We have a 3 year old Minn, hardy redbud tree from Baily's nursery stock in a protected spot facing the south-southwest that has yet to bloom its red flowers. Instead, the branches start slowly directly leafing out. Could you tell us if this is a problem or the nature of this tree variety. Thanks.
Follow up to previous question - the tree in question is located directly adjacent to a stockade fence which has on the other side a large stand of 20' high bamboo, shoots of which have been found on our side of the fence and dug out, but still remain. Could that be the source of the problem? And how do we resolve the bamboo issue? Thanks
We have a large black cherry tree in our backyard (about 2+ feet in diameter 75' high), which has a large rotten area at the base (12-14" wide by 18" high). We like the tree and want to save it, but are worried that a strong nor'easter will topple it, landing on our deck and house. We live in southern Connecticut. There are a few dead branches up high, but most look very healthy.
I have three sources of moisture in my front yard that are located within the root zone for trees. The source of moisture are a sewer cleanout, a sump line, and a water meter. The sewer cleanout access is above the ground which means that the pipe for the sewer cleanout comes up through the root zone for plants and trees and is not below the root zone. What is the minimum distance I should plant a tree from my sewer cleanout? I also have other sources of moisture in my front yard. I have a sump line that empties out on the street and definitely is located within the root zone for plants and trees. There is also a water meter for my water line. The water meter is above ground with a pipe leading it that is within the root zone for plants and trees. What is the minimum distance I should plant a tree from my sump line and from my water meter?
All of this rain is killing my crabapple tree. Half of the leaves are turning brown. Is there anyway to save it?

What kind of foundation shrub will grow best on the West side of my house? I have evergreens there now and they seem to have trouble with winter burn.

I just discovered viburnum leaf beetle on a Chicago Luster this week. It is almost completely defoliated. The plant is 10'x10'. 20/30 years old. Hate to lose it. Any controls? Would Volk or any other oil work?
We live in Dover Delaware. A friend of ours gave us some tulip bulbs that they just dug-up. What do we do with them. Do we store them until the fall or do we plant them right away? In either event what is the best way to plant them (depth, and fertilizing requirements)? If we should wait until the fall when do we plant them & what is the best way to store them
