    Help Identifying Crab Apple Disease ...

    A big boxwood (progression)

    A big thank you! Poink, Wanted to thank you for the advice on voids in the soil with large collected material. Sure enough, when I started chop sticking and probing/pressing, several depressions or voids caved in a 1/2 inch or so. I don't know whether or not it will fix my wilting issue on...

    To defoliate or not to defoliate?
