Darrell Blackwelder: Lawn care and pumpkins

By Darrell Blackwelder
For the Salisbury Post
SALISBURY – The unseasonably cool weather caught most people off guard this week. With the change in temperature, homeowners want to be outdoors for fall cleanup and work outdoors. Many have called with various questions about lawns and gardens in which you may have an interest. Here are a few:
Q: A few weeks ago I over-seeded my lawn and now the grass seed is coming up nicely. When should I mow my newly emerging lawn?

Q: Is there still time for me to core aerate my lawn and plant grass seed now?

Q: My mother gave me an amaryllis bulb last Christmas and I have kept it over the holidays. I want to bring it indoors and make it bloom again if possible. What do I need to do to make my amaryllis re-bloom?
Q: I still have pumpkins in the garden. When is the best time to harvest?
