I have approx. 8 year old hydrangea plants, that had big beautiful mop head type flowers for several years. The last couple of years, I have noticed the majority of the flowers have changed to lace cap style flowers. Did I do something wrong? Could it be a soil issue? I'm thinking maybe it is a hybrid that is reverting back to the dominate parent style. please help!
What type of grass would you recommend to grow if you have a Maple Tree directly in the middle of your lawn? My husband likes Fescue, but it doesn't do very well in the summer. I live in Norfolk, Va. Thank you for your time. K. Bean

I'm trying to identify a tree in my back yard (see attached .JPG). I would also like to know how large the tree will grow? Thank you!

I am in Norfolk Va and have a 15 year old Celeste and Brown Turkey fig tree- I understand the Celeste and Brown Turkey can get "10 to 20 feet high."? That is quite a range- can I keep my tree under 10 feet without too much excessive pruning? Are there pitfalls to pruning? Is it true that I am supposed to strip off the large leaves to help the fruit develop? i
ALSO - Do I have a snowball's chance in hell of keeping a Myer Lemon semi-dwarf tree alive in a sunny fenced corner of a yard if I burlap, heap leaves on it, Christams lights, poprtable green house or WHATEVER to keep it alive during cold winters? (Norfolk- I think zone 7a?)
Would like to start a new plant from this one.

I have a large bed of well-established English ivy that I need to eradicate. I've tried before to cut it and pull it out but it came back even lusher. It is growing up a large pine tree and when I try to tear it off, it breaks part-way up.
I would rather not use herbicides unless there is no other good alternative. Also, I've read that herbicides used near pine trees are especially harmful for the tree. What can I do to get rid of this ivy?
I have been told that I might have brown patch in my fescue turf grass. May I send grass samples somewhere to determine if it is brown patch?
My mother has a problem with something burrowing in her yard. She's not sure what is causing them and what to do about them
