Zestar Apple Tree Pollinator

I have several 5 year old Zestar trees that have yet to produce fruit. I have Honeycrisp, Sweet sixteen trees nearby and a few Snowsweet trees 100 yards away. I am beginning to believe that I will need to plant an earlier blooming pollinator? Thoughts? If so, what would you suggest. Thanks

Holly plants have apparent winter damage. About 60% brown leaves. The female plant stems are green & brown with the male being mostly brown. The brown branches/stems are not brittle. Gave them lots of water in the fall and have been watering this spring. Looks alive. Do I remove the brown leaves or otherwise trim? Other suggestions appreciated!

Container blueberries

My blueberries have yellowing of the leaves (between the vanes). On new growth only. Also browning leaves. Which curl and drop off. Old, and new growth, The soil ph is 3.7 and is a loose mix. Consisting of Compost, peat, garden soil, pine needles. Very fertile container mix. Second year with soil mix, added very little sulphur this year at transplant time. I also use rain water to irrigate. The sun and heat may explain brown leaves, but any help is appreatated. I have North blue, chippiawa, superior, and northland blueberries planted. All seem to have same symptoms, at varing degrees

Want to create microclimate several zones higher

Do you believe it's possible to create a micro climate around a zone 6 or 7 tree, such as a White Mulberry to make it a viable choice for zone 4? I have several high end solar tubes, and was thinking about using them to heat the area around the plant. Am I crazy? Kind Regards, John

Agricultural tile drainage

I have a couple of farms that are 80% clay and concrete tile. We have done bandaid work with plastic tile but I would like to drive up a holistic or master tile plan and learn about gated tile that I hear is on the horizon to understand if would apply. One parcel has an alkali problem at on the north half and erosion problems on the south half.
