Aggressive, native groundcover that deer do not like

I am looking for an aggressive groundcover to outcompete an invasive houtynnia (chameleon plant) in an area of my yard. I cannot afford to dig up the entire area, and have found repeated applications of Roundup as was previously suggested by your office to be ineffective. I want a native plant, that is very deer resistant. Would ostrich ferns or equisetum fit the requirement? The area is a dry, sunny area, that will have limited access to hand watering. Thanks for any help. Sandy Laden

Japanese Maple

A Japanese Maple at my Rockville home has lacked vigor coming through the last few winters. Some branches are completely defoliated. Should I try to trim it or start over? I am attaching photos. Thanks for your consideration of this question.

Growing indoor herbs

I purchased some herbs from our local big box store - basil, parsley, thyme and rosemary. I planted them in potting soil and watered them when the topsoil was dry. The basil and parsley get the morning sun and the thyme gets afternoon sun. I have already lost the rosemary. The thyme and parsley have white on the leaves. I checked for aphids but did not see any. Also, the basil is lymph and not thriving. Could you please advise me on these problems? Thank you

Seeking Information on Starting Backyard Apple Orchards

Hello, I have a quarter acre of land and am interested in planting apple trees. I mainly want them for the fruit, but also to provide food and habitat for wildlife and insects. I live in Montgomery County, Maryland. Any information or resources about how to get started in such a venture would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Adam Takoma Park, Maryland
