apple tree from a cutting

I purchased an apple tree from lowes 2 years ago. I'm curious, is it possible to grow a second tree by taking a cutting from the live one? If so, what do I need to do? I tried putting a couple cuttings in water with willow branches and they stayed alive but didn't grow any leaves or roots.

Plants that can live under an evergreen

My neighbors have large evergreen trees (not sure just what kind) that extend well over the property line. The needles are quite thick & I cannot get anything to grow except for the occasional weed.

Can you advise if there is any kind of plant that can live in that environment?

These are on the west side of my house & the afternoon sun can be quite intense. I do have a sprinkler system, so water is not an issue. I just need to find something that can live there.

thanks

archived materials?

There was an Extension study done in the mid-to-late 80's or early 90's that suggested the wide use of irrigation, diminishing aquifer & continued drought would turn the high Eastern plains of Colorado into a desert & the recommendation was to turn this land back into grassland, for grazing. Buffalo were recommended. Can you please help us locate this study or similar materials, as we sit here in Eckley on an encroaching sand dune? Thank you.

Corn for subsequent crops

Hi, I'm new to home-garden farming and so I wonder what happens to corn crop at the end of the year? Since its an Annual, do I rip up the stalks after harvest and retill from scratch? Or is there a reason to keep the stalk through the winter (it will certainly snow where I live) and do anything with it for the following planting season?
