I noticed that all the Leyland Cypress trees in the Wolfsville, MD area are brown and look dead. Is this a blight or because of the cold winter?

I have strawberries planted in a bed along the south side of my home. The house is old and the exterior has some lead based paint. I don't feel safe eating anything from the bed right next to the home because of possible lead contamination in the soil. My question is whether it is safe to transplant those strawberry plants to a clean location in the yard, or if I need to start with new plants altogether. Would a new soil/location eliminate the lead exposure and make the berries safe to eat, or are the plants themselves contaminated? Thanks for your help.
Please suggest some perennials to plant on the north side of my home.

I am in central Massachusetts in a location with sandy soil. I planted two 5yr old espaliered Honeycrisp Apple trees as well as an espaliered Liberty Apple 3yrs ago. For 2 seasons the Honeycrisps have produced only 1-2 blossoms per tree while the Liberty is loaded with blossoms. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to encourage the Honeycrisps?

I recently sent a question concerning amending soil for blueberries. The response I received was concerning soil amendments before planting the blueberries. My problem is the plants are already in the soil which I had tested - result 6.6 ph. How can I amend this soil when the blueberries are already planted - meaning how much of what can I add at once, every week withoug hurting the plants?

I just put quick release lime on my yard. It was a pretty heavy dose to compensate for years of oak tree leaves. I want to seed many pare spots that the winter created. Do I need to wait for a period before seeding?
Is comfrey invasive? It's good in shade and deer-resistant so it might be good for my wooded area, but worried it might take over!

We have several three year old aspen trees that have started to lean over-on the top portion only. They were starting to bend prior to this last heavy May snow, but got much worse. We've trimmed and tied the trunks together to help support each other, but are wondering if there is anything else that can be done or if we should add support by tying the very tallest portions to help add support. It's as if the trunks haven't grown quick enough to support the weight.

Japanese Spurge: I have a large circular area (20 -25') of Japanese Spurge around a large maple tree that started to get patchy, dying out, yellowish last year and now again this spring. I vacuumed and raked out a lot of matted leaves from the maple tree last fall but none this year yet. The Spurge has been growing well and healthy for 7 years since we moved in, but is now thinner and less vigorous looking. What can I do to help it? Does it have a life expectancy that's running out? I don't know how old it is beyond the 7 years we've owned it. I can send a photo if you like.
I live on the north side of Woodland Park, my front lawn is typical mountain high altitude grass except for these clumps or tuffs. They are multiplying very fast. Can anyone tell me what this is? Whether it is a weed or a fungus? And how best to get rid of it? Thanks, C.D.

Rudbeckia or giant ragweed?
I would love some help identifying this plant. I can't tell if it's rudbeckia (which I'd keep) or giant ragweed (which I'd pull immediately). We have tons around the border of our yard. The leaves and stems are both hairy, but not prickly, and every leaf has a distinct trilobe shape. The stems are green. In Mid-May in Zone 7b, these plants are 1-2 ft tall. Thank you!
We found this snake by our office and was wondering if it is native to Iowa. It had teeth and was striking.

Can you help me identify what this woody weed is? I find it in various stages of growth throughout my yard and in neighbors' yards. It seems more sturdy than a simple tree seedling and it doesn't really resemble any of the trees already growing on the block.

Over the winter until now, I've watched this plant bloom. I was curious if this is a tree or bush? It's located over at the Rendezvous dog park on the south side of Logan. there are about three or four rounds of them, close to the stream. I thought it turned out really nice, compared to it's bare essence in January. Any leads?

I have a number of little tiny grambel oaks coming up along my driveway - they do this every year and every year they are either mowed down or sprayed. I would like to propagate these - moving them further into a garden area. How would I do this and when? Or perhaps the question is can this be done? I think these are coming up from a long dead tree. Thanks so much.

5-16-14; Recently I ask a question in regrds. to several of our"Ol'Matured Boxwood Hedges"die'g & on some, showing brown dead leaves/stems, this year. It was graciously answered & deeply appreciated.! However, the answer seem to come straight out of a Technology Bk.!! We understood little, to none of the answer. Would U please forward a more "Down-to Earth" answer.? We've no degrees, nor experience in Horticulture. We have horses. Thank you, once again for your time & hopefully your understanding with this unfortunate occurrence. Respectfully, Jack & Bubbles Wilhite..Drought Stricken Texas
What common variety of Hens & Chicks was common around many farm homes during the 1940's and 1950's in Washington County (TX). Frequently found in planters i.e. old wash tubs and such. There many varieties now but I would like to find the common ones grown during that era. Any ideas will be greatly appreciate. If anyone there is old enough to remember Dutch Hohn...well he was my "hero" with his amazing humor.
