I'm sure all you faithful customers were tuned in to Saturday's radio program on KNSS 1330 and didn't miss a thing that was discussed, but for those of you who were working out in their yard or doing the Race for the Cure we've decided to post some of the questions that were called in. In fact, we may just decide to do this weekly so stay tuned!

Q) Is now a good time to 'dead head' my mums?
A) If the blooms are past their prime you can go ahead and snip off the flower, but realize once this is done, they won't bloom again this year.

Q)Would it be a good time to give acid plant food to Hollies?
A)Yes, now's a great time! You can either use ferti-lome Tree & Shrub Food or Fox Farm for Acid Loving Plants!

Q)I've got a fescue lawn with bermuda grass that creeps in, how can I kill the bermuda?
A)This is a common problem in fescue lawns. The best products to use are Turflon Ester or Bayer Bermuda Grass Control.

Q)When do I plant new grass, and what can I use to control broadleaf and grassy weeds?
A)Now is the perfect time to plant new grass, we've got a great selection in the stores now.
Kill broadleaf weeds with ferti-lome Weed Free Zone after you've mowed the new grass twice, and use Baricade in the spring. You will also want to use ferti-lome All Seasons Crabgrass Preventer to prevent grassy weeds.

Q)I've got stickers in my yard, what can I use to control them?
A)A great product to use is Hi-Yield Turf & Ornamental Weed & Grass Stopper. This product provides a superior control of broadleaf weeds and annual grass weeds in established lawns and ornamental turf.

Q)I've just rebuilt a porch where wasps used to reside. If I paint the ceiling of the porch sky blue will it deter the wasps from building nests?
A)While we're not sure if wasps can actually see color, we would recommend using Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor Insecticide. You can spray the product using the Air-O-Matic Hose-On Sprayer around the perimeter of the porch to control unwanted pests. This product also helps control fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, caterpillars, cicadas to mention a few.

We hope you will find this information helpful! If you have questions please don't hesitate to ask us . Remember, if you've got a question, there are probably 10 other people wondering the same thing so don't hesitate to ask!
Also, tune in on Saturday Mornings from 8-9 a.m. for Johnson's Radio Show with Marty and Jeremy Johnson. They'll give great advice and answer questions callers call in with. You can call the show at 436-1330!
