Repeated freezing and thawing last winter was hard on lawns in Ohio—and the damage may only now be apparent. CFAES scientists Todd Hicks and Joe Rimelspach have tips to help bring back the green.
It’s time to have “the talk” about plants. CFAES’ Secrest Arboretum in Wooster hosts a workshop called “How Plants Mate” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Thursday, May 23.
CFAES’ Secrest Arboretum has never had its own visitor center before—until now. Here’s your chance to check it out.
“More people are asking for information regarding organic lawn care,” says CFAES’ “Natural Organic Lawn Care” fact sheet, which aims to answer any questions you may have about mowing, fertilizing, weeds, pests, and more. It even offers a spring-to-fall calendar of what you should do and when. Check it out. (Photo: Getty Images.)
Get a jump on planting this spring with help from CFAES’ two arboretums—and by doing so you can help them in turn.
You’ll find trees, shrubs, and more to buy and experts to answer your questions. Proceeds help support the two facilities.
