I planted a small plant in spring. It only has two long stalks. Do I trim it to produce more limbs? It produced flowers. Strange.

I want to plant a flowering dogwood to replace a very old silver maple that was dug up last year. When they cut the tree down & cut up the root, I saw all kinds of lines under there & became quite concerned. I have had Ms Utility come out & show any interfering lines in a 10 ft linear path [because it must be in that area] & the only thing they show are gas lines which they say are 36" below. My question is: Can I safely plant a small flowering dogwood there? If so, can the hole by 18-24" deep if needed? And last, I live in 21222 - is there a retailer selling flowering dogwoods anywhere in this area or the nearest? Any/all help is appreciated. Please reply. THank you.

Hi! I have a steep hill in my front yard that is mostly sunlight. I would like to replace the grass with something else. In Kentucky I saw a house with their front hill covered in ivy. Would this work in Minnesota? What kind of ivy would be best and how would I start doing this? Where could I buy ivy? Thank you, Ana
A community garden is considering using raw or untreated water for irrigation to save money. It is not reclaimed water from a wastewater plant but just water that hasn't been through the drinking water process yet. Does anyone know if this is legal or advisable, or if there are any concerns about using nonpotable water? The garden has a drip irrigation system and does have potable water for rinsing the produce. Thanks!
Hello Do you know of an organic drench that may be effective on the azalea lace bug? Due to the size, location, etc. of our infected plants, spraying the underside of the leaves is simply not feasible. Thanks

I am a nursery grower in Burnet County. I have people asking me for Hazelnut trees maybe twice a month. My gut feeling is that we don't have enough chilling hours in this area. Can you tell me if they will grow here. I have read that they are native to parts of north Texas.

Hello! We are doing some site changes here at Country Campground just south of Detroit Lake. We have some 18 y/o ash trees that are down in an area where we would like to fill in to bring up the grade of that area. I've read so much information online regarding things that can stress & kill a tree. We definitely do not want to lose these trees and would like some advice on what we should not do with our landscaping. We are kind of in a time crunch to complete these sites to get them seeded also.
At this time, we have fill dirt approx 7-10 deep within the dripline...but only on half of the the original dirt. We are thinking of building treated 4x4 boxes around the base of the tree 3 ft square to keep as much of the deep fill dirt away from the bark as possible...and considering adding mulch inside for appearance and safety as to not leave a hole to step into.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Todd Mitchell :-) 701-330-5678 countrycampground.org

We live on a small acreage in Warren County. During the last storm, last week, we discovered that we lost a very large Oak Tree. When approaching the Oak to cut it up, (because it damaged a fence), we discovered that the whole tree was infested by honey bees. We were able to cut the tree and the bees did not disturb us. However, there are many of them and large honeycombs are present. What should we do about this?

I live about two miles east of the coast in Bandon. I'd like to know if it is too late to plant onions by seed this fall since the weather is so mild.
My soil test, E29765, reports my Calcium as 3026 ppm, my pH as 7.7, my Lime index of 0 & my magnesium of 232 ppm. Is 3026 ppm of calcium too much, not enough or just right? Also, my magnesium is listed as above optimum. What, if anything, can be done to chage that to optimum? Thank you. Todd Lautner.

A local nonprofit acquired hundreds of tulip bulbs to sell at a local fair. They sold lots, but still have hundreds left. Can they store them in a dry, cool place over winter and sell in the spring? Will tulips thrive if NOT planted in the fall? Can they store the tulip bulbs over winter for sale next August/September, 2014? If so, what's the proper procedures to ensure good, healthy bloomers in the future?
