We’ll probably top these off in another 18 months so they’ll start to go bushy wide then start to trim to shape them.

Meant to post this a couple of weeks ago (which explains the green green grass) but my skip laurels have grown really well.

5 gallons of drench ready for the shrubs, trees, and crape myrtles

It was the only tree in my park that I forgot to treat (including three other crape Myrtles). Nothing was attacked except that one.

I always go with the drench for the trees. I’ll use the granular for the shrubs along the front of my house (wax leaf privets)

On the 10-10-10, I typically fling it at the tree and around the ground in general. I let mother nature do the rest with rain.

Thank you!

On average there are about 10 to 18 ft. Don't require any pruning but it always helps to give them an occasional trim just to keep fresh new growth on them.

I must have about 25 or 30 of them total. Very easy to grow. Really don't require any maintenance. They produce a nice white flowering in the early spring and then berries later in the year.

Need to pick up some 10-10-10 to give them all a light dose middle of next month, but spring is well advanced here so might be by the end of the month.
