May Market is a Pittsburgh tradition, there's something for every gardener.

May Market is a Pittsburgh tradition, there’s something for every gardener.

I’ll be appearing at May Market from 12 noon until 3 p.m. Friday May 8th and Saturday May 9th, 2015. May Market is held at Phipps Conservatory and Botanic Gardens and is a place to get just about anything you could possibly want for the garden.
I’ll be in the tent near the outdoor garden answering garden questions and signing books.
May Market is an important tradition in Pittsburgh and one thing you must have when you go there are the strawberries dipped in fondant from Rockledge Garden Club.
Here are all the details on vendors and events, I can’t wait!

    How do you take care of a dogwood tree? Is there certain fertilizer that you can use and when should you use it. My dogwood is blooming right now, but it is only a couple of years old, it’s a small one. Can you help me, I want to keep it going as long as I can.

    Hollytone is the fertilizer I recommend for dogwoods. They are shallow rooted, so just scratch it in under the drip line.

    Keep the tree mulched, but not up against the bark and make sure it gets watered when things dry out.

    Hope that helps,
