What's Coming Up 39: Shade trees, ash borer, invasive plants, wet areas

Read this Ensemble Edition

This page is Sponsored by:

Ash lost in a flash: Shade tree needed!

Wishing away emerald ash borer

Family's groundcover stretches a long way

Battle tactics for invasive perennials

Rain's a blessing, wet soil's a curse

Perennials for soggy places

Wrong rub on juniper and poison ivy

Cut back, shrubs come back from ground zero

One last weep over winterkill

Know the seedling to beat the biennial

Making faces over toads and steaming sod

Using newspaper to slug it out in the garden

Steven Speaks: The end of silent pictures?

Below: Garlic mustard seedling. In this issue, controlling this invasive biennial.
