Just purchased a park model home in so.Texas. The northside of the home has a number of 5ft. and taller poinsettia(tree) plants. As we are leaving to go north very soon, I would like to know what and how to trim back or summer-ize them. Do I need to add fertilizer or supplements to the ground, or aerate it? Also do I cut them back & how to do it.

I am wanting to change the boulevard in my front from traditional grass to a low maintenance ground cover or plants. Something to stand up to the piles of snow and road silt that comes from winter piles between the street and sidewalk. Any suggestions on what should be considered.

We live in Tomball, TX just NW of Houston. We have a huge backyard 1/2 acre. The St. Augustine grass is disappearing and being replaced by many types of weeds. We have a sprinkler system throughout the back but don't want to water the weeds. We are at a loss.
Hi. What type of tree do I have here?
I live in The Woodlands, Tx Town Center, an urban development in a New York style brownstone town home development (four stories tall). When originally landscaped, each town home entrance stairs had one or two Junipers placed either side. In 10 years they have grown way too big and intrude into the stairs and look out of place. We are discussing replacement with Italian Cypress or dwarf Italian Cypress, but don't know how these 2 varieties will differ in our coastal area (size and/or how successfully they can be grown). Also, are wondering if they can be trimmed if they get too big. Your help on these issues as well as any other suggestion for a replacement shrub/tree would be GREATLY appreciated. I can forward a picture if I get an email, but your attach a pic doesn't seem to work for me. Thank you! Ramona Darnley
I live on the Big T River and was flooded out last fall. I had 1-5 feet of silt all over my property. I have hauled most of it away but I have two questions. 1) I want to replant my pasture grass. With a small layer of silt still existing, how do I best prepare my soil for reseeding and 2) my garden plot was flooded. The water was, of course toxic. Can I use that garden soil without fear of contamination of some sort or should I replace the dirt entirely?
Is there a good spring-planted cover crop that would help mitigate salinity problems, over time, in garden soils?

I planted a honeysuckle plant in a ceramic pot. The pot is sitting approx. 10 inches out from a brick wall that faces southeast. How frequently should I be watering it and how much water? Any other advice such as fertilizing, feeding etc. is much appreciated.
Greetings! I am a St. Paul resident interested in learning more about agroforestry and medicinal herb farming. I am particularly interested in growing ginseng, goldenseal, and other native medicinals and am wondering what kinds of classes and/or other resources are available to learn more about growing on land in the St. Croix Valley area. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated, as I am hoping to start preparing to start forest farming this summer and fall. Regards, Bonnie Hering 612-462-9311

Extensive dieback on different evergreen trees. Bottom browning up to the top. Showing up a lot in the past few weeks.
We have a huge issue with yellowjackets near the lilac bush (and our front door) in the rv park we live in. My husband is allergic and we have just been lucky so far. We need to find their nest and early. Don't get around very well so hope you can help.

I have read mulching articles by Drs. Stein and Parson. Their articles mention clean straw and grass clippings which reach over 140 degrees when in plastic for 48 hrs. Certified weed-free straw is difficult to find. Grass clippings have a bad record re weeds since gardeners probably guess temperatures. Typical bark mulches don't work in a veg garden. Why are not leaves saved from the fall the best choice for garden mulches? I am not finding articles that recommend leaf mulch for gardens although I saw in Dr. Church's gardens in Collin County, leaf mulching. Drawbacks? Thank you. Lois O'Neal

I have several pine trees that seem to have needle miner damage. The needles look like the Ponderosa Pine Needle Miner photos in the book "Insects and Diseases of Woody Plants" which I think is a CSU book.
The needles on the outer portions of the branches die back. Any new growth soon exhibits drops of sap and dies.
The book says that the miners have a lot of natural pests, so I just watched and thought they problem would go away. It is getting worse. Now that spring is here I would like to try appropriate treatment. Some photos from last fall are attached. Thanks.
