Q&A: Transplanting Black Eyed Susans

Question: We have some Black Eyed Susans that my wife would like to transplant, they are about ready to bloom, when is a good time to transplant them? Is now ok, before they bloom, or wait until after they are done flowering.

Answer: It would be better to wait until late August or early September -- after they have bloomed -- to move them, but if you don't mind losing or delaying the blooms you could also do it now. Trim them back and take as large a rootball as possible if you move them now, and keep them well watered until they become reestablished. If you move them in September you could also divide them at the same time.

Q&A: Growing Grapevines for Wreaths

Question: I would like to grow concord grapes, both for their fruit and also to use the vines for making wreaths. What growing conditions do the grapes need, and when do you cut the vines for using in wreaths? I don't want to mess up my fruit by cutting the vines off at the wrong time!

Answer: Grapes grow best in full sun in a spot with good air circulation and well drained, slightly acid soil of at least average fertility. Since grapes develop only on the current year's growth, the vines are usually pruned back very hard in mid to late winter. This provides plenty of vine for wreath making and other projects. (The vine is also leafless at that time which is good because removing the leaves by hand is tedious.) Whether or not you use the vines for projects, do remove all prunings from the growing area to help reduce any chances of carrying over pests or diseases from one year to the next.

Q&A: Deadheading Clematis

Question: I just moved into a new home with a lovely clematis. It is blooming beautifully. Should I plan to deadhead it once the flowers fade?

Answer: It is not necessary to deadhead clematis--which is fortunate because deadheading a mature plant would be a huge task! Many gardeners find the seed heads decorative during the fall and winter months, too. Enjoy your plant!

Tip: Harvest Pole and Bush Beans Daily

Don't let the pods get larger around than you little finger or the plant will move into a slowdown phase. Once the plant begins to develop seeds, it has finished its life cycle and will stop producing. Besides, the beans are at their most tender before they produce seeds.

Tip: Protect Yourself from Insect Pests

Protect yourself from summer's insect pests and the diseases they transmit. Use repellents and wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants. Check yourself and your children for ticks. Although the likelihood of getting an insect-borne illness is low, it still makes sense to take precautions.
