belive it or not preparing for fall!
Ever since the 1st Roebi I bought in 2004 ended up infested with mites (and I did not know what they were) over the winter I have added systemic granuals to my potted palms come August. I've never seen a spider mite again. I do it now while the palms are actively growing. If I wait until September it may be too cool for rapid growth. it cools off so fast here in Septmeber (SEP 1 ave high 78, Sep 30 ave high 65) that I have never made it to October without having to move my zone 9-11 palms indoors at least for a few days until a new warm front comes through. So cry as I might I have to realize I may only have 6 weeks left until they need to come in and I want to be ready. Summer is flying by!
