IN THE GARDEN

posted: 02/18/2017 1:52 a.m. Discuss

Q [Last] summer some of my azaleas showed white specks on black branches. Now it has spread to other bushes, and they don't look too good. One of the small ones lost a lot of leaves, and the mulch underneath it turned black. Summer 2015 I sprayed with a fungus and insect killer, but it didn't help. I try not to use too many pesticides because I don't want to harm the birds that eat insects. Should I remove the bushes?

Q My daugh-ter-in-law, who is a Master Gardener in El Paso, Texas, told me about key gardening. I was wondering if I could adapt the idea in my raised kitchen garden. I have four 5-gallon buckets. I plan to drill holes in a spiral manner top to bottom, place them in the ground 10 inches deep, add new materials for compost, and this summer use the buckets for dispersing the water with nutrients from the compost.
