Hello, I have lettuce, radish and some other cool weather plants that I want to transplant or direct see for spring. Is there a time in March to do this (March 20th) or should I wait until the night temperatures are above mid 30s. I have floating row covers.
I have a blue spruce in my front lawn and is infected with Cytospora canker and is there any treatment ? The tree is 86% green with the lower branches infected. Also what type of fertilizer could I use and how often would I water the tree? Thank you Mark
Is it harmful to humans if infected liver is consumed
Are evergreen trees in Portland/Vancouver area dropping pollen right now? There are some spring in the Juneau, Alaska area when the pollen comes off the trees in visible waves like fog. It floats on the waterways. Have a relative in Portland/Vancouver area suffering form spring airborne pollen and I wondered if that could be a big source.

If i cut my walnut yrees down how long will the jugline remain in the ground and affect my gardens? What do i need to do besides cut down the trees? Do i need to replace the soil in my gardens?
The most popular formula for fogging verroa seems to be 25g. to 35g. oxalic dissolved in 100 ml. of 90% to 95% alcohol. Shooting an open flame at 180 proof alcohol mist seems to me to be highly explosive. Since the alcohol is merely a carrier for the oxalic, I would like to substitute distilled water at 100 ml./25g. My
questions are: would this be a safe substitution, and what would the optimum oxalic concentration be?
I will be using a Burgess propane fogger, appx. $60.00 at Rural King.

I have a 50+ year old wild type rhodo (one of many) that is sickening - I suspect a fungal disease. Leaves are yellowing and drooping, with bulls-eye spots that are white in the center with dead brown and dying red rings of tissue. A nearby rhodo is sickening. About one half of the sick rhodo has died and been romved. Any suggestions on causation and treatment would be appreciated.

Hello, I have ash trees that have been successfully treated against the EAB in Jefferson County Kentucky. I'm wondering since so many ash trees have died in the last few years, is the EAB still a problem that must be defended against as of March 2018? In other words, has the EAB's damage been done to such an extent, that it's killed off it's food* source and it will die off from lack of this food (or host)? *Or perhaps the ash trees are just hosts, not food. If that is not the case yet in 2018, is that a likely scenario for 2019 or perhaps a few years after that? Thanks in advance for your opinion.

I have a lavender bed (Provence) that has plants from the two past seasons and this year I intend on filling in some of the holes with additional plants. Is there a way for me to trim/cut back the existing lavender so that everything is the same size and shape or will you always be able to tell which plants are old and which are new? Does it matter when in the season I do this shaping and planting?
Thanks for your help!

I noticed a hole in my backyard in the fall. It has gotten a little bigger since that time. Current dimensions are 21 inches diameter and 27 inches deep. The bottom of the hole has approx 2-4 inches of water. I don't know what is causing this or who to call to try to get the hole taken care of. +
I have found 3 dead raccoons in my sheds and farm yard in the last month. Only one had lacerations. I have a dog who checks out the sheds on her own. What causes of death could endanger her in case she locates a half dead one or interacts with the dead bodies?

I noticed that my photinia was producing suds today. On one limb to the right, in the picture, you can see bubbles midway up and suds on down. ON the left there is a white blotch of bubbles at the base - which did appear to have dripped down from up that limb when I got closer. I saw bubble remnants above the white blotch. What in the world is going on? I figured you would know what this is about. Thank you!
Hi, Several years ago I moved inherited a garden with an established concord grape vine. The first year I did no pruning and had a bumper crop of ripe grapes. The next 2 years I pruned aggressively and grapes developed but did not ripen. Last year I discovered black rot mold and based on UMD CE's advice (Question:406857) I began spraying every few weeks. I also cut back leaves so grapes would get sun, but they still didn't ripen (only a few on each bunch). I just pruned the vine based on what I learned on line (choosing 10 healthy looking 1 year old spurs that are pencil thick. Should I spray the vine just to make sure there are no mites or mold that survived the winter? Attached are two photos.
I have a closed composter. I opened up the left-hand compartment on the weekend, which hadn't been used or added to since summer. It is filled with larvae like objects (see picture). They are not moving. I spread some of the compost on the ground, where it has been for the last few days. The "larvae" have not moved. (And no birds have eaten them AFAIK.) Any idea what they are? What should I do? Throw it out? Ignore the larvae and proceed to use the compost?
I work at an after school daycare for about 3 hours each day and we mainly play the entire time but I have been considering doing a few fun demonstrations or activities for the kids that involve agriculture and can teach the children a few things simultaneously.

We live in Portland, Oregon and have some grass and some moss and some grass struggling because dogs pee in the front yard. The backyard is lush with good grass. Is there somewhere we can have the earth tested from our front yard to see what fertilizer we might need and what type of grass seed to plant in late March, after the plumbing job is complete?
