    Fig Bush

    Gloria, it would be a good idea to remove the fig so the plant can concentrate on growing roots, stems and leaves.

    What's the weather in your area? 2021 Edition

    We no longer have snow in the forecast! But, we will be getting rain. The temps are going up above seasonal, and I'm loving it! High 37 with sunny clear skies! Love this thaw, as it is slow, so we do not get any flooding! We are losing an inch, or so each day, so we should be snow free...

    planting seeds

    Last frost date here is May 24th. When I used to start all my seeds it was in mid to late April so they were not too tall!

    Hi Lyn! Hi Woodie! Pretty much the same here. We have light fluffy snow for today. Could see another 2-3"s on top of what we already got over the last week. There is more to come next week! At least the polar vortex is weakening, and the temps are beginning to rise. Looks like we will be be...

    Hi Lyn! You guys are having it rough! Hang in there, things will warm up again for you! After a cold, but sunny day yesterday, we are back into more snow as another system moves in. I is so hard to predict how much snow we will get because the weather has been so patterns...

    What's the weather in your area? 2021 Edition

    Going to be hit bad tomorrow! This will be our first major snow storm of the season ( for my area )....looks like 8 inches is possible. It will come in 2 waves with the worse late evening with heavy snowfall and strong gusty winds. We expect 30+ mph winds out of the north which should cause...

    Elderberry bushes

    Deers love elderberry! Your plants should sprout at the soil level around the trunk! If they do come back come spring you will need to protect them from deer, or the same thing will happen again. Are you planning on planting them in the ground? Do you have a sheltered area that you can fence...

    Fig Bush

    Good morning Gloria! Think the main issue with figs is that they hate soggy soil and are prone to root rot.....they like to stay on the dry side...Taking the pots to the sink and water from above until water starts running out the bottom is the way to go, but make sure they drain well so they do...

    Fig Bush

    Hi Gloria! Fancy meeting you here! :) When is your frost free planting time? Looks like they need to be potted up properly....what variety are they? I'll need to do a search on them first!

    Growing oak tree from acorn

    Hi! Welcome to our forum! Yes, there is a problem. The soil is too wet and the acorn root is rotting! It is too late to do anything! If you find more acorns try again. Use a sterile soil designed for seed starting, water soil lightly enough to moisten it. Do not overwater! Wait until the...

    What's the weather in your area? 2021 Edition

    Had a very intense Low Pressure system move in yesterday! The winds were horrific out of the SW off the lake! 37 mph sustained winds with 50 to 60+ gusts! Even hit a few 70+ mph peak gusts by mid afternoon! Also had a few thunderstorms with intense downpours around the same time!
