I would like to know what I could plant in my front yard that would be resistant to deer eating them? flowering and non flowering
I have a birch tree in my front yard and I am curious as to what kind it is. It is currently turning yellow. It is a rough brown bark. It only has one trunk. It is about 30-40 ft tall.
I want to know if it is too late to plant ANY clover for. BEES. Iam not interested in red clover, medium red clover or white clover or....you get the idea. Its for BEES, and whateve native pollinators are around in the spring. The area i will be planting is 1/2 acre near Middletown Delaware. It is an area where i had a garden 5 years ago and some K31 tall fescue has migrated into it. I have put down lime and disced it. The soil is well drained, somewhat sandy below 10 inches of topsoil. I have had very good luck growing a combination of winter rye grain and medium red clover there in the past but i now want to grow BEE CLOVER there. Early spring flowers is my goal. I will be planting other areas in the spring for pollinators, but can I plant Dixie Reseeding Crimson Clover or Hubam Sweet Clover or should I plant WINTER PEAS. I will probably plant Dutch White Clover lightly in the entire area because if all else fails it should survive along with the K31 TallFescue. I am familiar with innoculation. Am I too late in the year?
I have a Bur Oak tree that was planted in my yard this August. It is 2.5 inches in diameter. I noticed Friday that a deer had eaten some of the bark from the trunk. I did not notice sap coming from the tree. I have placed a barrier around the tree so the deer can no longer feed on it. What can I do to protect the health of this tree since some of the bark was removed?

I am researching the topic of having Extension offices for colleges for a research paper and I noticed you have quite a few. Could you tell me a little about how this concept began and how well it is working? My college is located in the inner city far away from my home. Thank you, Lee Ann
When should we cover the hostas and perennial flowers such as asiatic lillies? and what type and how much cover should be put over them? We lost poppies last year.. thanks
Is it safe to plant and grow tulip bulbs in a raised vegetable garden? I'm assuming narcissus would not be safe, but I wondered about growing tulips just to have a presence in the garden while waiting for it to be warm enough to set out vegetables. Thank you
I understand that pawpaw is hardy in zone 5, but it likes an acidic, well-drained soil and more rain than we get. Do you know of anyone successfully growing pawpaw in the Denver area or similar growing conditions?

My corn comes up alright but sometimes it has grey rot at the edge of the corn and stops growing at that point.
I want to add that I had my soil tested and I wonder if the fertilizer problem recommended would take care of the problem.
