• Garden Plot: It’s lawn care time

    It\’s that time of year again: Time to treat your lawn with corn gluten and keep away the weeds for next summer.

  • Garden Plot: Tomato plants need warm nights

    Nights with temperatures in the 40s won\’t kill your plants as impressively as frost, but those temperatures will
    stunt the growth of your tomato plants.

  • Timing is everything: Crabgrass and cherry trees

    The ideal time to apply corn gluten to prevent crabgrass is generally when the local forsythia blooms, but it is always when the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees, as measured 4 inches down.
