Better/alternate answer to previous question re. neighbors and pollinator garden

In answer to the question:

Preparing for a pollinator yard

You suggested leaving a border of grass between the pollinator garden and the neighbors' property line. I agree with talking to the neighbor first. But there's a better solution than leaving a border of grass that needs to be mowed. I would say, plant a border of Penn Sedge, thick enough that your wildflower roots won't spread to the neighbor's yard. That way you don't have to mow, and it will look neat and tidy.

Moss on garden soil

In all my years we have never seen moss growing on our garden soil. I'm guessing it's becuz this year has been so wet. Is that what you think? More importantly is it good or bad for the soil? We are in SE MN. Thanks

No blooms on my apple trees

I have patiently waited 7 years for a sapling honeycrisp tree to flower and produce apples. There have been zero blossoms. At the time I planted a golden delicious and honeycrisp. One tree died and we replaced with another honeycrisp. There is also a crabapple tree of some variety within 20 feet of each in my backyard in Rochester, MN. I’m trying to figure out if I should keep waiting, plant more trees, or cut them down and start over. Help!

Peach tree disease?

My peach tree (red haven) thankfully survived the winter but now appears to maybe have a disease? There are 2 branches that have bulbs of sap coming out (this is new since Friday) and several of the leaves are turning orange as if it’s fall. There were plenty of branches that didn’t make it but overall the old growth survived. I planted the tree fall of 2017. It thrived last year with the exception of some Japanese beetles, I managed them best I could by drowning them daily. It is planted near an apple (haralson) tree. Any idea? Sounds like it might have canker? Thank you.
