Magnolia question

Hello I have a question about my Magnolia and after reading this note, if you could direct to proper person to answer my question I would greatly appreciate it. I live in Plymouth MN and have had a beautiful Magnolia tree for about 10 years. It flowers every year and even some in the summer. This fall the leaves turned brown like they do but have not fallen off the tree. Strong winds do not seem to disturb the leaves and I am a bit concerned that they are not dropping. We had a concrete brick wall built about 15 feet from the tree and with that, they were cutting the cement block with a saw creating much dust in the air. I am a bit concerned that the concrete dust could have done something to the tree preventing the leaves from falling. Do you have any ideas or suggestions or should I not be concerned. Thank you for your time Kathy Severson 3825 Minnesota Lane No Plymouth MN 55446 612-670-7169

Help with Snail Problem

About 3 years ago I started to notice a snail or two either in one of my planters out front or sticking to the siding on my house. I don't think I'd ever seen one before here in Tigard until recently, or in the other towns I've lived in here in the Willamette Valley: Wilsonville and Canby. I buy my flowering plants from local nurseries, so I'm guessing that's where the snails came from. Now of course there are more, big and small and I am wondering if this is a relatively new invasive species in this area, and if I should try to eradicate them the same ways I go after slugs. Help please! Thank you. Ruth Bollen

I’m concerned that my aloe shoots are too heavy as they are not growing upward like other aloe plants I’ve seen do. Should I be concerned? Currently, I have sticks holding up the heavy stems as seen in the third pic. Is this harmful or helpful? I know it looks tacky but not sure what: if anything needs to be done. Thank you

Is there something wrong with this tree?

I'm not sure what kind of tree this is but it is driving my husband nuts. If it isn't shedding needles, it sheds these pods all over our drive-way. My husband is constantly blowing the drive-way because he says if the pods get ground up in the asphalt it is hard to get the stain out. It seems like it is shedding pods more often than it used to. We have lived here for 11 years and the tree is part of our landscape but my husband wants to cut it down now because he is so sick of the needles/pods. He knows I would be upset so he hasn't. Could there possibly be anything wrong with the tree to make it shed more than it used to? Is there anything we can do to help with the health of the tree? Thank you for your help!

Pruning hydrangeas

I have had a hydrangea for over 30 years. It has never bloomed, and I now understand that it is because I cut it down every winter :) I believe it is a lace hydrangea. It is in the very front of my house, so I will consider leaving it up this year, but I will see how bad it looks. Meanwhile, there are many branches that are sprawling on the ground. What do I do about that? Also, will the dead leaves fall off? Any suggestions to make it look better? Can I shorten it?

Aspen Trees

After some recent grading on our property half a dozen small aspen trees ended up with about 2 to 3 feet of earth piled around their trunks. I've read that this could be bad for some trees but cannot find anything definitive with regard to the impact on aspens. Should I unearth my aspen trees? Thanks for any insight.

Sick Guinea Hen

The other day I noticed one my young guinea hens had puffy eyelids and wasn't as active as the rest of the flock. She was hatched this year and usually very active running all around the place but now she just sits on the fence all day. I haven't seen her drink anything and she hardly eats. I don't know what's wrong with her and I don't know how to help her. She keeps her neck close to her body with her feathers fluffed up. What should I do to help her?

What should I use to clean our floorboards in-between the first and second floors of our home where a large beehive with lots of honey and wax has been removed! We realize we must get the wax smell out of the floor. The bees left about 2 months ago. Incredible sight when we opened up the floorboards and found honeycomb!

Hi, My name is Adam and I am a 7th grader doing a science project on water filtration. I am testing a commercial instant sip filtration type product with tap water with a homemade water filter. Can you provide any coliform bacteria kits to test drinking water safety? Or do you sell them at a good price. I am in Columbus, Ohio so my mom or dad could come pick them up at an office there at campus. Thank you very much. Please respond on my parents email below.

Herb garden problems

Hello! I am trying to grow cilantro, basil, sage, parsley, and thyme in my apartment. The basil is doing fine. But the rest of them are looking a little sad. The cilantro and parsley are drooping and brown at the place where the stems enter the soil. The sage was doing fine until I came home this evening to find it dropping. The plants are in 5 separate small pots and get morning sunlight (as much as possible with Minnesota weather). What am I doing wrong? Thank you! Asha

urban 4-h clubs

Hello, my Name is Adele Macatee. I am a freshman at Cecil college. I am writing an essay in my college English class on problems within my community. I have chosen 4-h as the community that I am apart of, and for this essay I must research a problem within the 4-h community and state solutions to said problem. The problem that I chose was that there isn't enough agricultural science or 4-h opportunities available to youth within cities. I chose this because I figured they don't have all of the resources or land availability to do some of the activities or programs that we could do within Cecil county and other more rural areas. I myself am in a Cecil county based 4-h club and so I know the types of things that we do would be difficult to do in the cities. I was curious if you know of any places where I could find information on the lack of 4-h involvement within cities? if so feel free to respond back to me, thank you.

Choosing indoor plant lights

Hello, I'm looking at plant lights online and see many options, some only 10 watts but with good reviews, and others at 1500 watts. I'm wondering what I need for starting seeds (maybe a few flats of them) and possibly for giving a boost to houseplants that aren't doing so well, like African Violets and a small jasmine I've brought in for the winter, or for culinary herbs. Thank you! Catherine
