Organic Control of Some Orchard Insect Pests – By Xander Rose

A second fruit fly monitoring season in my work in the orchards at Raintree has come to a close. Certain flies can be significant pests of orchard fruit, but they can also be monitored and controlled to minimize damage to fruit. As someone who went to graduate school to study insects (among other ecological, forestry, and agricultural topics), the scientist in me is super happy to be studying these and other insects at Raintree. The most wanted flies for us, in terms of significance in being a threat to fruit production, are apple maggots and Suzuki fruit flies.

Key to any success in controlling a pest is understanding its biology and natural history. Apple maggots (Rhagoletis pomonella) and Suzuki fruit flies (also known as spotted wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii) are non-native to the Pacific Northwest. In the case of the apple maggot, some flies evolved to switch hosts from native hawthorn in northeastern North America to apples introduced by Europeans. This is a fascinating story of sympatric speciation, occurring in the last 200 years, that I would recommend the curious reader look into further.

Apple maggots are such important pests that the state of Washington has a quarantine law to protect the valuable apple orchards of eastern Washington from them. The apple maggot has figured out how to hide its larvae (maggots) away from predators in a large, protective food source. Flies emerge in the late spring as the ground warms from overwintering puparia (protective coverings of the middle life stage), mate, and then females lay their eggs into apples. Large, red apples seem to especially attract them on warm afternoons. The larvae develop in apples, which, being larger than hawthorn fruits, offer better protection from parasitoid predators like wasps. Adult apple maggot emergence is staggered through the summer and fall, meaning that flies emerge throughout the apple ripening season. The maggots mature in the fruit and then crawl out from ruined and rotting fruit that has fallen to the ground, going underground to pupate overwinter. This life cycle provides clues as to how to control apple maggot. It’s not by targeting the feeding larvae hiding in your apples! Perhaps the emerging adults could somehow be distracted or trapped? What of the ground fruit that may contain maggots about to crawl underground?

Pruning Decisions – Raintree Nursery – Mail Order Nursery

I worked on an aesthetic and constitutional improvement to a nice, healthy, and appealing English walnut in the backyard at Raintree Nursery. The tree is pretty productive of nuts as well. Thus, in any case, figured I ought to accomplish something simple and clear to improve this incredible tree! I took out one branch, and it had a significant effect! 

Here’s the before photo:

At that point, what I did… To start with, I made a wedge cut so the branch wouldn’t detach the trunk, causing harm that couldn’t recuperate. 

A decent cut that can mend is made at the branch collar. At that point, having judged the branch excessively heavy, I cut it back most of the way from an external perspective before at last cutting from above. It would have been more secure to have cut the branch back considerably farther (a careful hop cut: https://www.thespruce.com/pruning-heavy-branches-and-jump-cutting-3269555). Luckily, the cut was a clean success.

Ha! Presently the tree has an additionally engaging structure. All the more essentially, the soggy trunk will dry out, and grass control under the tree’s limbs will be simpler. 
I think that it’s a fabulous walnut. I trust this cut was not very extremist for the tree. Pardon me, tree, my learning! Hot dry climate permitted it in my mind. Trees can mend when the cut is perfect, and conditions are dry. 

Live long lordly walnut! I needed uniquely to inflict that calculated blow. Thank you for reading! There will be a lot all the more pruning websites to come…

Happy growing! Because, after all, change is the only constant. – Xander Rose

Promoting Native Pollinators – Raintree Nursery

Appreciating Native Pollinators

A honey bee visits comfrey, a great blossoming plant for pollinators in the orchard. 
Pollinating bugs are significant for pollinating blossoms so they become an organic product. Many fruiting plants should be pollinated, which means requiring more than one assortment of a tree (the various assortments are designated “pollenizers” in this context – how about we talk about those another time…). Fruit set additionally requires some sort of pollinator in most cases. By far most of the pollinators are insects.

The most famous pollinator, the bumblebee, hails initially from Eurasia. She’s an outsider! Bumblebees came to North America with Europeans. It might be said, I would contend that bumblebees can be analogized to cattle. They have swarmed housing. They behave much the same way as one another, preferring certain blossoms and having low hereditary diversity. They’re similar to the cows of the bug world! Bumblebees can be good pollinators of many organic product trees and berry shrubberies, but did you realize that a significant part of the hard work in many situations is probably really done by native pollinators? 

Blueberries and different individuals from the Ericaceae family have urn-formed blossoms that bumblebees neglect to fertilize well. The plants need honey bees to utilize uncommon buzz fertilization on their blossoms for maximal organic fruit set. I love seeing honey bees visiting blueberry and huckleberry flowers when I’m working in the plantations or nurseries at Raintree Nursery. Here are some extraordinary assets on local honey bees:

https://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/pollinators/pollinator-of-the-month/bumblebees.shtml

https://xerces.org/bumblebees/about

Here’s a photograph of a honey bee flying to a blueberry: 

Unlike bumblebees, which nest in tree cavities (as non-domesticated or wild honey bees) or in man-made hives, honey bees home underground. Sometimes they nest in disused rodent gaps, for example. Bumblebee colonies have honey stores and an a save of laborers to endure the winter. Bumblebee bee colonies survive the winter as a lone queen conveying sperm and eggs. Those queens develop in late-winter prepared to forage and begin their season once again by creating little girl/sister workers. This story so far is uncovering in a few different ways: Firstly, honey bees need patches of native habitat, rougher, messier spots around the nursery where their shallow nests will be undisturbed by low-cutting lawnmowers, compacting feet or wheels, toxic splashes, not to mention the without a doubt obliteration created by tilling, gravelling, clearing, etc. Also, they need late-winter blossoms with nectar and pollen to boost their budding colonies. The queens need habitat conducive for foraging and nesting. I have seen queens appearing to be confused regarding the area of their nest subsequent to going on some crucial early foraging foray. Clearly, my weed wacker destroyed the area of their nest. My response to this issue is to have a light and characteristic hand with the brush control- – cutting, weed wacking, or scything (talk about being near the Earth!) t somewhat haphazardly and not completely each time. This may make for a messier look, yet those unpleasant spots harbor wildflowers and honey bee nests.

There are numerous other lesser realized native pollinating bugs. Flies and scarabs fertilize the unusual paw tree’s blossoms (a topic for a future post). Solitary honey bees and wasps can be various and useful where permitted through a diversity of habitat. Mason bees assemble mud and pollen for packing their eggs into little holes. I appreciate watching them fly forward and backwards with these gleanings as they come home to the nest box my girlfriend and I built for them. It’s very simple and pleasant to give living space to mason bees. Raintree offers material to do exactly that! 

The universe of pollinating insects is assorted and I urge you to learn more through observation in your own yard and plantation, just as through reading.

Organic product Tree Disease Classification

This blog has been principally about pruning natural product trees. In spite of the fact that pruning is significant, it is just a single little piece of ensuring your trees stay solid and profitable. In 2016 we will keep on examining pruning tips and methods, yet we will likewise incorporate data about regular natural product tree infections that may influence your trees and the most ideal approaches to control them. Before we examine subtleties, I might want to remain back and see organic product tree illness from a superior view.

Illness is characterized as any condition that influences the typical elements of a living creature. From creepy crawlies and organisms to ill-advised pruning strategies, natural product tree maladies can be named follows:

Bugs – Examples incorporate aphids, mites*, thrips, and caterpillars. Creepy crawlies can be constrained by natural bug sprays, traps, and useful savage bugs like ladybugs, ribbon wings, and supplicating mantis.

Creatures – Animals incorporate deer, raccoons, fowls, and squirrels. Most creatures are constrained by wall, traps, and nets. There are a few splashes available that help prevent creatures, yet they are normally transitory arrangements and less successful over the long haul. A few splashes contain cayenne pepper to assault a creature’s taste buds. Different showers contain blood or predator pee to trigger a creature’s dread reaction.

Growths – Fungi incorporate buildup, rusts, mucks and forms. These are treated with fungicides and copper.

Microorganisms Bacterial maladies incorporate curses that cause withering, burning, and ulcers.

Infection – Virus are minuscule life forms that live inside living plant tissues and interfere with a plant’s DNA. Not at all like most plant infections can’t be dealt with and some infections can make your whole tree kick the bucket which will warrant total expulsion.

Mechanical – Mechanical maladies incorporate nails, rope, garden cutters, and string clippers. These are simply best forestalled with sound judgment.

Natural – Environmental sicknesses incorporate day off, flood, wind, and so forth and are extremely hard to control since they are “demonstrations of God” and not effectively envisioned.

Social – Cultural illnesses normally happen in light of the fact that you, the steward of the nursery, accomplished something that adversely impacts the tree. Social ailments incorporate, planting your tree excessively profound, over watering or over preparing, and ill-advised position of your tree in the nursery. Social sicknesses are best evaded with the correct instruction.

Specialists have gone through hundreds of years examining sicknesses that taint the human body and still experience difficulty making the correct determination. Most infections can’t be recognized without expensive tests. The equivalent goes with distinguishing and diagnosing maladies that contaminate natural product trees. Specialists and horticulturists the same are generally just ready to endorse treatment dependent on the indications of an illness. For instance, what is making the leaves of your tree shrink and pass on? It could be contagious, social, or bacterial. For some, sicknesses realizing the specific reason is almost unimaginable. For the normal home planter it is just critical to comprehend fundamental ailment grouping and the most ideal approach to treat each class. On the off chance that you can differentiate between bug harm and parasitic harm, for instance, the hardest piece of improving your tree’s condition is finished. It would do a tree with fine mold nothing but bad to be splashed with a bug spray. On the off chance that you can distinguish the fine substance on a leaf as a parasite, at that point you can treat your tree with a fungicide so your tree can re-visitation of full wellbeing and stay profitable.

Grafting Paw Paws | Mail Order Nursery – Raintree Nursery

It’s a paw climate! The warmth has arrived in the Pacific Northwest on this pre-fall day. Paw organic products need heat like this to age. 

A lot of pawpaw fruitlets appeared to pine for more sweltering days back toward the beginning of July. 

The elongated, green paw organic products are developing at Raintree. I was simply keeping an eye on them… As orchard manager, quite a bit of my work at Raintree happens in our plantations. I additionally have the chance to work in our nurseries, gaining from our horticulturist. 

One of the tasks I’ve assisted within the nurseries is grafting pawpaws. I am a decent novice grafter, having just started to learn since beginning at Raintree once again eighteen months back. This post will depict my learning procedure and offer some of what I know; however, obviously, I’m no master yet! I’ll concentrate on my paw joining experience here, but I would like to continue to learn more about grafting in general.

The thought behind grafting is basically to combine two plant stocks. Scionwood from a chose assortment (chosen for all kinds of reasons, but commonly its fruit) is put onto a chose rootstock. A rootstock may be chosen for its vigor, disease resistance, adaptation to a certain environment, or different reasons. 

Vegetative buds on the scion wood should be recognized from flower (aka fruit) buds in pawpaws because their buds develop deterministically in that manner. A vegetative bud will grow into a leaf or a stem, whereas a flower bud can only become a flower and then a fruit. Paw paw (the main species being Asimina triloba) are tropical-seeming plants in part because they bear fruit directly on the stem. To humor the botanist in me or the reader, I’ll throw out the term cauliflory. Indeed, paw paws are tropical. They’re the northernmost member of the custard apple or soursop family (Annonaceae) and the only one that has escaped the tropics. Pawpaws’ champion fruit ranks as the largest edible fruit in temperate North America. The broad-leaved, shrubby, clonally spreading paw ranges in the East all the way up to Ontario, Canada. Although the fruit’s perishable nature has precluded its appearance in grocery bins, local economies exist around paw patches. Pawpaws have made something of a cultural impression, if only regional: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SidjBL6tQF4> (the song “Paw Paw Patch” by Pete Seeger, Mika Seeger, and Rev. Larry Eisenberg from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings on YouTube)

Paw blossoms show up before the leaves in the spring and are borne directly on the stems. 

Anyway, I could go on about paw natural history for a while, but let’s circle back to that some other time. For now, onward with the grafting…

We use whip-and-tongue grafting to fuse together paw rootstock and scion wood grown in our orchards. I match girths (or calipers) of rootstock and scion as the first key step in the process. The rootstock and scion should be as close to the same thickness as possible. Then, I cut upward at a steep angle on the rootstock. I make sure to have the flat side of the grafting knife towards the base of the rootstock and the beveled side away, ensuring a clean surface for fusing to the scion wood. Then, I do the reverse to the scion stick, cutting downward at a steep angle away from the top. Again, the flat side of the knife makes a clean cut on the side of the scion to join with the rootstock. Cutting inward into both scion and rootstock allows cross-hatching them for strength. The pieces slide into each other. The main point is to have the cambium layer (actively growing tissue that generates xylem and phloem) of both lines up as much as possible. For this to work, the cambia have to fuse together. Tape, band, parafilm, or the like gets wrapped around the join (the graft union) to help hold the two pieces together and prevent drying out. A dab of wood glue to the top of the freshly cut scion wood (cut back so that only one or two vegetative buds are left above the graft union) helps ward off desiccation as well. 

Grafting is both art and science, I think. I’m eager to keep practicing to improve my art. I have worked some with whip-and-tongue on other species. I’d like to learn other styles of grafting, too. It’s amazing that two (or more!) individual plants can be joined together with such simple technology, as people have done since Roman times!

Happy growing! Because, after all, change is the only constant.

What to do if your leaves are Yellowing

On the off chance that they are faded it in all likelihood implies an iron insufficiency. Most home improvement stores sell iron that is anything but difficult to utilize and apply. On the off chance that they are yellowing in streaks (see photograph above) it in all likelihood demonstrates a manganese insufficiency. Plants can get insufficient in manganese if the dirt is excessively antacid, subsequently repressing take-up by the plant. You can purchase manganese sulfate (online just) or on the off chance that you utilize an acidifying compost (search for one for azaleas or rhododendrons) they regularly contain manganese.

This sort of yellowing can likewise mean introduction to a neighbor’s herbicide use. I get this a great deal in suburbia. Wind conveys herbicide float and can harm the highest points of a considerable lot of my plants. Likewise, salt from the winter streets and any nearby neighbors that let their manures really splash into your nursery cause comparative issues.

Shockingly, yellow streaking – particularly with ring examples or speck developments can likewise mean infections. In the event that a plant looks extremely infected, tear it out (roots and all!) But on the off chance that the greater part of your fix is affected, you may need to take them full scale. Some infections like tomato ringspot (additionally called tobacco ringspot) are brought about by minuscule nematodes and will be in your dirt for a considerable length of time. cap additionally implies you can’t plant tomatoes, peppers, or eggplant where the berries once developed.

Berry plants that get infections for the most part produce brittle, net berries and you will need to expel them.

In the event that you have light yellow leaves all finished (not green in the veins) at that point you may have a nitrogen lack. That is sufficiently simple to fix with any manure (berries react well to angle emulsions.) Be certain to include a nitrogen rich compost on the off chance that you have a ton of natural material holding back to disintegrate (leaves and mulches) since they take nitrogen starting from the earliest stage they separate.
