Questioning Buds and Shoots
« on: February 02, 2014, 01:15 PM »
Hello,

Today I noticed a strange blue shoot on my maple. I'm concerned if this is something I should worry about and I would like to know what It means. On my other maple, most of the buds do not look healthy. It actually looks like they died off. Please share you knowledge

First shoot pictures are the blue shoot. The rest of the pictures are the buds on the other maple.

Thanks,
nick

Hi Nick,

It looks to me like the first maple is definitely a Seahawks fan.

Go Hawks.

Looks like you Burnt it a bit when you sprayed with sulphur . Just a thought. Sometimes if your mix is too hot you can burn the buds and small twigs. They kind of turn blueish black. If you are lucky it will be like a hard prune.
