    ICYMI - Mega Drought and Extreme Temperatures

    11:47

    Extreme heat and drought discussions are blanketing the news headlines, from predictions of dangerous fire seasons in the western US, to reservoirs like Lake Mead falling to historically low levels and could trigger an official shortage declaration for the first time.In the Pacific Northwest, not only is this week scheduled to break more than 300 temperature records, the federal government is trying to preserve scarce water resources in the Klamath River Basin. They want to ensure the survival of fisheries necessary to tribal nations however farmers are calling on local irrigators to release the water, causing serious tensions in the area.What's possibly the most interesting is the fact that areas generally not affected by droughts, are experiencing extreme heat and undergoing water restrictions. All of this new impacts the green industry including agriculture, landscaping, tree care and horticulture. So with July being Smart Irrigation Month, we're dedicating this ICYMI episode to covering some of these stories, and more with Corona pro channel manager, Clayton Tharrington.ADDITIONAL ARTICLE RESOURCES & LINKSAnother dangerous fire season is looming in the Western U.S.Could America be Headed for Another Dust Bowl?Tensions rise in the Klamath Basin as feds further reduce water allotments to farmers.US West prepares for possible 1st water shortage declaration.Western U.S. may be entering its most severe drought in modern historyCalifornia facing drought crisis as water shortages mount and fire danger escalatesHermit Crab Pro - Jain IrrigationRootIRRIGATOR - Corona ToolsCONNECT WITH OUR GUESTClayton Tharrington on LinkedInCONNECT WITH USEnjoy this episode or have questions?

    Principles of Topiary and Espalier

    30:43

    Look in any high-end home design magazines, or visit lavish gardens and properties and you will no doubt, see skillfully manicured topiaries flanking each side or a stately entrance. As well as shapes like animals and geometric patterns that give any garden a formal look and feel. It's something that doesn't require a tremendous amount of skill to do but with the proper tools and plants, you too, can make your home entry look stately also.In addition to artistic topiaries, many home owners are lacking space in their yards to grow things like fruit trees. So an equally artistic form for fruit trees, is espalier. Shaping and training a tree to grow flat against a building or taking advantage of a small, norrow space in your yard. It's a practice that has been done for centuries and not only produces dramatic, sculpted trees, but also bears some incredible fruit.Joining me on this episode is Denise Schreiber, experienced and studied horticulturist and arborist who is a successful author and professional speaker. She shares a bit about both techniques, identify some ideal plants for each format, and what you'll need to know to be successful. She also references an excellent book on both forms from Longwood Gardens, available on Amazon. There is also a quick video from Monrovia showing topiary being done to inspire you on your next topiary project!Denise Schreiber aka "Mrs. Know It All" of The Organic Gardeners on KDKA radio in Pittsburgh, shares some insights on this fascinating topic. She has been featured in the Ask the Expert column and is a contributing editor, in the Pennsylvania Gardener Magazine. Denise is also a national speaker, ISA certified arborist and has literally written the book about edible flowers called "Eat Your Roses, Pansies and Lavender and 49 Other Delicious Flowers" available on Amazon.CONNECT WITH OUR GUESTDenise Schreiber - on Facebook  CONNECT WITH USEnjoy this episode or have questions?

    Since Covid first began and work from home became a part of everyday life, the US has seen a surge in new homeowners. Many have fled higher-priced areas with smaller spaces in search of larger homes with more space and property. For those who have moved into new homes, over 55% did work in their landscape. Whether to put in a new landscape from scratch, update an existing one or just adding a few touches to make it their own.When it comes to the workhorse of the landscape, the plants that balance the yard, provide year-round interest and texture, it's the "shrub" that brings it all together. For the new homeowner and existing landscapes alike, finding the right shrubs to reflect your design preference and color choices can be a pretty daunting task.So we've asked Stacey Hirvela, horticultural marketing expert for Proven Winners Color Choice Shrubs, what she thinks make the best shrubs for the new homeowner.
