County Horticulture Educator

  • Over-wintering tender bulbs
    With frost, the blooming life of cannas, dahlias, gladiolas, and calla lilies will come to an end. Because of their tender nature, the corms, tubers, and rhizomes (grouped together as “tender bulbs”) that produce these plants are killed by our cold winters and cannot be left in the soil.
  • Late summer lawn care tips
    Late summer and fall are an active time of growth for our lawns and it is important to keep them adequately watered if rainfall is insufficient.
  • Plant hardy bulbs for spring beauty
    Spring flowering bulbs such as tulip, daffodil, grape hyacinth, and Siberian squill add beauty to any landscape.
