Are Brussels sprouts not just little baby cabbages?

anyone have experience with planting arborvitae?

i've read i should space them 3-4 feet apart and wait til it's cooler out to plant them

and they like slightly acidic soil

they seem like they might be a little temperamental ... some people seem to growl when i mention them

My wife planted 6 of them in the backyard along the back fence. The neighbor on that fence is crazy about his lawn, trying to get it to look like a fairway. So he’s out there all the Time day or night watering, trimming, using home brewed fertilizers(?). The arbor vitae’s are still alive despite the onslaught of water (since it drains to our yard and then to the sewer at bottom of our backyard). We figure these lived because they were planted before their house was built

But my wife complains because she’s tried to fill this empty space twice with arbor vitae and they don’t make it because of the water logged ground. But the spacing like you mentioned above is key and not so much water

We planted a willow about five years ago when we moved into our house. A twig basically less than 4 feet tall.

Now it’s 30 feet tall and 20 feet wide

We did the same. I've come to hate that tree. Mowing under it is a bitch.

You have to be careful of Willow roots. They really spread out and can damage concrete as well as underground pipes

thanks for the arborvitae feedback

i dont think excessive water will be an issue for me... but def will be some hot and dry summer months i will need to get out there and water during

i like willows but am looking for an evergreen

i've also seen a lot of willows break due to wind here after big storms

but i like them

I grew up with chickens ... can’t think of a dirtier animal and they attract rats.

I agree chickens are filthy. I built housing for 300 layers, and know a fair bit. What do you want to know?
