I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Your question is really many in one. Let me refer you to a few web sites for info on some of the topics you asked about. Then please submit additional questions to the Home Depot website and we can help more. It is best to just ask one question per submission so we can do a more complete job answering the question.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
