plants are tissue cultured plants unless otherwise noted.
In business since 1973 Container grown and guaranteed to be disease free
elderberry plants come from hardwood
and softwood above ground cuttings
only. We never do bare-root cuttings
with the idea that the soil on the
bare-root plants can spread
soil-borne organisms and disease.
Before we stick elderberry
cuttings to root in our clean,
sterile, new Oasis root cubes we
soak them in a dip of Zerotol.
This is a hydrogen dioxide solution
to kill and control horticulture
diseases. This kills spores of
algae, bacteria and fungi. We also
add Zerotol to our misting
solution to further minimize disease
in our propagation beds.
plant our elderberry plants try to
keep them at least 100ft. away from
other elderberry plantings for
disease control. I think, and
hope, the Zerotol has controlled
the eriophid mites which are a
common pest of elderberries.
Note: The way my fingers are
puckered up I don't think bores,
insects or mites could survive in
our Zerotol mist system.
