"Hey, Ashley Frasca, hosting Green and growing almost a year. I think I'm two days shy of the one year anniversary of the show. So I'd love for you to call 40487207 50 Whether or not you've been a caller over the last year, Or maybe it would be your first time. Tell me what you learned. Tell me what you would like to hear. A little more of this is a learning process for me. Just his gardening is for all of you. Um I don't know everything. I know a little about a lot of things, and I've learned from one of the best. Walter Reeves, who hosted Lawn and garden show for exactly 26 years here on these very airwaves on 95.5 WSB and you know Atlanta's morning news of a Scots laid that show just celebrated its 30th anniversary of being on the radio here, So I follow in the footsteps of a lot of talented people in awesome hosts that have all been a part of this radio station for so long and Kirk Mellish and Dave Baker and even O'Neill. I've been on the air a very, very long time. And it's just an honor to be able to do this show and to be able to do traffic Monday through Friday and work some of work with some of the best professionals in the business, for sure this place is is a great place to be and shows like this and like the home fix it show with Dave Baker are really where we can ask questions and exchange information and you get away from politics. Do you get away from the stuff that drives you crazy? Monday through Friday work and all of that, but we kind of get into stuff that we want to be doing. We want to do things around the house, whether it's fixing things up, or, you know, remodeling or in the lawn and garden just something that's a little bit more of a hobby. So I really value your calls and your advice and your expertise on different things that are all related to gardening. 404. 87207 50, So the structure of the show the way it's been set up for a year, and I'm not opposed to changing the way things are. But on the first hour of the show of green and growing, we thought it would be best to have like what we call a benchmark, You know, something that stays at the same place? Same time every weekend. So that's where Walter wonders come comes from and still having him be such a big part of the show. And checking in and I know he gets probably more emails and Facebook messages and things than I do with folks still asking a lot of questions about seasonal things or plant identification, or even some of the experts reach out to him, folks in the field and kind of tell him what diseases or pests or rampant at certain times, and how we can all be a little more responsible in managing those, so that's why I bring him in. Every week to kind of share What's timely and what's hot. What we need to be thinking about. So we just had a great conversation here about half an hour ago about invasives, and he's got great advice for combating things like that, like kudzu and English, ivy and bamboo. For years, he has told us all not to plant bamboo, right and the second hour of the show. This benchmark this thing that would be scheduled the same time every Saturday was celebrity Gardner and I love Ah Honjo Neil Williamson for coming up with that idea when we were brainstorming this show just over a year ago. He's like, you know, there's a lot of people Ashley in Georgia. The garden. Whether it's just very passively, you know, part time or people like Vince Dooley and Dan Cathy of Chick fil A. Who are actually avid gardeners, master gardeners and know what they're doing. So it's been fun for me to reach out to different People in the community whether they're super famous, or they just work in the building with me, and we're, you know, TV and radio personalities that you used to hearing that everyone has a take on gardening, and even if not gardening, just they've traveled to different places, parts of the country or the world and things they've seen and observing nature. So that's kind of fun. And then our number three Kind of kept that the same with Walter Reeves Lawn and Garden Show of having pipe nursery on they sponsor the show, and I love them, bringing on different store managers and assistant store managers. They Pick out each one strategically as to what knowledge base that their most experienced in talking about, so they kind of feature a plant for us each and every week. Tell us all about it, not just come by it or it's on sale or something like that. But here's why you want this in your landscape. Here's why it may be attractive and here's how to be successful with it. So I appreciate all of that. If you have any great ideas, I would love to hear them because I I'm able to get back out on the road a little more now. I mean, the coronavirus isn't in check yet by any means, But the stuff I do like I go outside and I interview people and I talked to really fascinating people. So I've been to the Green Meadows preserve over in West Cobb and talk to Jim Beard about bluebirds. And I did. Ah, keep marrying a beautiful day last year in a tree planting and one of the stem schools And Mariana that was fun to kind of get out and talk to the kids and watch them. You know, arborists, actually planting a tree at the school with them and seeing the kids light up and getting interested, And that's what we're talking about Starting seed to. There's all these different avenues of gardening that if you take it back and simplify it on a simple scale for kids to get involved, that's so much fun.

So all of your calls for sure coming up. 7 32 8 o'clock and Jr and Riverdale is absolutely going to be first. I wish I had a prize for him because he's hung on a long time. But for the rest of you three things you could do the landscape this weekend. Very easy. It's a little late in the season, but if you want to spot spray weeds do so when the temperatures are lower than the mid eighties, do it When it's a little cooler, the soil's damp and then you don't know right before or right after the herbicide applications and A lot of these weeds, folks to like manual removal. That's I'm all about that. I posted a picture of spurge on the Facebook page going to start doing weed of the week. Every Tuesday. I'm opposed to picture of a weed. Identify it for you and how to treat it. Spurge is one that grows. Low on long kind of leggy and it usually grows like in the sidewalks and cracks of driveways and things like that, But it's got a taproot, so it's just really easy to yank out rabbit Tobacco. That's another one dandy lines. Just grab that and yank it out for sure. But ah lot of these summer weeds are going to be AH, melting away, hopefully in the next month or two, all right. Second, thanks. Strawberries, blueberries and bramble fruits are forming next year's butts for the crop next year. To keep those watered for better production. Make sure the water is consistent and you could fertilize strawberries now, too. I've got mine in a hanging basket and I'm getting round to a flower. So I'm hoping for a little bit better output than about a month ago and number three. Water plants several hours before applying pesticides, especially during dry weather. Drought stress plants. They have less water in the plant tissue, and then when the chemicals enter the leaves. Are more concentrated, and it could burn the leaves as well. And speaking of pesticides. So we've had a caller Stan who I just love talking about because he had a homemade recipe for a Fed's Now I have not tried this. Nor do I know if it is scientifically proven, But there is something to be said for what it does to a Nathan's body. Just how it breaks it down. So his recipe that many of you asked for for aphids. He used a gallon of water. One tablespoon of baking soda. 2.5 tablespoons of olive oil, and they just half a teaspoon, very, very little of dishwashing detergent. And so that breaks down the aphids body. Put a little spray bottle and away you go, so that could be very handy for a lot of you, Jill and Rachel and Delores. You all asked for it. So if anybody wants to hit me up on the Facebook page, search green and growing WSB in there, we can continue the conversation about that. But in the next half hour, we're gonna talk about moving blueberries. We're going to talk about azaleas. And then the perfect time to dig plugs. Tommy indicator has some lawn advice for all of you.

"SP I'm your host Ashley Frasca happy to be here on the Saturday morning and we hope you just hunker down at home enjoying the show drinking the coffee hanging out with the family and I have two guests on the line that I have been very excited for weeks to get to talk to you about landscaping and protecting you as homeowners as well as some other fun stuff having to do with plants but Mary Kay Woodworth and Erin poles and what inspired me to do this segment years ago I mean it's really something that I've held on to having an interest in gardening was a neighbor a friend of my mother's couple years ago beautiful Bermuda lawn everything looked great she spends a lot of time outside and potted plants and all of this kind of thing and well the landscape company had maintained her her landscape for a little bit of time and I don't know what went wrong I I need to talk with her to get further details but that beautiful green Bermuda lawn it took no time at all I mean it started in dead patches that then literally just whatever chemicals sprayed over the lawn it wasn't long before the entire thing was dead and I just really feel like she was helpless didn't have a lot of recourse so I don't want to ask you both from a legal standpoint but Mary Kay Woodworth will start with you executive director of the urban ag council here in Georgia maybe some things that homeowners need to be wary of or need to do up front with a landscape company a reputable company will make that right and one thing to remember when I mentioned that there aren't no licensing requirements to to be a landscape company if you are spraying chemicals the Georgia department of act does require you to have a lot of Georgia pesticide license and there's a very comprehensive study to this end the test signature you know you're you're using the right chemicals so definitely ask a landscape maintenance company or companies can be spring any chemicals on your property if they have a license that's the very first thing and if they don't cover the one touch your lawn in your landscape I don't think it's too much to ask to go ahead and just have that in writing to protect both of you right right you know it's not just giving your lawn may be reached at but it's also a very big concern with well water safety you know with with the run off into our rivers and streams so people need me now with their eat whether spraying and doing it correctly great point and Aaron Paulson you are with the environmental horticulture department there at Gwinnett tech when you baby working with the future generation of landscapers and horticulturists and things like that so tell me about some of the classes that are offered their Gwinnett tech our faculty and staff are trying to train these future landscapers to try to avoid those those situations and there's a lot of plant knowledge that's required and I like to tell my students that in our classes their hands on so if they're taking care of the landscape in the landscape management class they're gonna be mixing and spraying those chemicals that can be done safely if you know what you're doing in our program we have four certificates the landscape design technician the installation technician our floral design certificate and are sustainable urban agriculture technician certificate and then for those that want additional training we we also have a diploma and a two year associate's degree and overall we have about thirty different classes to prepare someone to be a landscaper and I think a lot of people don't recognize how many different skills there are right here at the school when I say a an opportunity to fail safely in that learning they see what works and what doesn't work and they're not putting their customer or their business at risk and ideas what were doing those things hands on so they can see their failures and learn from them so that when they're out in the industry taking care of people's properties they have that plant knowledge to to do it correctly to know for example what type of grass does the client have I hate to say it but there are landscape companies that don't bother even identifying what type of grass isn't that crazy that seems like thing to do number one I get those mailers and and flyers on my mailbox they talk about all these things they're going to do for my fescue grass in my front yard and I'm tempted to call them to let them know that you know about half of what you suggested would actually kill my centipede grass that I have in my front yard have you ever done that have you ever called one of these places and just help you guys out just a little bit maybe only leave these flyers on the right mailboxes that goes on the lawns right say hi it later pared out by being able to know what grass type it is and I haven't I'll I'll tell you it the longer I do this the less patience I have with that so I think we're getting closer for me to call somebody and just say Hey Jeff let's try to make it a little more professional than this yes okay so Aaron Paulson to some great information there and you can follow Gwinnett technical college find their website it's Gwinnett tech dot EDU and right there is where under programs all of the things that Aaron just listed in the environmental horticulture department just errand really quickly and then we'll move on so what are some other things that you you know other ways that you impart knowledge on the students that you have I mean they're all ages summer college age summer starting over summer probably older hobbyists so what are just some of the basic beginning courses all right so the very first classes horticulture science I know horticulture is a big word that a lot of people don't even know what that is exactly I like to say it's anything related to the plants that are around so when you are in your house and you've got house plants oracle trys works with those you step outside you have your your landscape or your garden you go to the park you have your parks and rec people who are would be horticulturist to the sports field to the trees on the on the side of the road to the plants in your your office park and inside the office building so the work cultures works with the plants that are around them and it it takes a lot of plant knowledge to some of the roaches to that first week we look at the science and horticulture science class and then we look at the different tasks that are in the landscape so we've got the class on landscape design landscape installation and then landscape maintenance and then irrigation and grading and drainage so our instructors all have experience in the industry so they're talking about things that have gone well things that have gone wrong things that they're seeing currently you know for example we like to joke about creek murders you know over pruning of crape myrtle trees and shrubs you know I have to start out with the students and say first of all from the client's perspective it does not need to be present and there are certain reasons for pruning and we're gonna talk about that but even taking a step back from that is the plant knowledge and is do you have the right plant for that space because if you do the plant's gonna perform better and then you're gonna it's gonna be more sustainable there are great models that are two and a half feet tall and their crepe myrtles that are thirty feet tall so I like to use that as an example of how to just simply having that plant knowledge spending time in the class where were outside pruning learning diagnose and hearing about problems that plant knowledge is gonna is going to make you much more successful when taking care of your clients yes and just being able to talk to them and answer their questions you know basic questions if they explain to you is a landscaper they want something pruned you ask will may I ask why you know are we trying to do you know get a flower we trying to get it to fit better in the space and then kind of having that back and forth and Mary Kay Woodworth also of the urban ag council earlier in the show Mary Kay you you all advocate you educate you promote what the well being of the green industry as a whole and all of the things that Aaron just mentioned with with plant knowledge you've got a lot as well and one thing I've been curious of Tallulah learn a little more about sustainable landscapes what can you tell us about that they are protesting the sustainable landscape is one where you're installing it you're you're making making a profit on it media we laughed about that but what was most important today when I think every person out there doing landscape if they want to make sure they're creating landscapes that require fewer chemicals your water inputs that are just going to be desirable to whatever you want you know some people want a beautiful backyard with the pool and plants and things like that other people wanted of very nice retreat very green very lush very soothing which I think in today's environment with what's going on that's what that's what I would think people would be looking for something calming yeah it took to just make them feel good and feel safe and making the space work for you and also just making it efficient like you said with water needs and you know sunshine need space needs all of those kinds of things so what are some of the favorite plants that you have okay oh my gosh I'm I'm one of those plant people I use a combination of natives hands and non native I think there's room for for both in the landscape Erin I'm sure you you were the same way that you've never met a plant you doesn't like and you can never have too many I'm fortunate that my I have a wonderful landscape company is a member of the urban ag council to understand completely what I want and I have been quite a yard full of beautiful specimen plants plants that have to force Houston appeal so anytime of the year there's something going on in my garden and I understand I'm not going to prove that because it's supposed to be flowering you know if you're in the fall America wouldn't be happy again minor wouldn't be happy if it if it wasn't performing well but what I was going to also say for for your listeners who are not sure what they want or they want to see here are four examples of landscape we actually have a whole section of our website called Croce and we also have an award winning landscape projects that I will our members have submitted for awards and we have the going back to twenty ten where you can view the photos of these award winning projects urban ag council dot com and also focus right now like the Facebook page as well Aaron this may be casting a little wide of the net Aaron but I was going to ask you before we have to go to break here any trends in Georgia landscapes be it good or bad maybe let's start with bad things that folks need to stay away from either their over planted or just more prone to disease so most of the problems are gonna I say are more of over planting a landscape with some of the the plants I don't wanna give Leland cypress a bad name but they do have some disease issues but most of those issues is because when being installed we're not recognizing how big they can actually get and you see people planting them right next to their front door and this is the plant that's gonna get twenty feet wide and forty and sixty feet tall and in very short time and it's it's very popular as a screening plant and anybody who wants to screen part of their property has no patience for the plant to grow and so it's chosen because it grows quickly just about when you're happy that it screened and looking full size that's when the disease issues said in because they're planted too closely and and having that plant knowledge and knowing the options and knowing what that plan needs can solve a lot of those long term issues perfect so the label of the plant is a good place to start when you pick that up from your local nursery it kind of gives you an idea and do a little bit further research of necessary when we come back I'm going to ask a favor of the two of you Mary Kay Woodworth and Aaron Paulson I do a garden to do lists just three basic things for folks to get out and do their landscapes this weekend or this coming week you can ask for.

"With Ashley Frasca here's your garden to do list this week one of the things about the show that was very important to me was just getting back to garden basics I admit I get a little overwhelmed in the yard sometimes and you just seem to get overwhelmed or intimidated by the things you don't know so that's what we try to do every Saturday on the show's kind of help keep you in line to make sure you're just doing a little bit of the time and you're learning as you go so first of all want to examine the backside of a lot of your shrubs that could be you wanna miss rob's Camelia most of those are done blooming but this is the time scale insects are going to be born the little babies are going to hatch and you don't want scale wax scale and T. scale or a couple of common once you don't areas like Florida they have purple scale brown skill or little guys are generally when their babies are like orange but then when they get a little more mature they're white that is very easy to often see on the stands of the underside of the leaves what you want to do is get ahead of it and start spraying with horticultural oil is the pests are already present or you just see the beginnings of them on the plants because what they're gonna do they suck the sap out of the leaves and that leads to the plant dying you know a few years ago I had a sky pencil Holly on either side of my front door and just eats long skinny stem one by one started turning brown and I didn't get ahead of the scale that's exactly what killed it so or cultural oil is going to be the best of the kind of breaks down that waxy coating that the insects have and then they release something the black like city mold is what we call it and so then you see the black on the backside of the leaves too so anyways yeah do that and also speaking of Camelia you could also be removing spent camellia blooms that have fallen on to the ground going to remove those from around the bush that prevents Camelia petal blight so maybe get out there with a five gallon bucket and do that secondly last chance to prune rose bushes to approximately one half of their present size you know with my knockouts I usually go back to where they're just twelve inches high I mean they look so ugly but there ready they've already got you know dark dark red new growth and even some leaves on them they're ready to go I posted a video on Facebook a few weeks ago my poor husband had to film just such a menial task of improving the knock out roses but I think it'll kind of help guide you at least not going in there all **** nilly with the printers but really having some structure to how you do that and lastly this is kind of a tricky one repot houseplants that you want to move out doors there are a lot like the bright light not direct sun light but bright light so routes will need more room in the pot is they want to grow a little more rapidly in the sun so the plan that you're taking outside now look at the end of March boy by time you bring it back in and maybe in September October it's it's going to be a lot bigger maybe ZZ plant Croton is what I love that is so common down in Florida Mancera those could get huge in Swiss cheese plant those get really tall so you may want to think about staking those or have something to help those stand up but let's talk about re potting in the reporting the house plans before you move them outdoors you want them to be in their best ideal conditions right so generally step one only move up to one inch larger pot so if you've got a six inch pot look for like a seven inch pot don't go to big break up the roots if they've become root bound or if they started to get roots growing outside the drainage holes you know you want to be aware of that and then use a good potting soil clean pots and clean potting soil out of the bag rather than garden soil just because the drainage is going to be a little bit better for really and also don't planted too deeply so you want to build that up with some soil then put the plant in there than bill keep building up around the sides and maybe have the the top of the the root ball like about a maybe half an inch below the top rim of the pot.
