frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

> For additional info see Resources Page

  • “Why aren’t my Hydrangeas blooming?” Large leaved Hydrangea macrophylla (traditional blue flowers) generally bloom on last summer's growth, therefore if last years growth is removed (pruned) or killed by a frost then the plant may not flower.
    • Solutions: Wait until Hydrangeas begin to produce new growth in spring, then remove the dead flowers and growth from previous year, careful so as not to remove the emerging flowers buds.
    • Protect Hydrangeas from winter cold by mounding (covering) them in leaves or other mulch to insulate.
    • Select re-blooming Hydrangeas (Endless Summer Series) or other varieties, which bloom on new growth such as ‘Annabelle’ and paniculata.
  • "When should I prune my Hydrangeas?" Best to prune Hydrangeas promptly after they flower in summer. Another option is to prune up to one third of the plant to the desired shape and size anytime during the growing season. The pruned areas may not flower next year but two thirds of the plant will flower. Additional info at: http://www.usna.usda.gov
  • "When is the best time to prune my boxood?" Early spring is the best time for major pruning just prior to new growth. Renovation pruning or thinning of growth can be done from early spring until about May. Lighter pruning and shaping can be done through mid September.
  • "When is the best time to grow grass from seed?" Late August until early October.
  • "When is sod a better solution than grass seed?" Sod is the best solution for your new lawn in spring, summer or after mid-October. Sod can be safely planted as late as December as long as ground is not frozen. In spring weeds will likely out compete grass seed, that's why sod is better choice in spring.
  • "Why can't I grow grass?" If experiencing difficulty growing grass in certain areas (too shady, too steep a slope, high traffic area, pets, etc.) consider alternatives such as ground-covers, perennials, ornamental grasses (Pachysandra, Vinca, Liriope, Ferns, Hellebores, etc.), stepping-stones, paving stones or decorative gravel (pea stone).
  • "My yard is too shady to grow grass?" Trees can be thinned and or removed to bring in more light. A shade grass seed can be planted. Mow grass less frequently, allowing to grow taller. Another option is too create a garden with shade loving plants; Hostas, Ferns, Hellebores, Moss, plus shade loving shrubs and trees.
  • "What should I do with my leaves in fall?" Best to mulch (shred) leaves with lawn mower. Repeatedly mowing till leaves are a fine particle, leave fine debris on the lawn. These fine particles are ideal fertilizer and compost for a healthy beautiful lawn! Fine leaf debris quickly dissipates into lawn.
  • "When is the best time to plant perennials?" Perennials are best planted in spring after frost free date (May 15 in greater New York City area) and again in September well before the ground freezes.
  • "When is the best time to plant trees?" Best times to plant trees is generally anytime the ground is not frozen. Early spring through June is favorable, beginning again in late August through about November.
    • Deciduous shrubs can also be planted nearly anytime; spring and fall are best.
    • Evergreen shrubs are best planted in spring and again in September well before frost.
 New Tree Planting Information

New Tree Planting Information

  • "When should I prune my roses?" Roses are generally best pruned in early spring (March); remove dead growth, thin out allowing for future growth and shape as appropriate.
  • "How should I prune my roses?" When removing dead flowers from rose bushes in summer prune back to a group of five leaves (not three), this is where new flower buds generally emerge.
  • "What plants are low maintenance?" Native plants tend to be lower maintenance as they are adapted to our local conditions and resistant or tolerant of local insects and disease. Drought tolerant plants are also lower maintenance.
  • "What are suitable evergreen foundation plants which will not become overgrown quickly?" Hybrid Boxwood such as 'Green Velvet' and 'Winter Gem'. These are also deer resistant. Japanese Holly (Ilex crenata) is also a variety which retains a nice mounded shape thus requiring minimal pruning.
