The buds on my camelia start to develope but soon turn brown and fall off. Does anyone know why?
Answer This Question
July 09, 2010
   
Esselean
Most Camelias I see do that. I usually put it down to birds being attracted to one of the few flowering plants of the season and munching them off. However I do notice that it happens more often on the more shaded plants. Perhaps a good pruning after flowering and a bit of seaweed solution during flowering season. Of course that is my answer to most plant problems :D

urine, especially female's, will kill grass...be careful!!
gardengeek
From what I know it might actually be good for plants. It adds Nitrogen and Urea to the soil, both are beneficial. If the animal is eating or drinking toxins, then it might add toxins to the soil.

Mushy Eggplant Fruit Mushy Eggplant Fruit

Jorge Rivas
We planted an eggplant about a month ago (early May/late April) here in deep South Texas. The plant is growing fast and producing quite a bit of fruit. We have not eaten any yet. We noticed that the fruit has golden streaks & is mushy. Is this how the fruit is supposed to be or are we doing something wrong? What do we need to do to make it firm
Answer This Question
June 15, 2010
   
gardengeek
Hi Jorge, It sounds like a type of blight or wilt. This usually happens from over-watering. Wait for a few days before watering or until the top of the soil is very dry. Look for tiny fungal hairs on the soil below and on the fruit. If you have a magnifying glass, take some pictures and upload them here. The sun can usually cook off most of the fungus, unless it is wet or in the shade. Thanks

hi Tom, To manually pollinate a pumpkin, find the part of the flower that has dust-like particles on it. This is the pollen. Then you need to find the female flower of another plant, which will look a bit different than the male, and it won't have pollen falling from it. Just dab the pollen on the female part of the flower. The reason for the a paint brush is to simulate an insect crawling around in there. The female end of the flower or "Stigma" generates a static charge to pull the

explan where is the pollen and also why a brush. why wouldnt a q tip work need more info thanks tom k grand pa
Thunder
Try using a very soft, long bristled artists brush. If you have more than one variety or species to pollinate then use different brushes and label them so that you keep the pollen straight! Be sure to gather the pollen from the anthers and then get it down into the throat of the flower!

Here in Montverde of Lake County near Orlando, I planted a spring garden; sends went into the ground the first week of April. My okra plants look wonderful, but they are very tough, long and dry, and very "woody" too stringy to eat - where did I go wrong? I live next to a lake and irrigation was using sprinklers for about 40 minutes daily. The soil drains nicely, damp but never wet. Soil was tilled twice before planting - tilled, fertilized with 666 and tilled again. Carrots did not even sprout, peppers did not sprout, Corn is looking good and black-eyed-peas, basil, runner-beans, squash are looking good. But the okra has beautiful foilage, but poor quality, dry, woody, stringy, and tough. Any ideas for next season? Cheers

White Spongy Fungus White Spongy Fungus

Michelle McDaniel
I have a white spongy substance growing in one of my flower beds. It was there last spring, so I shoveled out all of the mulch and replaced it with new thinking that it could have been bad mulch. Now it's back. It is white...and has spongy feel to it. It has literally spread throughout a large portion of one of my flower beds. It makes it very difficult to pull weeds because they break off when I try. I have lillies that come up every year in this flower bed and it has not killed those and I planted flowers last year which it did not kill. But...I want it gone! It's impossible to have an attractive flower bed with weeds growing everywhere and mulch that has weird white stuff in it. Any Ideas on how to get rid of this? Thanks so much for time and help!

It sounds like a case of Slime Mold. It doesn't harm your plants. It should only appear this time of year, and then soon disappear. Unfortunately, there is no fungicide that will kill it (It's not really a fungus, it's an Amoeba). images.google.com/images?q=white+slime+mold

I have a twisted hazel in a large pot : it has started growing and putting out new healthy green leaves, but I have just noticed,to my dismay, that the young buds closest to the stems are full of brown decaying material.
I have nipped off as many as I can, but am unsure of the cause.
Could you offer advice and a suitable treatment please? Overall, the plant looks healthy, but I should like to prevent any spread of this unsightly blight.
I bought the plant a year ago and have potted on.

There are different types of Mule Ears, all appear to be very specific as to habitat requirements. For example: El Dorado mule-ears grows only in the gabbro soil region of western El Dorado County; in other words, it is endemic to this soil formation General propagation info is: Mulesear sprouts from underground rootstalks or from the root crown following damage to above-ground portions of the plant. Mules-ears reproduces by seed. Seeds germinate without stratification, but a cool-moist strati

Most asters you can just throw on the top of soil, or just under it and they'll do fine. I've never grown Mules Ears though.

When I looked out at my knockout rose bed this morning, I noticed something I've never seen before. At first I thought it to be a huge, flat pile of "dog do". On cloer inspection, it appeared to be grayish in color. Some of it had attached itself to a stalk of a rosebush. When I turned it with my rake, it was a bright yellow on the underside. In a panic, I raked it out of the bed as soon as possible, but in doing so I am afraid I might have spread spores of whatever it is. Please help me identify this and tell me what to do about it. I would be most grateful. Thanks, Lillian
