Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Iowa Gardener's discussion White Yarrow in the group Wildflowers
"There are a few different white yarrows, but I think most of them are aggressive.  I have one that looks like tall baby's breath (gorgeous as a filler), but is a thug. I pull most of it out, as soon as it shows, and it still fills in well."

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Crazy2day's discussion Looking for spectacular flowering trees/shrubs for zone 4 in the group Zone 4
"I agree with Julie. I love spireas. They're hard as nail, and come in dozens of sizes/colors, from old bridal wreath to ground covers. Anthony Waterer and Goldflame are two that have done well for me."

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Lynne Roark's discussion What's blooming in July? in the group Zone 4
"Lynn, I often buy my plants at end of season specials ( I think it's the best time to plant perennials, and they're the cheapest, then). Last year, I bought an "assorted lily mix" for a terrific price and tossed in some late…"

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Lyn Adams, zone4-5's discussion Whats your favorite garden tool?? in the group Zone 4
"I love my hori hori knife. It's a trowel that's serrated on one side, sharpened on the other, has measurements down the blade. Makes it easy to plant small perennials in my hard clay soil, and cut small roots (which I have loads of, with 3…"

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Lee Weiler Z6/Ohio's discussion Hostas not thriving in the group Woodland gardening
"What a beautiful woodland garden. I'm sorry to hear of your hostas. What zone are you in? I've lost hostas to a spring thaw, a heavy rain, then a freeze. The roots were just mush."

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Sally Smith z4's discussion May Apples (Podophyllum peltatum) in the group Woodland gardening
"I love May Apples, but I don't have the patience for them. I've read it takes 4-5 years for them to start spreading. Otoh, my wild ginger is doing great after a few years....politely multiplying under a huge maple."

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Sally Smith z4's discussion Helleborus hardy in zone 4? in the group Zone 4
"I love my hellebores. It took awhile for them to become established, but now, after a few years, they've spread and bloom wonderfully. They are in a sheltered spot, and seem to like it dry. I think h. niger are the ones that are hardy here. H.…"

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Laura Ricketts Z7a/MD's discussion Moving Perennials -Dianthus in the group Perennials
"My husband tells me he knows the difference between annuals and perennials..."perennials are the ones you keep moving!" Usually, flowers that bloom in the spring are best moved in the fall. Ones that bloom in fall are best moved in…"

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to barb nelson's discussion squirrel control help in the group Zone 4
"Liquid Fence is pretty safe...it's mostly rotten eggs (smells terrible until it dries), but your dogs might love it! I have more problems with rabbits than squirrels. Last year I used Plantskyyd (it's dried cow's blood you mix with…"

Kathy Smigleski Z4 replied to Kim Overbeck's discussion Zone 4 shade vine in the group Perennials
"There are a few clematis that bloom in shade....Sweet Autumn and Nelly Moser are two that come to mind. Virginia creeper is a fast grower for shade, and I think the hops vine does well there too."
