I have too many perennial flower beds to do all the dividing and cleaning in the Spring. I live in zone 6B and it is still mild here. How much can I do in the Fall? The dirt is surprisingly dry after rain from two hurricanes recently. OK to dig up and transplant iris and other Spring bloomers now?
I have a large area of my lot that is erroading into a river. What is an inexpensive way to hold back the dirt? If using plants which type will keep snakes away? We have copperheads and rattlesnakes! Thank you for any advice you can give me.
I live in an old small house with very few electric outlets - all in full use - just got a big winter freeze (surprise) here in usually warm Big Bend country in Far West Texas- I have one bedroom and am using my one space heater in there, with door shut - my new adopted doggie loves to roam around house - hates seeing bedroom closed -not sure if I buy another space heater will I blow a fuse or something (no wall heaters- just AC) - or just unplug one of the few 3 prong outlets to plug in another space heater? right now I have my stove turned on to Bake and with stove door partly open. And my trusty hot water bottle in bed! Thoughts? thank you, Gwynne Jamieson, Alpine TX, 4300 ft high temp now 32 F. 9:40 AM CT.
