Q: I have an allamanda and would like to know if I can transplant it now.
A: Since this is a cold sensitive plant, if you move it now, you will need to protect it if a freeze occurs. Otherwise, wait until spring to move it.
Q: I read that alfalfa tea is good to use on roses. Do you have a recipe to make it?

Q: My agapanthus have bloomed and are now making seed pods. Should these be left on or cut off?
A: If you intend to harvest the seed and plant them to get more agapanthus, then leave the pods. Remove the pods if seed is not wanted to help conserve plant energy.
