Yes Joan, the diatomaceous earth works the best. Any Pool supply place will have it by the bucket. Don't waste your time on the small garden isle. I also use it around my bee hives for hive beetles.

Elizabeth, you could try something like Escar-Go(made from apples)

which is sprinkled around the base of the affected plants. Other ideas are diatomaceous earth, or crushed egg shells. Cuts up their squishy bodies.

After writing the previous, I drove home in falling snow but it's still above freezing here.  Need to finish garden clean-up. Thank goodness for my helper.

Hi Joan, no frost here yet also in upstate ny zone 5b...but I'll bet it's coming soon.

Been absent for a while but still gardening up here in VT. We actually haven't had a hard frost yet. Can you believe? It has been a particularly spectacular autumn for color this year. Still some to enjoy-azaleas, Norway maples, Japanese maples and yellowing hostas.

Wiegela, Forsythia, and Hydrageas are a favorite perennials..Butterfly bush and Calla Lily's.

can anyone help me about SLUGS on my Day Lily's, I've never had them on anything before what do I do? Is it because of all the rain?

the Peony's and Lupines are gorgeous ,my red Peony had one bloom on it this year and my white one that was Mother's was just loaded with huge white blooms.

We replanted a Red Dogwood in the front yard, the directions told us to water well until roots are established,How do I know when that is?                                                                                               In the storms we've had lately one of my Asparagus Ferns got turned over and a long stem broke off ,I cut it in half ,sraped the stem and put it in Root Tone and stuck it in some rich soil to try and root it. i had done the same thing to a piece we broke off of our Wedding Cake Hydrangea when we planted it.I used the same procedure of scraping off the stem applying Root Tone and placed in rich soil it has been over 2 weeks since I did that to the Hydrangea cutting and it seems to be taking hold it's still nice and green.My beautiful Orange Gerber Daisy got flipped upside down by the wind I don't know if I can salvage him or not but will try to ,I also had a succulent basket get flipped upside down and I need to try to resore it the best I can ,maybe put it in a heavier pot. just wanted to say what's going on here,sorry to blab so long.
