Cover Crops For Small Gardens And Starting Seedlings


I'd like to get started on my garden preparation soon and I wondered if there were any cover crops you would suggest for a small garden. I know they are typically planted in the fall and I'm not sure if there are any you can do in Spring? I will be putting early veggies in as soon as possible (peas, etc.), so it would be either something I could plant and till in before then, or something I could plant in the areas of the garden which get the later crops.

Also, I'd like to start some seedlings inside this year, flowers, tomatoes, and peppers. So any resources on that would be appreciated. If I want to do melons and squash is it better to directly sow the seeds or are these also good started indoors?

Lastly, are there any products you'd recommend for this, grow lights, heating mats, etc? I won't have a lot of room, but hope to do 4-6 flats.

Thank you!

Planting Arborvitae and Bulbs In November

Hello. A friend dropped off several potted arborvitae they didn't get around to planting. I was wondering if it was too late to plant them. If I can, should I fertilze them. Also, several of mine really struggled after our harsh winter last year and have large patches of dead growth. I'm wondering if these patches will eventually fill in so the tree doesn't look so ratty and also if there's anything I could do to help this. Lastly, they also gave me a bag of daffodils and one of hyacinth. May I still plant these? They did give me the receipt, would I be better off returning them? Thank you.

What is wrong with this Maple Tree?

Our client brought in some leaves from his maple tree to see what is wrong with it. The leaves are turning colors around the edges. He has two trees next to each other and they are both effected. They are about 40 ft tall and about 20 ft from the road. None of the branches are dying and the leaves haven't fallen yet. It is unknown if this has happened in previous years since they have just moved in a month ago but they started changing colors two weeks ago. Thanks
