Asked March 03, 2021, 9:38 AM EST
Hi, after the recent extreme cold weather I noticed that my holly bushes look distressed with browning and dead looking leaves. I don’t know for sure that the cold was the cause, that is an assumption m. I’m wondering if this is recoverable and if there is anything I can do to aid the recovery of these plants?

Pre-emergent and spring aeration? #682442
Asked March 03, 2021, 7:12 AM EST
If I aerate an area in the spring and apply a pre-emergent afterwards (We use Dimension) will the pre-emergent still be effective? I know not to aerate afterwards but I did not know if I could do it beforehand without reducing the effectiveness of the application.

Can I Transplant my Hibiscus tree? #682438
Asked March 03, 2021, 1:09 AM EST
I have a Confederate Rose tree that my father planted for me close to 20 years ago. I’m moving into a new house in about 2 months, and I’m wondering if I can take the tree (or at least part of it) with me. I know you’re supposed to make cuttings and root them at a different time of year, but I didn’t know I’d be moving until two weeks ago. I don’t have access to the original tree or to the one from which the original tree was taken. I expect my current house to sell by early June at the latest, so I might not have access to my tree after that time. Any advice?
