Make spring cuts in fall?

15 May 2020 - 09:38 AM

Since I’m doing spring clean up I have some thought for next fall clean up. Can the deutzia and spirea in the front be cut back hard in the fall. If so to the ground and how often. Also can the hellebores be cut back to the ground in the fall rather than the spring.

Spreading Hollytone

15 May 2020 - 09:37 AM

I think I’ve read that you recommend Hollytone as an appropriate fertilizer for a lawn. What setting should I use for a Scott’s Rotary Spreader to apply the Hollytone? The bag only cites settings for new and established garden beds and shrubs.

Thank you

I have ant hills that are over a foot high.  #1 are ants good for the flower garden?  #2 How can I get rid of them?


I have bamboo, should the bed be dug to remove?

cut lavender, really?

In a recent video (March?) I thought I picked up that you cut your lavender, butterfly bushes, and caryopteris all right down to the ground.  Is that correct?  Even the lavender?

No-clog spray bottle

15 May 2020 - 09:28 AM

You recommended your best spray bottle for applying those deer repellents made from blood, that clog so badly in sprayers. You said that you buy it from Home Depot at one of the webinars I just watched.
Can you send a photo of it or its name? I want to buy a few.
