Back on the Radio

On March 22, 2007 I will end my winter hiatus/hibernation and return to the airwaves at WAMC Northeast Public Radio 90.3. FM in the greater Albany, NY area. Susan Arbetter and I will be at the microphones at 2 p.m. that day taking your calls. WAMC has a large listening area from Albany north to Burlington, Vermont, west to Utica, NY, east to Springfield, Mass, and south to Newburgh NY and southeast to Hartford, CT. Also, if you can't listen live, you can always listen online or in a pod cast the station does. www.wamc.org.
Hope to hear from you!

I have been searching for internet to find an answer, but no luck. I wonder if you could provide some insights. I planted a semi dwarf nectarine tree 10 days ago. It doesn't not bear any leaves so far, and no sign of grow, I cannot tell it is dea or not. At the same time, I planted a cherry, it grow pretty well with a lot of leaves. Do you think it is normal that the nectarine tree has no leaves in this time of year. I live in Sacramento, we have a nice spring now, temprature is between 50 F to 82 F. I'd like to knwo if it is dead, so I can buy a new one and replant it. Thank you for your attention.

I'm a very new gardener who wants to grow cut flowers all summer long. Our garden plot receives full sun for less than 3 hrs a day. Any suggestions for some foolproof varieties I might try?
Thanks very much.

Great to hear you back on the radio.

I just noticed that the deer knocked down one of my innumerable fences and the rhododendron has no leaves at all. Is this likely to survive? Should I do anything other than feeding it with an acid fertilizer?

I am in need of help! I want to plant quite a few lilies and I live in the Queensbury area on Glen Lake. My problem is all of the chipmonks. They love the lily bulbs and will even cut the stems off at ground level. Tiger lilies grow fine. I want to put an infusion of lots of color with different lilies. What to do about the critters so they won't eat the bulbs as their snack? Thanks in advance Hope

Glad to hear you again-WAMC internet radio. My husband and I have moved permanently to north central Florida, but I like to "hear" about the snow and ice in upstate NY.
I have never been a good gardener, but we have so many creatures just waiting to grab what I have before me. I planted a salad garden last spring in a square foot type raised plot and harvested 5 sugar peas and 1 leaf of lettuce. The animals I have seen are squirrels, armadillos and rabbits in addition to alot of birds. Do you have any suggestions?

I don't know if you'll get this message more than once! I tried signing on several times. Thanks for the info on Betty Corning clematis. I read about this being one of the best and couldn't find where to buy it. Enjoyed the show immensely--really looking forward to this growing season! So glad to have heard your program.

If your garden receives only three hours of sun each day, it is best if you plant a shade loving garden. Here is an article on my Web site that gives you some great tips.

If the deer have eaten all the leaves off the rhododendron, the plant will still recover if you can keep the deer away from it in the future. Rhodies like to have plenty of compost spread under them to keep their roots cool and to keep any grass or weeds away. .

so glad to hear that you can listen to the WAMC on the Internet. It sounds like you need to build a fence to keep the critters away. Armadillos, huh? Better contact your Florida cooperative extension office for that one.
