twisted hazel disease twisted hazel disease
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.

Thank you.

You could upload an image if you have one. If you have a magnifying lens, you can take a closer look. Look for tiny bugs like aphids, thrips, spider mites etc. and look for tiny fungus hairs. Thanks
tree leaf fungus maybe? poisenus berries in the yard? tree leaf fungus maybe? poisenus berries in the yard?
I have found tree leaves on the ground with white and purple towers they protrude up and are flat on the top. My concern is I have planted an extensive garden and more than that I have a dog who is like a kid to me. Any ideas on what this is and is it dangerous? One more thing this just started growing in my yard this year as well, there are small red berries that are growing through my clover they almost look like a strawberry but they are circular again I rescued my dog from the ASPCA and want to have him around for a long time.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to read and reply.

Most indoor plants can be grown outdoors depending on the local climate. Calla Lilies do well in a sunny to partly shaded garden bed and require minimal care.

urine, especially female's, will kill grass...be careful!!
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.

I have yellow flowers and cannot seem to find out what they are - I would like to get more! They bloom in the Houston "winter" right up to March some years. On 18-24" stem, with multiple small bunches of buds along the stem and at the end. The flower opens in a spiral, and the petals overlap. Short stamen but visible. Very bright yellow. Hope I can upload a picture. Please help!

You can clip them when they start to wilt, but if you want it to go to seed, then you'll want to let them dry before clipping. Some types need to stay dry for months, other might need to freeze before the seed becomes viable.

Common names can be deceptive thus the need for the use of scientific names. Take the tea tree for example. There are two very different plants in Australia that I know of which are both commonly called tea tree. One being a tree in the Myrtaceae called Melaleuca Alternifolia from which tea tree oil is extracted the other also in the Myrtaceae family is a genus of shrubs small trees (Leptospermum) which was named 'tea tree' due to early settlers using the leaves from the shrubs as a tea.

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
tom k
explan where is the pollen and also why a brush. why wouldnt a q tip work need more info thanks tom k grand pa
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!

mulberries mulberries

is a mulberry poisonous

Answer This Question
May 12, 2010
All parts of white mulberry, except for the ripe fruit, contain a milky sap (latex) that is toxic to humans. Although humans may consume ripe mulberry fruit, ingestion of unripe fruit can result in stomach upset, stimulation of the nervous system and hallucinations. The sap is also an irritant, and contact with leaves and stems may result in varying degrees of skin irritation. White mulberry pollen is highly allergenic and contributes to hayfever.
Mullberries are said to be a little toxic when they are unripe, but after they are ripe, they are edible, and delicious. Make sure you have your Mullberry tree properly identified.
