I learned recently that Neem has about a 2yr shelf life. I just don't use
enough of anything to have to throw it out after using only a few
spoonfulls.

David, at my local Nursery, where I teach, they use a product called
Greenlight that is supposed to be a fungicide, miticide, and insecticide
all
in one. Guess what the active ingredient is.......Neem. Buy some Neem.
And
Pam's Kelp mix seems to work too. Although she was quite correct in
using
very little. I burned the crap out of some plants by using too much.

You have a miticide??? What kind is it Kitty? You can adequately get
rid
of them by forcefully spraying them with water. Do it a couple three
days
in a row and that should take care of it. The live on the undersides
of
the
leaves so you have to get the hose at that kind of angle.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I have some
summer
oil, if not, I think I still have some miticide in the cupboard.
I'll
be
glad to get them out of here.

First of all, I would put them in the shower and wash off as many
as
the
buggers as I could. Then, you can spray them with hort oil,
although
I
might
wait to harden them off a bit first. Or put a systemic granular
poison
on
them if they are for sale that soon. I HATE those things! Good
luck.

sorry to change the subject, but plants in the house....
I started dahlias in pots indoors.  Was just about to move them
to
FL
rm
to
transition them and I think they have spider mites. Webs all
over.
Guess
I've been too busy outside to notice. They are supposed to be
for
sale
may22, if I spray them now with ? and get them some air outside
(in
and
out
to harden), do you think they'll be ok by then?

It would probably be too cold in the winter, but the Gardenia
radicans
does
pretty well as a house plant in a bright window. Give it a
shot.
it
will
fill the whole house with the scent and trust me, the real
thing
is
a
thousand times better smelling than any lotion, cream, or
candle
I've
ever
come across.

Gardenia! Yes a wonderful smell! The other day when I got my
facial,
she
used gardenia essential oil in my facial massage. I think I
must
get
one! I wonder how they do in Oklahoma? Fran

#65279;Well the gardenia has buds on it now! It's a small
one
(Radicans)
in
a
pot, but it has at least ten or twelve buds on it! I'm so
excited.
Mother
had
one as a houseplant that she started from a cutting in
Richmond
(where
my
brother
&I were born) and by the time I was a teenager it totally
filled
the
big
double
window in the front of the house. When it was blooming the
whole
downstairs
smelled
like Heaven. I've wanted one ever since. Splurged on one
this
March.
I
watch
those
buds fatten every every day now and it's the first thing I
check
besides
Sugar
when
I get home. This will give my homemade potpourri a whole
new
dimension,
I
can't
wait!!
