  • After the rains hit a few weeks ago, enough moisture settled in to trigger the development and “ripening” of some really freaky looking appendages. It is called cedar-apple rust and many gardeners where curious about the large, orange gelatinous spore horns hanging from their cedars like Japanese lanterns. 

    They strike awe and dread from me because they are fabulous looking creations of nature, but they also forewarn a rust problem in the orchard for next year.

  • The beacon of spring in these parts is undoubtedly the native dogwood. But, there are other notable spring bloomers worth consideration in the home landscape. What about Halesia or Chionanthus, commonly known as Carolina silverbell and fringe tree, respectively.

    Both trees are native to the southeast United States and are well-suited to Kentuckiana’s climate. They are perfect for home landscapes because they are small to medium in size.

  • I can’t tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes already… some nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! 

    When it comes to spring fever, the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just can’t wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes, it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.
