Poirot Returns!

Tue, 07/22/2014 - 3:28pm -- WCVE

David Suchet (“Henry VIII,” “The Way We Live Now”) returns in his signature role as suave Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in two new mysteries, “The Big Four” and “Dead Man’s Folly,” based on the novels by Agatha Christie. Whether he’s on holiday abroad, taking a countryside break or simply going about his business near his central London home, Poirot finds himself exercising his “little grey cells” by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not.

Tips From Richard: Semi-hardwood Cuttings for Propagation

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 10:21am -- WCVE

Take cuttings from your azaleas and other woody ornamentals for propagation. By early July, the new growth has reached the semi-hardwood stage which is ideal for propagating cuttings. Clip four to six inches of new growth and dip the cut end in rooting hormone. Place the cutting in a small pot with a moist, well drained medium and cover with a clear plastic bag. Place the pot in the shade. Cuttings should root in four to six weeks.

Tips From Richard: Pinch Your Mums

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 9:52am -- WCVE

Pinch your mums one last time in early July. By pinching or clipping off the last inch or two of each stem you’ll force the plants to put out new growth further down on the stem. This will make plants thicker and they’ll still have time to set buds for great color this fall.

Be sure to read Richard’s weekly Garden Q & A in the Saturday Home Section of the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
