Hello, I have a number of xeric plants that I got through the garden in a box program that are a couple of years old now. This year they have been looking terrible and I can’t figure out what’s going on. I was watering them once/week and tried more often and less often with little change. The only thing that changed was a new sprinkler - I started using an overhead oscillating sprinkler to cover more area. It did seem like I had to increase the time it ran in order to get enough water to soak in past the surface. Are they dying? Thanks!

I have weeds in the garden, not really pulling kind. Have tried weed b gone, done nothing. Not sure I want to try super toxic stuff. Ideas? How do you trim a dogwood? With a hedge trimmer or lopper and how far can you cut down from top, it’s probably 8 feet tall. Thanks

I want to purchase medium size bushes for my property line, 2 acres. I would like bushes that have fall colors of orange, yellow, red, brown and purple. Plus they have to survive the ND winters. Any suggestions?
We have a large mature honey locust tree that, every year for at least the last 10 years, has produced a huge number of pods that fall on our lawn and are a great nuisance to pick up when they fall during fall through early winter. For some unknown reason, this year our tree produced no pods at all. Is this a sign of ill health for the tree? Despite the crazy amount of work picking up the pods, we love our honey locust and hope it is not a sign of it dying. Please advise and give us an idea of what to do, if this lack of pods is a health problem.
