As the summer winds down, after a long and laborious growing season, many people's thoughts go toward rest and the mending of body, mind, and machine. And why not? This is a difficult business we are all in and many of us work longer and harder in 6 months than many people do in 12.
Bothered by scale insects on outdoor trees and shrubs? Hit them with a 1-2 punch to increase control. Fulcrum, an insect growth regulator (IGR) plus your favorite horticultural oil.
Hummert is proud to announce that Triathlon BA biofungicide is now listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for organic use.
At Wiethop Greenhouses growing beautiful plants is more than a hobby, it is a way of life. Owner Mike Wiethop and his family have been in the greenhouse industry for 40 plus years supplying both the retail and wholesale sides of the industry.
