May Maintenance Guidelines
After years of working in the industry and building a nursery business around Oklahoma's inclement weather, we are suggesting the following maintenance guidelines:

* Plant your Ball & Burlap (B & B) trees.

* Add Marcum's Redbud Compost to revitalize your soil nutrients while planting new plants. 

* Apply  Hi-Yield Grub Free Zone II to control mole crickets. 

* Dollar spot disease can first become visible on lawns in mid-May. Apply ferti-lome Liquid Systemic Fungicide or ferti-lome F-Stop. Make certain fertilizer applications have been adequate before ever applying a fungicide. 

* The second application of pre-emergent, Hi-Yield Ornamental Weed Preventer with Dimension or orzulyn herbicides, can be applied in May to early-June depending upon tiing of first application. Check label for details.

* In mid-May, treat for pine needle diseases with copper fungicide.

Chump's Chatter

Oklahomans love their roses, but there is a huge growing concern with the increase of the Rose Rosette Disease (RRD). What is this disease, and how do you determine whether or not your roses have RRD or new growth? 

Where and when was the Rose Rosette disease first discovered? 

A Rose Rosette disease symptom is sometimes referred to as ____ broom.  


Dahlia's Answers: RRD was first identified in the 1940's in the Rocky Mountains. Its symptom or characteristic of the disease is sometimes referred to as witches' broom. 

Dahlia's Dirt!
The Rose Rosette Disease is a growing concern to our Oklahoma rose gardeners.  Read the OSU Cooperative Extension Fact Sheets (EPP-7329) on the RRD disease cycle, characteristics, and management of the disease. 
"The disease is caused by a plant virus, the rose rosette virus (RRV). This virus cannot be transmitted by sap; it is only transmitted by grafting or eriophyid mites, This mite is microscopic and tends to hide in buds, at the base of shoots, leaf axils or under leaf scars. The mite acquires RRV when it feeds on infected plants. 

The mites crawl short distances on rose plants, but they can be carried further distances by wind currents, blowing to new roses.
Mites can also be carried to new sites on gloves, clothing and tools."
