Mary Wise,

Do you have any outdoor wall space. That is all it takes to go fresh herbs and smaller greens. Plant them in a plastic shoe holder that has pockets. You may want to punch a few small holes in rash on so that excess water will drain out and not mold.

Fill each pocket with potting soil and plant your herbs. Make sure to have it hang in a sunny area. Lightly fertilize according to package directions. Trim when they are ready for harvest. Enjoy.

I have a HUGE Scotch Broom that needs cutting back . I live in New Jersey at the shore how soon can I trim it? What is the BEST time?


I need to get to it before my husband hacks it to death, he complains it's blocking his view, No shrub ever looks the same when he gets done with them!
Help!
