Birch tree

I have a birch tree that has rusty black on the trunk. The leaves look like something is wrong. I have a couple hostas that have rust spots also. There is a birch tree about 20’ from this one that doesn’t appear to have any of this on it.

Plant identification

Hi, I am trying to identify two tress planted in my front yard. We bought the house 2 years ago and they were newly planted at that time but have been growing vigorously. I fear they are the wrong tree in the wrong place and will get too large. I think I may need to try to dig them up and transplant them if they are a variety that will continue to grow. I have had to trim them back a bit as they are encroaching on the entry steps and touching the house. Besides the identification is the transplantation a reasonable thing to do or would they likely not survive that? Thank you!

Saw dust in soil

I recently had a very large pine tree removed from a garden area in the front of my house. I then had the stump ground. It is not possible to separate the saw dust and bits of pine tree from the soil. I do not have a year or two to wait to plant in this area. What can I add to the soil to get Spring bulbs to grow & bloom?

Is it possible to have a vegetable garden without using compost or manure?

Hello,

My name is Heather, and my husband and I are semi-retired homeowners here in Lakewood. Our food budget is tight, and we'd love to start a small vegetable garden! Like everyone around here, we've got clay soil. Here's my question: Is it possible to have a vegetable garden - or any type of horticulture, for that matter - without improving the soil through the use of leaves, plant matter, manure, or compost?
Our budget is especially tight this year due to COVID, and we can't afford to buy soil amendments by the bag from big box stores.

Alternatively, are there any lists of vegetables that grow well in our Colorado clay soil? Any information is appreciated. Thank you so much!
