My dad always wore Lagerfeld - sentimental to me but I think it’s good.
That’s an interesting one. Never heard of it. Funny how you can remember cologne/perfume smells from younger days and it triggers a memory.

What’s Your Favorite Cologne?

I’m thinking about asking for a new cologne for Father’s Day. Need some ideas. I’ve had Polo Black but never the Green (original). Any ideas welcome! Hopefully something under say $60.

Re: Replacing Bradford Pear

Your plan sounds good to me. We have neighbors that hand a couple. They’re not winter or harsh weather hardy and a mild windstorm took half of one out.

I planted 3 Cleveland Pears and like them. Haven’t had any branches down or real issues in nearly ten years.

Re: My roses are dying :(

What about deers which bite off all new growth, and introduces fungus/infection, killing the plant slowly? I used it over my larger burning bushes and had no issues. We don’t get many deer though but have had a few. Of course, burning bushes are hard to kill as the rabbits ate them down to almost n...

Re: My roses are dying :(

That sucks. I lose 2-3 roses per year to something. Usually cold or rabbits. I figure it is an opportunity to try something new. I wrap mine in the winter with bird netting for animal damage. Good luck so far. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004RA0O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&ps...

Re: Eley Hose Reel Review

Looks great pennstater2005 ! I agree, it sounds like the recommendation has to do with the supplied lead hose length. Thanks! It's too close to the window. It's in the front of the house. I'll probably move it down or over someday. It is sweet though. Looks great @pennstater2005! I agree, it sounds...

Re: Eley Hose Reel Review

Question......I'm mounting the reel in a perpendicular fashion. It states in the directions to not put more than 5' from the hose bibb. However, I am hoping to put it a bit further away and use the 12' lead in hose for sale on their website. Would that be ok or is there a particular reason. I'm gues...

Re: Allelopathic Grass

I've always liked this from morpheusPA (from another forum) From Morpheus: Allelopathy tends to happen more with mature ryegrass and KBG seedlings, so overseeding bluegrass into a thick ryegrass lawn would be futile. The seedlings sprout, but die before they can mature. I've read two arguments on th...

I keep reading that as beer instead of bees and was honestly worried.

Re: Starter Fertiliser

Nitrogen will leach thru the soil and not be useful. Phosphorous is not that mobile in the soil profile. If you are low, do apply it. Also, if you joined the lawn forum in 2017, you should have a soil test by now. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Funny thing is I had my wife run out to the Penn State extens...

Re: Starter Fertiliser

As @Kaba noted you don’t have to walk on it and starter fertilizer is used to stimulate root development. It's used to stimulate root development if taken up by the plant from the ground. Given that bare un-germinated seeds have no way to take up nutrients from the ground, that benefit is null. And...

It can be used at seed down as well. What's the benefit of throwing down fertilizer at the same time as seeding? As Kaba noted you don’t have to walk on it and starter fertilizer is used to stimulate root development. Do I need it at seed down. Maybe not. I’ve never done a soil test and may have go...
