The Q&A Archives: Questions From many people.

Question: The new leaves on my bonsai Sago are now about 2-3 ft and very spindly. The old leaves were only about 1' long and have died off. The new LONG and spindly leaves seem to be having difficulty opening up... Should I transplant it to a larger pot?

And The 9 feet tall holly tree at our new house developed beautiful clusters of blue berries this summer. Now, however, they are shriveling up, and some are dropping off. I am at a loss as to know what to do to save the few that are left. I surely hope you can help me on this matter.

And I lost a purple plum this spring, the leaves shriveled and the bark turned very black and separated. I took the tree out but now I have an ornamental pear that is starting to exhibit the same symptoms. Is there anything I can do to save this tree that we love?

And our peach tree had peach leaf curl, we sprayed the area with an insect killer and the portion that we sprayed the leaves turned brown but the top is green and flourishing. I?ve found articles about the peach leaf curl and I think I understand that but we have gobs of jell a sticky sort of stuff coming out of the trunk and branches-can you tell me what that is and if we need to do something, what to do?

And I planted a camellia bush (Zone 7) almost 10-11 months ago. The plant itself is thriving and growing great and seems very healthy. My question is: why has it not bloomed? What month do they bloom?


Answer: Hi Sam, Again, please ask these as separate questions. I did answer your camellia question this morning. I hope you received the answer.
