Thanks, I appreciate the article. It's similar to others I've seen, it's just hard to determine when the buds are open enough, I'm not familiar with this. I think it's actually the right time now, I think I'll spray it this weekend.
Rip it out? Lol, I don't think I will do that. I probably should've pressed the issue more with the landscaper. I probably still can but they're just not responsive at this point, so I'm stuck with it. It was expensive.
Reading that, I see that I can spray it sometime in March as well, which will stop the flowers as well. I don't care to have the flowers bloom actually, so I'll try that next year if this round doesn't work.
Any help concerning the other large branches? Do those get cut off?
