Fantastic Fairgrounds PED
Thanks to Kathy Gilmore, Margareta Schmutzler and Judy Niziolek. Glad we started at 8AM, it actually got hot by 10AM.
While trimming the roses Margareta found Rose Rosette Disease (see attached picture) in two of the Knockout roses. We cut back the daffodils and iris, the foliage was hiding other plants. Deadheaded and weeded but it appears the Preen (spread last month) is helping to prevent new weed growth. We added some garden art (see attached pictures). If anyone is interested we have supplies for making bottles.
