In the Garden: Garden mistakes

I want to share a mistake I made several years ago that I didn’t realize was a mistake until last summer. I like to call this “Wrong plant; wrong place.” (This was before I learned the Master Gardener mantra: Right plant; right place.)

In the Garden: Ornamental grasses can add zip to your garden

Dependable, easy care ornamental grasses are top-notch candidates for year-around interest. The majority are prized for their airy, graceful shapes that shimmer with just a hint of breeze. It’s an interesting group of mostly trouble-free plants with many that thrive in our climate.

In the Garden: Start planning now for a fire-wise fire season

In the Garden: The right steps for reblooming orchids

My first memories of orchids are the corsages my father bought my mother each year for Mother’s Day. She would keep them in the fridge and be able to wear them to church for a few weeks. I remember being fascinated by the strange shape and brilliant colors of the flowers.

Fall is an excellent time to control noxious weeds such as Dalmation toadflax, rush skeletonweed, Canada and biennial thistles, knotweed, whitetop, houndstongue, Russian and diffuse knapweed.
