I planted 8 gold flame spireas 30 years ago and they are getting a little spindley. I’ve never pruned them or cut them back. Would cutting them back to 4-6 inches be advised now? Tx Peter

Hi some pine trees in my yard that have Rhizosphaera. We just moved into this home. They allow privacy. I was planning on spraying them with Mancozeb and Neem this spring. The lower branches are very sparse devoid of needles. Are there any evergreens that I can plant close to them that won’t be affected by the needle cast, allowing some more privacy to the home. I can eventually removed the diseased pines if the new evergreens can be planted close by and get a chance to grow bigger. Thanks for your help!

Hi, We have three Doug Firs about 20 feet and 5 feet from each other. Two of them must be at least near 100 feet high. We would like to make a sitting area of pavers and pea gravel between them to enjoy sitting under these beautiful trees. Will this be a problem for the trees, e.g. causing a problem for the roots underneath? Thank you!

Hi- Could you please tell me what this insect is? It sort of looks like a box elder bug, but not quite. Thanks for your help.

Can you ID this plant?
My two crepe myrtles get fully loaded with flowers, but never totally unfurl completely. They are fairly mature, have been in the ground at least 15 years and are about 8-9 feet tall. Probably half the blossoms do unfurl, the rest just languish and dry up. I have tried watering them more and putting Miracle Grown on them. I also sprinkle coffee grounds on the soil. I think that has helped somewhat. I want to see them in their full glory this year. Any suggestions?

When I attempted to burn some dead grass around my yews a couple of the bushes burnt back to the trunk, the branches seem to be still alive but absolutely no needles. Can I trim back to the trunk or near the trunk and have them regenerate (resurrection)? I also several of the other yews are very overgrown and am considering pulling out but if I can cut them back and have them regenerate I would prefer to do that. So how severely can I trim my yews?

Where can I get my soil tested? How much does it cost? Can someone explain the results and implications?
