My hellebore has an issue with its leaves, which is getting worse. There is another one just a few feet away which doesn’t have the issue. Doesn’t appear to be getting eaten, is it a fungus?
Our plum tree has strange growths on its leaves, see attached photos, what is this? And how do I treat it?

Hi, I attended the jams & jellies home canning evening course that OSU extension held last summer. Since it's been a few months, I have some questions regarding boiling water canning for jams: 1. Is there a way to substitute fruits in a given recipe? For example, I have black currants, but cannot find black currant recipes (there are plenty for red currants). Can they be used in place of blueberries? blackberries? In general, how does one determine substitutions safely, considering potential differences in acid level? 2. Is it safe to add things to jams before processing that may not be in the recipe? For example, adding dried hot chili flakes to a berry jam, or a couple drops of lavender or orange extract? Dried lavender flowers? Fresh lemon verbena or basil leaves? Citrus zest? Can you substitute lime juice for lemon juice? I remember the emphasis on following recipes precisely, but am not finding many variations (or don't know where to find trusted recipes besides Ball Blue Book, USDA and National Center for Home Food Preservation). 3. If a recipe calls for lemon juice, must it be the bottled lemon juice, or can it be fresh squeezed? Same for lime? Thanks so much! Beth
Why my rose petals have brown top? Why my rose bud are so small, tight and don't bloom? Thank you so much. Bee
Hello! My husband and I bought a duplex last fall and would love to make the lawn more beautiful, attract the good bugs, and build a rain garden or two. We are expecting our first child shortly, so we aren't ready to pull the trigger this summer, but would love to start planning for next summer. If a master gardener would be willing to look over plans and give advice, that would be amazing!
Wondering if you can identify what happened to our peach trees. They seem to be dying from the ground up, branch by branch. We planted them last summer, watered them faithfully, full sun most of the day (at least 6 to 8 hours). One died in the spring and the other is on it's way. The first sign is the leaves wilt and become droopy. They are contender peach trees. Attaching pictures. Thank you for your help in this matter!

I have had extremely healthy rhubarb here in Duluth for the last 30 yrs. It has flourished in a sunny spot. I was gone for a few days and found this on the leaves. Suggestions as to how to treat it? Thanks Julie Seelke

I will be removing my contorted red filbert (Red Majestic) as it has the filbert blight. What can I plant in that same location? Or, maybe the better question is, what shouldn't I plant in that same location? Thank you!
I had a client come in today with two samples from a huge bushy type tree that is growing in her yard. She had bought a tree bundle from a sale and it was in with those trees. It has grown massively in the year that it has been in her yard. We thought maybe Autumn Olive, but really don't think that is what it is. It seems to be quick growing. She would like to know what it is and how to get rid of it? Thank you for your time.
