I planted the above tree last may. I’m worried that it may be dead this spring, for I see no buds yet. When do they appear? Should I be concerned. The tree is about 20 ft. High.

Parasitic nematodes #682593
Asked March 04, 2021, 2:53 AM EST
Is there a way to diminish the effects of nematodes in my backyard garden? My three bean plants died quickly and the effects on 20+ okra plants was notable last summer.. The leaves fell off and okra pods diminished.
Is it possible to use beneficial nematodes to compete with the parasitic species?

Pollinator Meadow #682588
Asked March 03, 2021, 10:52 PM EST
We just bought a home in Easton with about 3 acres and its mostly lawn. We would like to convert a good portion of the property into a variety of pollinator meadow/wildflower gardens. 2 question:
1 - Is there any type of program or organization that can help me decide what seed/plants to buy and where to buy them?
2 - Is there any type of bee keeper organization in Talbot county that can help in getting us set-up with an beginners hive or two?
Thank you! ~EL

Lawn Treatment #682584
Asked March 03, 2021, 10:03 PM EST
I am looking for some guidance on weed remediation, aeration and overseeding. Mainly, I’m looking for guidance on timing (month(s)) for aeration and seeding and recommended herbicides for weed remediation in our southernmost lawn. I will aim to provide a soil sample to a local extension soon.
I believe it would be best to put down a Preen early season weed preventer, then aerate and overseed a few weeks later; however, I could be completely off on this. I have provided some images of the weeds we see below. Thank you for your time.

chickweed "infestation" #682581
Asked March 03, 2021, 9:24 PM EST
A new weed has popped up in my landscape over the last couple of years, and I think it is chickweed -- tiny white flowers on rounded mounds of tiny green leaves, with seeds that pop off the flowers and spread all over in the spring if I don't get to it early enough.
I have it this spring and have been pulling it. I believe it is a reseeding annual, is that right? Do you recommend a preemergent such as Preen to control, and it is too early to apply Preen or another preemergent agent now?

Cucumber or watermelon #682576
Asked March 03, 2021, 8:17 PM EST
Any horticulturalists please advise. This was growing on my cucumber vine. (lower left growth) It looks like it started out as a watermelon. The original plant in that container was a watermelon plant that died before it bore fruit. Mysterious?
