Ciscoe's Tips of the Week: Replace plants killed by winter coldMay 23, 2013 @ 1:29 pm (Updated: 1:38 pm - 5/23/13 )
- 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.
