Host Richard Hentschel discusses more on the recent rains and impacts on root systems with our annuals and newly planted perennials. Fruit development in the garden is also changing quickly with all the moisture. Vine crops produce their fruits in just a few days. These rains are also pushing our lawns along and can be longer than we want before we can get it mowed. Crabgrass has been a problem with the water as well.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
