Apple tree bark looks charred.

One of my apple trees has bark that looks charred. Is it fire blight? Something else? The tree has been heavily pruned to a flat surface on a gentle south slope. The damage seems to be mostly on limbs with heavy sun exposure.

Hi, my wife and I moved into a house last fall and this winter I noticed...

Hi, my wife and I moved into a house last fall and this winter I noticed damage around a broken tree branch in a birch tree. I don't know how long ago this branch broke or how long it has looked like this but I am wondering how serious this is for the tree? This portion of the tree doesn't look healthy at all. All other areas of the tree look unaffected by it. Can you please let me know if there's anything I should do at this time to help the tree? I have attached a picture. If If this isn't the right place to send this question, please let me know. Thank you for your help.

Vine recommendation for Chain Link fence in Albuquerque

We are in the process of planting a Vine to cover a Chain Link fence in our community. Our Landscaper has suggested Polygonum Aubertii, or silver lace vine. Is this a good choice for low maintenance while looking attractive? Not to invasive? Do you have an alternative recommendation? Thank You.

We have had milkweed growing in our yard for the past 7 years, two to three years ago, mid season the milkweed began to look like it had been sprayed with Tar, but mainly on the underside. Once this happened, I tried cutting down our milkweed, but I don't want to loose them. We enjoy the Monarchs that lay eggs on them and the caterpillars. The last year the new plants had the same disease and the tops of the milkweed bush out. Will try to get a picture as soon as I can. Would the stuff be in the soil? What can I do?

Poppy from seed

Hi, I am wondering if I can plant California poppy from seeds indoors, or if I should plant them outside in pots before the last frost? I have heard they need to have a period of cold. Thanks Darlene
