Hello, I grow juglans nigra from nuts sewn in pots. At the end of the first season I plant out and cut the sapling down to the base. The thinking is it produces a stronger straighter tree. Is this merely heretical European backwardness? Its your tree,what's your position please. Although I'm an amateur l raise many sorts of tree for pro bona distribution, thanking you in anticipation, Steve storey

New Bumblebee Nest

We have a new (this late Spring and Summer) Bumblebee nest under our tool shed. These bees have a distinctive yellow "Y" shape on their head. I don't ever recall seeing this type of Bumblebee before. Any idea what kind based on my vague description?

Hi, Thank you! We have several ornamental Dwarf choke cherry trees. They did not blossom this year. Several dead branches which we pruned and burned. Now leaves are turning yellow and falling off. Do not see any obvious bugs like borers. Do not see any fungus like black knot. Perhaps another fungus? Ideas , thoughts, and recommendations appreciated. Thankyou

Maple tree with curling leaves

Some leaves holey but no signs of insects on leaves. However, leaves are severely curled, especially further down on branch. Fed tree with spikes last fall. Bought house last year and it had these signs then as well.

I have basil plants that have little black dots on the underside of the leaves. At first we thought it was dirt that had splashed up when we watered. But then we noticed that the topside of the leaf was yellowing. The leaves will continue to blacken underneath and yellow on top and then fall off. We have 2 plants in a pot on the back porch and more plants out in the vegetable garden which is about 125 ft away. Both locations have the same spots. I am guessing these dots are little bugs that are sucking the life out of the leaves. HELP~ what do I do? Thanks!

I have 2 upright Japanese Yew shrubs that are about 20 years old. This past winter they turned brown/orange and have not shown much improvement so far this summer. This same thing happened several years ago, but not as severe and the yews returned to normal. I would estimate now they are 90-95% brown/orange. Do you think there is any hope for them or should we remove them? Thank you for your help.

This spring my 2 Crimson Pygmy Barberry have leafed out to approximately one-third up the bottom but not all the way to the end of the branches. The tops look dead, however, when I cut near the area where the leaves stop, the inside of the branch looks healthy (kind of a green/yellow color). I'm wondering if I should just leave them as they are for the summer and see what they do next spring. I hesitate to trim off all of the leafless parts. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Please see the 3 attached pictures. I've been fighting this weed in my lawn for 10 years. I've used RoundUp and a product called Ornemec. RoundUp kills everything and leaves a bald spot in your lawn. It takes months to reseed and get that spot looking like the rest of your lawn. Ornemec turns all of the grass around the weed golden brown and it stays that way for a couple of months. With both products the weed still comes back. I've been told that it's bermudagrass, but I need to know for sure what it is in order to know how to treat it. To me it doesn't look like the pictures of bermudagrass that I see online. I would appreciate any help that you can give.
