weed management

Do you have any suggestions about weed management in lawns driveways and veggie/flower gardens. I am an older gardener and cannot bend down to remove each weed. Some one suggested vinegar. Do you have any ideas to kill the weed but not the earth. Thank you. Sheila

Identify Plant/Weed

Hi, We've noticed this plant/weed on our farm for many years. It normally grows in our creek beds and where an old ice pond use to be years ago. It looks a bit like lettuce. It's now invading our horse fields and we need to rid ourselves of it in this area. Can you identify the plant/weed in question and offer any solution to treatments to remove/kill this plant? I believe it took over in this particular field because of the nearby stream. Thank you Delina Howard Richfield Farms Phoenix MD Baltimore Cty

Oystershell scale on aspen trees

Aspen tree trunks and branches have what appears to be oystershell scale (looked on internet to ID). The trees are in our yard as ornamentals, are about 8 years old and up to 25' tall. What is the best control method at this time of year? The trees are just barely starting to bud at this time. Can send pictures if necessary.

Lilac blooms

Hi I have lilac bushes in my side yard. They were planted in 2013. They bloomed beautifully the first two years. Now they hardly bloom at all. I read it may be too much fertilizer. So I haven’t fertilized them. And have added bone meal. What can I do to help them bloom again? One of my favorite fragrances is lilac.

Japanese Beetle larvae extermination

I want to get rid of the larvae I assume are creating deal grass in my yard as well as the regular occurrence of Beetles on my grape vines. I also have small animals in the yard and want to avoid any toxic materials. I also have read that this is the time of year to administer something to the lawn to prevent the beetles from hatching later in the summer. Can you advise on any safe products to get rid of the larvae?
