The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and most importantly the snow appears to be gone. As spring approaches, the first things you might notice are the lawns turning green and plants starting to peak through the soil. It is very important not to get in a hurry when working on your lawns, you want to make sure it’s not too wet and the soil temperatures are right for the best performance.

Hi Dee, How do I care for my new Pom Pom trees? (They are turning brown. Also, are they hearty enough to survive our winters? If so, how deep should I plant them and in what soil type? Thank you so much!
I have 2 astible’s that I planted in the same area. I water them the same and they are both under my deck and get morning sun. One gets a little more direct sun than the other. The one that gets more direct sun has brown curled leaves and the other is beautiful. Should I water the affected plant less? Thank you for your help!
I have had two Peris plants/bushes that have not done well at all. I understood that they need sun. I had them in full sun. Then I put them in partial sun and still one has died and the other is dying. I am in the Dayton, Ohio area that I believe is the 5 zone. Please help me.
