In her commentary this week, WCQS gardening expert Alison Arnold takes us through some of the common problems we see in our gardens this time of year.
Q (Jeremy): It’s June and while it’s still early in the growing season many landscape plants have grown enough for us to know whether they are healthy or not.. what type of problems are you seeing or commonly see in the garden at this time?
As we do on many Thursdays, I checked in with our gardening expert Alison Arnold.
Q: You were talking earlier that it’s usually November when people notice their holly trees don't have berries but that now is the time to look into why this might be happening…. Tell me more about that?
A: Yes and we are talking about the native American holly and yes.. so when the question comes up about why a holly doesn’t have berries its important to rule out the most obvious question - is the plant flowering at all?
