Re: Hi I'm A Newbie with a ??

Hello, Holli,

Welcome to the group! This is a terrific place to learn more about gardening, get your questions answered (or at least get pointed in the right direction), or just for friendly talk among gardening enthusiasts. I'm sure you'll like it here.

Re: Your poison ivy problem. My dad deals with this on his mini-farm a lot. He's *very* susceptible to poison ivy, so before he goes out with his Vine-X and gloves, he puts a special poison ivy blocking cream on his skin. I'm sorry, I don't know the name, but there are at least a couple of these creams/lotions on the market. Then he showers right away when he finishes the project, getting rid of the cream and any irritants from the plant.

Hope this helps,

Subject: [CHAT] Hi I'm A Newbie with a ??

HI I'm Holli, a really good friend Donna, had told me about this great
gardening group, so I decided to join up! Havent had the greatest garden this
year, but it was passable. I was disappointed this year, but the bees seem to
enjoy it! LOL
Anyway I have a question.. I am loaded with POISON IVY, in the back yard
and so is the family in the house behind me. She did have someone do removal
tonight and then they were going to spray something in the grown so it wont
come back next year.
Is there a safe way to remove it ... it really is in a bad area..it's by the
pond and continues across the back of the yard and entwined in all my pine
trees. And of course I have a dog.

Any suggestions?
Thank You
Holli LI,NY
