Re: Breaking your PreM barrier question

I'd apply another application of pre em if I were you. Then in fall I'd really aerate heavy 3-4 passes crisscrossing. If you're compacted 1 round of aeration won't be a permanent fix plus its a big bonus when you do seed in the fall. Dealing with crabgrass sucks because it sticks out like a sore thu...

Anyone has a good recommendation to order online?
Not sure when they would be delivered(this year or next)but I ordered 20 dahlias from Brecks in December and started them in pots. 17 of 20 have started growing thus far.

https://i.postimg.cc/fW63C3Yy/20200419-191426.jpg Bought my first dahlias online from Brecks and a few from a local nursery. Started in pots to make sure they are going to grow. I have 25 and I'm only waiting on 4 more to pop. I'm excited for big fat blooms and vases for the wife. https://i.postimg...

Re: Where to buy flower seeds and bulbs?

I ordered a bunch of Dahlia tubers from brecks.com. I havent planted yet, but feeling the bag the tubers seem like they are huge compared to ones I bought in store locally

Re: Dahlias

I'm about to rip out several hydrageas, drift roses, and abelias that all grow too dang fast and get too big. I think I'll replace them all with different dalias variants, mixing height and color. So when's the best time to purchase online and start planting? It was 25° F last night, so maybe a bit...

Re: Dahlias

@Ecubed - I've gotten the bug too. Don't subscribe to any email lists... I've probably spent more on landscaping this year than the lawn. Same I bought quite a few flowers, but what I like most about Dhalias is that you get more and more year after year. They will make great gifts for friends and f...

If you can’t get seed to establish in those areas what makes you think sod will survive??? You successfully grew it in other areas, why did it fail in those isolated spots??
In hoping the sod would survive because it is more mature than a freshly germinated seedling.
