Yard and Garden:
AMES, Iowa - With spring here, it’s time to think about planting in home gardens. In Iowa, onions are a popular garden product, but they do require some special conditions and care to get optimal results.
Here are some tips from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach horticulturists on onion cultivar varieties and the proper way to plant them. To have additional questions answered, contact the ISU Hortline at 515-294-3108 or email@example.com.
AMES, Iowa – When temperatures are cold outside, it’s the perfect time to plan spring plantings. Include butterfly weed, a pretty, low maintenance perennial, in those plans to add significant beauty and value to a lawn. For maximum growth and beauty, specific growing procedures should be followed.
AMES, Iowa — Raspberries, a favorite of many home garderners, are relatively easy to grow, and are hardy and productive in most of Iowa. If given proper care, a 100-foot-long row of red raspberries can produce 100 to 150 pints of fruit. Proper pruning increases berry numbers and size, and is required to obtain maximum yields.
Horticulturists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offer tips on the proper way to prune raspberries. To have additional questions answered, contact the ISU Hortline at 515-294-3108 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
