Rubber Plant #780799
Asked January 25, 2022, 5:22 PM EST
Hello. I have a rubber plant that is exhibiting signs of disease. I first noticed the problem this past summer. The leaves of the plant will start to get a small split (photo 1) that will progress to affect the whole leaf (photo 2 & 3). Many new leaves, but not all, seem thinner and some are misshapen. The plant is outside in the summer/early fall and inside during the remainder of the year. I have owned the plant for approximately 12 years and it was not a young plant when I got it. I fear that my plant might be afflicted with foliar nematodes. This is the only plant that I own and I am willing to go to great lengths to save it. There is a product called ZeroTol 2.0 that I am considering trying. The basic chemistry is Hydrogen Peroxide and Peracetic acid, plus surfactants, buffers, etc. My questions are:
1. What do you think is affecting my plant?
2. Is ZeroTol safe to use on a rubber plant?
3. Do you have any other suggestions for things I can do to save the plant>
Thank you so much for your time!

Small evergreen tree (zone 7) #780791
Asked January 25, 2022, 3:19 PM EST
I'm seeing small almost clear drops on some needles of an evergreen plant I bought recently. THE LABEL SAID IT WAS ZONE 7. I thought I'd keep it for the house only during the will terminate and place outside in summer.. The drops are as small as the head of a pin. Is this a sap drop or an insect?

Is this a mountain ash tree #780768
Asked January 25, 2022, 11:39 AM EST
Hi. I am wondering: 1) is this a mountain ash 2) why are the berries already shriveled and dark (zone 6). They were orange. 3) the bark was damaged by a deer. Is it healed? 4) If I transplant it from a crowded shady area to a sunny area this time of year will it have a chance to survive and provide longer lasting berries next year? Thank you!

mycorrhizae fungi #780756
Asked January 25, 2022, 7:42 AM EST
I will be planting 10 canaan fir trees in my back meadow/yard and would like to encourage the growth of mycorrhizae fungi for enhancing the trees' growth. I became interested in this topic since reading Suzanne Simard's book "Finding the Mother Tree".
The trees I am planting will be root bare, I think. Thank you for any insight or resources to contact.

Asked January 24, 2022, 6:44 PM EST
I am building a raised garden for growing vegetables and I want your recommendations for building materials. My impulse is to use 2 x 10 rough cedar. When I went to the lumber yard, I was told that the Wolmanized Outdoor wood is safe for use in the garden. What are your thoughts?
