Soil erosion

Landscaping questions

I live in a condo with managed landscaping, I do have some limited access to gardening with in the flower and shrub beds. I have lived here for 7 years with mulching every year and there is at least 7 inches of mulch or more on the beds plus a landscape fabric under that. When possible I have removed the fabric since it is over clay soil and the soil is compacting to a hard damp mess and tried to break up the soil to allow airation. My question is; how much mulch is too much? What is recommended? and should I be fluffing or racking the mulch to refresh it or should it be removed and we start over, there is evidence of white mold layers. I am also on the board of directors and we are starting to rethink our landscaping management practices. Please know we inherited these problems from the builder who we just recently took over the management of the community. I would love to speak with someone but do not know who to contact. We as a community management team would love to speak with someone who could give us advise on appropriate foundation shrubs and trees to invest in. We want to be responsible to the attractiveness of our over all community as well as responsible to the plants we invest in, for their health, vitality and placing them in a location that will make us all happy. Can you help???????

I recently purchased an indoor miniature rose plant which had 20 or more unopened buds. None of the buds opened. Some had brown stems below the bud only to the main stem and fell off easily. Those that looked healthy developed the brown stem beneath the bud as well. The rose bush looks healthy. I purchased and brought it home on a below 0 day but covered it to the car. Two other rose plants were purchased on the same day yet they are blooming and growing normal. Is this plant sick or was it disturbed by the cold? I could not find anything like it on any web pages.

Help with scoring pattern classes at horse shows?

Hi there,

I have been asked to judge a horse show in August; I am familiar with all the classes, and what the judge is looking for, but having never judged before, I am a little confused with the pointing system.

For example, I am not familiar with the trail scoring card, horsemanship, showmanship, etc.
Do you have any resources that might help judges to properly fill out a scoring card?

What is killing my large plants by eating/cutting them off at the base?

Something is killing my large plants by eating/cutting them off at the base. Just found an 8 year old camellia lying down. This is the third plant in this same area of my yard. Looks like the base of the plant is cut with a straight line. I do not see tracks in the snow by this plant. Not sure if an underground pest is doing this. Could I be causing the pest in my yard by feeding the birds?

Why did mother chicken repeatedly peck her day-old chick's head until she created a 1/2"

gash. The gash is red, has bled slightly, but is not actively bleeding at this time. I took the chick away from mom, put it in a small box by itself with a heat lamp at about 85 degrees, pine shavings, a waterer and a chick feeder. I applied a small amount of triple antibiotic ointment to the wound. The baby is alert, distress-calling like crazy, but seems to be okay for now. Now I don't know what to do from this point on. It seems important to note that prior to this chick, this hen just hatched 2 other chicks - about a day apart, 2 days ago and I found each one dead on the floor of the chicken house. I didn't see wounds on them and I did not witness them being pecked. I would be grateful for any advice you can offer. Thanks so much.

Gardening - Where to Begin

Hello readers, I have been a homeowner for the past 11 years with a strong desire to learn gardening and landscaping. After many failed attempts with the "brown thumb" effect, I am seeking direct, hands-on training by way of an individual coach or small group to teach me the basics. Do you know where I can begin?

Thanks in advance for your feedback and guidance.
