For many years I've followed the MN rule and prepared and reseeded sections of my lawn in the autumn. It comes up beautifully that same autumn but come spring it is dead as can be and I end up reseeding all over again. I normally use seed composed of fescues and ryegrass for drought tolerance and do a fall seeding as recommended. What should I be doing different?
when is the best time to transplant a potted hyacinth the directions are when plant stops blooming and all blooms are gone store in cool dry place until the fall then plant the bulbs an I plant when the weather get warmer which I hope is soon. and where should plant them in the sun or shade? Thank you
Is this a good time to plant grass seed, and do you have test kits for Ph? We live on a lot with many oak trees, and our lawn has many bare spots and moss areas.

I have a flower bed that surrounds a lilac bush. This Lilac bush has had two summers now with a powdery mildew issue which I am working on. It shares this flower bed with an old tree stump that is too close to dig out without significant harm to the bush. The flower bed has a few perennial flowers (columbines included) crocus, tulips, daffodils, and pansy's planted in it. The tree stump started to show a few sprouts of mushrooms (carmel colored and no bigger than a quarter) last year, but I only had to remove them maybe 2 or 3 times in the growing season. Well, you can imagine with this last week of moisture, that all of a sudden i go to inspect the progress of my bulbs, and the stump is surrounded in a HUGE ring of the fungi. I have read to leave them to help with the decay of the dead tree and roots.

We bought a cabin in Cook County, Minnesota. The previous owners keep several raised gardens, see pictures. However, we still work in the cities and although we will come as often as we can, we will not be able to tend a garden. What low maintenance plans could I use in these gear dens for noe?

I just came back from a week vacation and found our empty deer feeder chewed up - both sides and only on the roof area. What animal causes that? If I start putting corn in it again, will the damage stop?
Wondering if we can feed at least one bottle until tomorrow because we purchased this bag thinking that we could feed it to the lamb now everything's closed in our town and it's all we have

Good afternoon, I'm very excited for the warm weather and the prospect of gardening (in a couple of months), but I have found an abundance of some sort of weed in several of my raised beds. I tried to identify it, and think it may be roundleaf buckwheat, but I'm no expert! In fact, I'm probably wrong! I have attached an image for reference. My questions are... 1) should I kill it? I'd like to plant something else there. 2) can it be killed naturally? I would pull by hand but they cover a very large area, and I doubt I could ever get them all. I prefer a natural method. I live in central Oregon between bend and sisters. I really appreciate your help!!!
Do you'll do soil testing of residential yards? If so how do I need to take samples? Also how long does it take to get results and cost?
What are these white colored rod shaped size about 1/4 inch in size? See photo below. We have 12 bushes and al have these white rod shape items on them. What do I need to do?
I've a tall, very old coppiced cedar tree that looks rather puny with its less than vibrant greenery and small cones. 3 different arborists have given me 3 different assessments as to what to do with the tree. One -- who also specializes in large tree removal -- said to cut it down as it will eventually rot, split, and possibly fall onto my house. Another said it was dying but he could treat it with special fertilizers, soil treatment, etc. for $2500 over 18-24 months, and the health of the tree would improve significantly. The 3rd arborist said while it's not the most robust cedar tree, it wasn't dying or it isn't necessarily unhealthy. He suggested adding fertilizer every year and just keeping an eye on it. I've been doing the latter, but when we have severe wind storms, I do worry about the tree coming down. I've lived in my home with this tree in the corner of my yard for 10 years and wonder what you might suggest. Thank you.

I have 2 old oaks in my backyard. One has been on the decline and we had it trimmed way back to keep large branches from crashing into the house. Part was left to keep the other tree from seeing any balance issues(i assume). The trimmed tree is continuing to decline with the bark coming off and these holes in it. There is a chance its a wood pecker but seems like it might be internal. This has not spread to the other tree but is this something I should be worried about? They are large trees and the cost of removing them is not something I care to think about.
Hi there! We bought our first home! It includes a half acre of grass and trees, including 8+ pine trees. The grass looks like it must've been long under the snow - there are patches of thick yellow grass among the green .. When is it appropriate to thatch the yard, how do we know if we need to aerate and when do you do that ..? And .. what kind of maintenance do you recommend under our pine trees to promote grass growth? Branches are trimmed 7-9 feet up the trunks. Finally - how do you know what type of grass you have? I read briefly about warm/cool grasses. Thank you!

I planted a honeysuckle vine last summer and it really thrived and filled out the trellis it was climbing. My well-meaning neighbor cut back the entire honeysuckle today to about a height of 6 inches. 1) Will it die? 2) Is there any special care I can give it to prevent it from dying or to help it grow again this season? 3) I read it probably won't flower this season, is this true? 4) In the future, what care should be given to the plant?
I am experiencing yellow spots and bumps on some of pepper seedlings. It started with some pinhole size yellow spots, then the veins stared yellowing. The worst ones look like crystallized around the veins. Not all the leaves are sick. The plants otherwise look strong and healthy.
Could you help me to identify the problem and recommend a solution?
Thank you for your help!

Hi have about four mature hydrangeas that I need to transplant because we plan to expand our patio. I realize it would have been better to do it while they were dormant, but a host of reasons prevented that. They were pruned back in the fall and now new growth is starting. I need to move them out of the way, hold them in a temporary state above ground until work is complete (about 4 days), then replant them. What suggestions do you have?
I live in a rural area just outside of West Linn and am plagued by two types of wild geranium..a lace leaf variety and cranesbill. I am on 5 acres and each year I have more of it. While it is easy to pull, it keeps coming back and the roadsides are filled with it. I have, also, tried spraying but nothing seems to help. Any advice? Also, I would like to plant something native and fast growing to help overtake it.
