Q&A: Patching Bare Spots

Question: Is it time to start patching bare spots now with new seed?

Answer: Now is a good time. Dig the soil a little bit and add some compost, then level the soil and sow your seeds. They should pop up in 7-14 days if kept moist. Best wishes with your lawn!

Q&A: Zinnia Transplanting

Question: I am growing zinnias from seed in cell packs and they are about 2-3 inches tall. Should I transplant them into larger containers until I can set them outside?

Answer: Your zinnias can’t be planted outside until after the danger of frost is past, so you will probably need to move them into larger containers, possible individual 2-inch pots. Move them up a size when the roots have filled the soil mix and before they become pot-bound.

Q&A: Row Covers vs. Landscape Fabric

Question: What is the difference between row covers and landscape fabrics?

Answer: Row covers are intened to be used over plants to protect them from cold or to exclude pests. There are different weights of fabric depending on the need — heavy fabrics offer the best protection from the cold, while light ones are best for insect control so the plants don’t heat up too much underneath. Landscape fabric is intended to be used on the soil surface to block weeds. Although I suppose that, in a pinch, you could swap uses, it’s probably best to purchase the correct material in the first place. For example, black landscape fabric used as a row cover might cause the plants underneath to overheat.

Tip: Get a Kitchen Compost Bucket

Although a kitchen compost bucket is useful year-round, with the spring appearance of garden-fresh vegetables and fruits, it’s usefulness become paramount. Unless, of course, you don’t mind fruit flies zipping about your kitchen. Commercially available kitchen compost buckets have tight-fitting lids and activated carbon filters that trap food odors. They are variously made of plastic, stainless steel and glazed clay. Most are attractive enough to have sitting near the kitchen sink.

Q&A: Shade Garden in Miami

Question: I have a small shaded garden in my backyard, and I need plants that will grow well in the shade in Miami Florida. Any recomendations?

Answer: There are many flowers that bloom in a fairly bright shade location. Some of your options are: Impatiens, Begonia, Cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis), Oxalis, Mexican Petunia (Ruellia), Pansy, Texas Gold Columbine, Cyclamen, Flowering Tobacco (Nicotiana), Hosta, Tradescantia, Violet, Chinese Ground Orchid (Bletilla striata), and Wishbone Flower (Torenia fournieri). If your shade is dense these flowers may not do well. It may be a good idea to have some trees trimmed a little to brighten up the shade. Thanks for the question

Q&A: Root Bound Annuals

Question: What is the best way to treat the root system of root-bound annuals before planting?

Answer: In some cases, severely root bound plants have already become so stressed that they will not thrive no matter what you do. But in general, moderately root bound transplants do just fine. In fact, a strong root system will make a strong plant. The best thing to do is to try to loosen the roots somewhat so that they are directed outward, and loosen the soil around the planting hole so that the roots can move into it easily. You might also pay special attention to those plants at watering time since they will have suffered some root damage in the process. Finally, they will establish fastest in moist but well drained soil with a high level of organic matter and adequate fertility.

Q&A: Birds Eating Seedlings

Question: I have tried several years running to plant sunflowers from seeds, however, the birds eat the seeds and young sprouts. Is there something I can do to deter the birds from eating my precious seeds?

Answer: Unfortunately, sunflower seeds are a favorite of most birds. You can try erecting bird netting over newly seeded areas, making sure it’s high enough to allow growth and not let the birds poke through it. When the plants are a few inches tall, they should be safe from birds. Good luck!

Tip: Keep You Camera Handy

Taking photos of our gardens is both a fun pastime and a big help in planning for any changes in the garden. Unfortunately, spring seems to go by at a breakneck pace, and what was beautifully in bloom one day is often gone before you have time to take photos (let alone enjoy it). So, make sure you have your camera readily available, perhaps sitting near the door you most often use to go into the garden, and, if needed, get a new memory card. The best light for photography is early morning and at dusk. Try to avoid taking photos on a bright, sunny afternoon, when you’ll get harsh shadows in your photos.

Q&A: Pruning a Climbing Rose

Question: What’s the proper way to prune a climbing rose?

Answer: Climbing roses produce blooms on new shoots that grow from old wood. A climbing rose can be allowed to reach the height desired before any pruning begins, which means leaving it untouched for 2-3 years. When the rose reaches its desired height, start training it horizontally to encourage production of sideshoots off of the main canes. Most climbers flower well with little pruning besides removal of dead, diseased or weak growth. The main canes only need pruning back to keep it from traveling too far, and laterals (sideshoots) can be lightly pruned back 3 to 6 inches or 3 to 4 buds. After at least three years, you can remove a few of the oldest canes to induce new main cane growth. In this way, the rose will always have a majority of 2 to 3 year old wood from which the flowering laterals grow.

Q&A: Planting Sweet Potatoes

Question: When and how do you plant sweet potatoes?

Answer: Sweet potatoes grow best in the southern states where the days are long, warm and humid. Most sweet potatoes need 90-120 warm days to mature. Sweet potatoes for the garden are usually started by planting slips or prestarted plants that are sold bareroot. They require a warm soil so they are planted in late spring or early summer. To help the soil warm faster you can use a raised bed and cover it with black plastic. To create the perfect environment, build long, wide, 10″ inch high ridges spaced 3 1/3 feet apart. Work in plenty of compost and plant the sweet potato pips 6″ inches deep and 12″ inches apart. Avoid the use of fertilizers high in nitrogen, or you’ll have luxurious tops and very little tuber production.

Q&A: Deer Fencing

Question: How tall a fence do I need to keep deer out of the garden? What’s the best material?

Answer: Deer can and will leap over fences to get at a garden, so you need one at least 8′ high to keep them out. Deer are hesitant to jump over a solid fence because they can’t see what’s on the other side, so if it’s appropriate for your situation, consider a solid fence. If you use chainlink rather than wood, you can lay some fencing flat on the ground around the perimeter. This will discourage deer from getting too close too the fence.

Tip: Have a Sunny Summer

Sow sunflower seeds in the garden for some garden “sunshine.” The giant oil seed types with the large heads are great feed for birds. Smaller-flowered multi-branching varieties make great cut flowers. Cut flower varieties grow from a few feet tall up to six feet with flower colors ranging from burgundy to pale yellow. When choosing a variety for cut flowers, read the description to see if it says “pollenless,” as this means the flowers will last longer and be less messy indoors.

Start purchasing summer bulbs, like begonias, dahlias and gladiolas; wait to plant outdoors until after your average last frost date.

Q&A: Asparagus

Question: Can I grow Asparagus in a raised bed?

Answer: You can grow aspargus in a deep raised bed. To prepare the bed, first choose a spot with good drainage and plenty of sun. Dig trenches about 15 inches deep and 4 or 5 feet apart. Asparagus prefers a sandy loam soil so you will probably need to modify your soil bit (you probably already have the sand part!). Add a layer (approx. 6″ deep) of well-rotted manure or compost in the bottom of the ditch. You can also add some bone meal — a good source of phosphorus to encourage root growth. Add back some of the soil you removed, mixing it in with the compost/bonemeal. Form a little mound along the length of the trench. Set out the crowns on the top of this mound, spreading the roots carefully and spacing about 2 feet apart. Bury the roots with about 6 inches of soil, packing it gently around the crowns. Gently water thenewly-planted crowns. As the shoots emerge, keep adding more soil around them, until the trenches are filled to ground level. Ten plants per person should give you plenty of asparagus.

Q&A: Seedlings Wilt

Question: When I start my seeds, they grow like mad for a couple of weeks and then begin to wilt. Am I overwatering them?

Answer: It sounds like your plants are “damping off”. This is usually caused by poor air circulation, overcrowded seedlings, and/or over-watering — usually in combination. Here are a few tips to minimize the likelihood of damping off. Since the fungus enters the plant at the soil line you can try to make an inhospitable environment for the fungus. When planting seeds, cover the soil with a fine layer of milled sphagnum peat moss or “play sand” (this is sand that has been sterilized; you should be able to find it at a hardware store or lumberyard). This provides a sterile, dry — and therefore unfavorable to the fungus — surface at the point it usually enters the stem. Provide good air circulation (a fan blowing gently in the room — but not directly on plants — is one way), and do not wet the foliage when you water. Be sure not to overwater.

Q&A: Planting Seeds Through Landscape Fabric

Question: After I prepare the soil for my vegetable garden, I plan to put down landscape fabric then sow the seeds directly through holes I cut into the fabric. My question is does this sound feasible and is there a specific procedure for sowing seeds through landscape fabric?

Answer: Landscape fabric is generally suggested for areas with relatively permanent plantings such as trees and shrubs, and sometimes perennials, depending on the situation. Vegetable gardens are renewed each spring, which often means tilling and adding amendments, both of which would be difficult with landscape fabric in place. You can use landscape fabric under permanent walkways, but within the vegetable beds, you should consider using organic mulch such as straw, grass clippings, or shredded bark.

Tip: Remove Spent Blooms on Lilacs and Rhododendrons

Snap or prune off the faded flowers from rhododendrons, azaleas, and mountain laurels. Be careful to avoid damaging the growth bud just below the flower cluster. This puts the plant’s energy into new growth rather than seed production. Pinch off the step tips of azaleas to keep plants bushy. Remove faded lilac blooms to improve next year’s bloom.

Tip: Plant Asparagus

Asparagus is a perennial that will produce harvests for 20 years or more. Set out bare-root asparagus plants in an 8-inch-deep trench, setting crowns atop mounds of soil and spreading roots over them.

Q&A: Mulching Around Plants

Question: I have two large areas of Hostas, Rhododendron, and Azaleas in my front yard. Do I mulch after the Hostas have come up or can I do it before? If I do it before, blocking the sun penetration, will they grow through the mulch? And, after the season, in fall, do I have to remove all the mulch? Or, can I just leave it to decompose and cover with new mulch in Spring? I guess, in a nutshell, my question is– can I just lay the mulch out and watch the plants grow through?

Answer: You can mulch your perennials before, during, or after they come up. They will grow through the mulch. I usually wait until the plants a peeking through, then mulch around them. In the fall, just leave it there to decompose as you suggest. You can add more to help protect them from winter frost, heaving, etc. You’re definitely on track to having a good garden. Keep up the good work!

Q&A: Planting Raspberries

Question: What time of year should I plant new raspberries and how should the planting be done?

Answer: Raspberries are usually planted in the early spring. Raspberry plants need full sun exposure and a soil that holds moisture but drains well, such as a good, rich, crumbly garden soil. They prefer a pH that is slightly acidic (5.5-6.0). Clear and till the planting area, removing large rocks, and work in some organic material and bone meal at tilling time. A couple of hours before planting, soak the roots in a bucket of water. When planting the raspberries, set them a few inches deeper than they were growing at the nursery. While growing (especially during flower/fruit production) your plants will need a regular water supply. To help keep the plants from drying out, a thick layer of mulch, such as straw, is beneficial. The mulch also helps keep weeds at bay.

Q&A: Materials for Edging

Question: What factors should I keep in mind when I’m weighing the benefits and drawbacks of the different types of edging products used to separate turf from garden areas?

Answer: Variables include availability, initial cost, durability, and appearance. Ease of installation is also a factor. For example, large cement blocks are heavy to move around, although they rank high in durability. If you’ll be having the edging installed by professionals, I’d suggest going with the highest quality you can afford. If you’re installing it yourself, you can decide what’s most important to you — weight, expense, etc. and decide from there. Note that very inexpensive rubber edging may seem like a bargain, but it may also heave out of the ground and need to be fixed each spring. If cost is more important than labor, however, it might be the right choice for you.

Tip: Mark Crowded Daffodil Clusters to Divide Later

When you notice concentrated clusters of daffodils, mark those spots with short bamboo or plastic stakes. After the flowers bloom and the foliage dies, you’ll want to dig up and divide the bulbs. Replant and fertilize those bulbs throughout the garden and in new spots for surprises next spring.

Tip: Save Sunny Spots for Sun-Loving Crops

If sunny space is at a premium in your garden, save it for tomatoes, peppers, and other sun lovers. Beets, broccoli, peas, and leafy greens can tolerate part shade.
