10 Ft Ruddy Red Oak planting

When planting I put a full bag of potting soil in the bottom of a 30 gallon hole and forgot to mix it with the surrounding (clay) soil. At this time it is leafing what seems to be OK. I still have it staked after 3 years since planting as it still has a spindley top with a very weak leader. How can I correct that? Should I flush that potting soil with a root feeder at the appropriate watering time or leave it. The leafing seems to be OK but the tree is not growing a trunk and I feel if I removed the stakes it would not survive a storm

cherry fruit drop

The nicely formed cherries are developing a dried brown area which increases until the whole fruit is dried brown and mummified. There is no soft rot or appearance of fingus spores. When the cherry become almost entirely mummified it drops to the ground. I have searched on-line but am having no luck in identifying this so I don't know if it can be treated. It is a young tree which was planted two years ago and this is the first year it has had any cherries. Please help. Cheryl

Cottonwood Tree Health

Hello!
Thanks for being here for us.
I have three Cottonwood trees in a row. The middle is a triple trunk and it has alway appeared much different looking than the two that flank it. All three have looked very healthy though until this year. Attached are two pictures (one from front yard one from back yard), The left tree has a normal looking AMOUNT of buds/leaves but is very unhealthy looking. The right tree has many bare branches and it also has unhealthy looking buds/leaves.
Can I bring in samples to have them looked at?
Thank You!

Plant care at 7100 feet near Indian Hills, CO

Hi, we have a cabin near Indian Hills, CO (at 7100 foot altitude) and have planted some ground cover plants to help a natural mountainside rock wall become more stable. Of course, the idea is to have the root systems assist us with stability while providing some nice cover to the area. We are curious what you might be able to tell us about the watering frequency. The plants are Vinca, Hen and Chicks, Snow in Summer. Any advice would be helpful as we live in Denver a lot of the time and go back and forth to the 7100 foot cabin. If you can help us with a schedule, we'd be VERY grateful. Cal & Rahven Kemper

I have 2 very large gardens of blueberry bushes in my back yard. Several years ago we covered the gardens with mulch obtained from the Harford county landfill in Scarboro. Two summers ago we started noticing orange stinkhorns in these gardens. Last summer the number increased. We dug them out as soon as they emerged, along with any "eggs" in the surrounding area. Today the first stinkhorn of the season emerged and it appears there are many more to come! What can we do to eradicate these from our gardens?

One is in the front and the other in the back but in a straight line from each. A nursery suggested we get in touch with you . Also had to cut back our fig tree.

Tomato plant death

For the past few summers, my tomato plants will die after only a month or so of being in the garden. Flowers and a few tomatoes will form but then the entire plant dies. Towards the end of last summer, the cucumber and zucchini plants also seemed to die all at once. Green beans were the only plants unaffected. I want to keep the garden organic and would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
