April Showers Bring May Flowers...Or the saying goes! With the weather just turning, many of you will begin to find that you may have questions related to your yard or garden needs. "How do I transplant my irises?", "What is this bug?", "How do I get my yard back after all the winter kill?" or even "How deep should I plant my rose bush?" are common topics of conversations every spring. The Louisa County Extension Office is the place to help you answer those questions!
