Where have all the spiders gone.

I have been an avid gardener for many of years, and this is the first year that I can comfortably work in my flower bed without being scared away by spiders. I see none in my beds, maybe a few little ones with webs on the outside, but I live in the country and have only seen one wood spider, and it was inside. Could the temp changes kill them, going from hot to cold? I am not complaining, I am just curious, and the moles this year are having a field day.

Under Walnuts

I am looking for shade plants that THRIVE under black walnuts. I have the list of tolerant plants. The only successes I've had so far are epimedium (my favorite) and euonymus (which I tolerate). The list that does well short term and then die includes astilbe, hostas, solomon seal.

Can dianthus survive heat from an air conditoner?

I want to plant some dianthus under my window air conditioner. It is 1 ft and half off the ground, but it blows heat down to the ground. Will dianthus survive this? I have pink and firewitch.

Have been trying to rejuvenate an old orchard for 2 years and planted this new Transparent in a different location spring 2014. They both have the same malady. I have looked on line for spray regimen and have not been able to find that. Can you narrow down when and what to spray with. I did dormant spray 2X spring 2014 and once this spring due to weather.

Mowing over black walnuts in yard?

If you mow over (large amounts) of black walnuts in yard and they stay in the yard, will it kill the grass underneath them? Grass is not healthy anyway. Many walnut trees in yard.
