    Those that are part of the fungi family are having a real ball. Gardeners are wondering about the toadstools popping up in their lawns; others are confounded by the stinky, phallic-looking things poking through their mulch, a mushroom commonly called the stinkhorn; and the slimy orange globs on cedar trees got many thinking aliens had landed in their landscape.

  • Digging and dividing daffodils

    If your daffodils didn’t bloom well this year, ask yourself these two questions: did you allow the foliage to die back naturally last summer before you cut it off; and has it been eons since they were last divided?  
    Patience is a virtue when it comes to daffodils. Often the first color to appear in early spring, their beauty is long awaited.  
    Then we have to wait another two months before we can remove the dulling green foliage. The foliage gathers nutrients for the bulb to store over winter, allowing it to grow and bloom next spring.
