    Roses for the home garden
    Roses are one of the most popular garden plants in the world due to the diversity of plant form, flower color, and fragrance. 
    Spring lawn care tips
    Lawns are subject to many stressors such as weather extremes, foot traffic, diseases, etc. It is no surprise to find a few areas of lawn that are bare or thin.
    Pruning tips for overgrown or animal damaged shrubs
    Deciduous shrubs that are overgrown or damaged by animals can be a real eye sore in a landscape planting.
    Snow mold in home lawns
    As the snow continues to melt from the lawn, patches of snow mold may be revealed.
    Apple tree pruning basics
    Yearly pruning of apple trees is critical to maintain optimum fruit production.
    Sunshine brings indoor bugs
    As the weather continues to warm, some of us may find unwanted visitors in the interior of our home.
    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.
