Sep 11th, 2017 at 07:09 PM Weeping Cherry Tree really weeping Posted By chazbo
We planted this weeping cherry tree in the spring and it did very well at first. However, once the japanese beetles came; they devoured much of the foliage until we got rid of them with Sevin and the beetle bags. The second picture shows that the foliage still has not recovered (didn't really grow back). We are hoping that it will generate new foliage in the spring. However, recently we noticed a lot of sap (first picture) is dripping from the tree and even collecting on the ground. I don't know if there is a wound underneath but clearly something happened to damage it. Should I try to clean the sap off and then try to put something over the wound? As usual, any info or suggestions that anyone can provide will be deeply appreciated

Hello all!

My lawn started out beautiful this yer but has now developed these brown spots throughout! I suspect that it may be a fungus because f the fairly well spring that we have had. Can anyone suggest how to eliminate this?

Thanks in advance!

Apr 14th, 2017 at 01:13 AM How deep to plant? Posted By topthumb
I am going to plant a variety of tomatoes this year and am reading on the stickers too plant them 2/3 into the dirt. I have a couple questions, first is that 2/3rds including the the root that is already there or just from the top of the dirt 2/3rds up? Second, do I cut off all the leaves/shoots that will be buried when planting that deep or leave everything on the plant? Only reason I'm asking the second question is because I've always thought you were not suppose to let the leaves touch the dirt for fear of mold or disease. BTW, most of the plants will be Early girls, Mr. stripeys, and Medfords and maybe one cherry 100.

Apr 3rd, 2017 at 04:19 PM Can someone identify this pest? Posted By Jan H
Hi all,

I was given a mixed plant arrangement, and separated them out into pots. It's been so long since I had house plants I'm going to have to i.d. them, pretty sure the one with pests is an arrowhead plant. The little creature are on the underside of the leaves, haven't seen them in the other plants yet. . I did a google search for common arrowhead plant pests, but couldn't find anything quite like them.

the leaf in the photos (underside) is maybe 3 inches long, so you can tell they are pretty tiny.

Thanks for any info, looking forward to getting into house plants again and enjoying the forum here!

Mar 17th, 2017 at 10:29 AM Raccoons destroyed my garden Posted By Andrea123
Hi folks, I have a garden in front of my house. I love gardening and I spend most of the time planting vegetables and herbs. I used to maintain it well. I have a separate section dedicated only for flowers. But a week back an incident took place and I felt really sad. My garden was fully messed up, I somehow managed to bring it back to its original state. That time I didn’t take it seriously. But yesterday again there was holes dug and plants destroyed. My guess is that it’s a raccoons job as we live in an area where there are quite a few of them. My husband told me to call a raccoon removal services from toronto. Is there any other way of getting rid of these raccoons? Please chime in with some useful suggestions.

Feb 13th, 2017 at 12:15 PM Making a creative landscape Posted By jovinnah
Howdy, I have a large backyard which is in bad shape from the past so many years. I would like to give it a new look. My friend suggested going for a water feature like a pond or fountain as it would suit my house background. I saw a blog suggesting some methods of renovation for your backyard. [ ]. As I haven’t done this before, I would like to get your suggestions on creative designs and ideas. It would be of great help if you can suggest me some reasonable designers who can help me out. Thanks in advance.

The designs showcased below have been created by using river stones carefully categorized into colors and sizes. You can only imagine the amount of work invested into such a grand design.

Dec 23rd, 2016 at 11:03 AM Transplanting my rose Posted By AliciaJoh
I got rose saplings from my friend, she is a good gardener, she has a large variety of flowers in her garden. She makes flower bouquet and sells to the neighborhoods and she has regular customers. Last month, she gave me a rose sapling when I visited her. The sapling is 1-month-old, it is 2 cm now. But my friend told that it will grow minimum 5cm within a month. I have followed the procedures she told me about planting and followed up all the procedures. I don't understand why my plant is growing slow. She is using a garden bed, I wonder whether it might be the reason for the fast growth. I even read an article saying that it can produce more yields. I am thinking about transplanting my rose plant onto a garden bed. Hope that it might give better results. Little worried about the transplantation, how can I transplant the rose safely? Need your suggestions.
