Home & Garden

  • Delight in gardening
    A couple a summers ago, James and Lynda Moore got a call from a local Do-it Best hardware store.
  • Putting unused spaces to work
    Many of us have one room in the house that doesn’t really have a job.
  • Garlic chives fit for gardens
    Is it a weed or a garden plant? Garlic chives are among those plants – paulownia tree, Jerusalem artichoke, mint and anise hyssop are others – that can parade under either guise.

Tending to daffodils

Tying and braiding daffodil foliage will reduce the energy the leaves put into restoring and increasing bulbs for next year. A hoop of green string will tidy a splayed clump. Long-established daffodils that are weak bloomers should be lifted, divided and replanted in a sunny and well-drained location in full sun or partial shade. Do this in about a month’s time as the leaves fade.
