Q: I ordered a bleeding heart plant that was just starting to grow when it arrived. I potted it according to the directions. The soil I used was Jiffy Organic Seed Starting Mix, and I mixed in some Pennington All Purpose Plant Food 6-10-10.
Q: Is it too early to fertilize perennials and trees? Last year, we did some landscaping and used 10-10-10 and peat moss. We then covered everything with mulch. This spring, should we sprinkle 10-10-10 at the base of the plants or just use Miracle-Gro mixed with water?
Q: My Redmond linden still has leaves on it from last year. I planted the tree three to four years ago, but this is the first time it has done this. Will I have problems with the tree going into the spring or is this normal?
Q: In 2009, I planted some apple trees. I was told to paint the trunks so they wouldn’t burn in the sun. I painted them with an oil-based enamel paint. Now I heard that I should have used a water-based paint. Have I killed my trees?
Q: We received an arrangement of tulips when my mother-in-law passed away. What can I do with the bulbs? There are about seven flowers with the petals falling off. I would like to plant the flowers, but I am not sure what to do.
