I need to transplant approximately 6-year-old asparagus plants and would like to know the best way to remove them from their old location and reestablish them in the new location.
I have had termites in the past. I am always concerned about mulch. Can you recommend a mulch that will not encourage termites?

Where might I find a Korean spice viburnum? Is it a good choice in our area?
Hello, Our backyard is divided in two by a sidewalk. One side is beautiful thick grass, the other is grass with a lot of Creeping Charlie. My wife and I have been fighting a losing battle with this weed for the better part of six years, and we have decided it is not working. My question is this, we have decided to just kill the whole area, grass and all, and then re-seed. I have used a spray that is certainly killing the grass, and some of the Creeping Charlie, but it is not wholly effective. Could I just take a power tiller and go to town on the entire area, then re-seed? Or by doing that, would I simply be redistributing the Creeping Charlie in which case it would re-sprout? Many thanks!

I had several beautiful lilies that were budding before the snow of yesterday and today 5/11 - 5/12, 2014. I did not cover them and I'm afraid they will die. Would it help if I water them now to dissolve the snow and then cover them? I'm afraid that the freeze tonight will surely kill them.
Hello. I planted vadalia onion sets and a couple of days later went on a trip. We were gone for 6 days and when we got home all of my onions were gone. We think that birds took them for nests. How do I replant and not have this happen again?

What's with the invasion of green and black inch worms (don't know what else to call them) in our neighborhood? We live in Port Tobacco, Maryland. In my 10 years of gardening in Port Tobacco and 30 years in Charles County, I have never seen such an invasion. Are they damaging, should we try to get rid of them and how? Plus, there are black and tan caterpillar looking creatures everywhere. What are they and what should we do about them? I am seeing holes in leaves on trees and more webbing in trees than usual. Thank so much. I am concerned!
Hello and thank you in advance for your time!
I have an office in my basement. I've worked here since last May. About a month to two months ago, I began feeling small bites on my legs and arms. I only have small marks on my skin where something has tried to burrow into my skin. I caught two of these things...they're extremely small, maybe 10mm long. We had an exterminator spray the office, but I didn't have the criminals caught yet, so I couldn't show them to him.
Where can I take these specimens to be examined? These things are causing me great pain...I need to fix this. I've attached a picture that I took with my iphone...it will probably offer very, very little information, but it's there.
Can I grow grape vine in a huge pot for as long as its age? I want to make a movable bed for the vine like in the image. Idea behind this is to keep it on the belcony. And may or may not need to move from that location. I am from the maldives where there is only 2 warm seasons. A hot and a warm rainy season. Mostly sunny though. Any idea or suggestion will be appreciated. Good day Jin
What is eating my blueberry plant leaves and what should I do to treat it? Where do I purchase the treatment. I've tried slug bait and that was not it. This pest has plagued me for years and comes out when the plant comes out of dormancy and starts growing leaves
I have some seriously large black "ants" (1" long) in abundance around my house this time each year. Are they termites or ants? No wings.
We had three shrub roses that developed black spot. We finally removed them last fall since the disease was gradually weakening the plants. Would it be okay to plant new shrub roses in the same spot this spring or should we wait until next year to let the fungus die off from around the area? Thank you, Cathy Spencer

I have three zucchini seedlings that I purchased a few weeks ago when they had just sprouted with 2 leaves. I have kept them indoors in my very sunny sun-room and they are now about 10 inches tall with the flower buds beginning to form. When can I plant them outdoors? I have tried zucchini squash every year for the past 10 years and after the first fruit is picked they slowly die from squash borers. I've done everything, including picking them out and binding up the vines with duct tape. I read somewhere that if I wait to plant zucchini the moth or butterfly or whatever lays its eggs on the squash plant will no longer be around and I can have squash-borer-free plants. Please advise when I can plant them or what to do short of using chemicals on my tender seedlings.
2 weeks ago the leaves on my hops started looking like the photo. Problem has spread fast. Didn't match anything I read about in The Homebrewer's Garden or in the pnwhandbooks .org Thanks for your help! Jen

Do I need to protect against rats coming up from the bottom of the new raised beds (4'x8'x15" boxes)? We recently moved to Multnomah Village and am building the boxes for our garden behind the house. A person at the Gabriel Community Gardens said the Gardens are infested with rats that burrow up under the raised beds and eat the plants. We are a mile away from there. He's using hardware cloth as a preventative. I'd rather avoid the extra expense and assembly time. Also, since I plan to use the double dig method, hardware cloth would make that very difficult; i.e. I would have to remove all of the soil 12" down, put it aside, before putting the raised bed box in place and then putting the soil that I had removed inro the boxes. I have seen no evidence of either rats or moles, nor have I ever had to worry about rats in gardening in Colorado or New England, But we haven't done any gardening here yet. I'm planning ahead, I do not want to over prepare, but also don't want to have to rectify the problem later; i.e.probably having to undo everything in order to add hardware cloth. What to do? Thanks.
Thanks for listening, planted new blackberries last spring pruned all canes that produced, this spring canes I left are dead. I have new growth coming on bottom, am I correct in thinking this years producing canes are dead? Next question should I cut them out or wait till fall? Thanks for listening. New to this berry thing. Blackberries, blueberries, grapes, currents, gooseberries, becoming a bit of a learning experience!!! Oh yea thanks again Denny
