(00:00):
Good morning, everybody. Welcome.I'm Ron Wilson and you are in the
garden. You're on news radio six' ten WTVN eight two to one wtv
IN eight hundred and sixty ten WTVNtalking about yardening on this Father's Day weekend.
And not only are we talking aboutyardning, but we are also broadcasting
live today. Where are we Well, we're at Oakland Nursery, Oakland Park
Avenue where at you know what theydo here? This is really and you

(00:23):
know we've been doing this for along time, in the middle of June,
coming out and helping them celebrate theircustomer appreciation thank you sale where everything's
on sale, but they always bringin extra plants. But you know why
they do. I just figured itout, Paul Reiner told me this morning.
You know, it's Father's Day weekend, right and Mother's Day weekend.
You know Mom's you do everything formom, and Mom gets all the gifts

(00:45):
and all the annuals in the basketsand all the great things for the garden,
and Dad's on Father's Day weekend.It's Father's Day weekend. And so
Paul said, they started bringing allof this stuff in on Father's Day weekend
to a shade dead. So thedad feels exactly the same when they come
to Oakland Nursery as mom does onMother's Day. And it makes sense as

(01:07):
a matter of fact, if youwalked in here right now and you close
your eyes and you walked in andyou open up and you look around,
and you think it was Mother's Day, but it's not. It's Father's Day
weekend. And they are absolutely packedwith fresh annuals, tropical plants, and
of course all their usual trees andshrubs and evergreens and perennials and seed them
and all of that and everything here, everything here is twenty to sixty six

(01:30):
percent off. So no matter whatyou buy, it's gonna be on sale.
Doesn't matter what it is, it'sgonna be on it's either twenty percent
sixty six percent or more if they'rereally trying to get through some stuff,
all right, So it's a greatsale. Stop out. We're gonna be
here till noon. We're at theone on Oakland Park Avenue. Paul Reiner
will join us here at the bottomof the hour for the Paul Reiner Show,

(01:53):
and we'll see what he has tosay. And otherwise that you and
me talking yarding after we kick itoff with the Buggets you Boggs report,
that would be Joe Boggs. It'sjust a professor commercial order. Get you
for the honest universal extension that whereI relevent homology post a boy for Are
you laughing? I am, Ican't help it. Why do you laugh?
And I'm not even done yet.I know, I know, it's

(02:14):
just because the introduction keeps getting longerand more creative. Wow. Co creator
Martha Coffee Emporium website is b yg L dot O SU dot edu.
Ladies and gentlemen, mister common Sensicohimself and mister Father's Day mister Buggy Joe
Boggs, Good morning, sir,Good morning. I really appreciated that that

(02:35):
epiphany about you know, the plantsbeing brought in and and readily available for
Father's Day. That's that's pretty interesting, is that they've been doing this for
a long time and finally I realizedwhat that what this One of the stories
behind all this is to make dadsfeel as appreciable as moms on Mother's Day,
you know. And also I mean, okay, getting out there and

(02:58):
planting, I mean I know thatthat sounds like, Okay, it's father's
day, go to work. Butat the end of the day, you
know when we put something in theground that it has a lasting impact,
doesn't it. It's just not one. And I'll tell you that is this
season in my opinion. Now,you, I'm sure have better figures than
I do. Mine is just basedon observation. But it sure looks like

(03:23):
gardening is in full swing. Andyou know, we've watched this for a
number of years, being one ofthe number one activities around their home,
right you know, the improvement islandscaping and so on. I've watched my
own neighborhood a lot of effort putinto just you know, making things look
better, you know, and enhancingthe landscape. Well, you have to

(03:46):
admit COVID has done a lot forthe horticulture, for the green industry in
general, because it did force alot of us to be home where we
would have been out, you know, on weekends and doing things and whatever,
and even not working during the weekand working from home. And the
next thing, you know, thatis part of your living space or you

(04:06):
know where you are every day,and it's like, maybe I should plan
a few more trees maybe I shouldscreen that off, Maybe I should plan
some annuals. Hey, let's growour own vegetables. And it was a
great shot in the arm. Andthe great thing is it got folks introduced
into it more than usual and they'resticking with it. And that's the big

(04:27):
thing. That is the big thing. You know, you're right, as
bad as it all was, Imean, historically, you know, we're
going to look back on this,not just us, I mean, you
know, in history, but asa big societal change. And of course
you know that's being looked at acrossthe board. But you're exactly right,
Ron, we saw this, youknow, when people were at home,

(04:50):
you know, the number of requestsfor landscape to landscape management companies. They
were overwhelmed by the request for youknow, beautification and so forth. And
you're also right that it is incrediblehow it's sticking. You know, it
didn't it's not just a one shotdeal. But of course you and I

(05:12):
grew up, you know with gardeningand landscaping. I mean that's just what
That's what fathers and mothers did,you know, in my but we kind
of got away from it, youknow, so it is interesting, you
know, you know, what wasmade an impact when you and I first
started doing this together years ago.I'm glad you got kind of glossed over

(05:36):
that a years ago. They youknow, when people would call in on
the show to ask questions, oneof the things that was very common they
would say my grandfather always, yeah, or my grandmother always, and it
wasn't so much my dad, butyou did get a few dads every now
and then, but it was alwaysmy grandfather, my grandmother, and you

(05:57):
could see that all of a suddendisappear and then it wasn't so much mom
and dad or grandma and grandpa.That just wasn't being passed along generation to
generation. And I know you see, I mean it's changed from your you
know, our generation to our kids'generations. It's all been the same way.
So it's a good thing that Ijust think that, you know that
just people are more into it nomatter what age you're at at this stage,

(06:19):
whether it's indoor house plants, youknow, the parents their plant parents
now and you name all your indoorplants like your pets and your kids.
I think it's outstanding. It is, And I'll tell you this is the
perfect weekend, yeah, to talkabout this, not just because of Father's
Day, but of course next weekis has been declared a pollinator week,

(06:42):
right, Yeah, so you knowthis is the perfect time to think about,
you know, as we're selecting thoseplants, you know, what kind
of plants that we want to putout there that provide multiple benefits. And
you know, I've talked about thismany times. We've actually talked about this
in the show before, and weteach about this that you know, pollinators

(07:04):
are important, but they also providemany pollinators also provide more services beyond being
pollinators. And oh, I'm lookingat my watch and I think it's you
know, this would be a wonderfultime for a break, keeping your edge
of their seat. You always saythat because you need to think about what
else you're going to talk about.So, oh, I've got to take

(07:26):
a break so I can think aboutBut you know what, I have a
quote because I have my yard boyspoints to ponder and I always print that
out and give it to folks andnets things to think about when you're on
your yard and garden. And onething on there is you know, it's
about be pollinator, pollinator friendly,pollinator polite, you know that type of
thing and if and I took akind of a stole little thing from you
when you did that talk about butterflygardening isn't just for butterflies anymore. And

(07:50):
one of your things there was thatmore flowers means more beneficial insects exactly exactly
and happier plans. And I kindof took that away from you. And
that's that's in that yard. Boys, and I put a little asterisk next
to it so you get credit forit. Oh no, I don't need
to be. I just wanted tomake sure because I need you're thinking right
now, there you go, stealingsomething from you again. Yeah, that's

(08:15):
not among friends, right, Imean, this is just we're all just
sharing. That's extension. By theway, it's going to get hot outside.
I guess you're headed to the basement, right, I'm heading to the
roots teller. That's right. That'sold time, isn't it. Broadcasting live
today, we'll take a quick break. We're in Oakland Nursery, Oakland Park
Avenue. We'll get back to BuggyJoe Bogs after the break. Here on

(08:37):
news radio six to ten wtvn OH, we are broadcasting speaking of O's from
Oakland nursery on Oakland Park Avenue.We're going to be here till noon.
Stop out and say hello. Andit looks absolutely gorgeous, as it always
does. They're having their big sale. It's the Oakland's Thank You Sale,
twenty to sixty six percent off everything. I'm talking anything and everything here is

(09:01):
on sale. Got to check itout. And it's a beautiful day,
low humidity. Like they said,it's absolutely gorgeous. No reason for you
to not get out to one ofthe Oakland stores, but at least come
to this one and say hello.Love to talk to you. Time for
part two of the Bugget Joe BoggsyportJoe Boggs obviously issue extension website b y
g L dot O s U dotE d U. Did you come up

(09:22):
out of the basement? I did? I just I just came up briefly,
you know, just so that Icould so well, so I han't
sell service. You know, that'sthat's the only problem down there, you
know, So people understand. Joeand I were talking earlier this week and
we say, he said something,We're talking about the heat, and what'd
you say, I have to godown to the basement, or I said,

(09:45):
yeah, we're going to retreat tothe basement. Retreat to the basement.
That was pre air conditioning. Itwas, and it's hard to imagine
that you and I grew up withair conditioning. I mean, it's an
air condition been around for quite sometime. But you know, in terms
of everyone having air conditioners, right, I mean, it was window air
conditioners and all that. It was. It was just coming on when we

(10:09):
were very young, right you know, Oh yeah, yeah, my grandparents
never had air conditioning in their homein West Virginia. And of course when
it got really hot, yes,okay, basements, root cellars, these
were places people could retreat to fornatural So it is interesting that and you

(10:35):
bring up a point there. Youknow, I'm not to go too far
afield, but you know, whenwe talk about these heat islands that we
see in urban centers, uh,it's it is true that we can do
a lot of things. You know, we can put up shade and you
know, but you know, plantingtrees once again, you know, these
micro forces that are starting to popup in urban centers have been shown to,

(11:00):
you know, to really mitigate ina very significant way the heat island
effect. And it's free I meanyou stop and think of, Okay,
you have to pay for the treesand do all that, but at the
end of the day, just plantinga few trees. As you and I
grew up, of course in areaswhere there were a lot of trees,

(11:20):
it was always amazing, you knowwhen you go past a group of trees,
how the temperature would drop right ohyeah, and then setting under in
the shade, even when it's veryvery hot, it's a it's a well
just again kind of natural air conditioningand they're transpiring giving off a little bit
of moisture. Yeah. Yeah,So you get that's where they came up

(11:41):
with those mysters. You know,they use Arizona and all that all the
time. Oh, you're back toyou know, Father's Day, misters and
missus b I went off base there, way out there. So before we
before we come to the end,though, I tell you though, there
are a couple of problems we needto we need to talk about, you
know again, you and I,you know, we share what we're seeing.

(12:05):
And Magnolia scale has really been beenheavy this year. Uh it's it's
kind of a follow up because we'retalking about a soft scale. It can
be mashed right now, though theMagnolia scale is going to look like they're
gonna they're really going to look alot like other insects because they're covering themselves

(12:28):
in a white, floculent material.And and what what was it you said
earlier that they sure look like whatsomebody referred to them as you know,
had these melli bugs on my scale. And by the way, yeah,
email wise, I'm the same wayright now. The dominant email is magnolia
scale. Yeah, and they dolook like Melli bugs right now. And

(12:48):
that's that's an old test. It'smelli bugs were at top tests when when
I started with extension. I can'tbelieve over thirty two years ago that Melli
bug were very common. People hada lot of use taxes, and of
course they got used to taxes.Meai bug right indoor plants big time.

(13:11):
I don't know what's happened with Mellibugs, but quite honestly, they're very
rare now. I don't have verymany pictures of them. But that misidentification,
though, can lead people astray becauseif he did have Meai bugs,
well, you know, everything frominsecticidal soap to standard insecticides can take them

(13:31):
out. But these female magnolia skillsagain, they're covered in this white material.
It's waxy. They're very hard tokill right now, you know,
using an insecticide. But the firststep though is proper identification. Now,
the best time to target them withan insecticide is either later in the season

(13:56):
or earlier in the season, andthat would be a systemic insecticide, one
that you know, you'd pour aroundthe base of the plant that's taken up.
But there is a much more effectivein terms of this time of year
method, and that is simply totake a brush, not not a wire
brush, a scrub brush like abathroom cleaning brush, and just simply brush

(14:22):
them off the plant. You knowwhat. No, I'm saying, well,
you know, and I always,I always I follow it up by
saying, if you do that andyou rub those because they will come off
fairly easily. I mean they reallydid. Yeah. A dish soap sponge
with that rougher side on the onthe backside, Yeah, another one you
can curl right around that branch andjust you know, a couple of swipes

(14:43):
and you got rid of them.I always say, you know what,
I come back when I'm all donewith that and I hose it off really
well. It's that's a good pointbecause it is I mean, let's go
back. We call Magnolia's scale anda lot of other scales that are somewhat
related soft scales. That's because theycover themselves in this soft helmet like covering,

(15:03):
as opposed to something like oyster shellscale that we call you know,
hard scales because they cover it,or armored scales because that covering is very
hard and you know, much lesslikely to be able to be scraped off.
But these saft scales. This lastI often cite a paper that was

(15:26):
published I should have the date yearsago when the research was only the University
of Kentucky campus and it was partof involving students in research, and it
was published in the American Entomologists.That's a magazine produced by the Entomological Society
of America ESA. And what theresearchers did was they involved students. The

(15:50):
students went out and what they weretargeting was another saft scale called Calico scale,
which of course we also have incentral Ohio on a lot of different
plants, but in that case theywere primarily infesting honeylocus and you can see
pictures, They have pictures in thepublication and in some cases, you know,

(16:10):
they had the scrub brush, youknow, taped onto you know,
a pole so they could reach higher. And you know, ron that was
done, I don't even I wantto say it was done like in twenty
fifteen or maybe earlier. Those treeshave yet many of those trees have yet
to become reinfested, but it's justkind of yeah, it's very effective,

(16:36):
you know. And the reason forconsidering, you know, a non insecticidal
approach is that mignolia scale is anative scale, and so that means that
means that there are a bunch ofnative enemies. I call them the three
p's, predators, parasitoids, andpathogens. And by not using an insecticide,

(16:56):
you preserve two of those things,predators and parasitoids that can have a
tremendous impact. In fact, theydo all the time. They can eliminate
as I've described in my own homelandscaping with magnolia scale that was totally wiped
out by a lady beetle, anative lady beetles. So the point being

(17:18):
is by scrubbing them off, youknow you're going to not kill the beneficial
insects that could be there. Well, you might scrub some of those off
too, but at the end ofthe day, it's very effective, it's
very cheap, and it lasts quitea while. And I do like your
idea because it gets pretty messy.Yeah, so just you know, hosing

(17:38):
the tree down can make it lookbetter. And also it kind of completes
the job, doesn't it. Youknow, you're cleaning things up right,
and any leftovers get blown off witha hard stream of water. Exactly.
We don't want to don't want tocrack the pressure up too high though,
you know, but what comes outof the end of the foss it would

(18:00):
be just fine, perfectly fine.Yeah, yeah, but we do you
know, I did have a gentlemanseveral years ago that did use, you
know, one of these high pressuresprayers and it worked, but it also
took off a lot of the bark. So we don't want to see that.
Well, we saw Gary Sullivan dothat one time with his rust on
his hawthorn. You just got sofrustrated he was cleaning the sidewalk, so

(18:22):
he just turned down the pressure andturned up the nozzle and took it out
of the tree. You know thatis interesting and I know we're about at
a time, but we are.I sent you a picture rust on pairs.
I can't believe we're not getting callsabout that nothing. Yeah, yeah,
kind of amazing. Buggy Joe Bogsalways a pleasure, great information.

(18:44):
Always you extension again a website bygldot o su Happy Father's Day weekend,
you sir, Happy Father's Day toYouTube. Run you, take care and
have a great week. Are youtoo? Quick break we come back.
We'll be talking with mister Paul Reinerbecause we're broadcasting Line Today from Oakland Nursery,
Oakland Park Avenue. Stop out andsay hello. We're gonna be until
noon. I figured him out,and we're gonna find out if my guess

(19:07):
is right on why he brings somuch stuff in for Father's Day weekend.
Here on news radio six to tenWTVN broadcasting Lie Today from Oakland Nursery,
Oakland Park Avenue. Gonna be heretill noon. Come and see us,
say hello, love to talk toyou. And by the way, just
in case you don't know, Oakland'sgot their thank You sale going on.
Everything I'm talking everything that you seein here, even ken I mean he's

(19:32):
for sale, he's out front.We'll put a price on him. Think
you could get a price for him, Paul, No, okay, I
didn't think so you would say,yes, it's twenty to sixty six percent
off. I say no quite often, do you. Yes? You know
I always talk about mandevilla vines andhow beautiful they are and how aggressive they
can be. And I can justactually if you stood next one, reach

(19:53):
out and it would grab you.I've been watching that one right there for
the last half hour. Wrap aroundKen. Did you notice that well that
it needs to be more selective?You got to thank that plan. Let's
not be that intelligent. It wasactually wrapping more and now it's reaching out
another direction. Ted sloppy, Joe, suret. He's got whatever the Steve

(20:14):
T shirt is. Look at hishair too. Needs a haircut. I
think we all three of us needa haircut. Well, you don't have
any, so why would you needa hair more than you do? Oh
bullshit, Come on now I do. Oh yeah you did? You did
grow yours out. I did,just trying to look like you. You're
emulating me again as usual, Paul. That's why I said I just said

(20:37):
that before you had a chance towell, I'm a copycat. It's time
for the Paul Reiner Show, aswe broadcast live today from Oakland Nursery and
Oakland Park Avenue. Here's my reason. I'm thinking, anyway, why you
stock this thing up so much forthis sale, Because, I mean,
you always have nursery stock. Youcan come here anytime during the year and
you've got anything and everything you needfor the landscape. Get that. I

(21:00):
mean you always do, there's nodoubt about it. But this time of
the year when you go to gardenCenter and you don't see quite as much
color as you guys have here,and you've done that forever, and you
fill it up. And I've alwayssaid like Mother's Day, but just dawned
on me the other day that thereason you do this is because it's Father's
Day weekend and you want to makefathers feel much more appreciated appreciated by making

(21:23):
it look like Mother's Day. Andthought, you just you're so bright,
But obviously it's not the reason whyyou do this. You asked me earlier
why we did it, and Isaid this, because we sell it.
It's pretty complicated. Wrong, No, I didn't. That was ken Oh
I understand that that was Ken thatasked that question. Well, Ken asks

(21:48):
really highly intelligent questions. Sometimes,you know it's suspect. Now look at
that vine starting to turn around andcome this way. I'm afraid it's going
to strangle him. He doesn't lookreach for his neck. I think he
doesn't look good anyhow. Oh my, it's you know, even in his
business for an awfully long time.Spring of twenty twenty four, what do

(22:11):
you see different about this spring thanyou've seen in the past. I thought
it was a relatively easy spring inthat we had timely rains, yes,
not too much. We were notrained out very often, So in that

(22:33):
regard, I thought it was prettyeasy. Do I think a sense of
softening in the economy. Yes,I think inflation has started to affect some
people's pocket books. I think theyhave rained in on some more expensive items.
Do I think the color parts stillsells. Yes. And it's not

(22:56):
for Father's Day. It's simply becausecause ladies like color. Yes. Something
you haven't figured out down Cincinnati.You know, if you come up north
you could educate yourself. Okay,all right, but yeah, we've done
this for this forty four years.Yes, and we grow a lot of

(23:19):
material for this sale. Yes,and I said in a lot of instances
that if you waited until now,you could probably buy it cheaper and better
than if you bought it early,say Mother's Day. Well, there's no
doubt it's it's definitely cheaper. Theplants are bigger than what they are sometimes,
you know, the first week ofMay, depending on the weather.

(23:41):
So you're right, you know thedeal is there. You get a bigger
plant, you get a better price. And that's including hanging baskets and mixed
planners. You always come up withsome of the more creative and you come
up with those creations and your mixedplanters. You personally absolutely not I'm not
artistic enough. Okay, I havesome people are very artistic, but no,

(24:02):
those creations, a lot of thoseare created out at Acorn. They
do a wonderful job with that.And we do buy a lot of material
in from other people and source itsimply because from quality for quality. So
you've got quite a collection out herethat you want them. You will not
find in most places. Do youfind, Paul Reiner that more customers coming

(24:26):
in And I know you don't waiton a lot of people you just kind
of walk around and I look goodadvice and look good. It bring a
good appearance to the place. Butdo you find people are asking the staff
here more about pollinator plants as theyears go along. Oh, without doubt
you have something. You have afair interesting pollinator plants. Got an interested

(24:48):
in naty plants. Uh, you'vegot a larger interest than ever. I
think in color, Oh, nodoubt. I think color is still the
answer to almost everything. If youlook at you see where they're shopping right
now, and see where they are, they're in the color. Yep.
And like I said, we grewa lot of this for this sale.

(25:10):
We grow all the most, allthe ones, and most of the baskets.
So a lot of this is ourwork. And we started this simply
for this sale. And when Paulsays ones, he's talking about a one
gallon plant, not a four incheight in six. It's a one gallon
pot. Yeah, so it's anice sized container with a nice sized plant.

(25:33):
And we have some really super deals. You know, our four and
a half material is three nine andit's not stretched or leftover. A lot
of it's relatively fresh. We havesome wonderful deals on tomatoes and mangoes,
and we're in extra large quart size. They're buck ninety nine. So if

(25:56):
you didn't get your vegetable garden man, you still gets to plant. The
economics work with that dollar ninety nine, so you should still plan. This
sale covers everything. It covers thenursery, it covers virtual virtually everything that
we have, and it also extendsto the home stores. Besides our four

(26:18):
locations, it extends into the DublinHome Store and the new orbiting Inside and
outstore. Really yeah, so it'severything. It's literally everything, and we
do not mark stuff up and thenmark it down. It's at the price
it was at and then it's discountedaccordingly. I love it. I love

(26:40):
it. Well. You've got alot of great looking stock. As always,
you know, we talk about thenative plants, and we'll take you
a quick break. Here an acoort farm, obviously your nursery that grows
all of your nursery plants for youknow, have you noticed have you guys
shifted when you're looking at your planningahead for the next two, three,
five years out? Are you includingmore straight needed species in your growing operations?

(27:03):
Yes, we are, but youknow my opinion is everything is an
eighty somewhere. Well, did thatplant doesn't fall out of the sky.
It was an eighty somewhere and thensomeone took it and budded it and grew
it because it was the best ofus species. But yes, we do
take it into consideration. We havea lot more in eighties what you call

(27:27):
natives. It was a native somewhere. There's the Paul Show talking about gardening
and yardening and native plants and colorand you name it. We're talking about

the Dispatch, Yeah, it endedup being pretty good. You know,
we used to be a very largeuh not well, we still are

(29:18):
an exhibitor in the Home and GardenShow, but we used to have a
large booth down there also, andthen for whatever reason, Greeds entered in
and the price got too much andwe just didn't put a booth in anymore.
So the Dispats came to us witha kind of a compromise, and

(29:38):
that was the sponsor this Backyard Gardeningand folks can enter. I remember they
when it first started, and Ithink they've added a couple categories since then.

perennial garden. Goes on and onand on. But anyway you can.
You can register your garden and theneverybody else gets to vote on it.

you get some good ideas from itas well. Yeah, and they do
a nice job. And the Dispatchactually spends or oh probably three pages in
the newspaper depicting the gardens or thewinners and the runner up. So they
have done their part. Three thousanddollars prize pool. Yes, but you

(30:49):

way off coming. Yeah, Ijust want to let you know that I've
been in touch with Jerry Rose.What's he saying. He's you know,
he built the high Tunnel last year. Oh, he's cheating and he's gone.
He retired from what he was doingwith the community was you know,
the truck driving and all that stuffand snowplowing, and now he's pretty much

(31:11):
concentrated on the farming and pumpkin growing. Yeah, and he's staying kind of
quiet. That means he's got something. Yep, he's upset with the Europeans
that well, yeah, I thinka greenhouse. Yeah, I think he
thought he was the greatest in theworld, and he maybe, but he
got upset because he had those peoplein Europe that grew him in tunnel houses

(31:36):
and what were they twenty well,they were growing him in actual greenhouses twenty
nine hundred pounds or something. Iforget the last one. It's thirty.
It's broke the three thousands. Ohanyhow, so you know, Jerry's pretty
competitive. He is probably going afterit. You know, we still own
