Hi Robert- could you add your question to the Q&A?
Laura B Vogel
50:07
Birdsfoot Trefoil https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/invasives/terrestrialplants/herbaceous/birdsfoottrefoil.html
Pete Moe
53:32
Robert - I think the cardboard will kill most everything by next spring and should not take another full year
Genevieve Gagnon
53:33
How long you wait between after round up? It’s illegal in Canada we can still use it here?
katherine SF
54:37
I'm surprised the use of roundup is even mentioned as an option. Stuff is toxic and should be taken off the market.
Genevieve Gagnon
54:46
I know
Pete Moe
54:51
Read the Round-Up label and it must list lawns and will state how long to wait before seeding or planting
Laura B Vogel
56:08
Ways to Get Flowers In Your Turf 1) overseed into existing turf, 2) scalp the grass then overseed, 3) remove grass, seed fine fescue and flower into bare soil 4) scalp the grass and aerate, overseed with fine fescue and flowers,
Laura B Vogel
58:15
Hi Elaine- do you have a place you like to get seed?
Genevieve Gagnon
59:00
Still needs mowing?? Sorry I came in late
Pete Moe
01:00:35
Limited mowing makes the bee lawn look more acceptable to neighbors, keeps grass from shading flowers and is better for lawn sports etc
Genevieve Gagnon
01:00:51
great
Laura B Vogel
01:02:49
Best treatments- scalping your turf (mow really low), then overseeding… OR scalping and aerating (perforating the soil) then overseeding
Genevieve Gagnon
01:03:47
And pets..
Genevieve Gagnon
01:04:26

Thank you Laura

Just a comment, smaller bees and flys seem to love our black eyed susens
Laura B Vogel
01:10:17
Love seeing the chat- a reminder if you'd like to share a message with your fellow attendees select the option "all panelists and attendees"
Pete Moe
01:14:03
Red clover is a much coarser and larger plant and normally dies out with lawn mowing. It grows in many lawn areas at the Arboretum that we mow high and only a few times per year
Zoe Anderson
01:15:38
Honey bees around us use the Bird bath to get a drink, the day I took it down they acted very confused. A water source may be a thing to consider.
Pete Moe
01:15:53
The presentation will be on the website later
Genevieve Gagnon
01:16:21
Yes I see them in my bird bath too

Apparently vinegar will kill weeds
Laura B Vogel
01:30:03
Vinegar is tricky- to be effective it has to be a high concentration that makes it less safe than you'd think
Zoe Anderson
01:30:33
Good to know!
Laura B Vogel
01:30:33
Extension Yard and Garden is a good source of solid information on what to use for weed removal.... more so than social media.
Genevieve Gagnon
