Wilting eggplant in vegetable garden

I planted healthy eggplant starts in my vegi garden about a month ago and now the lower leaves are wilting and turning yellow, one plant much worse than the other (I pulled it out yesterday). Getting online I'm reading about this Verticulum wilt and it's making me panic. Should I pull up the rest of my garden and cover it with black plastic? I have corn, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumber, watermelon and various greens in other parts of the garden as well as raspberries, asparagus, fig and other fruit trees nearby. My Tomatoes are developing some leaf curling, not sure it that is part of the same problem. Suggestions? Thank you, Tracy

Tomato Plant Problems

My tomato plants were healthy and beautiful on Saturday. On Sunday morning we noticed yellow leaves. Today there are more yellow leaves, and now they are starting to die. Can you please help? The affected varieties are the Sweet 100s, but one of the Husky Cherry Reds is starting to show damage. They are planted in Miracle Gro Moisture Control potting soil.

What is killing all our young pines in the UP

We live on a 4 acre island in the Les Cheneaux area of the UP. We have quite a number of young pine trees- trunks about three inches wide near ground that seem to be dying off...they have a fungus and spider web like look to the branches but perhaps it is actual fungus and webs that have attached to a dead or dying tree. The lower branches seem to be the first to go...and eventually it moves up and the entire tree dies. I would appreciate any guidance you could offer and any remedy you could suggest. We are so sad these new growth trees are not surviving. We have lots dozens of large cedars due to winds and shallow roots and had expected these younger trees to grow up and fill in. It is a sorry sight to see now sparse our formerly wooded island has become.

We are in Mackinac County...which does not seem to be an option in the pull down list of counties below.

Forsythia problem

Hello, We planted a forsythia bush in May. It was thriving until the rains came. Afterward, the leaves drooped and are now drying up. I scratched one branch and it was still green. Should I cut it back or leave it alone and hope for the best? Thanks so much!

Yews - diseased? Insects?

I have several yews (over 70) that are 42" high and about 3' wide - these were installed three years ago - something is happening to them and we cant figure out why...they are starting at each end of the rows and working towards the middle. These were purchased from Angelica Nursery in Maryland and shipped here. The type is "Moon". Any advise would be greatly appreciated. It is not water damage. Thanks,

Tulip poplar sap

This year our trees are “raining” sap in in greater quantity than I recall from past years. Is this condition being experienced around the region or is this localized? What conditions are contributing to this? How long should we expect to experience this sap deluge? Any insight you can offer will be appreciated. Thanks. Jon

sweet slice cucumber - leaves

Hello, I am growing 2 sweet slice cucumber plants that I started from transplants bought at Valley View farms. The plants are in a container and I have used brand new Espoma potting mix. I mulched with pine bark. I have harvested one fruit from the plant. The leaves however are starting to turn yellow with brown spots. The bottom leaves on both plants are affected the most. Although there are male flowers and one healthy fruit on the plant, the ovaries of female flowers and tips of some of the tendrils are drying up.

I have given the plants Espoma liquid fertilizer (organic) and while planting, I added some organic fertilizer in the soil (Tomato Tone). Please see pictures and please help me identify and address the problem. Thank you very much!

what is the name and treatment for this disease?

Today I noticed this spotting on the shrub in our garden. I do not know what kind of shrub it is. It is with some dogwoods and hostas. It has rained nearly everyday for 4 days straight, and I do not think this was on the shrub last summer. What is the name of the shrub? What is the treatment for the disease?

Is this a bug bite?

I was outside during the day at a party and when I came back home I noticed two very small (very small) red puncture rooms on my inner knees. There is no itching or pain, and they're not bumpy. Just curious as to what they could be?

Small Blue Beech tree leaves look like something is wrong

​I​ bought a Blue Beech tree last fall and planted it in my backyard. It was about 1 inch diameter and 7 feet tall. I checked it this past week and noticed many of the leaves (maybe 1/3- 1/2) have pieces missing - like something is eating them, and have brown sections like they've dried up. I have attached two pictures to show how the leaves look. Do you have any idea of what is wrong? Is there something I can do to help it get more healthy? Thanks for your help! Lynn Norby

ash tree with dead branches

I noticed my ash tree did not seem to be providing as much shade as past years. As I looked up, I discovered a number of smaller dead braches on the interior of the tree and two large dead branches at the crown. I haven't noticed any fungal or insect signs so I think this is likely enviromental stress damage. I was reading on your site about root problems/constriction. I have a large trumpet vine nearby which has insidious roots. Could that cause the problem?

Please identify bug

Please tell me what these bugs are and how I should treat them. These plants are on a prairie perennials garden. So far, I think they are only affecting this one clump of plants. Do I need to be concerned with them spreading to other plants? One picture is a close-up of the bugs. The other shows damage to the plant. Thanks!
