The Garden Helpline (252-237-0113), manned by the #MasterGardeners, has been busy with questions about #shrub and #tree death.  When a dead limb sample comes into the Master Gardener office or mentioned during a Helpline call, the first question is what does the tree trunk look like lower down.  For example, here you see #bark split on live oak and asian pear.  This occurs in the spring after several days of warm temperatures followed by a late hard freeze.  Unfortunately, there usually isn't anything you do to to save the tree.  If you have a dead or dying tree or shrub, look at the whole plant and note anything that doesn't look normal to you.  This will aid the Helpline Volunteers in diagnosing your problem.

Interested in building a planter from cinder blocks?
Is it safe?
There is a lot of conflicting information out there. Some sources say cinder blocks are made with fly ash and can leach things such as radium and arsenic.
So what does the research say? 
Master gardeners found the blocks will (over time) leach lime, which alters the soil's pH. The fly ash carries a possibility of some leaching of other compounds, however there is no conclusive research showing that is dangerous.
One option is to line the blocks with a thick (6 mil) plastic. Don't line the bottom, because you want the soil to be able to drain. Or use another material like untreated wood.

Call our office if you have questions about galls in our area! (Link in profile.) #Repost @pcmastergardeners ๐ŸŒฟGalls are abnormal growths in shrubs and trees and can be found on nearly every part of the plant -- leaves, roots, stems, trunks, buds, flowers, seeds, and fruits. Galls can be caused by a variety of organisms including bacteria, fungi, #nematodes and #mites The most common cause of galls is insects. Although these galls may be considered unsightly, they are rarely harmful to the plant and are usually helpful to the insect.
๐ŸŒฑA complex relationship exists between the insects that cause the galls and the plants that bear the galls. The insect will lay eggs in a plant and at the same time release a chemical or other stimulus into the plant. The plant responds with its own release of growth hormone, leading to abnormal growth around the eggs that becomes a gall. Feeding damage and other insect secretions can cause the same result. The gall is made of protein-rich tissue and is strong in structure, providing food and protection for the developing insects. Once a gall begins to form, nothing can stop its growth.
Over 2,000 types of galls are produced by insects and the majority of these are made by wasps or tiny flies.๐ŸŒฑ#galls #wasp #fly #leaf #gall #insect #integratedpestmanagement #education #learning #mastergardeners #tree #trees #arborist #bacteria #fungi #world #plants #frontyardgarden #backyardgarden #problems #growwhatyoueat #organic #shrubs

๐ŸFruit split is a disfiguring condition where one or more splits, often branched, are seen on the surface of apples, pears and other fruit. Poor pear tree!The splits are usually not very deep, but they cause wounds that allow diseases and pests to attack otherwise healthy (and tasty) fruit. Fruit slugs have attacked this pear tree! Say NO to sawfliesโ€ผ๏ธEven if the fruit remains healthy the splits are disfiguring leaving the fruit only good for juicing or cooking.
Fruit split is a condition, not a disease, as it is caused by an irregular supply of water. The splits usually occur when rain follows a protracted dry spell and the sudden availability of moisture causes the fruit to swell too quickly.
The remedy is easier said than done as it is simply to ensure your fruit trees have a steady supply of water. Given varying weather conditions this is not as straightforward as might appear and of course, hosepipe bans can spoil the best laid plans.
๐ŸThe real solution therefore is a longer term one. It begins when you plant fruit trees, when it is important to incorporate plenty of well rotted organic matter in the planting mix. Good compost helps the soil retain moisture and so increases its ability to release water to plant roots in dry spells. Thereafter, you can continue to improve those moisture retaining properties by mulching. Ideally you should use more well rotted manure or garden compost, but failing that fresh grass clippings laid 2ins (5cms) deep will help retain moisture and will eventually rot down and improve the soil. Apply this mulch in the spring, when the soil is wet!๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป

๐ŸFruit split is a disfiguring condition where one or more splits, often branched, are seen on the surface of apples, pears and other fruit. Poor pear tree!The splits are usually not very deep, but they cause wounds that allow diseases and pests to attack otherwise healthy (and tasty) fruit. Fruit slugs have attacked this pear tree! Say NO to sawfliesโ€ผ๏ธEven if the fruit remains healthy the splits are disfiguring leaving the fruit only good for juicing or cooking. Fruit split is a condition, not a disease, as it is caused by an irregular supply of water. The splits usually occur when rain follows a protracted dry spell and the sudden availability of moisture causes the fruit to swell too quickly. The remedy is easier said than done as it is simply to ensure your fruit trees have a steady supply of water. Given varying weather conditions this is not as straightforward as might appear and of course, hosepipe bans can spoil the best laid plans. ๐ŸThe real solution therefore is a longer term one. It begins when you plant fruit trees, when it is important to incorporate plenty of well rotted organic matter in the planting mix. Good compost helps the soil retain moisture and so increases its ability to release water to plant roots in dry spells. Thereafter, you can continue to improve those moisture retaining properties by mulching. Ideally you should use more well rotted manure or garden compost, but failing that fresh grass clippings laid 2ins (5cms) deep will help retain moisture and will eventually rot down and improve the soil. Apply this mulch in the spring, when the soil is wet!๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป #pear  #fruit  #fruittree  #sawfly  #insect  #problems  #orchard  #mulch  #garden  #growwhatyoueat  #organic  #integratedpestmanagement  #mastergardeners  #love  #water  #watermanagement  #slugs  #eathealthy  #education  #summer  #harvest  #scouting  #piercecounty  #wsu  #seattle  #pnw  #puyallup  #tacoma  #edibles  #oneworld

You might see plants called mosquito repellents. Do they work?
There are no foolproof plants that keep mosquitos away from your garden. ๐Ÿ™„
There are many plants that have some repellent activity, but this won't stop mosquitoes from visiting you. Mosquitoes might stay away from those plants, but the repellent area is very small, and would not cover your entire yard. Also, for the plants to repel mosquitoes, they need to release the oil of citronella from the leaves. You can do this by crushing the leaves, rubbing the leaves on the skin, brushing up against the plant or burning them (on the barbeque for example).
These plants include basil, lemongrass, lemon balm, rosemary, garlic, mint, Cadaga Tree (Eucalyptus torelliana) and catnip. There are also several plants called citronella: a variety of geranium "Pelargonium citrosum" and others that go by "mosquito plant.โ€
Commercial repellents work better.

Yesterday I went on a tour of all the seriously amazing community gardens in Marysville. Between them, they have donated literally THOUSANDS of pounds of vegetables to local food pantries. ๐Ÿ… I want to bring this to my library so much!  #whatlibrariansdo #librarylife #communitygardens #foodinsecurity #mastergardeners

Zinnias are an easy annual flower to grow from seed. Think about planting some seeds in early August for fall blooms. Their flowers are a food source for Fall-migrating butterflies.  This heavy bloomer likes full sun. 
Zinnias are a great cut flower. It seems the more you cut, the more they bloom. Their bright, daisy-like flower, blooms on a single stem and is easy to cut. Their flowers are long-lasting in water and can brighten up any space. 
Zinnias readily reseed if you learn to identify the seedling and leave it to grow to maturity. (That means don't accidentally remove it thinking it's a weed!) #zinnias #zinnia  #NorthTexas #Flowers #flowersforpollinators  #bouquet #Denton #dentoning #littleelmtx #aubreytx #lewisvilletx #argyletx #crossroadstx #flowermoundtx #flowersoftexas #mastergardeners #flowersfromseed #flowersfromseeds
