I have raspberry plants that have grown to where they will be bearing this summer. And wouldn't you know it, we are moving. I want to dig them up just before we move, say in middle to late February. Can I put them in the same type of packaging they came in when purchased and then plant them in the spring when the ground thaws. Will they still bear fruit this year?

It depends. You did not mention what variety of raspberries you have. Some raspberries are June bearing, which means the canes that produce raspberries overwinter. Everbearing produce two crops in one year and so they canes are pruned differently. So whether or not they will bear fruit depends on what variety you have. Also after transplanting, it may be too much shock, and plant energy will be directed to reestablishing roots and growing new canes. Fruit depends on the plant getting enough energy through photosynthesis through the leaves, so fruit will not produce unless the plant is also healthy. I'm sending you two USU references that may help you.

- I am looking for a native grass, or a grass that behaves as a native, does not need irrigated once established, does not need mowed, for a hill in a St.George back yard.

Do you have any suggestions?
- I have a son that lives in west Eagle Mt. We Put in sod for a lawn about two years ago and for two seasons it did great. Half of it is now dead and the other half is struggling. Prior to putting down sod, the ground was thoroughly tilled and lots of compost material was added (the kind that is made available in some green recycling yards and mixed with treated effluent from the sewage treatment plant.) Nitrogen was also added to the soil and the lawn was watered regularly. What has happened and what can I do to get a good lawn here?
