  • Dig and divide iris and daylily bulbs

    Why is it that the perfect time to dig and divide your iris bed is in July at the height of the season’s heat?  
    For bearded iris, it’s because they go through a dormant period in the summer.
    This hardy perennial is a beautiful spring bloomer that is virtually immune to diseases. But to ensure health and vigor, you should divide your bearded iris every three to five years.  
    If they receive adequate sunlight (at least six hours a day), but do not bloom well, then it is definitely time to divide.

  • Small ears may mean poor pollination

    Small stalks, small ears, poor kernel development …  does this describe your corn crop this year? Or maybe the raccoons absconded with the crop.
    If this sounds like your garden, there may be several factors at work. Drought at the wrong time can stunt your corn crop; cold damage can stunt corn (if you put your crop out early you could see a little stunting from a late spring cold snap); and poor drainage and poor soil fertility, especially nitrogen, can stunt the crop as well.
