Tim’s Tips: Time to fertilize and water plants

Early Spring Flower

April is typically the month when our outdoor plants begin to awaken from their winter’s sleep.

Still, slowly but surely, the plants will continue to grow — and there are things …

   So here we are just two weeks out of winter, and the landscape is acting like it’s May.    Over in Derry Twp., Heng Lim shakes his head in disbelief at peonies that are already showing plump flower buds and at a dwarf lilac that’s about to bloom.    But what has him most …

How to Grow Lilium in the Garden

Liliums, often called lilies are an easy perennial plant for the home gardener. We have tiger lilies growing around our house. I remember them as a young girl, because you could pick the flowers off and suck the nectar. It is no wonder that humming birds and butterflies love the flowers of this plant. Lilies …

Time to plant grass is now

The recommendation is to sow five pounds to 10 pounds of perennial ryegrass seed per 1,000 square feet of lawn. Use the high seeding rate in St. Augustine lawns. Rake or drag the seeded areas to increase the seed to soil contact. After the ryegrass emerges, apply eight pounds to 12 pounds of 13-13-13 fertilizer …

The Gardener Within: Perennial bulbs give gardens a rainbow hue

We gardeners may be cockeyed optimists by nature, but we’re pragmatic by experience. Instant gratification is not something we expect from our gardens. We accept the months of anticipation, the aching knees and sore backs from hours of stooping and kneeling, and the all-too-short payoff come spring and summer. What’s hard to take is when …
