    Several years ago, coniferous trees on our site began to die: the needles turn yellow and fly off, the tree dries up. Spraying with copper-containing preparations did not help (I found advice on the Internet). What to do?

    Explain, please, what could have happened to the tree? They planted it the year before last, chose the place and soil according to the recommendations and even laid the drainage on the bottom, and last autumn the tree got wet. How to avoid mistakes in the future?

      - For conifers, it is important to initially form a good root system. On heavy soil, when planting too deep (even if there is drainage), the roots cannot breathe, since there is no oxygen there. But precipitation and melt water are definitely collected - and everything will get wet. The tree, never moving into growth, dies.
      The width of the planting pit for a coma with a diameter of 0,5-0,8 m should be 1,5-2 m (about three times wider), because the roots of the spruce develop mainly to the sides, and not down.
      Also, when planting, it is important not to deepen the root collar, otherwise it will rot. It happens that the neck of purchased seedlings is covered with earth due to a dense obgya! rhizomes with burlap. Therefore, it is important to remove this material and carefully examine the roots and stem.
      An illiterate covering of the earth to level the planting site or the formation of a roller for irrigation also has a bad effect on the survival of conifers.

    My husband and I are still inexperienced florists and gardeners, so we ask for advice in choosing a sprayer. Is it possible to cope with the processing of tall conifers on your own?

    • OOO "Sad"

      - Last season, we also faced the problem of choosing a sprayer for treating garden plants from pests.
      However, having looked at the many different models that the market offers, we realized that none of them are suitable for our needs: a large processing area and work with tall trees.
      And then the spouse came up with the idea to try his Karcher car wash as a sprayer. We liked the result: due to fine spraying, fog is formed — plants are processed more efficiently in hard-to-reach places, even trees and shrubs, the height of which reaches 6 m (reaches the very top of larch and spruce).
      To do the job, the types of car washes are excellent, which have the function of taking liquid from any container. And even if there is no such option, you can adapt: ​​put the canister a meter above ground level to ensure that water is supplied by gravity to the entrance to the sink.

      With a garden of 20 acres, the sink coped with it in 20 minutes - with my many years of experience this is the first time.

    In November, I advise you to spray the plants with "Elin" on the needles and water at the root.
    In late autumn, it is advisable to clear conifers of old, diseased needles and dried branches, and also lighten
    and thin out the crowns. The fallen needles must be collected. Then treat the plants with "Fundazol", "Falcon" or "Strobi". And after a few weeks, spray with Bordeaux liquid or Abiga-Peak.

    There are no signs of disease on my conifers. But a neighbor says that in order to prepare for winter, the plants must be sprayed with insecticide and fungicide ...

    • OOO "Sad"

      - Your neighbor is right, because prevention is better than cure. In addition, some diseases are latent, that is, there are no external manifestations yet, and the plant is already seriously damaged. The most effective insecticides are Aktara, VDG (8 g / 10 l of water), Inta-Vir, TAB (1 tablet / 10 l of water), Imidor, VRK (1-5 ml / 10 l water), "Biotlin", VRK (3-5 ml / 10 l of water), "Fufanon-Nova", VE (13 ml / 10 l of water) or "Pinocid", EC (2 ml / 10 l of water).
      Reliable fungicides: Fitosporin-M, Zh (6 ml / 10 l of water), Albit, TPS (3 ml / 10 l of water). By the way, "Albit" is an immunizing drug that not only protects against fungal and bacterial diseases, but also prepares plants well for winter.

    In hot, dry weather, spider mites quickly multiply on conifers. The pest is clearly visible in the morning dew. A thin cobweb covers young shoots of pine, spruce, fir, yew or juniper, and tiny ticks move along it. They suck out all the juices from the needles, which is why it turns yellow and falls off. The pest hibernates under the bark scales and at the base of the plant trunk.

    To get rid of the spider mite, I process my conifers at least 2 times with an interval of 2-3 weeks with one of the systemic insecticides: Aktara, Confidor, Tanrek, Fufanon, Imi-dor (by instructions).

    New branches of young spruce damaged sawfly. How to deal with this pest?

    • OOO "Sad"

      - Evenly, until the needles are completely wetted, treat the fir trees on the crown with one of the preparations: Alatar, CE (5 ml / 10 L of water), Pinocid, CE (2 ml / 10 L of water), Kinmix, CE ( 4 ml / 10 l of water), Fufanon-Nova, VE (13 ml / 10 l of water), Iskra, SP (10 g / 10 l of water), Aliot, CE (10 ml / 10 l of water ) You can also use the biological product "Lepidocide", P (20-30 g / 10 l of water). After 10-14 days, repeat spraying with the other of the proposed remedies.

    The immunity that we need so much in winter can strengthen the needles.
    To prepare a product that gives us new strength, fill the glass liter jar to the shoulders with spruce or pine needles, fill it with good vodka or, even better, alcohol. Insist 21 days, strain and take 3 times a day for 30 minutes before meals, 10 drops (you need to drip them on a piece of sugar). This medicine also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
    But the common cold, which often visits us in the cold season, can be stopped with the help of such a drink: mix equal amounts of orange and apple juices. Drink up to 6 times a day. Or take 4 cloves of garlic, chop, pour a glass of hot milk, infuse for 20 minutes, and then drink in small sips for half an hour.

    With cough, bronchitis, pneumonia, tonsillitis, chills, a nut tincture will help. It is necessary to rinse with boiling water 3 lemons with a peel, cut and peel the seeds. Pass this citrus, as well as a glass of walnut kernels, 3 large leaves of aloe (about 300 g) through a meat grinder, add 0,5 kg of butter, 200 ml of cahors and 0,5 kg of honey. Store the mixture in the refrigerator. Take for adults 1 tbsp. l., children under 3 years old - 1 tsp. 3 times a day half an hour before meals.
