First, try to tighten the bolts securing the tank to the bowl. If that does not stop the leak, you can buy replacement parts at your local home improvement or hardware store. Before you go to the store, count how many bolts secure the tank to the bowl so you know which repair kit to buy.

Hello Eileen, W/D here.
Palms will reabsorb some of their nutrients when fronds are shed, even over winter. If possible, you should let the ugly fronds go, and allow the trunk to take back what's stored in the frond stems. When they become brown, or less green, or droop, they can be pruned. This is usually found with the lower fronds. If upper fronds exhibit these symptoms, it is usually from the effects of winter, but the same rules apply, except that you can trim partial fronds to get rid of the brown leaves.
The acid test for a palm is, if there are shoots in the middle of the canopy protruding, to pull on them firmly, but not aggressively. If the shoots pull out easily, the palm is probably dead. Some winters are more brutal than others, and palms take the worst of them. We double-cover our palms, and place lights inside of the covering that we make, and the larger ones have made it over winter now for about 5 years. I have used incandescent Christmas lights wrapped around the trunk and hung in the canopies, then covered and it worked well too. One friend slaved his Christmas lights to his pool pump control panel, only to lose his palms. Seems that he was using LED lights, which put out no heat. Queen palms have died in droves this, and last year, as have unprotected Robellinis. Washingtonians and Pindos have fared better. If you live in a coastal zone, you still need to cover and keep your palms warm through the worst of winter. We have used fitted sheets on the smaller canopies to contain the fronds, then covered that with plastic tarps, weighted down on the sides to form a mini greenhouse, and it works pretty well, but it's inconvenient. With spring here, there will be a lot of new outdoor umbrellas purchased, and the old ones will be pitched. We already have picked one up from a neighbor, and will erect it over one of the palms, then cover it as described. The thinking here that it should be much easier (and quicker) to protect the palms via this method.
As for the fungus noted, try light applications of a fungicide, but check first with a local nurseryman to see what works best in your area.
Hope that this is of some help.
Best regards, (and please rate this solution), --W/D--

Check plant stores for traps. Maybe a Japanese Beetle trap will catch them.

6FT. WHEN PLANTED NOW HUGE! SHORT NEEDLE IT WAS PLANTED WHEN I WAS 10 YEARS OLD IT WAS OUR CHRISTMAS TREE IN 1960.


Many pine tree species are fast growers.

Moving a large tree like that is very, very expensive because a crane and large truck are required. It can also be easily damaged. It is much easier to use an artificial one which is light and can be stored and re-used.

Write to the mayor in the cities you think might be interested and the Mayor's office will pass it to the appropriate member of staff to consider and reply. They are typically short of money and you will be very unlikely to get a positive reply.

Can I use diluted Roundup in evergreen carpet?


Hiya while I am not sure of what you mean exactly as an evergreen carpet I do know that if you want a plant or tree to survive don't use round up near it. Roundup is an extremely strong effective herbicide which will kill any living plant (more precisely the leaves) it touches. It also takes very little to kill a plant or tree.

Having said all that. I have had an issue with Lilly of the valley taking over as our property was vacant for 20 years the plants went unchecked all that time. I have tried just about everything else nothing even slowed them down. Of course they are a shade plant and growing under all of my trees that lined the property and are well over 100 years old.

  • I got a large pop bottle and punctured 2 holes in the lid and added the Roundup mix into the bottle.
  • I collected several sheets of plastic and newspaper. It is my understanding as long as the chemical doesn't touch the other plants or roots they should be ok.
  • What you want to do is to apply the round up to the leaves ( no need to soak everything down) Just a few good drops to the leaves of the target plants should do the trick.
  • Use the plastic or paper to protect the other plants you want to keep. Wait a week to ten days and you should see them begin to die. Protect all plants from accidental contact. since accidents occur what I did was immediately break or cut the infected leaf then flush the plant really well with water. This worked like a charm for me.
I can honestly say I am finally winning the battle. This year I only had about 2% of the offending plants appear. I am hoping none show up next year but if one or two do survive they wont the next year.

I hope this helps if you have any further questions please feel free to ask. Happy gardening

Pine tree diseases such as rust check. could i see.


Could be wind-burn. Some tree's don't like the wind as it dries out moisture in the needles. Move the plant or plant protective shrubs around it.

What can I do about the cherry tree I have that is losing leaves one branch at a time and is dripping with a dark red sap like substance. How can a fix it?


First thing to do is check for insects. You may need a magnification glass. Look for spider webs on it. These are caused by aphids though, not spiders. If you find them, you need to spray with an insecticide that does not poison any fruit. You can use soapy water too and or cedar oil to get rid of aphids. Other diseases of cherry trees include fungal and bacterial infections. These are harder to treat.

What are backyard birds?


Backyard birds are birds who visit your backyard. Which birds visit your backyard depends on where you live, the environment, and what foods may be available. Some birds will eat from feeders while, others only eat from the ground or from fruit/flower trees/bushes.

Several years ago, I created a wild bird garden for my mother in S. Florida. I have 20+ feeders, 3 water fountains, and a few trees/plants including, mango tree, hibiscus, berries, and more. We are visited daily by dozens of Monk parakeets aka Quaker Parrots, Blue Crown Parrots, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Doves, Cardinals, and more!

I can answer most questions about backyard birding (i.e.; foods, types of birds) for anyone interested in this hobby!
