Are you talking about Instant Messenger? Live chat?

If you are referring to IM (instant messenger), I use it all the time. As a matter of fact, I'm carrying on a conversation right now with a friend.

Sorry to be confusing.

It's the plant hormone that's supposed to work wonders.

I have some figs that could use a jolt -- and wondered.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'll keep trying.

And Happy Holidays to all of you.

Yes -- and my sincere thanks.

I've been hearing claims about it, and, finally, decided to try it.

I've started my biblical garden -- figs and pomegranates. This is the start of the second year with them. They're reasonably happy where they're planted -- but once you've started eating your own figs, you can't get enough.

So, I want to spur them along.

Be well

Hi,
I tried to get Messenger at my local Home Depot and they don't carry it. I wonder if Bayer 3in1 would work the same way? Does anyone know?

hi leslie, long time no talk. jamie over in the rose forum told me about the 3 in 1 and i bought some but i will have to read the label tomorrow. it's like a systemic thing, i don't think you can eat the fruit from it. i will check and post tomorrow. the stuff flyboy was talking about, i found that site, but didn't read it. jamie swears by the bayers.

Hi Sand,

How are you? Did you see the thread about a Central Fla. roundup maybe in the late Spring at my house?

The Bayers is fantastic for non-edibles. My roses, gardenias, etc. have responded beautifully to it. I also used it in the hose end sprayer when I had a bad infestation of aphids on my daylilies and it worked like a charm. It has fungicide, insecticide and food all in one. You're right, it's systemic.

I'm very intrigued by the messenger and want to give it a try. Thanks for the link.

Happy New Year everyone,

Leslie

I guess I'll take a deep breath -- and try it.

Thanks

That certainly sounds positive vis-a-vis roses, anyhow,

I'm still committed to trying it. I'll share some with you if you're interested.

Be well.

People --- Don't use anything systemic on food crops unless the label says you can! Messenger can be sprayed anytime as it is harmless to the plant.

Thanks. I hear you.

~I know we've all been talking about a couple of Florida fields trips and Roundups in the various assorted threads and forums. When you're ready to have the one at your house, please start a separate thread, with the Central Florida Roundup as the title, and I'll try to send everyone to one set thread for info. We have also talked about a field trip to Lukas nursery, EPCOT Flower and Garden show, and Leu Gardens (starting maybe late January)
~Bayer has worked well so far, for me...I have not tried the other. Had a terrible spider mite and thrip problem this past summer for some reason, and it seemed to help.
