Does cornmeal stop Horsetail weed from coming back?
We have tried various brand seeds for both Zuchini and Yellow squash with very little success. Lots of big green leaves but essentially no fruit. And then we end up with downy mildew.
are there recommended varieties that we could try

We have this orange stuff all over the house. The shower curtain pictured is worst. But it’s also on walls, ceiling, everywhere. It wipes off easily but does leave a slight stain on white walls. It’s only on the top of the shower curtain rod. The underside is completely clean. What is it????

How do I reduce/prevent Japanese beetle damage on organic grapes? I've read about spraying a Neem solution on leaves before and during beetle infestation. I've seen mesh rolled up on posts that cover the leaves in beetle season. Other options? Is Neem effective? Readily available at garden/hardware stores? Where would one buy the mesh?

Hi! I have built some raised beds for my backyard and would like to fill them. I am wondering if there are any good resources to buy compost, topsoil, peat moss, vermiculite etc. to fill my beds in bulk so I am not spending hundreds of dollars at a box store. Thanks!

My 91 and 87 year old parents have been successfully raising and harvesting 300+ Haralson apples each year. Two summers ago they lost one of their two trees and only got 5 apples last year. They know they need two trees for pollination. Is there anything they can do to get a better harvest other than planting another tree? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
How do I get rid of this in my two year old lawn? When should I begin the project and how do I go about re-seeding with grass seed that will do well in some sun and some shade? We have three lawns to do...
I have eleven abtoes blue redwood in my backyards and one is showing a lot of droopy limbs and some weird looking growths. We had a drought two years ago, thinking it could be stressed. I have a neighbor who hates them thinking he could be trying to kill them. I am afraid that the other redwood could be in danger. they are about 20 years + and have done great till know.

Hi, I currently oversee the care of a 4 acre residential property on the east side of the Olympic Pennusula (Poulsbo WA). Approximately 2.5 acres is forested with primarily Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, Cherry, Alder, Maple and a few Madrona. The firs have been dying at an accerated rate (lots of blow downs), involving almost all of the existing firs. Laminated Root Rot was diagnosed. Is there any way to save the few healthy, sizeable firs? It's so tragic to watch and I feel helpless. Thanks, Shiela

Please identify this plant. It may or may not be some kin to a cruciferous. I hate to eradicate it if it is edible. It appeared in my garden in the summer/autumn 2017 and persisted through the winter. Both dates are represented in the attached photos. There may be some f2 mustard plants nearby in the photos. Thanks.
Two years ago, I landscaped my yards with Plant Select perennials. At the time, I put 66 cu yds compost amended soil in an 6675 sq ft yard for new sod as well as plants, shrubs & trees in borders. Since the soil in Aurora is clay with little top soil, I am wondering if I should top dress the plant beds with 2" amended soil or not this spring? When pulling back 4" gorilla mulch over plant beds, I see no evidence of any amended soil that was originally tilled in.
How do Plant Select plants do when the soil is not amended each year? Or am I wondering if Plant Select plants were developed to adapt to Colorado clay soils are they not in need of further soil amendments?
BTW I have not used dry or liquid fertilizer on the plant beds since planting 2 years ago. What would you recommend and how often?
Would really appreciate your recommendations.

Hi there, I would like to try to grow a couple of apple trees. I have a couple of questions - 1. septic mound - how far away should the tree be to be considered safe? 2. Do ornamental crab-apple trees provide the same pollinator benefits - so could they be used as my 2nd tree if I got say a Frostbite tree? 3. if not - would you have a good suggestion for a 2nd smaller tree to go with a Frostbite variety? Thanks so much!

I've read many posts about crane flies hanging out at the door. People have answered about how to kill them, however I want to know why they are hanging out at the doors. It's like they're drawn to something. Does anybody know why?

What the title says: I had a fairly large, straight pine tree (type uncertain) come down in the recent windstorm. I would like to sell it for lumber rather than simply cutting and disposing of it. I live in Glenn Dale, just west of Bowie. Do you know of any buyers of trees in the area?
