Zucchini, Plant ID and Tips for Growing Berries

Zucchini, Plant ID and Tips for Growing Berries

by Ellen Zachos and C.L. Fornari | Plantrama with Ellen Zachos and C.L. Fornari

In this episode Ellen and C.L. begin by discussing summer squash, aka zucchini. We mention the use of Actinovate, Serenade, and Green Cure organic fungicides for controlling powdery mildew, and C.L. mentions the variety Zephyr for continued production even after the plant has mildew.  Next, we discuss the ways to get an accurate identification of a plant, whether you’re using an app, posting on Facebook or a list-serv, or taking a photo into your local garden center. In our “Eat, Drink, Grow” segment we talk about growing blueberries and blackberries, and our “Insider Information” section discusses an article from the Summer 2017 issue of Garden Design. We finish off the program by answering an email about keeping daylilies looking their best through the summer.
