Ten Rules for Planting Trees

Since the approval of the Community Orchard, I have been spending time researching and planning how to start the process. We decided on a date to get our young trees into the ground, so to celebrate, I thought I would share with you ten rules for planting trees. Our plant date for the orchard is Saturday, April 11, at 1 p.m. if you are interested in helping get this community project started. You can call the Extension office at 620-793-1910 for more information. We hope to see you there!

Orchard announcement

When is the best time to plant a tree? The answer is "10 years ago." The second best time to plant a tree however, is today. Trees provide air for us to breathe, shade to help keep us cool, beauty for our eyes to glance upon, and fruit for us to eat. They are just beneficial to be around physically and emotionally. I have fond memories of helping my mom trim our trees, and more than once, seeing just how high I could climb in an old Catalpa tree before I lost my nerve!

Repotting Houseplants

Spring is just around the corner, and many people I know are experiencing cabin fever.

This will give them more room and allow them to be a healthier plant, and give you something to ...

This week's column starts the examination of what soil acidity is with following columns devoted to its effects on the soil as a plant ...
