BRBW May Chapter Meeting - Shared screen with speaker view
Kathy Sidles and Paul Gade
I added the native woodland plants I see in park woods on the east side of Saint Paul but the Black Currant I bought never has bees visiting that I ever see, and never has berries. I bought one plant at Outback 10 years ago and it has spread and looks great with lots of yellow flowers...but bees sniff it then leave, and they never have berries. I know they are male and female plants but wouldn't bees like both?
I love those bio hedges. How closely planted were the shrubs?
do dogwood or azalea grow here?
When I was looking at Wahoo, it was noted as poisonous. I have a lot of neighborhood cats.
We have a chokecherry that has developed two long leader branches near the top that I am concerned are going to break - is there a best way to trim these to prevent them from breaking off back to the trunk.
I have a Blue Beech tree planted over 5 years ago and is stunted, still about 5ft. should I move it?
Have a sunny spot near a swamp oak and near my rain garden. Suggestion for a shrub/shrubs to add more mid level plantings.
Could you suggest a small tree or bush for privacy, about 6-10 feet high.
Oh, also for part sun
Deer and rabbits really hit my young arborvitae. Even though they were sprayed with plantskydd. Can I wrap them in the winter. The deer are now in my yard at this moment.
How tall does the Regent serviceberry get, and wide? Does it have year-round interest?
Speaking of having plants that need a home. I have jack in the pulpits that need a home.
