  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.

    An old wooden half whiskey barrel is my usual potato plot. One year I went all out with container gardening. Pots with herbs and veggies lined the sunny sidewalk leading to our front door. That year I grew potatoes in empty sacks that once held organic compost.
