Well, another year is over. Gardening was definitely a challenge this year.
Dear Santa: Another year has come and almost gone but I hope you will still have time to spread some holiday cheer to all.
Christmas Eve is only a week away.
We seem to be going from cold to warm and then back again. I guess this is winter in New England.
As the holiday decorating season gets underway, people will be using many natural greens to decorate their homes.
The cold weather seems to have set in early this year.
This week I will answer a few questions that have been e mailed in to me at the Daily News.
Other than the oak trees, the leaves are off the trees. After a summer of seeing leaves on the trees, it is funny to just see tree branches.
The weather outside is getting colder.
There is a misconception that you should only apply lime to your lawn and gardens in the spring.
I would guess that most areas have had a frost.
>Over the past week, I have talked to many people about a problem that they are having with their arborvitaes.
The sad reality is that we have to begin to think about the arrival of winter.
October is here and it’s time to think spring flowers. No, I haven’t totally lost my mind. October is the month for planting your spring flowering bulbs.
Over the last few weeks, I have been telling you how to prepare your lawn for seeding.
The nice thing about September is that we have those cool nights and warm days.
We have had a fair amount of rain this summer.
I would guess that we can say goodbye to August. Never mind that the summer has gone by quickly, the whole year is going by quickly.
As much as we hate to admit it, fall is coming to our neck of the woods.
August use to be one of the most carefree months of summer.
August has arrived and our gardens are producing all kinds of flowers and vegetables.
The muggy weather is back.
The weather is a funny thing when it comes to our gardens. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were dealing with almost too much rain. Now we need to be watering our plants almost every day. The changing weather has created problems in our gardens. One of the most common customer problems […]
July may be vacation month for many gardeners, but the gardens still need attention. Let me give you a list of things to keep you busy. We have been getting the rain we need to make everything grow in the garden. The plants are growing very well. The weeds aren’t at a loss for […]
Well, the rain has kept up and as I thought, fungus diseases are showing up on all kinds of plants.
The weather has co-operated and our gardens are growing quickly.
Each week, there always seems to be any number of things to tell you.
We have had our first heat wave of the season.
We are now into June and contrary to what many people think, it is not too late to be planting in our gardens.
I hope you all realize how rare it is to get the Friday thru Monday of Memorial Day Weekend without one day being rainy.
As we rapidly approach Memorial Day weekend, I have 2 questions. How did the month of May go by so fast? And is this weekend really the weekend to plant all of the frost sensitive plants? As far as the month of May going by so fast, I guess that is what happens, as you […]
Mother’s Day has come and gone.
Over the last few weeks, there have been an increasing number of people stopping into the store to ask about controlling ticks.
The end of April. All in all, a pretty good month for doing things in the garden.
It is so nice to have a week of sunny days. As you can tell, it doesn’t take a lot to make me happy.
In my last column, I told you that I would discuss some of the organic ways to control weeds and insects in your lawn.
As we wind down the month of March, we begin to be able to do some things in the garden.
Let’s take some time to talk about the 4 Step. No, not the 4 step dance, the 4 step lawn fertilizer program.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
March is the cruelest month.
The month of March.
I think it is time to have that talk.
This is the time of the year that spring fever can hit really hard.
