  • Conifer Madness
    Thirty five to forty percent of my service calls deal with trees, and the vast majority of those calls consist of evergreens that often do not live up to their name.
  • Ash Tree Replacement
    Emerald Ash Borer is creeping its way up to Blue Earth County. When your ash dies, what do you plant?

  • What Makes a Plant False?
    Whether it is Solomon's seal or false Solomon's seal, we must remember that plants, even the “false” ones, play an important role in their native habitat.
  • Solarization in the Garden
    Solarization is where transparent plastic (2 to 6 mil) covers a garden bed and uses trapped heat to kill weed seedlings (and some diseases). Common in southern states, more temperate areas such as Maine, Indiana, and Minnesota have found some use in this process and are continuing to explore how to make it more effective.
  • Oats: A Domesticated Weed
    In their day, oats were not a weed suppressor, but a weed. Before agriculture as we know it, wild grasses such as oats (Avena sp.), wheat (Triticum sp.), and barley (Hordeum sp.) often grew in the same area and were occasionally munched on by the earliest humans. Over time, people selected barley and wheat for domestication, leaving oats in the dust until fairly recently.
