Trimming apple trees

Historically I have trimmed my two apple trees the first week in February. My neighbor indicated that the weather is too warm since we have had such an unusual winter. Is this true? Or, can I trim them when the temperature is in the mid to upper 40s?See More

Cauliflower is one of the several vegetables in the species Brassica oleracea in the genus Brassica, which is in the family Brassicaceae. It is an annual plant that reproduces by seed. Typically, only the head (the white curd) is eaten. The cauliflower head is composed of a white inflorescence meristem. Cauliflower heads resemble those in broccoli, which differs in having flower buds. Brassica oleracea also includes broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, and kale, though they are of different cultivar groups.The oldest record of cauliflower dates back to the 6th century B.C.There are four major groups of cauliflower.Italian This specimen is diverse in appearance, biennial and annual in type. This group also includes white, Romanesco, various brown, green, purple, and yellow cultivars. This type is the ancestral form from which the others were derived.

WINTER IN THE LANDSCAPE

Mid January in the Miami valley in Ohio should be marked by consistently lower temperatures, snow on the ground, and an increasing depth of frost in the soil. None of those are the case for 2017 so far. In less than one week temperatures have fluctuated from the single digits and teens to nearly 60 degrees. Heavy rains, while fortunately not the snow that could have been, have saturated soils that have yet to freeze. More seasonable, low temperatures are expected but will not likely persist. Time to check the landscape for any issues.The temperature pattern we have can cause some problems that can be easily solved if noticed and corrected in a timely manner. Look closely at recently planted material. Unfrozen, high moisture soils with the widely fluctuating temperatures we are having are the just right conditions for frost heaving. Check perennials that were planted last fall, both new installations as well as any that were divided and reset. Check shrubs and smaller trees as well,…See More

What Plant AM I? for January 14th, 2017

What Plant AM I?I am found throughout all of Ohio, is usually found as an understory shrub of moist to wet woodlands that is one of the first shrubs to bloom, usually in late winter. If you scrape my twigs and branchlets, I emit a spicy fragrance.I have bright red fruits appear in late summer and early autumn on female shrubs, and are often quickly eaten by wildlife. I have dark green, glossy foliage, like that of Pawpaw, is unusual for woody plants that can thrive in full shade.I am a native of the Eastern United States. I can grow to 12 feet tall and 15 feet wide, when found under optimum conditions. I member of the Laurel Family, it is related to Sassafras.I am the favorite food plant of two lepidopterous insects. More so, my Tleaves, buds, and new growth twigs can be made into a tea.In fact, Native Americans, including the Cherokee, Creek, and Iroquois used me for treatments in multiple ailmentsSee More

Melt the Ice without Killing the Grass !

If the weather predictions are correct, our landscapes may get a coating of ice tonight and tomorrow morning ! Mark Webber may even have trouble making it into the WHIO Studio tomorrow morning to do his Garden Talk show ! ! Traditional ice melt products ( sodium chloride ... better known as rock salt) will do a good job on the ice tomorrow tonight and tomorrow morning , but will not be a friend to your lawn and landscape . You have choices to make , as some ice melt products are more plant friendly than others !How De-iceers work - " The Basics" - Of the snow and ice melt products available , nearly all are derived from seven or eight materials or blends of these components. Generally, all de-icing materials work in the same way : they must first attract sufficient moisture to form a liquid brine. This solution then lowers the freezing point of water thus melting ice and snow.Under normal conditions , de-icers begin by breaking the hydrogen bond that forms when water freezes. They…See More
