Help please! I am attaching a photo of Echinacea. I fear it has the dreaded "frizzy' disease. It was healthy up until recently when the tops began to sprout on it. Do I have to remove this plant? We have other Echinacea plants that look fine - right now! Thank you! V.Calder

I have an area that butts up to a fence and its approximately 3 feet deep and 40 feet long. I have 2 trees planted thus far, but do not know how to design this area. This area gets a lot of sun! South facing. What could I do here to add interest, color, etc. to my yard?

Is there any research to show the efficacy of keeping dryer sheets on one's person when around bees or wasps as a deterrent from stings? If so, who and where has the research been conducted?
I'm interested in getting a speaker for our township addressing the care of tree and how to properly plant trees etc. If yes, is there a charge?
Hello. I have 2 questions. one - We have a childcare home in Ham Lake and are focusing on gardening this spring. The children planted the seeds, cared for them, transplanted them to the large outdoor garden and are currently identifying plants, weeding, harvesting and eating them! I am wondering if it is possible to have a Master Gardener come to our site to give the children an on-site field trip with more information than I am able to provide them. Question two: We are not getting much produce, even though our plant leaves are large and beautiful. Is this normal for a first year garden? How do I know what to put into our garden soil this fall to enrich it? We are keeping it organic. Thank you very much! Stephanie Ponticas

I'd really like to get my kindergarten aged daughter involved with 4-H, but I don't know much about it or who to contact about getting more information about it. I live in Decorah, IA. Can you help?

We have pastures for horses and some beautiful clover, but chickweed is invading and I would like to get rid of it but leave the clover alone. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
We've got some land in Sublette County outside of La Barge and Big Piney that is covered with sagebrush. It is on the foothill of the mountains and normally produces decent grass for grazing. We've been talking about clearing the sagebrush and planting some test plots of forage or grass to see if this could produce some decent dry farm grazing land for our cattle. Could your AG office recommend some varieties of forage or grass that might do well in the dry, arid climate of Western Wyoming?

We have Rust on our lawn that was hydro seeded last year. Will it go away on it's own or should we treat it with a fungicide? If so, when should we apply it? Will a fungicide burn our lawn if we put it on now?

We live in Williamson county in TN. We found this by a creek behind our apartment, and there were maybe 3 piles of poop just like this. After researching we thought that it could be bear poop because there was so much of it, and it was seedy and grainy?
