Ciscoe's Tips of the Week: Replace plants killed by winter cold

Ciscoe's Tips of the Week:

- Use undiluted vinegar or an organic natural lawn weed killer to kill broad-leaved weeds in lawns on a hot sunny day. Put a funnel on the end of the spray wand to concentrate the spray, and minimize grass kill. Wait a week, then poke holes and put grass seed in them. Apply organic lawn food to newly seeded areas and keep them moist. Grass should fill-in within 3 weeks.

- Replace plants that were killed by winter cold. Nurseries have incredible selections of fantastic perennials and trees and shrubs. Work the recommended amount of an All-Purpose Natural & organic fertilizer into the hole before planting.

Ciscoe's Tips of the Month for May

- Prune spring blooming shrubs as soon as the flowers fade, and add an organic all-purpose fertilizer.

- Mix in a handful of bone meal and a cup of organic vegetable food when you plant heat loving vegetables.

- Plant exciting new varieties of perennials, trees, shrubs, and annual flowers.
