Making It Grow

Making It Grow 10-15-2013

The 20th Anniversary Special - Making it Grow! with host Amanda McNulty. We not only celebrate the 20th anniversary of Making It Grow!, but the 100th anniversary of the Clemson Extension.

Teresa Young, natural resources agent from Florence, S.C., joins us in the Facebook chat room to answer questions online. Dr. John Nelson has a mystery plant that will numb your mouth if you chew on it and tastes a lot like an orange peel. Guests on this episode include Morgan Judy, Clemson Extension agent and Tony Melton, Clemson Extension agent. The feature segment is a montage of 20 years of Making It Grow! that you don't want to miss!


Tune in to the on-demand show for some of the live questions.

1. I have some azaleas and forsythias that I would like to move. Is this the time to do it?

2. I have some Conferederate roses and I'm wondering when and how far should I cut them back.

3. I have a sago palm. Every spring and summer, it gradually produces new fronds. This year, it did not happen. Why?

4. I just got back from a two-week vacation and found a multitude of mushrooms starting to grow in my Japanese shade garden. I never had that happen before.

5. When do I plant my garlic bulbs and how deep?

6. I have a native geranium and I want to move it. Any advice?

7. We had a 30 year-old Bradford pear. We have taken it down to a stump. How long do we need to wait to re-landscape this area?

8. When is the best time to move roses and hydrangeas?

9. There are black spots on my tomato plant leaves. Are the tomatoes safe to eat?
