cabbage seeds, norfolk island pine care, and wild raspberries
I have three unrelated questions for you guys. 1: I am starting my seeds right now. I want to start my broccoli, cauliflower, and collard seeds in the same flat, but I've heard that they can cross. Is this something that I need to worry about at this stage? Also, how far apart should I put them in the garden so it doesn't happen? 2. My neighbors gave me a norfolk island pine to watch while they are out of town. It came to me in sore shape, because someone else had been watching it a few months and neglecting it. Many of the needles were graying, and despite the fact that I have been keeping it moist, many branches have died off. I want to save it!! It was in a south facing window but now in my house it is in a room with west and north facing windows. i know that they don't like to be moved, but there wasn't much we could do about it. I'm thinking of fertilizing it but i don't know with what. any ideas on what to do? 3. We have wild black raspberries on our property. The first year, we burned them and mowed them down. Well, that only made them happy, and they produced greatly that year. The next year, we didn't do anything and we barely got any berries. Does anyone know what to do with them to make sure they have a good yield? Thank you!!!
