Hi all,,, got an email from my sister this morning and would love to
hear your thoughts on this. I can't find anywhere that sweet autumn
would cause this, but wondered if any of you had.
""""I trimmed back that sweet autumn clematis that is growing along the
between Cheryl's yard and my yard because it was growing onto my okra
plants. Anyway, that's the first time I have ever trimmed the thing
was growing (as opposed to being dormant in the winter). I laid all
trimmings down on the grass and left it there for about four days.
Harry mowed the back yard on Saturday and mowed the trimmings and
them up. Now you can see that the grass is dead--not just where I laid
trimmings for four days, but in a couple of swaths the width of a
all around that part of the back yard. That whole area of grass around
where the okra bed is located is dead grass. I noticed it on
morning. It looks just like someone took Roundup to it but in a
motion about the width of a lawnmower, but in two side-by-side passes.
The rest of the yard is just fine. Frankly it looks like that vine
some kind of grass killer--like Roundup. It's very weird looking."""""
Anybody else ever seen anything like this?
Thanks for your thoughts
