Winter Gardening

first_imgThe unusually mild winter has folks itching to get outside. Gardeners want to know if it’s too early or too late to prune, fertilize, plant, aerate lawns or apply pre-emergent herbicides.Remember, the best time to plant new trees and shrubs is in the fall or early winter. If you plant trees or shrubs in the springtime, it’s generally a good idea to start with smaller plants that are quicker to establish and easier to keep watered through the first summer, especially if Georgia has another drought.As far as pruning goes, the ideal time to prune fruit trees, landscape trees and shrubs is in late winter prior to bud break. However, most trees started breaking dormancy very early this winter. It’s perfectly fine to prune plants after bud break – you won’t kill your plants. Just realize that plants that produce flowers or fruit in the springtime are likely to have more buds knocked off during the pruning process the later you wait to prune. For fruit trees, this could be an effective way to thin flowers and reduce the fruit load. For spring-flowering plants, such as camellias and azaleas, pruning is generally recommended after they flower, which could be as late as May or June.Entering springtime, plants will begin to grow very rapidly, which allows them to seal off pruning wounds more quickly. This is a good thing. They also have the ability to produce more sap in the springtime and may appear to be “bleeding” more excessively if pruned later. This sap is just water and will not compromise the plant’s health.Springtime pruning also allows you to remove any frost damage to new growth that came out too early. After a mild winter, this could be an advantage since there is sure to be another frost before spring. It’s still too early to fertilize trees, shrubs and dormant lawns, like bermudagrass. Soil temperatures affect the ability of plants to take up nutrients. Ideally, soil temperatures should be averaging around 65 degrees Fahrenheit for fertilizers to be used efficiently. Apply fertilizer too early and most of the nitrogen will be lost to leaching and runoff from rainfall before the plants can take it up – this wastes time, money and fertilizer. Too much nitrogen now could induce a more rapid break in dormancy and make plants less hardy if there is a late freeze. A great time to fertilize and to add limestone to lawns is immediately after aeration, which allows the nutrients to go down deeper into the root zone. Lawn aeration reinvigorates lawns that are recovering from drought and compacted soil. However, this practice is only recommended for actively growing lawns. For fescue and other cool-season grasses, the ideal time for aeration would be spring (March) or fall (October). For bermudagrass and other warm-season grasses that go dormant, wait until after they fully green up (usually around May) before you core aerate.Pre-emergent herbicides should be applied to lawns before annual weeds start to germinate. For crabgrass and other summer annual weeds, germination starts when soil temperatures reach 55 F.Most winter weeds will start to set flowers and go to seed very soon. Control these weeds now before they set seed or you will have even more weeds next year. Use selective herbicides labeled for your lawn type or those that are safe to use around landscape plants. Read and follow all labeled application rates and safety precautions. If you have spring fever, submit a soil sample to test your lawn or garden. If you haven’t done a soil test in a few years, this is a great time to see how much fertilizer or limestone the soil needs for a successful lawn or garden in the coming year. For more information, see the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension publication “Care of Ornamental Plants in the Landscape” (Bulletin 1065) available at Get accurate temperatures for your area through the University of Georgia’s weather network at read more

The handover of duties took place in the Ministry of Tourism and Sports

first_imgToday, the handover of duties took place between the new Minister Nikola Brnjac and the current Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli, the Ministry of Tourism reports. “Croatian tourism is safe in the hands of the new Minister Nikola Brnjac, and now that it has been further strengthened with the sports segment, I believe that we can represent Croatia even better and more recognizably in the world. In this period of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of the Republic of Croatia, led by President Andrej Plenković, has created the preconditions thanks to which tourism is still achieving significant results, and I have no doubt that it will continue to achieve exceptional results in the years ahead.”, Pointed out the former Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli during the handover, and stressed that there will continue to be support for Croatian tourism through work in the Croatian Parliament. On that occasion Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac She thanked the current Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli for her work and emphasized the importance of tourism and sports for the Croatian economy and the recognition of Croatia in the world: “Tourism is extremely important for Croatia, it has always been the driver of the economy and I am sure it will be in the future. My first goal will be to ensure the stability of the tourism sector during this period. Tourism should be better positioned in the future financial perspective of EU funds in order to remain the flagship of the Croatian economy”.center_img Photo: Ministry of Tourism and Sportslast_img read more

Olopade Predicts Doom for Domestic Football

first_imgBukola Olopade Olopade who noted that NPFL management has breached an article in LMC statute by agreeing to prosecute the 2018/19 NPFL season with 24 teams whereas it was clearly stated in the LMC statute that only 20 clubs should participate in the NPFL league.“The organisers, NPFL must also relegate four teams if they are to accommodate four NPFL in the 2018/19,” he argued.He said further that “NNL equally has the right to reject demotion of eight teams at the end of the season if four NNL teams were promoted to the elite league from the beginning of the season,” he pointed out.He insisted that if the Super 8 is played, the management of the leagues are merely postponing the doomsday in Nigeria football because the problem is not over yet.“NPFL must also relegate four teams because at the end of the season eight clubs will be relegated to the NNL and at that time, NNL also has the right to reject and say they cannot accommodate eight clubs when they promoted four clubs.“So, even if we solve this problem now by playing the Super 8, we are only postponing doomsday in Nigeria league because the problem will still face us at the end of the season.“They said that the rule says four teams should be promoted from the NNL to the NPFL. But they have already breached an article in LMC statute which states that only twenty teams should prosecute the NPFL. Therefore, it is wrong for them not to relegate four clubs but wants four clubs to join them from the NNL to make the number of the clubs 24.”Olopade in the heat of the crisis resigned as the CEO of the NNL citing breach of the agreement between the NFF and NNL.NFF had in Asaba agreed to promote eight NNL clubs to the elite league which has made all the eight clubs released some of their players to recruit better legs in preparation ahead of the 2018/19 NPFL season.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram SUPER 8 PLAYOFFAs the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) continues to maintain its stands over the proposed Super 8 playoff and a scheduled date for the commencement t of the next football season, former Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria National League (NNL), Bukola Olopade, has insisted having the playoff to produce four teams that will join the professional league rank NPFL is not the solution to the current challenges facing domestic football scene.The former commissioner for sports in Ogun State, yesterday warned that the League Management Company (LMC) and Nigeria Professional Football League Club Owners should accept the initial proposal that promotes all the teams to join the 20 existing clubs in the top division to save the impending logjam.last_img read more

PlugIn Electric Car Market Share In Norway Nearly Hits New High

first_imgNovember brings the 2nd highest market share everDespite it being winter, it was another hot month in Norway where all-electric cars sell like hot cakes. The plug-in hybrid, on the other hand, is shrinking pretty badly.In total, some 7,001 new passenger plug-ins were registered last month (up 20.4% year-over-year) at a market share of 56.9% (only 60.1% in September was better).Here are the details, which shows us clearly that the market shifts towards all-electric models:BEVs: 5,087 (up 88.1%, 41.3% market share) + 1,106 ‘used’ + 187 vans (178 new and 9 used) + 3 FCVPHEVs: 1,914 (down 38.4%, 15.5% market share) News from Norway New plug-in passenger car registrations in Norway – November 2018Nissan LEAF is the best selling car of any kind in Norway with 1,209 new registrations in November and 11,584 YTD. As total Nissan volume was 1,267 for the month and 13,454 for the first 11 months of 2018, it seems that Nissan’s presence in Norway is driven almost entirely by EVs.Last month, BMW i3 surprised with high 714 new registrations (5,239 YTD).The all-new Jaguar I-PACE noted 335 (916 YTD), which as in the case of Nissan, stands for most of the brand’s result – 366 and 1,167 YTD.Tesla delivered 455 electric cars in November and Model X is still number 4 for the year.New passenger car registrations in Norway, Top 20 models YTDsource: Opplysningsrådet for Veitrafikken AS (OFV AS) Top 10 Countries in the Global EV Revolution: 2016 Edition Let’s Examine Electric Car Pre-Orders In Norwaycenter_img Kia Niro EV Pricing Announced For Norway Source: Electric Vehicle News Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on December 8, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle Newslast_img read more
