We grow many plants in our gardens and homes introduced from other parts of the world. We try to stretch the boundaries of climates with the tedious process of planting annuals each year because they cannot survive our winters. We dig Dahlia and other tender, summer-blooming bulbs and mother them for the winter to plant them again the next late spring.
Gary and Carol McGregor of East Wenatchee will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary during an open house from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the home of their son, Steve McGregor, 5357 4th St. S.E., East Wenatchee.
Winter is slowly creeping up on us this year, but I can remember recent years when a killing frost (20 degrees) came early in September. This year we have been kissed by frost but warmed by sunshine to milder temperatures by midday.
What is wrong with this plant and how do I fix it? We have just completed an entire season of gardening questions and more than half of the 700 or so people we talked to at the WSU Plant Clinic and the farmer’s markets and Demonstration Garden asked this question.
