October 10, 2015 - Debbie Cook, Master Gardener and Certified Arborist, talked to her listeners this week about the fall season.
Did you plant a fall garden this year? Debbie talks about the current weather and extending your garden season. Have you ever wondered what makes the leaves change color and why they fall? Listen in to hear about the scientific process and how each color is formed.
Are you seeing white flies and aphids around your garden and want to learn how to prevent them from coming back next year? Debbie describes what actions can be taken to help with future prevention.
Do you have gophers tearing up your yard? One caller had some advice on getting rid of gophers using corn cobs and castor oil. In case you have voles, Debbie gives her recipe for vole control again this week for those who have missed it previously.
If you have fungal diseases on any of your stone fruit trees, now is the time to treat them. Once the leaves are off the tree, you should spray with a copper-based spray. Pay close attention as Debbie explains the clean-up procedure.
