SOURCE: My cherry tomato plants are 8


Sounds like it could be Nitrogen defficiency ..
"Nitrogen deficiency:Very slow growth of plants, followed by progressive pale green color moving from tip and young leaves back to more mature leaves. Leaves are small, thin, perhaps with purple veins. Stems eventually brown and dry off. Flower buds yellow and drop. Apply N immediately"All you ever wanted to know about tomatoes but were too afraid to ask:

When transplanting you will often have at least some temporary damage....
In your case being that there is new growth to the trees the damage is only marginal and temporary...
Continue in the path you are on and give them some food (fertilizer) for the cooler months ahead...
Come spring they will be in good shape and take off again...

SOURCE: Hi there, we have recently

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--

SOURCE: I have planted some sage

Cut them with the stem.Do not cut ALL of it.Leave some to grow.When you get it cut place it all in a brown paper bag.Close the bag.Everyday open the bag and shake it.This will dry it so you can keep it for a long time.When it is dry,I use a tobacco grinder and grind stems and all.I then store it in a plastic freezer bag and freeze it.Just in case you need something sage is good on.Sword fish,or any fish with the same texture.Marinate the fish in olive oil,with 3 fresh lemons,cut and squeeze them into the oil,then add plenty of the sage.Wait for 24 hours or more,then grill.

Will it and can it kill a tree

From what I understand about Roundup, it is a contact herbicide that does not affect other plants through the soil. It works best when sprayed on foliage. It has to be injected or painted full strength on trunks and stems to have much of an effect on healthy trees or shrubs. Trees take a verry long strong dosage to be hardly effected.
