I have been told to prune roses just above the second set of a five leaf cluster. Does this apply to Knock Out roses as well? Thank you jag3

Can I put Alkanet on my compost heap ?

Posted: 04/04/2014 at 01:48

I live on Cape Cod Massachusetts USA. I get the impression that alkanet is an invasive weed to be avoided at all costs. I googled it but could not see a reference for such a weed. Please elaborate. Thank you, jagdoran

I'm no Sherlock Holmes but I live on a cul-de-sac with one neighbor who is definately not a suspect. The puzzling fact is the lack of tree damage unless it was a professional picker but I did check the soil surrounding the tree for any kind of tracks and there were none.

Three years ago we went away for a weekend. When I returned my dwarf macintosh apple tree was stripped of over 50 apples ripe'n ready. No leaf damage. No deer tracks. No apples on the ground. And no apples taken from an adjacent macoun apple tree which was not quite as ready as the macs. Now I too am cursed with squirrels but in my experience, they are not very neat and would have left some half eaten apples near the tree as they have with my elberta peaches. It has been a mystery all these years for me and I would welcome any other suggestions. Terrible apple crop this year maybe due to the unseasonably early spring we had here in New England. I possibly didn't get the insect spray going early enough. Thanks, Jag3

Unfortunately, I don't get back from Fl. until mid-April when it already has a good start. We spend all kinds of money on seeds which barely last a season in the envelope yet these pests seem to last in the ground multiple years. Go figure. Thanks folks, Jag3

I have been dealing with this prolific weed for about six years now. I arrived home from Fl. two days ago and and have spent all my waking hours on hands and knees hand picking to the tune of five (5) large plastic bags full. For those of you familiar with the beast, you need no further description. None of the chemical companies I have contacted will not touch this one with a ten foot pole. There seems to be no control once it gets introduced to your landscape. I have tried pre-emergence chemicals all to no avail. Anyone? Thanks ,Jag3
