Cherry trees for high water table

I have a lakeside home in Hamburg Township, and I would like to plant a dozen cherry trees, mixed tart and sweet varieties, on well-drained alkaline soil. The water table is only 2 ft. or so below the soil level. Can you recommend any rootstocks, varietals, etc. that would be most likely to thrive in this environment?

Pre-emergent herbide

I am planning on applying a pre-emergent herbicide to my Northglenn, CO established buffalo-grass turf by the recommended March 15 date. Do you recommend granular or liquid? What if ground temperature or night air temperature falls below freezing-should I wait? and which brand would be best suited for CO? Barricade? or have other brands been tested for better results?

What's wrong with my African Milk Tree?

My African Milk Tree is about 7 ft. tall and is now turning yellow, the leaves are shriveling up and the new growth is drying up; what is wrong? The soil is very sandy, is watered about once a month with about a cup of water. I do have some small stones in the base for water drainage. I notice that many of the stems have like a scab on them instead of nice green. The pot is 7 in. tall by 10 in. round. I lost another huge old African Milk tree several years ago that did the same thing. The plant is at the edge of our East lg. window. Can you help me?

Dying trees

When we moved here 3 years ago, we had 6 coniferous trees across our backyard. One was already dead. Over the next 2 years, the trees have died one by one in a row. Now our big holly bushes are dying also. We don't know why. Any ideas?

possible 2018 caterpillar infestation in N.E.

We’re wondering if it’s too early to guess if we could be in for another scourge of caterpillars this year. We live in a pine barren area in MA rich with a variety of pine trees and other tree varieties. We experienced heavy defoliation in 2016 so many of us paid professionals to spray our property last spring (2017). This winter has been pretty mild with several cold snaps, but not a lot of snow. We have had about 10+” of rain since 1/1/18, but spring hasn’t begun yet. We’re trying to decide yea or nay for tree spraying again this spring, but we need to decide fairly soon. Can you provide any advice?

Trying to get rid of moss in a lawn and need to find out soil pH

I am having trouble getting grass to grow on a hill on my lawn. However, I have an overabundance of moss in the same space. How can I send in a sample of my soil to the cooperative extension so that they can test it for me? I am trying to get rid of moss on my lawn and i need to find out what my soil pH is and whether or not my soil contains the necessary nutrients for growing a healthy lawn. I'm trying to determine if my issue is low soil pH & lack of nutrients or if it's a shade issue.

Japanese Black Pine, Winter Pruning

I was too eager and pruned the bottom part of my Japanese Black Pine yesterday, while it was raining on and off. Today I learned that is not good to prune in the rain since wet weather can spread bacterial spores as well as my rusty shears. What disease should I look out for if I did do some damage?

Japanese maples did not loose their leaves over winter

I believe that the Japanese Maples in my yard typically loose their leaves completely in the winter. I know that I have pictures of them in ice storms in the winter with no leaves. This year they have kept their leaves throughout and they are still rust colored and hanging on. Could you tell me if this is an usual and why?

Annuals that japanese beetles don't eat

I'm thinking ahead to the upcoming growing season and wondering what annual flowers I can use in my pots that the japanese beetles will not eat. Last couple of years they have eaten my impatiens, geraniums, marigolds and petunias. Is there a list out there that will help me pick the right annuals this year?

Sump pump discharge exit...under water

Hi! I live in a home that is built into a small hill. So, when you walk in off the street and go to the back of the home, you are 12 feet above the ground. So, my house is considered a ranch with a walk out lower level. The sump pump discharges into a small creek behind the house. However, when we get several inches of rain, the creek becomes a small stream and the sump pump discharge exit is under water. While I know the system is designed to stop water from flowing backwards, how does the sump pump get rid of water if the exit is under water?

Please help

What is this? And how do I get rid of it? We live in West Texas out in the country, this stuff has taken over everywhere spread like carpet and basically killed what grass we did have, it sticks to everything much worse than the normal grass burrs, gets in the house and the little barbs hurt like the dickens, poor dog has a terrible time getting around even watched a roadrunner go across a patch of it poor little guy didn't know what had gotten a hold of him.

Anyone available in the UP?

Hi Experts!! Thank you for being here!!! We are new to the U.P of Michigan in the Keweenaw Peninsula and we have some questions! HA
1. Is there anyone available to come out and help us access our land? Drainage is an issue, where to put greenhouses/hoophouses, the best crops to plant for the soil and micro-climate, etc are all things we'd like an expert opinion on before we spend all of our resources and get it really wrong!
2. I know there are grants for new farmers, any advise when applying for those resources?
3. Licensing.... every time I get into the state licensing website I get lost and side tracked. I would like to know more about licensing to sell eggs, fruit, veggies and meat to restaurants/grocery stores, specifically the website that I can't seem to find. Ran out of space LOL Thank you!!!
