Hi, My question is: how would you recommend handling keeping the area beneath...

Hi, My question is: how would you recommend handling keeping the area beneath a wood fence clear of weeds? The fence is at least a couple of inches or more above the ground. And also the area surrounding a chain link fence that goes down to the ground level? As a gardener, I try never to use toxic chemicals, am OK with a few weeds, like native plants, reducing grass etc. while the neighbors on both sides like grass, tidiness, use pesticides/herbicides/chemical fertilizers liberally and they get angry about the fenceline. I'd like to resolve the situation instead of experiencing conflict every year. Thank you for any recommendations you might offer. Julie

peas seedlings wilting

Hello! Some (but not all) of the snap pea seedlings in our Beaverton Learning Garden are wilting. We're not sure if this is an environmental issue (too much water?) or a disease. The variety is Sugar Spring, purchased from Territorial this year. They were direct sown around the beginning of April and covered with row cover. Can you help? Thanks!

Insect Repellent

Each spring a type of beetle hatches that seems to live in our Maple trees. Looks like something prehistoric, but is completely harmless. They do come into our house though and I'm looking for a "natural" repellent to keep them out.

Is the 88% Beef in Taco Bell Products Pure?

So, recently there was an annoucnemtn by Taco Bell that 88% of it's beef is real beef. My question is, of that 88% how much is beef like one would eat from a steak, vs cartalidge, bone, and other additive. Is Taco Bell allowed to call the 88% pure beef because of a lose definition of what beef is, or is it truely just a combination of beef like you'd get from a steak etc.

Can you please help me identify this plant/berry


I was in Boulder in March and am hoping somebody can help me identify a plant/berry that I noticed in many places. I found these ones in Chataqua where they were very prevalent. The plant was about 12" tall, very twiggy with a red-brownish hue, had no leaves, but there were red berries that were almost sparkly looking. The berries did not really cluster but there would be several in close proximity to one another. Any idea? Thank you greatly for the help.

planting geraniums in ground

How can I judge when it is safe to plant geraniums in the ground in westland, Michigan? Is Mother's Day, Sunday May 11th, too early this year? My mother in law was recently diagnosed with cancer and we are all trying to go blow our her yard work on Mother's Day. She would love some geraniums planted but I don't want to do it if that is too early. Thanks.

Pest control

1. Trying to best time the application of Hort. Oil for control of Honey Locust plant bug. Under the microscope looking at a 2nd. yr. twig with buds just swelling. Removed a single bud scale and found 5-6 active bright orange mite like creatures with 8 legs and a few orange eggs. Do the nymphs of the plant bug have 8 legs or is this a different arthropod? 2. Will Hort.Oil work for the newly emerged Vibernum beetle larvae? We've used Sevin with very good results in the past but there are still plenty of bright red berries hanging on this spring and the birds are enjoying them. Thanks, Henry Street

Edna's Best Organics Soil

Where can I find information to the why or fixes to the problems with Edna's Best Organics (bagged) soil. I've already got the FYI that all that soil I'd bought of that brand and put in my planters and pots is to the why my plants and garden plants are dieing. Now however the only information I got when asking the Garden Center I'd bought it from was that to bring it back. ??? I've already USED the soil in my planters and do not have the 15 bags of it to return! So I'm willing to try a fix if there is one; but I'm not even finding indication to admittance to this problem other than from the Garden Center after I'd heard it from a fellow gardener. And I would really like to have an idea to how I can remedy this since it's already in my planters. I do have all the receipts of my purchases. And I wasn't really even given an answer to if this herbicide in the bagged soil is also a problem with Edna's Best Compost and Flower and Vegetable Soil too. I would say it is as my indoor house plants are also taking a turn for the worse since I'd used bags of Edna's Best Flower and Vegetable on my indoor plants. And I wasn't given the option to be refunded for the bad soil I'd already opened and used, just the ones that aren't open.. Any help you can help me with on this? Plz... TY

White Asparagus Seedling

I have some asparagus seedlings going in my greenhouse. The greenhouse get's natural light and I have grow lights to supplement as well. One of my seedlings sprouted white. I didn't think it was going to survive but it has ferned out like the others. Will this little guy survive? Will it always be white?

The variety is Precoce D'Argenteuil Asparagus, which I bought from Baker Creek. (sorry for the picture being my husband could do :))
