Among the questions asked:

My husband keeps getting into poison oak or ivy in our yard. What do they look like?

I have two Dianthus plants in hanging baskets. One seemed too full and started to get really brown. I put them in bigger pots about a week and a half ago. However it is browning worse and I think it is close to dead. Is there anything I can do to bring it back?

My family has had rhubarb plants for 5 years now and they barely even grow. Everyone else's I've seen has grown 5 times as big as our plants! What am I doing wrong?

We have these bugs eating up our roses, and neighboring gardens. A neighbor said they are called "beetle flies" or something. How can we get rid of them?

My neighbor’s maple tree always looks like this every year: Left side is dark green, right side is light green. What's up with that?

My broccoli has a lot of holes in it. What’s up with that?
