We have a field of KR bluestem that has suffered due to recent drought conditions. The field has always had some bluebonnets but with the recent thinning of the KR, the bluebonnets have increased and are covering a large extent of the pasture, greater than 50% ground cover in some areas. Should control of them be considered by spraying during the rossette stage to aid in the KR to naturally reseed and improve?
Do you have a cure or treatment for bacterial wilt on tomatoes?
Is it possible for multicolored glads to revert to a previous stock or color, maybe a pre-hybrid color? I would swear when I first planted mine there were many colors and now they are all the same, shocking pink and white,but still very large and healthy plants. I did leave them in the ground several years ago during a Central NY winter and maybe half survived. Could survival of the fittest cause all to revert to single color blooms? Please advise.

I've been reading up on them and how they can help with pollinating fruit and vegetable plants. I've seen a nest box for sale in a vegetable catalog. Would the bees just naturally come to the location? This whole topic sounds really beneficial.
I know it's a few months off, but I thought about this while watching the Rose Bowl. I need to find a way to reduce/eliminate fruit from our crab apple. Some years it's not so bad. Last year I found only one (a single) crab apple fruit in the driveway. Yay! This year it was horrible. A very good crop, coupled with the fact that most of the fruit didn't drop until it was rotten, made it so that I'm still sweeping fruit off the driveway and sidewalk, which are now totally smeared with the remains of rotten fruit. Hopefully it's over. I tried the Florel fruit reducing spray a couple of years ago, but didn't get very good results. Any suggestions for this year other than cutting the tree down, which I won't do? It's a beautiful tree nine months of the year. I see the same messy results in front of the Crook County courthouse and Prineville PD. Thanks
I'm going to be planting approx. 24 fruit trees in an area of about 80 X 150 ft. This is going to be a new orchard located on a slight slope in full sunlight. I'm going to be spacing the trees about 20 ft. from each other and 20 ft. between rows. What is the best kind of plant (or plants) to use as a ground cover?
Thanks very much.
How can you completer your assessment if the website accepted your payment, but asks for another payment?
I have these little tiny bugs scurrying around in my topsoil in my houseplants. What are these critters and how should I get rid of them? Thanks !
Would you please provide a description of what happens "internally" when grafting grapevines? What happens to the new part (scion I think it is called) and to the vine? Does the scion grow somehow into the vine, or is it all "one-way" - vine somehow pushing itself into the scion?
