Tips For the Home Gardener

Tip: Clear Away Tall Grasses and Weeds from around Trees Fruit trees, ornamental trees and shrubs can be attacked by four-legged critters. Removing bunches of tall grasses and weeds will eliminate the hiding places and habitat for rodents that will nibble on bark through the winter. Rabbits, gophers, meadow mice and voles can gnaw on bark tissue which will result in severe damage to the plants.
Tip: Remove Pine Sap Remove pine sap from tools using a light oil, such as WD40. Using rubbing alcohol, witch hazel, or vegetable oil to remove it from your skin.
