Awesome

2018-05-11 00:27:52 UTC

I was told to try Ortho Fungicide. But it was purchased at a local nursery.

2018-05-11 01:50:47 UTC

Don't use fungicides!!!

2018-05-11 01:51:33 UTC

Fungus plays a very important part in the soil food web and messing with it is just asking for problems

2018-05-11 04:00:53 UTC

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.

2018-05-11 04:02:46 UTC

Japanese maples are supposed to be a hardy tree. 🙄 I’m now nervous about planting the rest of our shrubs and flowers. Ughh lol

2018-05-11 10:02:28 UTC

It's honestly probably just heat

2018-05-11 10:03:55 UTC

It doesn't look like anything fungal to me, nor does it look like a nutrient deficiency

2018-05-11 10:05:51 UTC

It doesn't look like anything is eating it either

2018-05-11 10:07:47 UTC

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

2018-05-11 10:20:18 UTC

@MaryJuneVoss - SC#2855 do you use chemical fertilizers? The more I look at it it looks burned(like a chemical kind of burn)

2018-05-11 10:23:06 UTC

@MaryJuneVoss - SC That top picture is sunburn. No question.

2018-05-28 17:53:10 UTC

@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

2018-05-28 18:04:55 UTC

Reeeee don't poison your soil with that garbage

2018-05-28 18:05:41 UTC

It’s done wonders for my Pine and fir trees

2018-05-28 18:05:56 UTC

How often do you have to feed it?

2018-05-28 18:06:25 UTC

It literally kills everything in your soil so you have to keep using their chemicals

2018-05-28 18:06:47 UTC

It may as well be named "miracle soil sterilizer"

2018-05-28 18:06:56 UTC

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

2018-05-28 18:07:17 UTC

I didn’t know that but I haven’t had any problems, maybe that’s how I have had problems growing seedlings then

2018-05-28 18:07:25 UTC

Like less than an inch tall

2018-05-28 18:07:56 UTC

Yeah man it messes with the soil food web big time

2018-05-28 18:08:10 UTC

If I didn’t use it on all those trees I planted they would have died like the ones my dad planted haha

2018-05-28 18:08:21 UTC

I suppose your right

2018-05-28 18:08:45 UTC

Oh

2018-05-28 18:09:05 UTC

But the soil was clay anyway, so it isn’t idealistic to grow in

2018-05-28 18:10:08 UTC

Most soil has clay in it. If you feel the need to feed the soil something just make some compost tea or something

2018-05-28 18:10:18 UTC

Feed the soil not the plants...

2018-05-28 18:11:21 UTC

Seriously though all these plants did fine for years without us

2018-05-28 18:11:43 UTC

Yea, I’m impatient

2018-05-28 18:11:43 UTC

The more you put your hand in it to "fix" things the more it's going to mess up

2018-05-28 18:12:02 UTC

That's oftentimes the problem haha

I HIGHLY recommend reading this book

2018-05-28 18:23:58 UTC

You have to understand that your soil is alive and that there is an entire food chain maintaining the balance

2018-05-28 18:25:12 UTC

(Or there's supposed to be if we'd stop messing with it by constantly trying to "correct" problems we think exist)

I'm jealous of the land tbh

2018-07-17 02:29:15 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 13:35:41 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 13:37:40 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 13:39:51 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 13:42:06 UTC

This week it’s Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is a tall (up to 15-20 ft), herbaceous, biennial plant.

2018-07-24 13:43:03 UTC

Giant hogweed is native to central and southwest Asia. It was intentionally introduced via the nursery industry where it eventually escaped and spread.

2018-07-24 13:43:18 UTC

Impacts
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.

2018-07-24 13:43:44 UTC

2018-07-24 13:44:33 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 13:45:17 UTC

Identification:
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.

2018-07-24 13:45:59 UTC

Flowers: 50-150 white, small, many borne in large, loose umbels at tops of stems. Blooms late June through August.

2018-07-24 13:46:54 UTC

Stems: often purple-mottled, up to 4-in in diameter, hollow and ridged.

2018-07-24 13:50:09 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 13:52:30 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 17:44:29 UTC

@horticult Is there any place on-line to track Hogweed's spread?

2018-07-24 17:47:59 UTC

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.

2018-07-24 17:49:37 UTC

City or state parks services are the best resource to find out if a new invasive species has been spotted in your area.

2018-07-24 17:50:38 UTC

Unfortunately most invasive occur on residential land, and oftentimes the landowner is not informed of the potential ecological threat.

2018-07-24 19:23:10 UTC

2019-01-27 15:33:01 UTC

it will turn your soil into a subsistence known as "Black Earth"

2019-01-27 15:33:22 UTC

which is soil that is super high in carbon

2019-01-27 18:00:24 UTC

Loamy goodness.

2019-01-27 19:37:31 UTC

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

2019-01-27 19:38:29 UTC

also add some manure to boost the Nitrogen levels as well

2019-01-27 19:39:43 UTC

if you do those three thing you can grow anything with Ultra High yields as a result

2019-01-27 19:48:57 UTC

Once my GF fixes the disaster that is my garden I'll post some pictures.

2019-01-27 19:49:11 UTC

2019-01-27 19:55:51 UTC

2019-01-27 20:14:16 UTC

@V.Balboa - PA nice! Compost Nationalism!

2019-02-15 02:25:58 UTC

@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

2019-02-15 02:27:10 UTC

@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

2019-02-15 02:49:18 UTC

Thanks I can't wait for Spring to break out my roto-tiler 😃

2019-02-15 02:49:23 UTC

2019-02-25 08:14:50 UTC

@NITRODUBS jade plant?

2019-02-25 10:01:15 UTC

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

2019-02-25 10:01:26 UTC

I’m gonna try and have a farmers market stand this summer and sell some of these
