RE: new flower scapes are there!

I think Alex gets away with no fungicide because his soil is low in organic
matter and he uses no fertilizer. Jim Hawes uses fungicide with his bud
cuttings. I suggest always using fungicide. I use captan, or rootone, and
rootone contains a fungicide. Your potting mix is real high in organic
material and with all of the cut surface exposed on a bud cutting I bet the
bud cutting would be prone to rot. I have seen Jim use Pro-Mix in the
greenhouse over winter with fungicide with good results.

I have seen Alex tear into a one of a kind hosta without mercy and cut it
down to little bits. It takes good nerves. Mine aren't that good. I have a
lot higher organic content in my soil and I'm afraid come spring either rot
or voles would claim my prize possession.

That makes sense.  I have also had significant losses when I start cutting
things this late, but it could be because everything here is in pots, which
is a
little riskier.  Do you have no problems with rot on things that were
this late in the season?  Fungicide?  I can't count the things I've lost by
trying to get greedy late in the year.  I wouldn't mind trying it again but
afraid to do it on anything valuable, and if it's not valuable, why bother?
