Deep rake or thatch your lawn - gets rid of any dead stuff - increased growth - dead stuff inhibits growth
Not all lawns need dethatching, but when your lawn does need it, knowing how to dethatch your lawn is crucial to its future. Done properly, dethatching helps restore your lawn to health and keep it beautiful in years to come. By learning why, when and how to dethatch, you can keep your thick, lush grass on track.
If your thatch is 1–2 inches or more, you've probably already seen signs of poor grass color and weak, thin growth. Once you've confirmed your thatch exceeds the healthy mark, the time for dethatching has come.
Dethatching causes a lot of damage to your grass and should be done at a time when the grass is growing so it can fix the damage before the next dormant period. Warm-season grass can be dethatched in late spring or early summer after it starts to grow. ... Dethatching in fall results in fewer weed problems.
The best time to dethatch your lawn is when it's actively growing and the soil is moderately moist. For cool-season grasses, that's early spring or early fall. For warm-season grasses, dethatch in late spring through early summer (after the second mowing).
Aerate to help future compaction in high traffic lawn areas
Seed heavily even if you seeded in the fall - will ensure proper growth
Fertilize - feed your lawn now to get it started right - use a all purpose lawn food and fertilize light and evenly - heavier feeding is for the fall
Remove large weeds - soil is soft
Water if needed us quick snap sprinklers
*Cool-season grasses are grass types that thrive in areas with cold winters and hot summers. ... However, these grasses grow best when temperatures are between 60-75 degree F, which is why they grow most actively in the spring and fall.
*The most common types of cool-season grasses are Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fine fescue, and tall fescue. You'll often find the seeds of these grass types mixed together for different needs and uses, such as high traffic, sunny, or dense shade conditions.
*Warm-season grasses include Bermudagrass, St. Augustinegrass, Centipedegrass, Zoysiagrass, Bahiagrass and Carpetgrass. They are often called southern grasses because they grow best in hot summer areas and lack the winter hardiness of the cool-season grasses.
An optimal height for a cool-season grass generally is about 2 1/2 inches. And at each mowing, you should only be removing about the top 1/3 of the grass blade. Consequently, a good time to mow lawns is when your grass is about 3 2/3 inches high
In segment two Joey and Holly provide growing tips for cooking herbs
With the exception of basil, which likes a little shade, most herbs need at least 6 hours of sun per day. Choose a spot in your garden where they will get plenty of light.
Herb Container Garden Collection
Plant in Well-Draining Soil
Good container garden mix - or loose garden soil
Basil, once again, is the exception here. For all other herbs, fertilizing your plants once at the beginning of the growing season with an organic fertilizer, such as Plant Tone, is enough. It is best not to fertilize most herbs more than once. Basil, on the other hand, can be fertilized every 4-6 weeks.
Plant Similar Herbs Together
When selecting locations for your plants, place those with similar light and water requirements together. For instance, rosemary, thyme and lavender all prefer to be kept slightly dry, while parsley, bail and Vietnamese coriander need consistent moisture.
Know Your Basil Varieties
One of the most popular herbs is basil, which comes in many different flavors, sizes, shapes and textures. Genovese sweet basil is the classic flavor for pesto and other Italian dishes. Thai basil is spicy. And lemon or lime basil add their own distinct flavor to your dishes. A popular, new variety is boxwood basil. It looks adorable – like a miniature boxwood – and its tiny leaves pack a strong scent. Pinch basil often throughout the year to remove flowers and keep the plants full.
Separate Quick Spreading Herbs
Mint and its close relatives (lemon balm, horehound, catnip) should be planted in their own container(s). Mint is a hardy, perennial plant that can spread rapidly through the entire garden. You can prevent this from happening by planting it in a container.
Plant Your Cool Season Herbs at the Right Time
Cilantro, parsley, celery and dill all grow best when temperatures range between 50 and 70 degrees. When the temperature begins to warm up, these plants will start to bloom and will no longer produce flavorful leaves. This makes them a great choice for fall gardens, or to plant in the early spring.
Harvest frequently - keeps them growing
In segment three Joey and Holly welcome their guest author of the Straw bale garden book Joel Karsten
Joel Karsten has worked in the green industry for many years. He is the author and inventor of the straw bale garden method. He is also an avid vegetable gardener.
1. Tell us about the straw bale garden idea - where did you come up with this?
2. Do people just put their plants in the bales and hope for the best - or is there a method to growing in straw bales?
3. You sell a product called bale buster to help with preparing the bales - how is it different from other fertilizers for bales?
4. A concern about using bales is them being sprayed with pesticides - how would one know if they have?
5. How can people find out more about your books, info, etc?
In segment four Joey and Holly answer your questions
Dean writes that I live in southeastern Wisconsin, I planted garlic last October and unfortunately it grew quite a lot in the fall. I covered with leaves and recently removed leaves, but there is zero growth. Did I kill the garlic by planting too early in the fall, or can I hope it will yet grow?
A: No you did not kill it. this is normal for garlic to grow after planting in the fall and then to stop over the winter. it is fine and will jump back into growth
Q: Can I plant garlic now?
A: you can but you will not get large bulbs
Hello....hope you can help me....I hope it's not too late.
I am in S.E. Michigan and harvested day lily seeds last fall. I though I could plant them in raised beds and transplant them later. When I check online, it seems like there are some very complicated processes. Can I just plant them even though it is late in the year as far as....the existing plants are already several inches above the ground.
I would like the simplest successful method possible.
Thank you for the email. You can plant those seeds in your raised bed and keep the soil moist and in 1 to 2 weeks you will see them geminate. Daylily can be grown any time of the year as long as the soil can be worked. Once they are growing then you can move them later.
Q: Cas writes in Hi there! Great video. I've been growing Okra indoors for the past 5 weeks and things have started off good but by the 4th week my good leaves have started falling off and no new leaves have grown just the stem, but the stem is still alive. What should I do?
A: Fusarium wilt is caused by a fungal plant pathogen (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. Vasinfectum), the spores of which can survive for up to 7 years in a soil. This pathogen, which thrives in wet and warm conditions, enters the plant through its root system and compromises the plant’s vascular system, wreaking all sorts of havoc. As the name suggests, plants that contract this disease will begin to wilt. Leaves, starting from the bottom up and more predominately on one side, will turn yellow and lose their turgidity. Plants infected with this condition should be destroyed.
Start over with new seeds and potting soil and its best to keep the seedlings below 75 degrees.
