This presentation combines several topics of interest for plant care workers:
• Watering - A discussion of the correct watering methods of plants in the landscape versus containers, and water movement in newly planted shrubs/trees in soil-less media versus in soil and container media.
• Trees – Tree Campus USA and why this has been a good thing for our Kansas State campus trees.
• Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) – developing a strategic plan for over 250 ash trees on the Kansas State campus
• Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI)— as the highest water use efficiency of any irrigation method, why SDI is an important aspect of future irrigation systems, and some success stories.
