Answer

Knock Out Roses are Easy

Question

Allen, I love roses, but I've always had a hard time growing them. Can you please recommend a variety that won't drive me crazy? And by the way, I love the color pink.

Answer

Well, Tessa, you are in luck. The Knock Out® Family of Roses has 3 pink varieties that I recommend you try – The Pink Knock Out® Rose, The Pink Double Knock Out® Rose and The Blush Knock Out® Rose. All 3 have the same carefree characteristics.

Roses in the Knock Out® Family are cold tolerant to zone 5, heat tolerant throughout the U.S., reliably resistant to disease and produce a bevy of blooms every 5 to 6 weeks from spring until the first hard frost.

  • The Knock Out® Family of Roses performs best when planted in full sun.
  • The soil should be well drained and fertile.
  • Plant the roses 4 feet apart to allow for room to grow and good air circulation.
  • Feed every bloom cycle with a fertilizer blended specifically for roses.

poultry problems

I want to raise chickens and ducks but I don\'t have a coop. I live on 40 acre farm in ND. I am deciding between 6+ breeds of ducks and chickens but cant decide they\'re all pretty good egg layers and docile. I want pure breeds and have to have to have them all. What should I do? Where should I order them? Please help.

Just another thought... the VC and the BK in my previous post are also nearly identical.

Targeting Just the Weed

If you want to use the synthetic weed killer close to good plants, try making a bottomless box out of an old cardboard one. Mark the outside of the box as such before you start spraying. Then place the box over the offending plant and spray... just it. Trick is to match the size of the box to the size of the weed you want to kill. But boxes are easy to come by, so you can make more than one. Had to do this to target some Bush Killer that came too close in my yard, and it did protect. Getting rid of the BK, however... well... :(

I love this piece of music! It is so calming and just right for all those who love gardens. It actually describes my 94 year old mom who still likes to get out and work around in her garden! Thank you for giving us this lovely piece (peace) of music on each show.
