a powder systemic that you water in.. of course I got the bugger with an alcohol wipe first

not a cheap option.. but the jar will last forever.. only a fraction of a teaspoon goes into a gallon of water

I think the systemics are best. I use one, too. It's a dry one that you add to soil. Supposed to be active for 2 months.

Yes, I hate winter. It was 37° when I went to work this morning. But at least we're not supposed to get that snow this weekend. How about you Jo Ann?
