Host Richard Hentschel discusses the fungal activity associated with all the rainfall, especially in the lawns. Hentschel cautions about not working in the vegetable garden so disease is not spread. The rains do have the benefit of keeping our over-seeding efforts in the lawn going strongly. Fall is also a good time for a needed broadleaved weed control effort.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
