Horticulture Tidbits

This column, I will periodically update with tips to help you with your lawn, landscape, irrigation, trees, just about anything to do with landscape horticulture. Sometimes I get asked the same question by several people. It is easier for me to share the information this way so everyone learns from these questions. Sometimes I receive information from green industry friends, I think is worthy of sharing. I hope it is as helpful for you as it is fun for me to do this. If you have ideas or questions for me to share, please email me at
