Drip Irrigation Basics

Drip Irrigation Basics

Work and social media have been inundated with folks that have irrigation issues. Most of these problems are coming from drip systems and I think it is high time for me to write about it. [...]

Should I Replant a Fruit Tree in the Spot Where the Previous One Died?

Should I Replant a Fruit Tree in the Spot Where the Previous One Died?

A common statement I hear when I ask folks where they are putting a fruit tree is, “I want to put it where the one that died was.” This always gives me a shutter for a couple of reasons. The most important reason is that some plants just don’t do well where their close kin have been planted recently. This is known as “specific replant disease” and it affects apples, roses, peaches, cherries, pears, plums, and a number of other crops in the rose family. [...]

Irrigation for Pest Control

Irrigation for Pest Control

I have been getting a lot of questions lately on summer plant health issues. Often, after a few descriptions of the problem I have an important question: How are you watering? In some cases the plant is wilting and it is clearly not getting enough water into the tissues, but in others the damage looks like it is insect or disease that is causing the problems. But if you go a bit deeper you may find that the obvious pest damage is actually only a symptom of a deeper problem. [...]

Topsoil Problems

Topsoil Problems

Too often I hear folks say, “I shouldn’t be having problems, I added topsoil.” While it sure sounds good to have added topsoil, it is not always a good thing and it is almost always a crapshoot when it comes to knowing what quality you’re getting when you purchase topsoil. Let’s look a little more into this.[...]

Do Your Part to Prevent Wildfires this Summer

Do Your Part to Prevent Wildfires this Summer

Here in Utah we are well into the hottest, driest time of the year. This also means fire season for much of the western United States. As I write this, the biggest fire in the nation is also in Utah and was started by the use of a weed burner. [...]

Design Terror!

Design Terror!

I have worked with a lot of clients in the last month that are absolutely terrified of designing gardens. I understand this because it represents a lot of money and commitment for the client and many of them have almost no experience in the area. While there is no easy way to get past this fear, there are some things you can do to make it a little bit better.[...]

The Most Likely Reason Your Plants are Dying

The Most Likely Reason Your Plants are Dying

I get calls at the nursery about brown dying plants all the time. While I love helping people and want them to have happy plants I am reluctant to replace them because most of the time the conversations goes something like this: [...]

So, What Did You Call That Plant Again?

So, What Did You Call That Plant Again?

Categorize and name things – it’s what we humans do. One of the best examples of this can be found with the plants we share our world with. It can be complex and detailed like the scientific binomial naming or it can be as simple as a family calling a plant a name that only they use. But there are some very useful names and categories that everyone can benefit from learning. [...]

More Tidbits about the Tree Buying Business

More Tidbits about the Tree Buying Business

Tree buying can be one of the most painful parts of putting together a landscape or garden. But it is much easier to get the rest of the job together when the trees are in place to give you the bones for the rest of the design. Here are a few more tips that can make a tree buying excursion easier.[...]

How to Pick a Quality Tree at the Nursery

How to Pick a Quality Tree at the Nursery

With my day job at a nursery, I find that many people who buy trees for the first time know very little about choosing a tree or getting it planted. This is not surprising, after all, since we have all been beginners in our first few visits to a nursery. Some common motivations for picking the tree often have more to do with unrealistic expectations than any understanding of how the tree will be in five or ten years. Here are some points to think about before you go:[...]
