Hello, and thank you for answering my question. I planted a redbud tree this spring. It's about 4 feet tall. I have cleared out a perimeter that's over a 2 ft radius. Can I plant tulips and daffodils in the outer 6-8 inches? Please say yes! :-)
Everywhere that I reseeded with some black dirt the grass is now yellowing. No amount of fertilizer or water will help. I have my soil sample kit but have not mailed it in yet. From what I have read it sounds like soluble salt. What should I add now before it dies?
Is it possible to get my garden soil tested for Ochratoxin-A? It is a harmful mycotoxin that causes cancer and brain damage.
I tested positive for high levels of it in my body, but my house came back clean. I am an avid gardener and eat the vegetables I grow. It is possible for crops to be systemically affected, yet I'm not sure if the toxin sticks around in the soil. There is very little information online.
Any answers would be deeply appreciated.
I found these in our woods. They look like hostas, but no hosta roots have ever been disposed of in that area of the woods, so don't think they are a transplant. They do look nice. Can you identify? Thank you. Judy Olson
Hello! My husband and I moved to Klamath Falls in April from Oklahoma. We are interested in turning our very small front lawn into a cottage style pollinator garden, hoping to use mostly native plants if possible. The spot however does stay in the shade most of the day as we have a large tree out front. Any suggestions for types of plants from this area would be incredibly helpful! Thank you so much for your time!
