Here is the question...We would like to move the location of the asparagus in the garden, what is the best time and method for asparagus transplant. Thank you for your time.

I am considering planting palm trees around our pool area but have heard there are very messy varieties. I have been unsuccessful in locating & viewing images of the fruits & flowers they produce & would appreciate any advice you can offer. Any varieties you can suggest or maybe we should stay away from them all together? Thanks & I look forward to your reply. T. Johnson

There are no grapes on the vines so I don't have any berry dammage but I can't tell if this is black spot or leaf rust or what. If it is leaf rust do I have to spray the vines before they go dormant for the season to prevent damage in the spring to buds?

There is an old Maple tree in my big yard (est. the trunk to be 2.5-3' wide) and the roots are popping out of the ground in a half dozen locations. Either they are sticking out higher, or my ground is sinking. So far no injuries but I can foresee this being an issue... Can I burry them with more dirt? Cut them out? I don’t want to hurt the tree, it is a beautiful part of the landscape and really old given its size. Just FYI, I live in Eden Prairie/MN maybe 50 feet away from a small lake - if that makes a diff. Thanks in advance for any suggestions in advance!

I just determined that i have armored scale on several plants. I'm freaking out. Can you please help me determine the best product to rid myself of these little animals? They are live, I checked…squished a few. Will winter kill them? I'm anxious they will spread to other plants/trees in my yard. Are they as hard to kill as I read about online…help please.

Hello, I submitted a question last week and never received a response. I thought I'd try again. I have purchased a new home that has several identical rose bushes surrounding it, and I'm wondering if you can provide me with any kind of information about what type of roses they are and how to best care for them. I'm especially interested in knowing whether or not they need to be covered during the winter months and when to dead head and remove hips. Thanks!

Would like to know identify of insect I found. It appears to be some type of bee. It has hair on body much like bumble bee, but was orange with black striping. I saved him by preserving in rubbing alcohol, but it first turned brown and shrunk, most of the color did return. I still have it, if you need to see it.

Tree Question

Hi I have a question about one of my trees. I live near Fort Worth (in Tarrant County). I have a tree that is about 7-8 years old. I believe it is a Bradford Pear. It appears to be slightly leaning to one side. The main root on the opposite side seems to be raising above ground. Also the base of the tree appears rather dark. It may be that the soil has eroded over time. I am wondering whether I should add more soil around the tree or take any other action. Thanks for any help you can provide. Thanks Jim Williamson PS Please let me know if you need any additional images.
