boxwood

WE have 6 boxwoods along he west side of the house that have done very well, up until the snow this last winter. Most of the plants are half dead; some of the branches didn't seem to be affected. Is it advisable to trim back the entire plant in the fall hoping that the spring will bring new shoots on the entire plant.

Best grass seed mix?

I live in Roseburg just a few blocks off of Harvard Ave. where the soil run towards black mud. What is the best grass seed for this area? Water use, maintenance, and ease of starting are all important concerns. The yard is flat and in full sun. I've killed off most of the vegetation by not watering and would like to use a thatching attachment to my mower to prep the seed bed.

Vien Chlorosis: Shumard Oak?

Hi
I hope you can help me identify a problem with my Shumard Red oak. I live in Dallas and for the past 2 years, this backyard oak has developed a pronounced yellowing of its veins (Chlorsis?) throughout the tree. It’s only about 6’ tall now (having re-planted it from a seedling that we believe is from its parent tree in our front lawn: a rather large and very healthy Shumard). A few years ago, another oak tree that was in the same general location as this oak also yellowed (not just the veins but the whole leaf) and eventually had to be taken down. As for this tree, although the supplemental Iron Plus that was applied as directed (at several locations around the tree drip-line) this last spring appeared to resolve the problem at first (producing healthy foliage like a gang buster during the spring), the yellowing veins are back just as bad as last year. Also, the tips on several new branches appear to be almost burned and dry. We of course had our soil tested which showed a generally normal Ph level. Since a Carolina Jasmine within 8’ of this oak also appears to be yellowing (despite the addition of the Iron Plus product also on this), could this be soil contamination deeper than 4-6”s??? Our house was built in 1964 and you never know what was dumped there and covered over.
Anyhow, I hope you don’t mind giving your thoughts and suggestions.
Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Dan

Cantaloupe problems.

My cantaloupe plant is healthy and growing beautifully. No obvious leaf problems. Have many blooms and plenty of bees. My problem is when a cantaloupe starts to form, it's beautifully green and looks great, but in just a few days it turns yellow and falls off... What can I do? I have a watermelon plant right next to it and it's doing beautiful, have many mellons at different stages with no problems. Any suggestions on how to help my cantaloupe plant? Thanks!

I believe I have apple scab (see picture) on my 1 yr old plantings of honey crisp, frostbite, Macintosh, haralson, snow sweet and honey gold, it's worse on some trees, and they are all affected to various degrees. It appears to be worse on the snow sweet and honey crisp. My main question is confirmation that it is apple scab, and if that is the case, what should I do to deal with it at this point in the season? I read about apple scab via the extension website, but it seems like spring is the time to deal with it, should I do nothing till spring? Or is there something that I can do now? If it doesn't seem to be apple scab, I'm wondering what else it could be and how to deal with it. Thanks in advance.
