Johnson County, Texas
My lawn has been treated the last several years with MSMA to control grassburrs. We have planted a garden within the treated area last year and plan on replanting in the same spot this year. I now realize that their is a proposed issue with arsenic leeching into nearby water ways and was wondering if it was safe to continue planting the garden there or is there a chance of the vegetables taking up residual arsenic from the soil making them unsafe for consumption.
It has been a year since the last application of MSMA.
Johnson County Master Gardeners wish to grow Tycoon Tomato plants for our spring sale, but have not found a source of seeds. Could you help?
I want to know what kind of vine this is. I bought a house in Grandview, TX. The house had a hedge all along the front that I pulled it out. This vine was growing next to the hedge and it has very deep roots. Can you tell me what is it and if it is invasive?

My oleanders look dead. Leaves are brown , but stems feel life like and flexable. What can be done to save them, if anything? Plants are about 7 years old. Up until now have been very attractive.

can you please tell me a herbicide that will control sandburs in my yard. I just need spot application, I am not treating a pasture. I have always used MSMA but have been told that it is no longer sold.
I live in 76033 and love St Augustine but there are so many varieties. If I am planting from seed (plan on tilling my front yard) can you make a recommendation and tell me what to expect in terms of how long I will be looking at dirt.
Cut my banana trees back about 4" above ground and covered stumps with mulch last fall. I have now removed the mulch. Do I leave stumps exposed or should they be covered with dirt? Thank you

My Pole beans are doing this (see attachments) They have blooms and beans but new growth doesn't look good. I have sprayed for insects and have never seen any on the leaves. 2nd pic I put my hand behind it so you can see the holes. Not many, mainly shribbled up leaves. Thank you!
