BEWARE eburgess.com /farmerseed.com / and other similar scams connected to directgardening.com

eburgess and farmerseed sent me magazines with almost to good to be true prices, and products,
(both company had the same items for sale, and similar prices, and same style, same website layout.)
after hours deciding how much i can afford, i was about to place a big order, but i decided to google reviews..
turns out they are most likely some sort of a scam multi-company.. seems similar to the fake seeds scams.
eburgess claims to be a 100 something year old company, so i figured they'd have some reviews..

just thought i would warn anyone who might have received the same magazines..

if you had a positive experience with this company, please share, i can only find negative reviews.

It blew up in size and I started worrying about having a pot that wouldn't stunt its growth. I finally selected a site for it, the only place in the yard with sandy soil, amended it with peat moss to lower pH, and carefully planted it, then mulched with pine needles.  Here's pictures before and after transplanting:

Daconil works well for me. It isn’t systemic, so it works on the surface and won’t absorb into the plant.

Of course, always use a well draining soil mix and don’t overwater.

That doesn’t look too bad though. It is mostly already healed. The tan color is scarring that will never go away. Black or red indicates actively growing fungus.

I’m with MeanGreen. Chewing fresh leaf gives more bang for the buck compared to tea or dried and powdered. It also makes harvest easier since you can just pick a few leaves off the tree and don’t have to fry and store. If you still have a surplus on the tree at the end of season, pick off the older leaves and air dry them for tea.

Hi everyone, I'm River_Lotus.

I maintain a witch's garden: the garden has many plants that are perfumes, medicines, and magickal plants, as well as some that I have just connected with. At the time of this posting, I have about 100 species in my collection and quite a few more on the way, as well as several species of (edible/medicinal) mushrooms. There are so many plants that are impossible to find, but it looks like some people here have a few tips to help me. I am working towards mastery of Veneficium (The use of nightshades and poisons, such as datura, belladonna, and mandrake as entheogens and medicine). My experience so far with it has been very positive so if you want to learn about it, ask me!

I maintain a seed library dedicated to occult usage. It's still in its infancy but I hope in the coming months more plants become available. Perhaps something I acquire here will end up there

Just for a showing. Amanita muscaria var. persicina which is now just A. persicina.

Any Dr. Bronner's soap will work but most people using it on peppers and such I've met are using peppermint scent due to peppermint being discouraging to bugs as is. As long as you don't over mix the soap it won't hurt your plants and also apply when the plants won't be in full sun at least a few hours. I randomly mix by eye but a teaspoon or two in a quart or 2 tbsp in a gallon sprayer or whatever will do. It's a contact kill so try and cover every nook and cranny you can on the plants. Neem is really good too. For small things like spidermites the mechanical action of the oil gumming them up will kill shortly after application. However for bigger insects like stink bugs etc it will not kill them right away. Neem acts by disrupting the neurotransmitters of the insect and causes them to quit eating and breeding until they die of starvation. It will collapse full blown infestations if used properly. Must be applied 3-5 times minimally once a week or so to cause the desired population collapse of your pests. I've used it many times and it does work. But a one time application will only effectively infect only those that got direct contact or fed off a plant that was treated within a few days of application. Any bugs that didn't get exposed in that application will replace those that were effected quickly as if nothing happened. Good thing about neem is the mechanical action of the oil itself as a direct kill for small pests but also will take out bigger pests effectively if applied correctly. It doesn't have to be a contact kill at all though. If applied topically feeding insects will get exposed biting on a sprayed plant for a few days but if used as a drench for the soil the plants will literally uptake the active constituents too and have effect without topical application at all. It also seems to effectively ward off fungal diseases too and boost the immunity of the plants in general.

Hey everyone, some of my Trichocereus have what I assume is a fungal infection thats spreading. I've isolate them from healthy plants and treated with copper fungicide but it hasn't had much effect. Just hoping maybe someone who's dealt with something similar could offer any advice.
