  • Pruning spring flowering shrubs

    June 1 is the official cut off that marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer.
    Does it matter that you know? Yes, if you want to properly prune because pruning after June 1 could result in no blooms next year.
    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas, rhododendrons and many others were all able to do their thing without a major frost or freeze here at the farm.

  • Fire restores prairie, eliminates thatch left over from winter

    Back in 2007 we installed a 5-acre tall-grass prairie with assistance from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Habitat Improvement Program.  
    Each year they assist a number of landowners in various ways that improve habitat, prevent erosion and protect waterways. Basically, you do the work but they supply you with the materials needed to get the job done.

  • Fireflies can help control garden pests

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
