This azalea plant(Karen variety?, August 11, 2014, 3 ft diameter and 28 inches tall) is several years old on the southwest side of house but under Maple tree shade. Deer have not found it as much as others!! It is off color most of the time. Is this insect damage - I have more photos of parts of the plant. I have tried to fertilizer it with both organic Holly Tone and chemical fertilizers. I have sprayed it at times and it can look more damaged at times. I can try for more sunlight. I just do not know where to start to improve it. Another plant has improved elsewhere with sun and fertilizer(?). Deer have killed others by browsing. Are coffee grounds good for it? You can see some on the ground. What additional information do you need? I need to watch for spring flowers; I do not think the deer have been eating the buds on this one but maybe.

Pepper plant (August 11, 2014) in raised bed at rear of home but in best sun I have. Plant had one pepper on it when purchased and planted in late May due to travel. The plant did not produce more fruit for a long time but late in season did give me 3 -4 peppers. Three more photos to follow when I can send them. Leaves showed strange curling. Only issue may have been kitchen sink wash and rinse waters I used to water garden that may have had too much Dawn soap in it??? Any suggestions on cause of leaf damage and slow production?

Where are they?

My home has been heavily infested by the stink bugs over the past few years. It is now November 4, 2014, and despite some of the chilly weather we have had, I have seen only a handful . . . a dozen or so. I live in Allegheny County (suburb of Sewickley (15143) and in heavily wooded property).

I have heard that last winter might lessen them this year, but I don't know if this is true.

Still, in years past, I have had an infestation in early October.

Am I getting a reprieve? What do you think? Please advise, and thank you.

I would like to root a cutting from A China Doll houseplant. I cut near the bottom of the stem and made an angle cut and put it into a cup of water. It seems to be taking some time. Is this normal? it has been a week or ten days. Any suggestions on how to root or grow this plant? Thank you! Sincerely, Mary Juba 651-437-8074

Soil Test (#AZ6CZ7) Report for Neil Parkin - Side Lawn (crop: Lawn New)

Pardon me if this has been sent twice. I cannot get your page to send correctly. Please see the above referenced soil sample test. I have added new top soil and starter fertilizer to the area shown in the picture. Then planted Scotts Commercial mix which is a blend of 4 tall fescue's. The grass took very well and got to about 3 or 4 inches tall. Within a month or so the new grass (which has been used in other portions of my yard that have a lot of shade planted on just sand) would no longer stand upright but began to droop over. Now the area is completely bare of grass once again. This is one of 3 or 4 areas of my yard under beach trees that have grown grass fine since my yard was put in 13 years ago but are bare now. I have 3 other pictures I would like to send you but I can only get one picture to upload at this time with this correspondence.
