At High Hand University this week, we present Part 2 of “Waking Up Your Yard”.

Scott sings the praises of Kurapia. Professor Farmer Fred discusses snail control products that are safe around kids and pets…and those that aren’t. Fred also cajoles Scott into talking about the beautiful late winter blooming plants that lined the stage as well as offering his own advice on how to keep a thriving winter daphne alive: ignore it.
