County Horticulture Educator in Clay County

  • 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.
  • Lawn grass selection
    Selecting the right grass is crucial for the long term success of your lawn.
  • Tips for watering trees and shrubs
    Check out these resources for information about watering newly planted trees and shrubs and mature trees and shrubs.
  • Lawn renovation
    Does your lawn have a few bare spots or do you have more bare spots than lawn?

  • Voles in the home lawn
    Voles are small brown rodents about the size and shape of a mouse. We usually observe their small surface tunnels winding through our lawn right after snow melt. The grass in these areas is usually eaten to the soil line, leaving the crown of the grass plant intact and healthy.
  • Seed starting tips
    Starting vegetable and flower plants from seed has its advantages.
