Re: Definitely fall

My magnolia lost all its leaves this summer but does have new buds. The extension agent came over to look into my "skunk" problem and said at first that he thought the mag was dead, but did find some green under some of the bark. He suggested treating the roots with root stimulator (I use Green Light brand) to help de-stress what is still alive and trim off that which is dead.

BTW, he thought the skunk smell was possibly soured mulch. He also thought it might be coming from the Phuopsis but I'm not ready to rip it out as I don't quite buy that. I'm going to try spreading some lime on the mulch first to se if that counteracts it.

Don't give up on your dogwood too fast. The one I've had here for years (I didn't plant it) looks like death by the end of every summer, but it comes back and blooms even every spring.

What a beautiful day here! It's raining! This is the first rain we have had
since late July, and it has been hideously dry.  The past few days have
been hideously hot, as well - this is October? Today is in the 60s. The net's prediction is for a sunny day, but so far it is still raining - looks as if we have had nearly an inch. It had become so bad I didn't even like to
go down to the garden .  There was nothing I could do, and everything was
dying from the drought. I'm sure I have lost a large double-file viburnum and
at least one, maybe more, dogwood.  Their leaves have just turned brown
and fallen off.  Anyway, I am so thankful for the rain.

Today is the first day since mid-June I am wearing long pants. It has been exceptionally hot here- it isn't supposed to be in the 90's with high humidity in IL zone 5 in October! But that was monday's weather here... yesterday it was in the high 70's- today it is supposed to be in the 50's... we will see. Cool this morning, but we will see what develops. ************************************** See what's new at http://www.aol.com
