Do you carry nets for fruit trees. I have birds eating all of my peaches and they are mutilating my peaches. Or can you tell me a way I can keep the birds out of the peaches?

I have just moved in to a home with mature landscaping but no fruit trees. I would like to plant as many fruit and nut trees as I can. Is there any advantage to planting them in the fall or will spring planting be just as good?

In considering an oak or beech, are there any varieties that conform to the following requirements: * Resistant to verticillium wilt * Don't have shallow roots systems that may heave sidewalks (10 ft away) or grow into the foundation of a home (20 ft away) * Don't make a huge mess * Are strong * Thrive in full sun * Attractive fall colors I had almost decided on the Bur Oak which seemed to be rugged, but I then learned that it had an extensive shallow root system in addition to a tap root and wasn't sure if that would cause problems. I also learned that it doesn't have an attractive fall color. I read that Pin Oaks have shallow root systems that could cause problems. I've also read that most varieties of oak, other than Bur, are more disease prone and less tolerant of the climate here. With all of the information on the web I'm kind of lost and hope you can help me. Thank you!

Are the tubers on the ornamental sweet potato vines edible? I found three very large pink ones the size of the orange sweet potatoes for sale in the grocery stores.

I think our trees need some iron, but how do we know how much to use? Our soil is VERY clay and sticky. We tilled in a lot of nutrimulch before we planted anything, but it still dries as hard as a rock (literally) and is very sticky when wet. I don't understand about acidic soil vs. alkaline, or which one is clay. Also, the iron that we have said that it is a soil acidifier. Will that work for the trees and my blue hydrangea bush (to be sure to get blue blooms)? It is from Cook's: Hi-Yield Iron Plus

We have a lot of clay soil, thick and heavy and water puddles in it. We continue to add organic matter both Fall and Spring. Would granular sand, gypsum or lime, improve clay soil in this area? If so, at what rate?
