Hemlock disease?

A neighbor had a tree taken down and the contractor told her my 2 large hemlock trees have a disease that is affecting Indiana County. He showed her a white colored fungus-looking growth on a branch. Is this a common problem in the area and are there steps I can take short of paying his rather high fee to treat the trees?

Left leeks in ground over winter

I left some of my leeks in the ground overwinter. Some are forming seed heads. 1) Should I pinch them? My leeks did not get as big as in the grocer store. I use them mostly for broth so I would feel OK harvesting them and freezing them. 2) But should I just leave them in the ground and harvest as needed this season? Also,, some of the leeks formed what looks like clumps of grass. 3) Can I separate them and plant them the same as leek seedlings?

Late Blight Tomatos

The past several years we have been decimated by late blight. We understand this is a fungal problem, but don't quite know how to deal with it. Our first two years were in the garden were very productive and clean, but the past three years have been nothing but late season blight. This past year we increased the spacing for more air circulation to keep the plants drier, to no avail. We would prefer an organic method of control, but have read conflicting information. I decided to turn to the area experts . . . you. Any information will be sincerely appreciated. Our garden is located in Burrell Township, just outside of Blairsville.

Death of a 30 year old maple tree

Is there a blight in PA that would cause a 30 year old maple tree to suddenly die? There is some light green scaley material on one side of the trunk and some greener moss on the other side. When it first got leaves in the spring they were sparse and quickly turned brown and fell off. Hoping that this won't happen to another red maple tree on the property.

Seed starting soil

Hello I have a question about starting seeds in my Greenhouse. I purchased Miracle-Gro seed-starting soil and mixed it with a little bit of an organic potting soil and only my cabbage is coming up. I planted peppers,cucumbers tomatoes, but nothing else has come up and it has been 9 days. It is plenty warm, I have watered enough but not too much. I have had success with starting seeds in the past using a Miracle Grow product that was expanding grow but I cannot find it at my local stores so now I have experimented with other soil and I am not having any success. Please help! What is the best medium to start seeds?
