Why are leaves on my tomato plant turning yellow or brown? - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko The leaves on the bottom of my tomato plants are turning yellow, then brown. Don’t worry; it’s normal, says Jen Weber, vice president and manager of Mike Weber Greenhouses at 42 French Rd., West Seneca. “That’s what happens when the plant starts making tomatoes,” she said. “It’s better to have an ugly plant with lots of tomatoes than the other way around. By the end of summer, you should have a dead-looking tomato plant.” That’s what...

Overgrown backyard becomes relaxed space for entertaining - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

The front porch “is like another living room,” said Doug Lilley of Livingston St., Buffalo. “I love sitting out here. It’s peaceful.” When he bought this 150-year-old double seven years ago, the upstairs porch was rotting and needed to be replaced. An addition to the back of the house was rotten and Lilley had to lop off the entire addition. The backyard was so overgrown, it was hard to walk back there.

Not sure where to create garden bed? Try it out with containers - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko Our front lawn is big and open, so it used to be the place to play catch or soccer. Now that the kids are grown, I thought I’d use some of that space for growing plants other than grass. Since the front yard is a bit sunnier than the back, I especially wanted to try vegetables, which need some sun. The problem was that I wasn’t sure exactly where I wanted the new garden to be....

Gorgeous vegetable garden is focus of Lancaster landscape - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko In the past, people would hide their vegetable gardens in a back corner of the yard. That’s changing, and more and more people boldly display their veggies in garden beds among their ornamental plants. One problem is that vegetables often need even more protection from critters than ornamental plants do. Jane Bednarczyk protects her vegetable plants, and she does it in a way that’s not only attractive, it’s a focal point of the yard. Bednarczyk...

Winter bugs: how they get on indoor plants & what to do about it - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Steven Jakobi, Allegany County Master Gardener volunteer One of the hardest things for me when the weather turns cold is to let go of my annuals. I mean, these are my babies. I started them from seed early in the spring, nurtured them throughout the summer, saw them flower and fruit and then, with the first hard frost, I have to see them perish. To prevent their demise, I bring as many of them as I can into the...

Explore temperature in a 'weather garden' - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Stephen Vermette, Department of Geography & Planning, SUNY Buffalo State Last week I introduced you to a weather garden, which vividly demonstrates how sunlight, temperature, wind and rain affect plants in different ways. It does this through the choice of plants, as well as through fun and useful ornaments such as thermometers, wind vanes and rain gauges. Last week we looked at the element of sunlight. Today we will look at temperature. In a future issue, we will look...

Last-minute gardening tasks to prepare for winter in WNY - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

Here is a list of last-minute gardening tasks to do to prepare your garden. Put away your breakables. Anything that’s breakable, such as glass garden ornaments, ceramic bird baths or ceramic pots, should be brought inside. There is a chance that wind might topple some...

What perennials should you cut back in autumn & which add winter interest? - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

There are still lots of things you can do in the garden now. The Master Gardeners of Erie County have posted new articles in WNY Gardening Matters, including one on what to do in the garden in October. One of the tasks addressed was cutting back perennials. For winter interest, many gardeners like to leave rudbeckia, butterfly weed, mums, heuchera and grasses standing, said author Peggy Koppmann. But there are some perennials that just get ugly after frost and are...

How should you overwinter geraniums? - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko I got a question from a reader on how to overwinter geraniums: Last year I held over my geraniums in the basement in a covered cardboard box. I shook most of the dirt from the roots before putting them in the box. First of the year I started sprinkling them with water while they were still dormant in the box in the basement. Later I brought them upstairs and planted them in potting soil. When they started...

Create a wall of hydrangeas for a wedding or other special occasion - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko How would you like a wall of hydrangeas? This display intrigued me at the annual conference of GWA: The Association of Garden Communicators held right here in Buffalo from Friday to yesterday. At the trade show, this wall of blooms was used by Bailey Nurseries, a grower, to show off its brand of reblooming hydrangeas called Endless Summer hydrangeas.

Contrary to what many gardeners believe, fertilizing your annuals won’t cause them to “bloom out” or be done blooming before the summer is over, said Jen Weber, retail manager at Mike Weber Greenhouses, West Seneca. It’s just the opposite. “Petunias, verbena, and calibrachoa need fertilizer every time you water!” Weber said. “Yes, that is correct. Every time.” Geraniums need to be fertilized three times a week. Begonias, every other week. All other annual flowers need to be fertilized at… Container Gardening, Gardening Tips, West Seneca, Retail Manager, Million Bells, Gardening Magazines, Annual Flowers, Verbena, Begonia

You may need to fertilize annual flowers more than you think- but not veggies! - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko Contrary to what many gardeners believe, fertilizing your annuals won’t cause them to “bloom out” or be done blooming before the summer is over, said Jen Weber, retail manager at Mike Weber Greenhouses, 42 French Rd., West Seneca. “It’s just the opposite,” Weber said. “Without the fertilizer, your plants won’t reach their potential. They’ll be smaller, thinner, weaker, leggier-looking plants.” In the case of petunias, verbena and calibrachoa (million bells), they will…

What can you do to prevent birds from nesting in hanging baskets? - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

by Connie Oswald Stofko Here’s a question from a reader: Have you heard of any way to deter pesky little birds from nesting in my hanging planters? Carol Thibault of Elma We love birds visiting our gardens, but I can see where it would be a nuisance if birds nest in hanging baskets. When you try to water your plants, you disturb the birds, and if you don’t water, your plants will die. Plus, the nest may mess up the...
