Pine fines & surprises
I had to tell someone this surprise I got in my pine fines.
I admit, I bought them on sale last year from a nursery, 50lbs for $4.95. Couldn't pass 'em up!
I made my gritty mix and root pruned and repotted a bunch of my trees.
Last Friday, yesterday and today I've probably root pruned and repotted 48 JMs + some hosta and heuchera.
A little while later, lo and behold, the soil was glinting in the sunlight.
My pine fines had termites.
I was so totally grossed out. But I bagged the pots, put a little Raid in there (very little) and soon had lots of dead termites. Just what I need hear my house, right!?
Anyway, I thought you guys would get this, whereas others just look at me with their eyeballs clanking together when I talk about my trees. :)
