New to area

I have recently moved to a piece of property (38 acres primarily pasture) about 11 miles south of Westcliffe. I am completely new to rural living. There is a chicken coop that is in good shape and I would like to raise a few chickens. Also I would like to start keeping bees.

Could you point me to resources to help me get started?

Also, there is a very small aspen grove west of my house. Should I water that? If so how often and is there anything I should do to protect it from deer during the winter.

Norway Maple

I have a very large Norway Maple on my property. There appears to be (from my limited research) sunscald on some areas of the trunk as well as black trunk in some small areas. I became aware of this when I noticed several different types of mushrooms growing on one of the lower limbs. The mushrooms have since fallen off, but am concerned about what to do and when may be the appropriate time of year to take any action. Thanks in advance for your help.

Wire grass and bagging clippings

1) I was recently told by a certified horticulturist that grass clippings should be bagged. He felt that cut and drop was propagated by environmentalists and other interested parties who did not want to over fill landfills with grass clippings. 2) I have been fighting a perennial weed for 20yrs. I have used round up personally and had professionally applied it to no avail. Is there anything on the marker to other than suppressants like tupersan? I think that weed is wiregrass. It looks like in early am before the sun really rises , a lighter green shade than my tall fescue. The weed is soft to the touch and pulls up easily. No grub activity this year

Hello Sirs,

we are naïve entrepreneurs in floriculture sector. we have planted carnation in greenhouse a year back. first harvesting has been done, but the plants severely attacked by wilting, probably by fusarium wilt. the disease was so severe that we were forced to remove all to its branches and leaves reducing the size of plant to its main stem size. now I doubt that these plants will ever grow to its fullest size and bear flower. we really appreciate your guidance on treating this kind of disease and how to apply effective nutrients so that plant will thrive healthy and bear flower.

Dry Cypress Trees

I was wondering whether it was normal for cypress trees to slightly discolour and for the needles to be fragile shortly after planting. We have 2 in good compost in large plant pots and have watered these when we have had really dry spells but the trees are very dry. Is this normal?
