What to plant beneath lilacs?

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Question by subra55118: What to plant beneath lilacs?
I live in Minnesota and have a huge lilac hedge in the backyeard. Problem is that nothing is growing underneath the bushes so it looks really barren and ugly. What can I plant beneath these plants and when do I plant? Need something fairly easy as I have no gardening experience. Also my yard is already pretty much full of hosta so I would prefer something else.

As far as i know, you shouldn’t really be feeding your Iguana any of those. Iguanas do need an entirely vegetable diet, though, but you need to be very very careful as to which foods you feed it and in what proportions. Iguanas need a Calcium to Phosphate ratio of about 2:1, with twice as much Calcium as Phosphate in their diet. You need to take this into consideration so as to avoid the development of Metabolic Bone Disease.

How can I get the deer to leave my landscaping plants alone?

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Question by attorneyinmichigan: How can I get the deer to leave my landscaping plants alone?
I USED to love deer, but now I want them all dead. I’ve tried every stinky spray known to man including pee, and it has not deterred the deer from eating my hosta and young apple trees. I am prevented from putting a fence up on my property by association rules. Aside from covering the plants with unsightly mesh, how can I keep these rats with legs away?

Well, you ‘ve fenced in the yard, why not fence in the hostas and etc.? Something with pointed tops, to discourage him from jumping over it. Plus, some discipline while you introduce him to the new addition.
Otherwise, keep him on a chain that is just a bit shorter than the placement of your plants.

Hosta question…?

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Question by Jessica F: Hosta question…?
Say you are selling Hostas, and what if someone asked you about the differences between: expensive vs. cheap cultivars.

List three thoughts on this(what would you tell that person).

Answer by ANGEL
The most expensive cultivars are more rare. There isn’t a large supply, so the price is higher than the others.

The newer cultivars are different in their appearance with newer markings or color variations. It’s exciting to be able to add to your collection a variety that’s remarkably different from all other Hostas.
