Mushroom

This was found in our yard near Nazareth, PA. The first picture was taken August 16. My husband says that he thinks the first mushroom disappeared and then the second one grew. I thought that it started as a puffball on the ground with no stem, but now I'm not sure. The second and third pictures are from August 30. This is further information from Gayle Nace. Is this the same mushroom or two different ones? thanks, Gayle

issue with Japanese Beetles

Hi, i live in Nazareth, Pa, Zone#6. I have (3) Eggplants, one each in large outside containers. Last year the Japanese Beetle destroyed my nice basil plants but this year they prefer the leaves of my eggplants! **I have next to them a JB Trap, "Spectracide brand". Yes... the JB's are all over that but they are still all over the leaves of my eggplants as well and doing a number on them! **Please help me out here. What else can i do? I have a bucket of dish detergent water that i sometimes swat the beetles into but i can't stand outside all day long doing this. ** I mean i have hundreds of the beetle swarming around! Seems like ever since i put that trap out with its lure.....that I’m getting even more beetles! **Will the beetles eating the eggplant leaves destroy my (fruit) production? **Is there some type of (homemade) NON TOXIC solution that i can put into a spray bottle to use to either kill them or to deter them away? >>Thanks for taking the time to address my issues here! Have a great Day! Thomas

Star Roses

I am a nursery that carries numerous Star Roses. We seem to have some type of growth that we can't figure out what it is or what to do but it is spreading through our inventory.

Speakers Bureau Request

Good afternoon, I am contacting you to see if it would be possible to have one of your speakers present at our community. Moravian Hall Square in Nazareth PA is a Continuing Care Retirement Community. I believe we may have had one of your speakers here in the past. We would be looking for you to present under our Senior Pathways program. Senior Pathways is a series of informative programs covering many topics of interest to seniors. We also promote the event in the local media and invite people from the larger community to join us. We would be interested in having a speaker present 'Edible Landscaping'. I am currently working on filling the calendar for 2014. Senior Pathways is always held on the third Tuesday of each month at 10:30am. I wonder if a speaker would be available for our February program, Tuesday 18th February which would be timely as people look forward to the Spring and planning their gardents etc. We are a not for profit organization, many of our speakers will present at no charge. We are able to make a small honorarium payment if that would be suitable. Please confirm if you are able to help us with this program. Best regards, Liz Brandl Community Relations & Outreach Coordinator Moravian Hall Square 175 W North Street, Nazareth PA 18064 lizb@moravian.com 610.746.1327

Dying birds nest spruce and eastern redbud.

What is killing this and is there a way I can stop it? The birds nest is about 13 years old. This spring it looked to be dropping needles and I hit it with some Seven. This does not seem to have helped. The first picture is earlier this year and second is this week. The red bud has been in the ground one year. Bloomed well this spring and has since gotten brown edges.
