    Just wanted to drop a note that I enjoy your blog & learning something just about every week. -Emma

    p.s. the “blog” links on leereich.com still direct to the old location (http://www.leereich.blogspot.com/), and the old location links to your home page (http://www.leereich.com/?bloggerURL=/.com/), not to this new location (leereich.com/blog). Took a bit to figure out how to actually get here. 🙂

    How do you get rid of crab grass. I have a lot of it and want to
    get rid of this grass
    Thank You

      Setting the mower high reduces crabgrass. Crabgrass is a warm season annual and its seed germination is reduced in higher mown grass. Applying corn gluten in spring may also help because it inhibits seed germination. I’s also a nitrogen fertilizer, about 7%.

    Just planted a Red Elf pyracantha. Should prunng happen now for wall growth or later?

      Most pruning is done in winter, after the coldest part is past. For an espalier (is that what you meant by “wall growth”), some pruning in summer can also be done. Late summer and fall are not good times to prune because plants might then be more susceptible to winter injury and infections.
