I am trying to figure out what the peach colored dahlia/rose like flowers were growing on the vine like shrub on the N side of the house I grew up in. I have never seen them again. I believe they were fragrant as well. Bunches of flowers with very fluffy small heads (1-1.5") growing in abundance! Please advise if you can. Thanks.

I'm very much the novice, but could they possibly be truffles? I've only seen truffles once, but the ones I think I saw were somewhat like you describe.
Yes, they were small and round like balls.
Were they shaped like balls?
They were white and round about 1\" in diameter. No gills. There were about 80 of them.
Were they round? did they have gills? how many of them were there?

This is a kind of insect called a “scale insect,” named because they secrete a waxy covering (that powdery white stuff) that they then hide under and feed on plants…hence they look like scales on a plant. This kind is also known as a “mealybug.” The scientific name of the family for this particular guy is Pseudococcidae. These are pretty common pests. If you don’t have too large an infestation, you can actually control them mechanically (*squish*). Some people also try dabbing running alcohol on

Maintaining a Japanese gardeners work, and distinguishing weeds in Okinawa
I recently moved in to a home in Okinawa that was owned by a Japanese gardener. He left a good amount of his plants, shrubs, and a few trees behind when he moved. I really want to keep up the appearance of what he left, and I would like to start planting some herbs and flowers to fill in when he took with him.
The one problem I am having is I can not distinguish what is a weed and what might be something worth keeping. I'd love to get in there and clean it up, but I am hesitant.
Any advice is appreciated!

I did the same thing here with this site. I took images of every plant in my yard, organized them into individual pages, then slowly identified them with the help of others. I wouldn't pull anything up until it is identified.

Grasshoppers Grasshoppers
My garden has quite a few grasshoppers that are eating my split leaf philodendrum. How can I get rid of this pest?
Answer This Question
August 21, 2010
Domestic cats can live off of grasshoppers and other insects. Lubber grasshoppers however are toxic to just about all creatures. The best way is to remove them by hand. A large sheet or quilt can be used to round them up in larger numbers. Make sure you wear gloves, as some Lubbers spray toxins when threatened.
Yes, we have multiple bird feeders in our yard, but I'm talking BIG grasshoppers - Lubbers and they're about 6in long!! I'm not sure a bird could handle one of these monsters.
Birds are natural predators of grasshoppers. Do you leave out multiple bird feeders?

I have some plants growing below my deck, possibly from seeds from a bird feeder, but I have no idea what they are. The leaves are deeply lobed like a watermelon leaf, it has bright yellow flowers with 5 petals and a long curved pistil, and the stems are covered with thorns. The plant is 6-8 inches in height. I am new to this website, but will try to upload some pictures.

Compost odor control Compost odor control
We bought a house with a garden spot that is empty of plants. The soil smells horrible. Is there anything we can do to get rid of the odor? It is very near the house and smells so bad we can't sit on the porch!
Answer This Question
July 29, 2010
Thanks so much!
Sounds like they've put manure down that wasn't ready. I would add something alkaline to it. If you have a fireplace, you can add the ashes. Lime will help neutralize the smell. Or you can dig out another area, then bury the stinky stuff there (mix it with various other organic stuff) to turn into compost, and use it next year.
Can I save a Hemlock tree? Can I save a Hemlock tree?
I have Hemlocks trees that are destroyed by these wolly blight bugs. Does anyone know if a tree can be brought back after these bugs have destroyed 80% of the pine needles? I don't want to waste time & money if they are unsavable.
Answer This Question
July 29, 2010
As long as there is live wood, I would go for it! Hemlocks can withstand hard pruning; i would get a pro to do it unless you are skilled, as they are big and often have dead branches collecting at the top. you MUST make sure all your pests are gone. You can use a combo of chemicals and natural predators to remove them. I also recommend that you spray the tree with water a couple of times a week to keep the woolies off. Chem works for about three years, but I would follow the advice on this webs
