I don't know why I thought these shrubs were rather trouble-free,
but last winter I started to notice that something was de-leafing
my silver queen in the front of my house. I treated it with the
Bayer Tree and Shrub liquid and the bush came back.
Short lived. Now that bush is bare and so is the larger one I
had in the back gardens. *&%^it.
What do I do, bag them after taking them out? I don't want to
spread those vicious little shrub killers.
Then, should I treat the soil somehow? I would like to put
something else there (I wish I could put some other green and white
evergreen). This is my first experience with scale and I'm not
sure how to proceed.
Bad enough I have several other shrubs to replace thanks to Sandy,
though I didn't get flooded like Chris, so I shouldn't complain.
