Hortiscope: 55-year-old dieffenbachia needs a fan to move the air

Sprouting tulips should be left alone in the cold

Hortiscope: Aquarium can be a planter with correct soils
Q: I was looking for information on the Web about walnut trees and found your name. I have a walnut tree in my backyard. Although I love the shade, the tree is a real pain (walnuts, squirrels, sap and broken branches). Is there any way to treat a walnut tree so that it does not bear...
