Ciscoe’s Tips of the Week:

Sow tomato seeds indoors under grow lights in seed starting soil. Keep the flats in a cool room, but use heating mats to keep soil between 70 and 90 degrees.

Sow lettuce directly into the garden. Work one cup of organic vegetable food and a 1/2 cup of bone meal into the soil for every 10 feet of row.

Weeds are coming up like wild banshees. Try to get them out before they go to seed and drive you crazy.

Ciscoe’s Tips of the month for March:

Prune roses and work in a mix of alfalfa meal and natural all-purpose fertilizer.

Apply alfalfa meal and organic fertilizer to get perennials off to a galloping start.

Rent a dethatching machine to remove moss from lawn before applying a moss control.
