Fuzzy catepillar

I have an azelea bush that was attacked by whitish fuzzy catepillars. Totally denuded the plant. Sorry no pictures of the critter. 1. Will that kill my azelea. 2. What do you suggest as an insecticide, Sevin dust? 3. If I use Sevin should I provide prophylatic treatment to other ornamentals?

Where to find: fast growing, Blueberry tree

When landscaping our previous home in Beaumont, TX, we planted a pair of what I recall as "blueberry trees" since they were recommended as fast growing trees. Five years later, they have tripled in size and are over the rooftop. I am looking to find it for planting in another location. Can you advise where to try to find it in Southeast Texas?

Apple tree care.

I have a 3 yr. old Gala apple tree that has a "sucker" growing from the bottom of the tree, (the "sucker" has many leaves and is about a foot tall). The Gala has begun to bloom, and I am unsure if I should cut off the "sucker", or wait until blooming has finished (or until winter dormancy)?
