Q: I have some two-year-old swampy flowers this spring, 18 inches to 2 feet tall, that spread to my happiness every year. Today my wife’s horse was grazing in the yard, and it killed 90 percent of the figs … about 3 to 4 inches. Do you think they will still flower at the end of this year?
A: When you have short flowers with lots of flowers, you can really thank the horse. I don’t think there will be any problems with them this fall. I make sure the cut edges are nice and clean. I think they will sprout, and I think they will still bloom this summer, as long as the horse does not celebrate again.
Q: When is the right time to plant pansies? Do you want full sun? What kind of soil? I want to put pans in front of the signs in front of the city hall, the police station and the amusement park. All places are in the sun. Pansies are a good choice or is there another flower to consider? I wish flowers all winter and then change them into red vegania and Joseph coat in the spring.
A: Pansy is a great choice for spring fall. They do well from sun to partial shade and to well-drained and well-drained soils. October-November is the best time to plant them. There are also other options for fall color: violas, diantus, sprats (south central Arkansas), dusty miller, cauliflower and cabbage, bright lights Swiss chard, and curved mustard. In many cases, because the pans tolerate more temperature fluctuations than they do, the violets are superior to the pans. When we get warmer, fertilize regularly during the winter.
Q: I love Zenia and I usually have good luck with them. They are eating something this year. When the plant reaches a height of two inches, the leaves are attacked and eventually destroyed. I will continue to install the new ones and it is happening. I am frustrated that the number of healthy plants is declining. what can I do?
Answer: I believe you have an animal issue. I’ve heard reports of scammers and rockets attacking Zinc this year. There may be a new fashion trend in the animal world, the “Zenia diet”! Try using a temporary isolation tool. Make a small nest with chicken wire or other wire and cover the plants. Get up and grow. There are many home remedies for animal control, from hot peppers to scavengers, but if something weren’t stupid, everyone would do it, so you have to use different things.
Q: My Zinnia and Marigolds are very big. Is there a seed market? I save a lot, but I have hundreds of marigolds. I don’t want to sell them; I will give it to them.
A: Put the seeds in an envelope and give instructions on how to plant them as holiday gifts. You can also contact your local extension office at the County Extension Office and see if they are interested in your plant sales or donate to a local school next spring.
Q: I have some kind of fungus growing on my penis. I’m not sure what it is or what it should do. I thought I would let them die because the season was over, but I don’t know if this white spot fungus or mold will spread to other gardens or come back next year. What do you suggest?
A: Zinnia is often infected with powdery mildew. The best thing you can do is clean the garden, throw away the whole plant. You also need to remove the bottom straw to start the season clean. Pay attention next summer, and check back if necessary. Many new species of zinc are resistant to powdery mildew.
Q: My wife and I recently bought our first home. It had a beautiful flower bed. Since they are not florists, we asked the former owners how to care for the plants. A plant had to be cut down, which we did. The others did not need any trimming or other repairs, we were told. What we now believe are elephant ears, and some other plants still show no signs of life. I understand that they may be reading the weather better than we do, but I wonder if there is much that needs to be done. Can they help us by identifying the plants and suggesting any care or maintenance the plants need?
A: The main plants in the picture you sent are elephant ears, cannons and hostels. These are all permanent and should grow in the next two weeks. Growth levels vary depending on soil temperature. In South Arkansas last week, I was amazed at how early it was, it is not uncommon to see sprouting in colder areas in mid-April. Be patient for now. The plants that grow look like zenia – it looks like professional cherry and white zinc. These are summer annual and need to be replanted. I think you probably want to include some evergreen shrubs in your area so that your winter look is not too barren. You may need to reassemble some seeds to make way for the bushes, but this can be done this spring.
