maple leaves culing in and turning brown

My maple tree is old but the leaves arrived in the spring and were healthy. We have had much rain so I do not think it is because of drought. Noticed yesterday that more and more leaves are curling in and turning brown or black.

Bindweed control in Idaho

Are there sources of the bindweek control mite or moth in Idaho? Does anybody know of uses in Idaho of biological bindweed eradication or control. Our community garden is infested in a way that seems impossible to deal with.

My honeysuckle!

Please help me save my honeysuckle. It is not very old, about 3 weeks since I brought home from the nursery. Now it appears stressed. I have leaves curling under while some curl up (which is confusing). After inspection, I have noticed some tiny black specs on the underside of leaves. It has also stopped flowering and some drooping of leaves. They appear pin head size and are raised, I can rub them off. Not sure if they are fungus, insect eggs or something else. It is in partial sun because I thought it was stressed. I have been watering 2x per day as the nursery was, here in dry climate AZ.

Splitting bark and wilting leaves on cut leave Japanese maple

I purchased a great specimen of a cut leave maple and last year it did extremely well. In the fall last year I noticed that the bark was peeling and read that it be best to leave it to heal over. This year the leaves came out in a wet late spring and in looking at the tree leaves I noticed that they seemed wilted and not as brilliant as last year. What can I do to assist in this healing process?

Why has Graham Thomas taken early retirement .?

I planted Lonicera Graham Thomas approx. 8 years ago alongside my garage wall and then trained it over a pergola. The result was stunning, rapid growth producing wonderful yellow blooms. I lightly pruned each season. Over the last couple of years the rate of growth has slowed and pruning has become unnecessary, flower production has considerably reduced and those that do appear do not have the same intensity of colour than previously. I have a Pyracantha growing about 6 foot away and the area is under planted with lavender. Any suggestions as to how I can motivate Graham .?
