  • So much for the raspberries this year, not the best crop we’ve seen, in fact each year it seems to get a little messier than the last.

    We typically cut the ‘Royalty’ raspberries all the way to the ground each year and forgo an early crop to manage disease, but it doesn’t seem to be working that well this time around. It has not been a total loss, but about half the canes are dried up and diseased.

  • Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around. It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads; it likes humid and dry weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started. 

    The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection and placement and adopting good cultural practices. Most powdery mildew problems won’t do too much harm but some plants suffer decline if it is a repeat problem.

  • Have you ever considered the scape? The scape is the flower stalk of members of the allium family and for culinary purposes this includes onions, leeks, chives and garlic. 

    I had never considered using the scape of these plants until a visiting gardener recommended that I put my garlic plants on double duty.  She suggested a pesto recipe using the garlic scape instead of a leafy herb.

    Typically we remove the scape so all the bulb’s energy is spent on bulb development and not bloom; so using the scape in the process makes particular sense.
