  • A blanket of snow has the ability to brighten the dreariest of days. And, despite school closures and tricky driving, a snow-covered landscape proves to be quite beautiful. It’s not so bad for the plants either, so don’t be tempted to knock the snow off drooping branches.

    Snow has an insulating effect which is particularly useful when we do have frigid temperatures. Ground level snow will actually protect the roots and crowns of perennial and woody plants, but you may notice a little burn above the snow level when it comes to broadleaf evergreens. 

  • Cut flowers are undoubtedly the most popular manifestation of showing your love for someone on Valentine’s Day, but potted flowering plants do the trick, too.  Perhaps the potted bloom has the potential to remind your lover that the sentiment lasts all year… but what does it mean if you can’t get it to bloom again? Is your loved doomed? Of course not, but here are some tips just in case.

    African violets are sweet and have the ability to bloom all year round so consider these as a lasting representation of love.

  • The University of Kentucky received a grant to offer a program for new and young farmers. The program is now being offered to groups of counties in a local area.

  • * Cynthiana News, Feb. 15, 1866 -- “Last Saturday night, the jail at this place was emptied of its inhabitants. Four prisoners escaped. These men, we understand, were put in jail for stealing. Mr. Bruce has one more boarder left, whom it is said refused to leave as he asserts his innocence of the charges preferred against hime. He should be bailed out.”

  • When it comes to the home orchard, some pre-planning is a must. Some fruit is easier than others and it is often hard to discern in the catalogs which apple variety, blueberry or persimmon will do well in Kentuckiana. 

    My No. 1 rule is the more information a catalog provides the better. Gathering as much information as possible is the key to success when it comes to fruit trees.

    So where do you find the information? A good place to start is with local university research and recommendations.

  • This time of the year subtle warnings come from professionals reminding the consumer to be skeptical of mail order catalogues or advertisements that claim “new horticultural breakthroughs,” otherwise outrageous claims or mass quantities of things for bargain basement prices.
