I live in Houston and have a couple of spots in my St Augustine grass that the w**d - alligator w**d is growing in. What do I use to get rid of it that will not kill my grass also?
We're beginning to have a lot of ball moss in our trees. Several years ago when I first noticed it I researched it and the information I found said it was a parachite and would eventually kill the tree. Now I've seen several articles that say the opposite. Now I come to the ones who have the correct answer. Please educate me on ball moss.
I’ve got these growing on a bush outside my house in Spring, TX, and I’m curious as to what they are, and if they are poisonous. They are roughly the size of a walnut give or take.
Hi, can you recommend a reputable nursery for fruit trees and plants in or around Houston? An online store would also be great. Thank you, Dana
Our thoughts and prayers are with you...from one Extension office to the next.
