I do 4 apps on homeowners shrubs-bushes in Tennessee.
Feb.-Dormant Oil -Montys Joy Juice(1 oz. per gal)
March(General insecticide-Montys Joy Juice)
April ( General insecticide-fungus-Montys Joy Juice)
May (General insecticide-fungus-Monys joy Juice)

It works well,especially Montys Joy juice for thick ,full- shrubs bushes.
I want to due all organic. Any advice for the 4 apps without injections?:cool2:

What are the pests at hand, and what kind of shrubs?

Soil conditions. What is the OM? What kind of microbial habitat can the soil sustain?

And what of your client's tollerance for damage?

That's a good place to begin!

Peter it is good to see you here and involved, remember NOFA and you sitting out in the late spring sun lov'n every minute

"What kind of microbial habitat can the soil sustain?" is a question that no one that I know of can answer, especially me
Hey Michael, if it ain't broke don't fix it but I sure would like to see the pesticides taken out of the program you won't need them as the plants head towards a more organic program

If you kill something off other pathogens will take up the space
