Question: 599-3411
We have a Mimosa tree with beautiful booms every spring. Pods from the tree get all over the yard. Is there any way to stop the tree from producing these pods? Gary, Norwich, CT

Mort's Answer:
If you can sacrifice the flowers, you can stop the pods from forming. Spray with an insecticide when the flowers appear. Sevin lasts one day but will be effective in killing the flower. You indicated that you enjoy the flowers, which attract the pollen to pollinate the plant. Unfortunately, the remnant of the flowers are pods cast upon your lawn.
